Pregnancy Update: 30 Weeks

How many weeks are you now?
30 weeks, 6 days

Baby's size? 

Butternut Squash per the What to Expect app. He's also somewhere in the 3 pound range. I took a picture with my Yorkie this morning...she's 5 1/2 pounds and it's funny to think that Brayden is fully formed yet he's smaller than her (for now)!

Oh my goodness the HEARTBURN hit me on Tuesday of this week. I've never experienced heart burn before...ever...and it was crazy! My esophagus felt like it was on fire!! Thankfully I had a Pepcid AC and it definitely came to the rescue but I waited a while to take it because I wanted to see if the heartburn would go away on its own.

Cheetos and Hershey's chocolate (again)

Nothing new...still fish!

All is well here, still sleeping through the night for the most part! I occasionally wake up before my alarm but that doesn't happen often. I will admit, I enjoy sleeping in on Saturday mornings although I do feel a little guilty because for many years, my Saturday mornings were consumed with long runs! It was always a bad thing to sleep on Saturdays, so this is a huge change. I'm soaking up the "sleeping in" while I can!! :)

Nothing new this week although I've been shopping around for gliders.
What I miss: 
Running. Especially in the cold. I cannot wait to get back out there and enjoy it once again. 

What I’m looking forward to:
Continuing the progress on getting our house ready. Last weekend, Jason moved stuff around, donated items to a local thrift store, and ordered our new desk. Once the desk arrives, it won't be long before we will be able to set up the baby room furniture!

Worst Moment of the Week:
The heartburn!!

Best Moment of the Week: 
Baby registry shopping with my friend Kim - she really helped me when it came to necessary items for the baby! Jason and I did half of the registry, then I took my friend Kim back with me and we completed it (because neither Jason nor I knew what in the world we were doing)!

Another good moment this week was my final monthly Doctor's appointment. I happened to be placed in the Ultrasound room (for no reason), so she checked his heart rate and looked at his positioning. He's head down, the fluid levels look good, and his HR is still right at 149/150! Oh yes, and he's still a boy and I'm still measuring right on track, just a few days ahead! :)

Have a wonderful day! :)


  1. So exciting!!! You are just so cute! And you are GLOWING!!!!

  2. You are looking good!!! Sleep as much as possible until your little bundle of joy arrives!! It's getting close!! :)

    1. Thank you! I'm definitely soaking up the sleep while I can!! :)

  3. You look amazing!! And, yeah, based on everything I've heard/read/seen about those early months as a new mom...ENJOY THAT SLEEP! :)

  4. yay! good for you for sleeping while you can!

  5. Wow, 30 weeks already?! Time is flying by! I got a Dutailier glider and I love it. Plus, if you have a Buy Buy Baby near you, you can use their 20% off coupons on them. :) And I've also been craving Cheetos this week! Mmmm!

    1. THANK YOU for this tip! I just started looking at the Dutailier brand this week and didn't even THINK of checking Bed Bath and Beyond or Buy Buy Baby! I was able to use my 20% off Bed Bath and Beyond coupon, so I ordered it! Again, thank you!!

  6. Your Cheetos craving made me laugh. I rarely eat them but every once in a while they are delicious! I have had many friends bring a mom friend to help them register which seems to be really helpful with determining what you actually need vs. what the baby industry tells you that you need. -C

    1. Same here with the cheetos! It only hits every once in a while but when it does..oooh they are so good! :) You're right about moms/friends with the registry - it's good to have an experienced eye on things!! :)

  7. You look so darn cute! The cravings are just so interesting! Enjoy all the sleep and the naps! Love your updates!

    1. Thanks Sarah! Yes, the cravings are ALL over the place!! Haha!

  8. Oh the heartburn, I definitely don't miss that. Hard to believe that you're so close! Before you know it you'll be holding that sweet baby boy in your arms.

    1. That was the worst feeling in the world...ugh. Hope it doesn't decide to return! :) You're right, it's soooo close!!
