Week 30... and Christmas Eve :)

Pregnancy Highlights

How Far along? 30 weeks 4 days

Size of the Baby? head of cabbage

Maternity Clothes? yes

Gender? girl!

Movement? she moves a lot, but still a shy girl!!! a few more people have gotten to feel her kick and move this week but she still pretty consistent in being still as soon as hands touch my belly! tricky girl :)

Sleep? not good this week, as i have been SICK with a terrible cold.

Cravings? nothing this week bc i cant taste anything, haha

Symptoms? couldn't even notice any pregnancy symptoms this week because i have been so sick, but the past 7 months of pregnancy have been the healthiest I've been in a while (i get sick a lot). so i cant complain. my hips hurt in the morning.

What I miss? being able to take in a full deep breath!

Milestones? 30 weeks?! We're in the 30's now!!

Weight Gain? 18 lbs... omg i hate the scale. I'm hoping not to pass 25 lbs, total!

What I’m nervous about? nothing this week

What I’m excited about? meeting her!! Today is Christmas Eve and we've had two Christmases so far (with Matt's Dad's family and with my dad's parents) and Mary Tyler has gotten some of THE CUTEST things... plus her monitor, car seat, etc. I teared up when we brought it all in the nursery last night, thinking how she's almost here and she'll be in that little car seat before we know it!

Baby Center Update for Week 30: Your baby's about 15.7 inches long now, and she weighs almost 3 pounds (like a head of cabbage). A pint and a half of amniotic fluid surrounds her, but that volume will decrease as she gets bigger and takes up more room in your uterus. Her eyesight continues to develop, though it's not very keen; even after she's born, she'll keep her eyes closed for a good part of the day. When she does open them, she'll respond to changes in light but will have 20/400 vision – which means she can only make out objects a few inches from her
face. (Normal adult vision is 20/20.)

Some Christmas Photos:

Mary Tyler's first bookbag.. filled with all kinds of good books to read to her:

Baby Girl and Me last night in front of Mimi and Grandy's Christmas Tree.. tons of presents!!

Tonight we are going to Christmas Eve Church with Dad and Susie... then headed to Mom's to spend Christmas Eve over there, playing games and maybe going to the movies. Tomorrow we'll wake up and have a tiny celebration (our last one with just the four of us) with Cooper and Annie then head over to Dad's in Easley to eat breakfast and open presents with them. Then we will go to Cindy's and open a few presents with her and Kelleigh before driving to Bishopville, SC to spend the day with Matt's family down there! It's a busy weekend, but we are so blessed to have so many wonderful family members to celebrate with!! :)

Merry Christmas to you and yours!!
