30 weeks: Bumpdate

30 weeks

Feeling: The first half of the week was great – the energy surge continued, but the weekend has not been quite so good. The tiredness has returned and I’m just generally feeling a bit under the weather, but I haven’t been sleeping too well, which probably explains it and I’m sure it will pass again.

My back is starting to get a bit achy now and I definitely cannot stand for very long at a time any more without feeling like I’m going to pass out.

The baby is super active now and Mr M and my mum have managed to feel Little R-M having a kick, which is lovely as it lets them start to feel involved as well. I was in the bath last night and could see it wriggling around too, which is a very odd experience, but also lovely and reassuring.

As an aside, I cannot believe we are in the 30s already!

Appointments: None this week.

Looking: Bump looks like it has changed shape a bit over the past few days, which is probably because Little R-M is such a wriggler! It looks flatter at the front to me, whereas before it was much rounder. I’m feeling huge now and it’s taking a while to get used to looking so much bigger. My tummy button is looking nearly ready to pop out.

Craving: Still orange juice and everything orange related – squash, satsumas, anything.

Sleeping: Sleeping has hit a brick wall. I am waking up all the time, uncomfortable and having bad dreams. I get back to sleep quite easily, but I don’t sleep for long at any given stretch.

Baby is the size of: A large cabbage

      Oh thanks honey, I didn’t feel it that day! I’d actually already had my PJs on before I realised we hadn’t done the pic, so excuse the ready for bed face! haha. Is it just me or has the last few weeks gone by really quickly? the second trimester seemed to last much longer, but now it’s flying by! Oh no, praying for sleep for us both hun xx
