30 Weeks

Today we are 10 weeks from the due date! How exciting!

I’m beginning to “feel” pregnant! It actually started yesterday while sitting in my office chair my mid-section felt a little cramped! It wasn’t really painful just slightly uncomfortable. Then John David told me I looked bigger when he got home and I honestly think I grew yesterday, noticeably grew! That may sound silly but it certainly looks (and feels) that way!

Last night I woke up twice to go to the bathroom (for the past 6 1/2 months I’ve been getting up just once!) Then I woke up around 6:00 craving a glass of orange juice so I stumbled into the kitchen without my glasses on and poured me a glass (thankfully not spilling it since I couldn’t see!) So last night was a little strange…hopefully it’s not a trend but we shall see!

Paxton is moving around quite a bit but his movements are changing, I suppose as he is getting bigger and more cramped his motions are different! He still hasn’t caused me any pain thankfully and hopefully he’ll be a good baby and be nice to his mama’s ribs!

At our doctor appointment last Thursday everything was good, I actually had lost one pound from the appointment 2 weeks before! Yay! (I was told to stop gaining!) As of last Thursday I had gained 18 pounds from my initial visit (but due to being so sick and losing in the beginning, I have only gained 10 over my pre-pregnancy weight!) Hopefully I can manage to keep the weight gain under control these last 10 weeks!

We are planning on moving our nursery furniture into the nursery on the 21…exactly 2 months from the due date! This is a day after my shower from my family so I’ll be able to really organize those gifts and begin getting the nursery put together and organized while I still (hopefully) have quite a bit of energy!

And I think we’re getting closer to deciding on Paxton’s middle name! We have one name that keeps coming up, maybe very soon I’ll be making an official name announcement!!

It looks like I am hiding a basketball under my shirt!! I can’t believe I’m just going to get bigger!!

  1. You look fabulous! I can’t believe you only have 10 weeks left! The time is flying by. There were days where I think I grew during the day too. Jacob would come home and say “wow, you look bigger than this morning!” 🙂

  2. You look wonderful!
    Thanks for posting your pregnancy progress and keeping us up-to-date.
    I can’t wait to see Paxton’s room when you get it done. Very exciting!

  3. I miss feeling Michael (my son) moving around inside!!! This is a precious time. 🙂 I will be praying for you, baby and your hubby. You should post pictures of Paxton’s room when your done!

    1. No, we won’t be going this year. My dad is turning 50 on the 18th and I have a baby shower with my family on the 20th! I hate that we’re going to miss it though!
