THIRTY weeks!!!!


30 weeks :)
"Your baby's about 15.7 inches long now, and she weighs almost 3 pounds (like a head of cabbage). A pint and a half of amniotic fluid surrounds her, but that volume will decrease as she gets bigger and takes up more room in your uterus. Her eyesight continues to develop, though it's not very keen; even after she's born, she'll keep her eyes closed for a good part of the day. When she does open them, she'll respond to changes in light but will have 20/400 vision – which means she can only make out objects a few inches from her face. (Normal adult vision is 20/20.)"

How far along? 30 weeks!
Baby’s Size: I have no idea, I'm sure at least 3lbs. He's always been a pretty big boy. We have our next growth scan in 6 days so I'll find out then!
Total Weight Gain: I've stopped counting, but I think something like 14lbs, which is NO WHERE near how much I gained with Nolan, yay!
Bellybutton: I think it has pretty much popped out. I don't have a huge belly button though so it doesn't really stick out, it's just really stretched and then a tip is sticking out. When I cough a lot it sticks far out...gross huh?
Stretchmarks: Kaleb has definitely surpassed Nolan in the "amount of stretch marks given to mommy" category. Yuck!
Maternity Clothes: They don't really fit anymore :(
Gender: Boy
Movement: All over the place. He gets pissy at different positions I might sit in and hates when I go to sleep and kicks the side that is touching my body pillow. I often find his head in my ribs and have to poke him to get out of there, although that really doesn't work. He also jumps up and down on my bladder which feels like you are bursting to go pee and you have to squeeze really hard not to. I never had this feeling with Nolan, weird.
Sleep: I wake up once during the night to go to the bathroom and then about 5-10 times to switch sides, which basically takes an army to help me move. I basically have to wake up, sit up, turn to the other side, pick my body pillow up from the other side, fall back down into bed, and maneuver my body pillow under my stomach. Dennis is losing sleep as well with all of the movement.
Symptoms: EXHAUSTION!!! OMG...I forgot how it comes back the third trimester but damn. I forgot I could feel this tired. I just want to sleep all of the time, or stare at a wall when at work. Some VERY slight swelling in my left foot, nothing like what I had with Nolan though. Some nausea which is weird since I haven't had that for a couple months. ohh and the whole starving feeling again. just like being back in the first trimester, yuck!
Food Aversions: large pieces of chicken
Food Cravings: just lots of food, nothing particular
Best Moments this week: Uhmm...it's been a really stressful week. I guess the free italian food at work was pretty exciting :)
What I miss: Being able to roll over in bed without an army having to come help me
What I am Looking forward to: My birthday apparently is in a week, but with all of the appointments and worries I've completely forgotten that until a few days ago. I look forward to December 27th when my c-section had been set for. I look forward to the next growth scan in 6 days as well!
Milestones: Only about 8 more weeks until I get to meet my little man, I've finally reached 30 weeks which everyone is surprised even happened! YAY!

It sounds like Baby K has a real personality!
He's been a fighter so far, and I'm sure he will be once he's born too.
{elliot kicks the body pillow, too. He hates it. It cracks me up}
