I swear I have been pregnant for about 72 years! Maybe it’s just because it is so hot outside but I swear this pregnancy is dragging on so much more slowly than my first pregnancy. The last couple of weeks have been a bit crazy. We had a bit of a scare and ended up having to go to the hospital and get checked out. Luckily everything turned out fine but we are still quite worried about preterm labor. Fortunately, we have now made it to our 30 weeks pregnant mark. I just keep reminding myself that I’m 3/4 of the way there now.

30 Weeks Pregnant
According to my app baby is the size of a motor cycle helmet this week. Honestly this feels like about the best description I’ve ever heard. I’m fairly certain I would feel about as awkward if someone strapped a motor cycle helmet to my abdomen as I do right now.
I CAN’T BREATH! I swear I sound like an English Bulldog whenever I try to turn over in bed. It’s a bit comical at this point.
Working out, like always. I seriously day dream about spending quality time with my treadmill. Feel free to share in a comment any awesome workouts you have had lately so I can live vicariously through you!
I’m also missing just being comfortable in general. I swear I’m only comfy if I’m completely laid out in the floor and even then it’s questionable. I love that I’m pregnant and I wouldn’t give it up for anything but my lord I am DONE!
Sleep/Crazy Dream Update
Sleep has been hit or miss lately. James is starting to realize that something is going on and is becoming a lot more clingy. Because of this he is regressing to where he is waking up about every two hours all night long again so sleep has been a bit rocky the last couple weeks.
My crazy dreams continue however. Last night I had a dream where my husband, aunt, and I decided we wanted to see what the inside of some really fancy houses looked like. Instead of looking for open houses we decided to start breaking into houses in the middle of the night just to look around. Finally the dream ended when we got caught and a man chased us out to our car. (Guys I swear I can’t make this stuff up. The dreams this pregnancy have been a bit hysterical at times.)
Honestly I haven’t really been having too many food cravings lately. I have however been insanely hungry all the time. I feel like a bottomless pit some days!
This one is the same as always. Meat is not really my friend but beyond that I’ve been pretty ok with most things.
I have been able to walk a little bit with James. Other than that the doctor has told me that exercise is just going to have to be a no go until baby gets here. As much as this bothers me I keep reminding myself that it’s only for a short time (because I’m FINALLY 30 weeks pregnant) and I’ll eventually get back to my “normal” routine.
