How far along: I'm 30 weeks -- about halfway through 7 months of pregnancy. (H took this photo at 29 weeks-- hooray for winter beach days).
Size of the baby: According to the My Pregnancy app our baby is the size of large cabbage. She is 15.7 inches long and weighs around 3 pounds.
Gender: A GIRL and we're naming her Violet Mae :) -- she shares her great-grandma's middle name.
How do you feel? I'm pretty tired by 8:30 or 9:00 PM... other than that I feel great! My wedding ring fits but the top part of my belly button is officially an outie (yikes!).
Eating/Cravings: Eating: Oatmeal with blueberries, popcorn (I addicted to this stuff), avocados, scrambled eggs, honeycrisp apples, hummus and veggies (still), and I just finished off the last of the Christmas sugar cookies (whompwhomp). Craving: Portillo's italian roast beef sandwich + cheesy fries, cheesecake (which is a weird one since I haven't had it in years), Chili's salsa + chips.
Miss anything? I really miss riding my bike... it's my first winter in the South and I would LOVE to take advantage of the warm weather and ride around our neighborhood.
General mood: EXCITED! and a little anxious... I just want our baby to be safe, healthy, and happy.
Sleep: Still sleeping okay, but I'm sick of sleeping on my side.
Workouts: I'm staying active as possible and working out 4-5 times a week, although most days my workouts now last around 30 mins instead of 45 mins.
Things I am looking forward to: We're taking some baby classes (childbirth, basic newborn care, and infant CPR) next month, so that should be interesting.
Best moment this month: Spending the holidays with my parents, feeling Vi move and kick especially after I eat, going to the beach and talking about all the things we want to do with our baby as she grows into a little lady.
Shout out to my baby daddy: H has been incredibly supportive throughout this pregnancy. He has gone to all of my doctor's appointments and calmed me down during my freak out moments.
Maternity clothes: I'm sticking to the tank/cardigan combo for most days. I'm thankful I work from home so I can live in maternity jeans and leggings.
Purchased/ Currently in my shopping cart: I stopped buying baby clothes after my brother told me his newborn daughter is usually swaddled or in diapers for most of the day. Violet already has a solid wardrobe, so I'm trying not to over do it. Lately I've been buying accessories (bows, headbands, pacifier clips) and odds and ends for her nursery (baskets and frames).
