{week 30} Happy 7 months! Pregnancy months are really strange though and calculated differently than normal months. Via a pregnancy calendar, I am technically in the last week of month seven – eep!

Things are going well and I am feeling pretty good, I just tire more easily. I am also fighting a little bit of a cold that Eloise brought home, so I think that is contributing. My energy levels are much lower than even a few weeks ago, but that is just the third trimester catching up with me! I am still regularly doing at least one barre class per week which is so good for me physically and mentally. There are a lot of modifications I have to make at this point, but I always feel really great after a workout. If I can, I am going to schedule classes right up to my due date which is what I did with Eloise!

My appetite is still low. Food generally doesn’t sound very good and I could probably just eat cereal until the end of February. Eating anything in a large quantity is getting to be challenging since I feel like I fill up so quickly, so lots of smaller portions and meals thru-out the day. I am also trying to stay as hydrated as I can since I know it helps with swelling, etc., and am working on finding a balance between drinking lots of water and not having to use the bathroom every 15 minutes!

Sleep was a bit illusive a few weeks ago and I was waking up a lot during the night, but the past week has been awesome. I feel like I am actually getting a full night’s sleep which is much-needed since Eloise is as busy as ever during the day.

My heartburn and indigestion are still holding strong every time I eat or drink something, but not horrible. I just have to be careful when it comes to late-night snacking since eating or drinking right before I lie down really exacerbates it!

Also, I just heard that an old friend had her baby this weekend at just 32 weeks (she was one week further along than me) and while the baby is healthy, it makes me so thankful for every extra day I get to be pregnant. As most of you know, I love LOVE being pregnant and am trying to enjoy every minute of this one!

And, finally, I feel like I am starting to nest a bit. We have almost everything for the new nursery, but the space isn’t ready yet. We are waiting on one small project to be completed in Eloise’s new room before we can really start moving things around, and need to figure out when it makes sense to move Eloise into her big kid room. I am thinking mid to late January? Any other mamas out there have to move a toddler from one room to another to make room for a new baby? I would love any tips!

And see my week 30 update with Eloise here!

Happy 30 weeks!

  1. I tend to think that your baby bump looks a little different this time. Maybe be a little more spread out btw your hips and a wee bit lower. But I’m not sure what that means b/c I think it looks more like a girl bump this time than last! So I’m guessing another girl. But I could be totally wrong! Just my guess. What are others guessing?
