Bumps & Braids: Weeks 30 & 31
This week one of my cute photographer friends Beka from Beka Price Photography asked me to model some maternity dresses from Sew Trendy Accessories for her! We went out to the saltair and it was a lot of fun! I love my belly bump and it’s nice to have some actual professional pictures of it! We also had another ultrasound this week! Isn’t his face SO cute? (But also kind of looks like a creepy China doll…haha sorry baby! ultrasounds are so cool but so weird sometimes!) Read on for more updates on this week!
How far along? 30 Weeks!! That means only 10 weeks left hallelujah!! 🎉🎉
How Big is baby? We had our 30 week appointment this week and the doctor said he weighs about 3 lbs 6 oz! I can’t believe he is that big already!!
Weight Gained? I lost 3 pounds this week. Having gallstones has been SO hard, but it has helped me become extremely healthy and in the process lose excess weight I had gained before getting pregnant! Like I’ve said before, it might be the only good thing about having gallstones. Haha A lot of people have wondered if baby is healthy or not because I haven’t gained much weight, but Baby is growing normal and is extremely healthy and that is all that matters!
Maternity clothes? Still fitting in my normal clothes, but living in dresses because it’s SO hot!
Stretch marks? Not yet!
Sleep? SO ROUGH! Brandon has been out of town this week and I already have a hard time sleeping when he’s not home. So that mixed with a huge belly making it hard to get comfortable has been a nightmare!
Best moment this week? Shooting with Beka and embracing the beauty of my bump! I am so grateful for this miracle inside me!
Miss Anything? SLEEP!!
Movement? He never stops moving. It worries me that he will never stop when he is born either! 😁
Anything making you queasy or sick? This week I have not felt good at all! I’ve been nauseous and just felt blah! Hoping this doesn’t last the rest of my pregnancy!!
Cravings? The chicken artichoke panini from paradise bakery cafe!! I love when I find something delicious that I can actually eat!! I think I’ve had it every single day this week! Oh well 😉
Gender? Baby boy!
Labor Signs? Nothing real just Braxton hicks!
Symptoms? Heartburn and leg aches again! It’s seriously the worst.
Belly Button in or out? Awkward middle stage still!
Wedding rings on or off? On!
Happy or Moody most of the time? So moody this week! I hate when Brandon leaves for work 🙁
Looking forward to? Having brandon home!! (Partially so he can rub my aching legs 😉 jk…kind of)
This weeks braid? I ACTUALLY HAVE A BRAID THIS WEEK! And it’s my favorite braid ever! The milkmaid braided crown! This is my go to braid because it’s SO cute and so easy! You can never go wrong with it!
How far along? 31 weeks! Only 9 weeks to go!
How Big is baby? One of my apps says he’s as big as a foam finger and then said “root root root for the womb team!” This cracked me up 😂 I couldn’t stop laughing! Oh man pregnancy makes you weird!
Weight Gained? I haven’t weighed my self this week so we will see at my doctors appointment next week!
Maternity clothes? I got the CUTEST dresses from Pink Blush Maternity (I’ve posted about Pink Blush before! They are the best) And I’m wearing one of them in this weeks bump picture! The other dress I got is exactly the same just a different pattern! It is SO comfy and stretchy (perfect for my ever growing bump) and is extremely light weight which is GREAT in this 100 degree weather we’ve been having!
Stretch marks? None yet!
Sleep? TERRIBLE. 😁 There’s no way to get comfortable anymore haha
Best moment this week? Baby started moving like crazy one night so I just sat and watched my belly and It was so AMAZING! My belly looked like waves were rippling through it! I could see his little knee or foot poking out at times. It was so sweet and wonderful!
Miss Anything? Comfort. I can’t wait to be comfortable again!
Anything making you queasy or sick? I’ve been working a ton lately and haven’t been able to rest much, so I’ve felt kind of sick this last week! Hopefully I’ll be able to get more rest this week!
Cravings? French toast crunch cereal!! Cereal is one thing I actually can eat so I eat A LOT of it!
Gender? Baby boy!
Labor Signs? None!
Symptoms? My back and hips have been KILLING me this week! I can hardly walk at times they hurt so bad!
Belly Button in or out? I think I can officially say it’s an outie! You can see it poke through my shirt now! Ah it freaked me out when I first saw it! Haha
Wedding rings on or off? On!
Happy or Moody most of the time? I’ve been in so much pain this week I’ve probably been pretty moody! I’m not great with pain 😳
Looking forward to? Holding my sweet little boy! I’ve had a few friends give birth this past week and seeing them hold their babies makes me so excited to hold mine!
This weeks braid? I actually got brand new extensions this week! (Yay for mermaid hair!) I’m going to do a post on them later this week…hopefully! And show you all this hair style that actually DOES have a braid in it! (I just didn’t get a picture of it this week!)
Thanks for reading beauties! I’m so grateful for all the love and support you all show me!
