It’s been awhile since I’ve updated everyone on my pregnancy! Err…um…I guess this is actually the first pregnancy update I’ve done. Oops.
Ok, well, here’s what I’ve posted so far about this pregnancy (in case you missed it):
And now, FINALLY, a pregnancy update! At 30 weeks!
Wait, let’s talk about that for a sec. 30 weeks!! How are we already here? Seriously, I thought this day would never come. Our first pregnancy ended in miscarriage last year, so every single day of pregnancy since we found out about this one has been such a blessing. I remember thinking “it will be such a miracle to get to the third trimester!”. And now here we are!
So here’s the latest update:
1. Baby Showers
We’ve had such a fun time celebrating our little guy at our baby showers! One of them was here in Oklahoma, the other one was in Texas. Our baby is so loved by his friends and family!
Current state of the nursery? Well, I can’t quite show you that. Let’s just say izzz a mess. But my hope is to get it done in the next couple of weeks (before I get too tired)! In the meantime, I’ll just show you some of my favorite nursery finds that are in our nursery and most likely still in boxes:
- Crib: My mom found a crib at a garage sale similar to this one from Target. We love it so far!
- Dresser: We LOVED the simplicity of this dresser from Target! So this one is already set up in his little room 😉
- Rug: Loving this rug from Rugs USA. It just brings everything together!
- Glider: Our glider is from Buy Buy Baby and is a light grey color. I wasn’t sure if I would like that with the cream rug, but I’m actually loving it!
Ohhhhhkkkk. Let’s talk pregnancy symptoms. For starters, I’m nauseas again, which was unexpected. Remember that first trimester nausea? That was no joke! Thankfully, this situation is very minor compared to that.
Third trimester exhaustion has hit me full force (and I hear there’s a lot more to come??) and Braxton Hicks contractions are becoming more intense and more frequent. Most of my friend’s didn’t have Braxton Hicks this early on, but I’ve read it’s quite common. Did any of you have them frequently at 30 weeks?
OH, and poor Cody. At least twice a week I wake us both up with the worst cramps (Charley Horses, anyone?) in my legs! Those are definitely painful haha. I mean, if one 10-30 second cramp in my calf is enough to make me deeply sore for several days? That’s just crazy.
Ok, now on to the fun symptoms 😉 Our little guy is moving SO much every day! Especially at night when I’m laying down to go to bed. If I’m sitting still and you look at my belly for about 5 minutes, there’s a good chance you’ll see what looks like our baby literally drumming on my stomach. What is he even doing in there?!
We just can’t wait to meet our little one! For more updates, be sure to follow along on Instagram 😉 And if you’re a momma, I’d love to hear about what your third trimester symptoms were like in the comments below!
And hopefully I’ll get around to posting at least one more update before he comes. Hopefully. Stay tuned, friends!
