It’s been about 8 weeks since my last pregnancy update, so I figured it’s about time for another one. It’s funny, but looking back at my previous update, my 30 week pregnancy update isn’t all too different. Needless to say, I’m thankful for this because it means I’ve had a very smooth, uneventful pregnancy.
How Far Along: 30 weeks
Due Date: Early December
How I’m Feeling: Overall I’m feeling pretty good, though I definitely have days were I just feel uncomfortable. My energy is up and I’m sleeping well (knock on wood). I feel bad saying this because I’ve been lucky to have such an easy pregnancy, but I’m getting to that point where I’m over it. Oh, and I really want a glass of wine!
What I’m Craving: After craving all the fruit my first two trimesters, I know longer crave it, but I still have been eating a lot of fruit. I haven’t noticed any crazy cravings (other then really wanting ice cream the other night) and I’ve just been maintaining my normal diet.
Symptoms: Still no major symptoms. Every once and a while I’ll have some heartburn, which is something I’ve never experienced before. It actually took a few times for me to even realize what it was. It never lasts long though and isn’t every day, so it hasn’t become a big issue. After a lifetime of weak, brittle nails, my nails have finally gotten stronger. This is a pregnancy “sympton” I hope is here for good.
Exercise: I’m still taking Bar Method 3 times a week and running twice a week. My runs are getting slower, but it still feels good to just be able to get out and break a sweat a couple times a week. The other day my Bar Method instructor told me I was “killing it” in my plank and that gave me an extra confident boost! It also motivated me to continue to work hard each class.
What I’m Wearing: My mother-in-law bought me this dress in early June when they came to visit, but I just started wearing it recently. It’s no longer available, but I’ve linked a few similar dresses below. The dress is one of the few maternity items I own, along with this shirt and a couple pairs of jeans. Knowing that I have less than 3 months to go, I’m trying to get by with buying too many maternity clothes that I may never wear again. Because the weather has been so nice, I’ve been wearing a lot of my summer dresses, but I’m looking forward to switching it up with loose tunics, leggings and scarves.
Looking Forward Too: Our baby shower next month, starting (and finishing) the nursery and just getting closer to meeting our little girl!
