30 Week Bumpdate

How far along are you? 30 weeks (7½ months). 6 more weeks, 6 more weeks, 6 more weeks.

How big is the baby? About the size of a head of cabbage. 3+ lbs.

Weight Gain? Still 15 lbs. Don’t be jealous, I don’t eat…well, maybe 1 meal/day. Not ideal for baby.

Maternity clothes? Yessss.

Stretch marks? Nothing new.

Sleep: I have insomnia, as I mentioned in my last “Bumpdate.” I called the after-hours line bawling last night because I slept 2 hours & I was scratching my legs bloody with a chewed-up plastic dog frisbee. I might be getting prescribed Ambien today. I’ve heard it works wonders.

Best moment this week? Hands down, seeing Jon. And he’s so excited to meet Baby Boy, it makes me melt. =)

Movement? I think he’s lazy, but he always lets me know that he’s fine. And after I eat, he goes crazy.

Food cravings? I want amazing Italian food, specifically from the Pasta Tree.

Food aversions? Nothing lately, just no appetite.

Labor signs? Not this week.

Gender? BOY! And at the 28 week ultrasound, they said his testicles were descended. Awww.

Symptoms? Cholestasis of Pregnancy, Carpal Tunnel of Pregnancy, insomnia, swelling. All that fun stuff.

Belly button in or out? In, but it’s getting more shallow!

Wedding rings on or off? Off now. I wear them as a necklace.

Happy or moody? I’m straight-up fucking miserable. Yeah, I said it. The itching is worse, I don’t know if it’s because delivery is closer? Believe me, I want him to be healthy first & foremost, but if I could take Baby Boy out today and not be afraid of him suffering from life-long preemie issues, I would. See? I itch/scratch so much that I have bloody scratches and bruises all over my legs (see below)…no sundresses for me. =/

What I miss: Same as always: sleep, not itching, and my husband. *sigh*

What I am looking forward to: My “Mustache Bash” Baby Shower this weekend! Woo! And I ordered new black canvas tailored fabric for my Bugaboo stroller. =)

I’m so glad you got to spend some quality time with the hubs. That’s so awesome! And yes, your legs look just awful… thank goodness you only have 6 weeks to go. Hang in there, girl! Before you know it, you’ll be itch-free and snuggling with that precious little boy.
