30 weeks and sneak peek of the nursery

How far along: 30 Weeks! Only 10 more to go. I can't believe it

Total weight gain: 16 lbs

Size and growth of the baby: Here's my Update from Baby Center.Com
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.)

Maternity clothes: All the time though I usually just throw on my comfy maxi dresses. Finding a swimsuit to wear has been torture. I think I scared everyone away at the beach this weekend

Sleep: I now take naps daily although I still wake up early every morning. I usually get up once a night to use the bathroom and finding a comfortable position in bed or even rolling over has become a hassle!

Best moment(s) of the week: Getting her nursery started. Of course I ordered a ton of stuff off etsy to decorate her room with that I'm still waiting on. I can't wait until it's finished. My mom and I also went shopping and picked up the remaining things off my baby list. Thanks to all you fabulous ladies for your suggestions

Food cravings/aversions: No aversions. Still craving sweets and now if I don't eat at least every 2-3 hours I am a crab! Well who am I kidding. This week my mood swings have been crazy. I feel bad for my mom and the hubs

Morning sickness: None thankfully!

Symptoms: Braxton Hicks. They have been so bad lately they take my breath away.

Labor signs: None besides the braxton hicks

Belly button in or out: Still flat though one end seems to poke out a bit which makes my belly button look lopsided

What I miss: Being able to lay or sit still for more than 5 minutes. I'm always fidgeting and trying to get comfortable.

What I'm looking forward to: Finishing the nursery!

Here are the belly pics. Don't be scared by the image of my in my swimsuit

And to end this post I will give you a little sneak peek of the nursery
