Pregnancy survey

Now that I have my first post out of the way I am free to blog my little heart out right?! I have so many ideas and post I want to do. I think I will write them on my to-do list so I have some material for awhile.

A special thank you to A. Liz Adventures for the shout out today, she has reached 500 followers and I was her 500th. What a milestone. I think it'll take me awhile to get there, but a girl can dream!

First things first. I only have 10 (give or take) weeks of pregnancy left so here is my pregnancy survey that I have seen around Blogger.

How far along are you? 30.3 weeks

How big is the baby?: 15.7 inches long, she weighs almost 3lbs and if she were a vegetable she'd be the size of a cucumber. Maybe this is why she is creeping up in my ribs.

Maternity cloths: Usually always. If not I am in the Mr.'s tee shirts. Sometimes I will find cute stuff at non maternity stores like one of my favorites Anthropology. BTW stores LOVE to dress pregnant women with things they have that will work. Its like having a personal shopper. Also, saves a little in the money department because you can wear it post pregnancy such as a wrap dress.

Stretch marks?: No not yet and I'd like to keep it that way thank you. Although, my puberty marks on my hips came out from hiding.

Sleep: Depends on the day. Much better now that I am on Prilosec for the heartburn. I do have to visit the bathroom at least 4 times before I can fall asleep and the leg cramping/pinched nerve doesn't help.

Best moment this week: Hitting 30 weeks, there is a light forming at the end of the tunnel! Becoming a "2 week-er" at the OB, even though I usually wait 30-45 then seen for 5min. The Mr. being a good sport and going to a prenatal  partners yoga workshop with me (I go to prenatal yoga 1-2 times a week. I HIGHLY recommend it). 

Movement: I am noticing actually limb movements instead of the little jabs. I am carrying very high, her feet are almost in my ribs at this point. My good friend told me it only gets wild from here on out!

Food cravings: Peanut butter anything. Breakfast food always.

Food aversions: Still cannot stand steak! Used to be my favorite. Hope we do not have a little vegan on our hands as we are a meat loving family. Mama will love her anyway :) 

Labor signs: No. Develop those lungs little diva!!

What I miss: Back porch wine drinking with the Mr. and cute normal cloths, I suppose, but would not trade this for anything. 

What I am looking forward to: Getting her nursery done. Will post a before/after and our inspiration. Maternity photo shoot August 29th (need to buy those props and love Pinterest inspirations of course) and my baby shower September 9th!


  1. Can't wait to see pics from your maternity shoot! You are so gorgeous, girl! You are all belly! I only hope to be that way someday. I have a feeling I'll just be pregnant EVERYWHERE...haha... :)

  2. How fun! I'm 5-6 weeks behind you! 25-weeks tomorrow for us! We're having a girl too! I started taking Prilosec last week and I've noticed it's helped with my 'mystery pain' that may or may not be reflux.
    You look GREAT!!! Do you have a name yet? Where do you live?

  3. Found you from A. Liz Adventures - I am also 30 weeks with a girl! and I just about cried when I read what your friend said that it only gets wild from here on out. My little cupcake is constantly beating on my ribs too! Here's to hoping the next 10 weeks go by quickly!

  4. pre-natal yoga is something i will definitely have to try for sure whenever i get pregnant which could be soon, last night my husband wanted to have "the when are we having children talk"
