30 Weeks Pregnant

How far along:  30 weeks!
Total weight: 94.4 Kilos *pats myself on my back* I actually remembered to weigh myself! I'm still under my pre-pregnancy weight, but the dietitian said it's a positive step that I actually have gained something, and she isn't too worried.
Stretch marks: I have a few, but they actually don't bother me at all if I'm honest, I'm just grateful that Baby E is ok.
Best moments this week: Definitely has to be our 4D scan, I'm currently writing up a blog post about it, it will be full of pictures I promise. All I am saying is it was definitely worth the money, and am so happy that we actually went ahead and had the 4D scan. 
Miss anything:  strawberry and lime Kopparberg, Because we were on holiday last week, It made it harder, I think it is always harder when you know you're not allowed something. It automatically makes you want it more I think. What I would have done for a cider on the beach. There is always next year. 

Movement: I did read somewhere that when you are in your third trimester the baby stops kicking as much, and sleeps more. However, this isn't the case with Baby E. She kicks non stop, Her daddy always says 'she is going to be a little footballer'.
Gender: Girl
Labour signs: Too early
Symptoms: Tired, and it's making me really grumpy. I have to admit I am pretty hormonal, I cry at everything, and then my other half will burst into fits of laughter. Which then makes me cry more, or get frustrated! It is hard work being pregnant.
How do I feel: I fell ok in myself. At the beginning of the week, I was really worried, because I had various appointments to keep up with. It was all a bit stressful, but I've come out the other side feeling relieved and a lot happier if I'm honest.
Cravings: (This is a new one for me) While in Hemsby, I had constant cravings for doughnuts and ice lollies. It didn't matter what I ate, it didn't satisfy me at all.
Belly button in or out: in
Wedding ring on or off: on

How your baby grows
Week 30: The lanugo, which has been protecting your baby's skin, is starting to wear off and most of it will have disappeared by the time she is born.

    1. I've never tried them if i am honest :) x

  2. Is it bad that reading this post makes me feel better?! I too am massively hormonal (28 weeks today!) and have turned into a big cryer. Also missing the booze - I blame the sunshine. We went to a festival this weekend and it was lovely being outside in the sunshine with all the other families but I was very envious of everyone else who was drinking cold lagers or Pimms in the sun. My husband decided to drink my portion instead and enjoy me being designated driver! Lovely to see you again on #BlogBumpClub. xx

    1. I'm glad it makes you feel better, it's not nice when your really hormonal and you sit there and think, am I the only one feeling this way, that's how I feel most of the time! The sunshine always makes you want a ice cold alcoholic beverage! Bet you resented you husband for the rest of the evening! I did my other half! I love #blogbabyclub helps me find new bloggers! xx

  3. Ah you're looking fab and only 10 weeks or so to go! All of mine kept kicking til the end, although the movements did change to squirms as room runs out! x x x

    1. Thank you! I can't believe how fast my pregnancy is going! It'll soon be time for her to be born! I'm finding that her kicks are getting into more of a pattern, for instance she will kick while I'm having breakfast, then go quiet until I'm in bed at night. x
