Weekly Update- 30 weeks

6/27/16 - 7/3/16

Size of baby: A cabbage- His eyesight continues to develop, though it's not very keen; even after he's born, he'll keep his eyes closed for a good part of the day. When he does open them, he'll respond to changes in light but will have 20/400 vision – which means he can only make out objects a few inches from his face

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 22 pounds as of my doctors appointment. I have about 10 more pounds until I hit where I was with Hunter when I delivered

Maternity Clothes: all maternity and stretchy dresses

Sex: Boy #2

Movement: still very active especially at night when I'm laying on the couch. We've gotten better at determining the various body parts as they move.

What I miss: being able to turn over easily in bed and sleeping on my stomach and back

Sleep: actually better except for getting up to pee a lot but I fall asleep again pretty quickly. 

Symptoms: I still have a lot of braxton hicks contractions throughout the day though drinking more water helps. Belly feels very heavy

Cravings: still craving sweet stuff like fruit and desserts

Best Moment this week: a good doctors appointment where he calmed my fears about delivering early, apparently the baby isn't quite as low as I thought/he feels. Had a great 4th of July weekend at the beach house and the crib arrived!

What I am looking forward to: Kristian putting together the furniture for the nursery so I can start putting stuff away. I've washed a ton of Hunters baby clothes but now need a place to put them all!
