30 weeks pregnant update

Published June 21, 2014 by ivfdream

This is a big one!

How far along? Week 30

Total weight gain: 24 pounds or 1 stone, 10lbs . Put on about 1.5 lbs this week.

Started at 143 lbs. Am now 167 lbs and am 1 lb over recommended weight.

Maternity clothes? All the time but still wearing my tube skirts. They are the best. We have a min heat wave in Ireland so wearing any clothes feel uncomfortable.

The best moment though has to be finishing my clexane injections yesterday at week 30! The one I had on Wednesday night was so painful. I was crying for ages! They never usually hurt this much.

Stretch marks?

Loads. It a few days ago, the manic movement, where I thought baby would burst through my belly button, slowed down. It still moves but more chilled out and rehearsed type movement. It enjoys moving at night!

Best moment this week:
Getting to the thirty week mark. Which means I’m in single digit count down! Went out with DH last night to special restaurant. It was a pre Daddy’s day present for him. Nice to sit, chat and hold hands and eat fine food with no noise. Good to have these memories.

Miss anything? Wearing my skinny jeans. Wearing anything I want to in my wardrobe. Now I have a limited wardrobe.

Belly button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off: On. No bloating of feet or swollen ankles.

Happy or moody most of the time: Feeling tired and emotional this week.

Looking forward: Got my cuidiu breastfeeding classes coming up and weekend after my antenatal ones. Going away with my family next week for night or two. Going out tomorrow night to our favourite tapas bar. Waiting for the contract and house to be signed over and then the packing.

Food cravings: No.

Anything making you queasy or sick? Actually, felt a bit of mild nausea this week. Probably the heat.

Gender: not finding out.

Symptoms: Tiredness started a few days again. Another nine week at least of this! 😦 feeling hot and bothered. Waking more at night.
Older and frequent symptoms include movements, tightening of vagina, heartburn and mild sickness. White discharge is every day now thickening.

Labour signs: no! Far too soon.
