30 Weeks

How is it possible that I'm already here? This pregnancy is truly flying by and it's actually made me a little sad this week. I just feel like it's all happening so fast and before I know it, it's going to be over. Even though pregnancy can be really hard, especially with a toddler in tow, I truly love and enjoy being pregnant. I love my big belly and I love knowing that I'm growing a baby inside of me. Even though I've done this before, it's still just as amazing and miraculous to me this time as it was the first time. If Bennett decides to be like his big brother, he could grace us with his presence in just seven short weeks which is mind blowing to even think about!!! I said that to Scott just a few nights ago and he just looked at me silently with big eyes then quietly said "I haven't even considered that. I'm scared now." Ha! Here's what's going on with me at 30 weeks of pregnancy.
Size of Baby: 15.7 inches long and almost 3 pounds, about the size of a large cabbage.

How I'm Feeling: I feel really great! I've been blessed with a good week.

Cravings/Appetite: Please don't make me eat is how I feel most of the time. I am never, ever hungry and when I do eat (since that's what you're supposed to do) I feel miserable after. It makes my indigestion worse and I feel like I've stuffed myself with all of the food in the world even if I just eat a small portion. I would rather just snack here and there all day instead of eat 3 bigger meals.

Clothes: Maxi skirts and dresses is all I've worn this week and it's been so wonderfully comfortable. I've even slipped my feet into some flip flops a few times. I'm loving it.

Movement: Bennett's movements are so much stronger now. When he kicks me it makes my stomach bulge out. I can definitely tell he's head down since those kicks come in right under my ribs these days.
Changes in Me: Shaving my legs suddenly got hard. I feel like I have to be very delicate each time I toss and turn in bed. I like to keep up with my weight on my pregnancy app but I haven't weighed myself in 5 weeks so I had no clue what to expect. I stepped on the scale this morning and my weight gain count is at 9 pounds. I gained 19 pounds with Campbell so it looks like I'm about on the same track with Bennett as I was with Campbell.

Baby Purchases: I was in Little Rock over the weekend so I popped in The Toggery and added 2 sweet little bubbles to Bennett's wardrobe. I wanted to be strong and resist but I'm weak for nice, smocked, classic, keep forever, my grandbabies will probably wear these one day, items. I just can't help myself. It's what I love and it makes me happy!

Favorite Moment This Week: Seeing our sweet boy on 3D! He seemed so peaceful and content. I can't wait to snuggle him.

Looking Forward To: My doctors appointment next week. I'm officially in the bi-monthly stage of appointments which is so crazy! When we had our last checkup and I was scheduling my next appointment and they said I needed to be back in two weeks, I said "oh my gosh is it already time for that?!?" We won't do much other than measure my belly and check the heartbeat but I still enjoy them and like to check in on the little guy!


  1. How is it even possible you've only gained NINE pounds?!?!? I just gained that in one month!!! Hating you. (But not really). You look awesome and I can't wait to see Baby Bennett!!

    1. Ha! I honestly have no idea. I thought the reason I didn't gain much with Campbell is because I threw up every day. My mom never gained much either so I guess I have her to thank for passing that gene along to me!!
