and a comparison shot:
How far along: 30 Weeks!
How big is baby: According to The Bump - The size of a cucumber. Measuring in at 15.2 to 16.7 inches long and 2.5 to 3.8 pounds. His skin is getting smoother, but his brain is getting wrinklier -- to make way for all that essential brain tissue. He's now strong enough to grasp a finger!
Weight gain/loss: I'm down .6 pounds from last week for a total gain of 16.8 pounds.
Stretch marks: Yes.
Sleep: 6 am wake up calls SUCK.
Movement: He has been going nuts in there since the weekend. It almost feels like he's thrashing around.
Symptoms: I had my appointment this morning. Everything is completely normal, but I feel like I've been punched in the stomach and have the biggest cankles I've ever had. Plus my feet are swelling on top of it. Blah.
What I'm looking forward to:
Best moment of the week: My shower was over the weekend and was beautiful (post to come). I also got to spend time with my mom and do a TON of sewing for the nursery (posts to come).
How I'm feeling: Like crud. My stomach is really sore, but the midwife thinks it's just muscular and should go away. In the meantime even sitting, let alone moving hurts like hell. Forget about trying to roll over! I've also done something to my foot so I'm hobbling around because of that too. That appointment is on Thursday and I'm hoping it's better by then.
