Weight gain/loss: 13 lbs gained. Now at 143 lbs.
Maternity clothes: Definitely.
Stretch Marks: Nope :)
Sleep: Awesome, despite regular bathroom trips.
Best moment this week: Reaching 30 weeks. Somehow it feels way further along than 29 weeks. 30 weeks is three quarters of the way there!
Food Cravings: Hard ice cream. Not likely pregnancy related but more seasonally related. The weather has been beautiful! Since I haven't really had any real cravings this pregnancy to date, I am proposing a theory (for which I may be completely wrong). I am hypothesizing that those that have the strongest or weirdest pregnancy cravings are likely those that are poorly nourished going into pregnancy. Given that I ate well prior to pregnancy, I am guessing that perhaps I have not experienced any cravings because my body hasn't needed anything extra nutritionally.
Gender: I envision a boy in the hospital, but everything thereafter is girl to me. It will be one or the other I am convinced.
Belly button in or out: Half and half I would say. See the picture below. I truly think it is the grossest looking belly button ever, not to mention the lush hair that has developed on my belly during pregnancy. I think that I am more worried that my belly button won't go back to "normal" than I am of stretch marks.
Movement: Can now feel exactly where Perogy is resting. I have experienced much higher kicks, this week being the first time that I have ever been kicked in the ribs.
What I miss: Being able to bend over; being able to see the underside of my belly (amongst other things that need not be mentioned here).
What I'm looking forward to: Cloth diapering (honestly, I can't believe that I am looking forward to changing diapers, but I am! I'm sure it will pass!); summer play dates; baby wearing.
Fears: Inevitably having to get this baby out of me sooner than later; not feeling as content or satisfied with life once Perogy arrives.
