30 weeks :)

How your baby's growing:

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.)

Size of Baby: About 16 inches long and approximately 3ish pounds

Total Weight Loss/Gain: -17 pounds

Maternity Clothes: maternity jeans and trying to find cute tops to wear so I actually look pregnant and not just large :-P

Gender: GIRL! Vivienne Claire Hall.

Movement: She's getting predictable and definitely settling into her own schedule.  She's really active around 8-11 in the morning, then chills out til about 3 in the afternoon until 5 or so at night and then without fail has a riverdance style dance party as I lay down to sleep.  Must be like 80s night in there for her lol! :P

Sleep: There never seems to be enough but it is better and more consistent lately.  Learning how to nap when I can which has been the biggest help.

What I miss: Laying on my stomach. Coffee. Ibuprofin.

What I'm looking forward to: Enjoying the rest of this pregnancy as much as possible... baby gear collecting... getting her room ready to go... my baby shower... holding her in my arms when all is said and done.

Cravings: the usual, cheese, yellow tomatoes, melon.  Add in lettuce wraps and gummy worms and there ya go.

Symptoms: heartburn, general soreness and tiredness and still battling some morning sickness.
