Only 10 Weeks to Go!

I feel like I say this every week, but I can’t believe how far along I am!  I’m entering my 30th week of pregnancy, and I am getting to the point of being more and more excited about meeting Charlotte and holding her in my arms.  I’m just thankful that for the most part I’ve had a very easy pregnancy and that so far everything looks great with our little one.  Here’s hoping that will continue all the way up to and through labor and delivery!

Baby’s size?  Charlotte is almost 3 pounds now and between 15-17 inches long. 

Weight Gain?  Ummm…

Stretch marks? Still no new ones.

Belly button in or out?  Still in.  I’m thinking it may stay that way, although things could certainly change in the next few weeks.

Sleep?  It’s getting harder and harder to get a good night’s sleep.  I’ve ended up on the couch or in the recliner some nights.

Foods I am loving?  I am all about the clementines and of course anything sweet.

Foods I am hating?  Shrimp has lost any and all appeal to me for some reason.  I used to really like it.   

Best moment this week?  Having a Christmas date with Stephen.  We saw White Christmas performed by the local theater guild, and then we had a yummy dinner at Outback (I’m blaming my recent weight gain all on that dinner). 

Movement? She is moving and squirming and who knows what else in there!

Symptoms?  Lots of visits to the bathroom, lots of nasal congestion, sleepless nights.   

What I miss? Sleeping through the night and not needing a bathroom break.

What I will miss? Her little movements.

What I’m looking forward to?  Christmas!  I’m hoping for a white Christmas, too!

Weekly Wisdom: Fiber is your friend.  Anyone who is pregnant will probably know what I am talking about. 🙂

Milestone: 10 weeks to go!

Emotions:  I have cried more in the last few weeks than I have in a LONG time.  My poor husband is putting up with a LOT.  I love him more every day for it.

  1. Excited for you! Before I had Doobie, I was way freaked out about breastfeeding… and for me that was the weirdest, hardest part of having a new baby. I found a little (short) pamphlet on the subject and read it before I had him. Beyond that, the book BabyWise is informative. I didn't read it till the baby was a week old–big mistake! by then I was way way sleep deprived and couldn't stand to read for more than 5 minutes at a time! Anyway, Babywise, summed up, says to try and get baby to eat on a 2-3 hour schedule, keeping baby awake after feeding for at least 30 minutes before you let her sleep again. Then at night you feed on demand and put her right back to bed after she eats.
    Such a common-sense piece of advice, but soooo true! THere's lots of other things they talk about in Babywise, but these two tips above are the ones worth remembering.
    Merry Christmas! Try to relax and get some sleep these next few weeks!


Tell me your thoughts! I'd love to read them.
