Weeks 29-30

Its been a good couple of weeks around here.  Mark and I took a childbirth class (we found a FREE one, yay!) and we both feel more prepared as we get closer to the big day.  The nursery is basically done, just needs some decorative touches.  We'll tour the hospital next week, so surreal!

Fatigue and lower back pain are my main symptoms. Plus the growing belly continues to put more and more pressure on the ligaments in the pelvic area, so things fill very tight all the time.  More Braxton Hicks too. 

Stretch marks?
Still none!

Food cravings?
Fruit, chocolate milk, animal crackers!

Yes!  I am supposed to start coating kicks this week, but I started a few days ago.  My doctor said I should feel 10 movements in 2 hours, but I think the longest it has taken is 16 minutes.  

More barre and walking, although I am giving myself permission for more rest days now.  

Just within the last few days I have noticed that I am now getting up 2-3 times per night instead of just once.  I also have fallen into a bad pattern of not being able to fall asleep on Fridays…I think I am overly tired at the end of the week which sometimes causes me to not sleep. Sadly, Mark has had to sleep in the guest room a few times to give me more room in the bed.


Maternity Clothes?
Getting tired of them, but so thankful that I can wear dresses!

What I Miss?
Definitely miss running, I am enjoying walking, but I really miss being able to get out and run a few miles in a fraction of the time it takes me to walk as far. 


  1. Your pregnancy is flying by! You look great though!

  2. You look fantastic, Katie! That dress is so cute. You're in the home stretch!

  3. Just popping in to catch up since running into you! :) I looooove that dress you have on in the first picture. Is it maternity? Hope you are feeling okay these last few weeks!

  4. You look really pretty...Feeling so happy for you.Pregnancy period is definitely the period of struggles and pain and mood swings.Free parenting class definitely comes to rescue.
