baby Q bump watch - week 30

you guys. I feel like I just found out I was pregnant yesterday, and now I'm only 10 weeks away (maybe less) from D-day. dear time, please slow down, cause Mama has too much shit left to do.

I feel like we (meaning the boy and myself) went through a growth spurt in the last week. I was trying on dresses over the weekend for my baby shower and I just could not believe how big my belly was. I felt like it had doubled in size in just a matter of days.

how far along? 
30 weeks.

how big is the baby? 
according to Baby Center, Ronin weighs almost 3lbs, measures about 15.7 inches long, and is the size of a head of cabbage (or a cucumber... thanks to The Bump). he is surrounded by a pint and a half of amniotic fluid, but that amount will decrease as he continues to grow. he's now strong enough to grasp a finger! 

total weight gain: 
I'd say I probably gained another pound, which would put me up at 13lbs total.

SUCKS. if I'm not waking up to pee 9823 times, I'm just plain old uncomfortable. when I do finally get to sleep, I have some whack ass dreams and am woken up by Sean's snoring.

best moment of the week: 
buying a new mattress, haha. our mattress is like 15 years old, so needless to say, it was a purchase that has been way overdue. it will arrive on Saturday and I cannot wait to take that baby for a test drive. (mind out of the gutter, folks, I'm talking about sleeping. ain't none of that other business happening around here)

food cravings: 
anything sweet and fresh - melons, sweet corn, popsicles. 

food aversions: 
nothing really. 

sleeplessness? check. 
heartburn/reflux? check. 
pelvic pain? check. 
shortness of breath? check. 
leaky nips? check. 
stretch marks? sadly, check.
pregnancy brain? check. 

I'd say I've got it all.

gender sex: 
BOY! :D 

most looking forward to: 
getting his nursery together and appointments every 2 weeks (!!!). <--- yep, same. we didn't do anything in the nursery over the weekend, so it's time to get our butts in gear. and I'll also add Kullen's 3rd birthday party to this list. :)

what I miss right now: 
just being comfortable in general.

next appointment: 
June 21st (Thursday).


  1. so close!! can't wait to see what your little guy looks like!

  2. You look great!
    I remember how uncomfortable those last couple of months were [yuck!] so I have my fingers crossed that the new mattress helps with the sleeplessness!

  3. I think you look great and no bigger than last week so hush! baby is growing so any spurts or gain is good!!!! :) annnnn kullen is looking forward to seein his aunt mannneeeeee! ;)

  4. So exciting! You are such a beautiful pregnant mama! It's crazy how fast time flies when you are pregnant, then it flies even faster after you have the kiddo. It seems just like yesterday when I had my little man, now he's 3 months. Oh and don't get me started on my little terror. She's 4 already!! ahh.

  5. You look soooo adorable in this picture :)
