Jayden: 30 Weeks

Yesterday marked 30 weeks! Only 10 weeks more or less to go! I’m getting very anxious at this point. When in bed my lower body never wants to cooperate, it just feels so heavy. When laying on my sides, it’s like all of my weight is being transferred to my hips and butt. I need a preggy pillow. JT’s wiggling all over the place, jabbing me wherever possible, lol. It’s not so much the unpleasant parts of pregnancy that have me anxious, I’m just ready to hold my bundle and move shortly after so that I can nest! We’re trying to move in May when school lets out for Daddy. It’s funny because JT’s due to arrive on a day that Daddy has finals! My mother will be here in advance so we have nothing to worry about.

We had a visit with the doctor today. Everything’s looking good. I gained 5lbs in 2 weeks, so I’m now at 122lbs with a total of 17lbs gained. I know I mentioned that I weighed 121lbs in my 27th week update, BUT when I caught a cold, I couldn’t eat much resulting in losing those hard earned pounds!!! It’s just so amazing how fast I can put on weight now. Pre-pregnancy I couldn’t even gain an ounce in a YEAR! My goal is to reach over 130lbs in hopes that I will be able to keep some of the weight. Most likely I won’t be able to…being an active, breastfeeding mother, *sigh*. I received my hospital check-in packet. I’m definitely going to the epidural class as it is required to receive one (I don’t want to take any chances) and I will try to go to the childbirth class. There’s one for breastfeeding but I don’t know if I’ll go or not. There’s so many resources right at my finger tips but that hands on learning helps too. We’ll see what happens.

That’s all for now, I’m pretty sure these last 10 weeks will bring something new and I’m ready!

    I highly recommend the Snoogle body pillow! I wouldn’t have been able to do without it in the end!

  2. You might be able to get away with using a king size pillow. My wife did just fine with it. Less pillow to move out of the way twice a night when she got up to pee.

    yes, you definitely need a body pillow. i was so miserable toward the end of my pregnancy but the body pillow helped me feel more comfortable when i slept. i couldn’t afford the fancy preggy pillows, just a simple body pillow from Walmart.

    Hey, some great advice for sleep help, before spending money on a pregnancy pillow try a thinner one for the top part (can be placed partailly under your belly while side sleeping) and a thicker one for your legs. It is best for your circulation to have your knees and ankles not touch. This has done the trick for me. I still get a bit numb an either side but I have gotten used to it. I have 17 days til my delivery!

    I hope you have a blast at your shower and eat lots of yummy stuff! Can’t wait til after I have William and get off the pain meds so I can can have a margarita!!!
