Things I Want To Remember: Week 30 | Anchors Aweigh


Things I Want To Remember: Week 30

I remember telling my sister that I would breathe a sigh of relief when I made it to 30 weeks. I know 24 weeks is considered viability, but 30 weeks just feels like such a milestone. 10 weeks or less to go... that doesn't seem possible! Week 30 has been a good one!

I had a doctor's appointment to check the heartbeat, and everything looks great! The heartbeat was in the 120s/130s, which the doctor seemed pleased with. Taylor's was always in the high 140s, so I am not used to hearing the 120 number. If the doctor says it's normal, then I'm a happy camper. My belly is also measuring right at 30 weeks, so that's a praise!

I gained 2 pounds in the last two weeks, bringing my pregnancy total to +21 pounds. Since early in the second trimester, I have been averaging about a pound a week.

The hip pain I mentioned last week has gotten so much more manageable. Very grateful! I mentioned it to the doctor, and she said it is completely normal.

Movement has started changing from swift kicks to slow jabs and rolls. I think our little guy is starting to run out of room!

My Virginia friends threw me a baby shower this week, and it was so so perfect! I will blog about it when I get the pictures, but I felt so loved and so grateful for such wonderful friends on the east coast.

Last but not least, if I haven't mentioned it before, stairs are my arch nemesis. I can walk 2-3 miles with Jenny without breathing heavily, but one flight of stairs has me out of breath by the time I reach the top. When I am on the phone with Parker, he can always tell when I've walked up the stairs because I start huffing and puffing. It's so pathetic, yall.

Haha I remember hating my stairs too! It's amazing how they can take it out of you.

Woohoo it's getting to the exciting part! When you start going to the OB every 2 weeks and wondering if certain pains and symptoms mean labor is starting. :) I remember not understanding how I still had 10 weeks left when I hit the 30 week mark. I mean how could I get ANY bigger?! Rolling over in bed was like an olympic sport. You are a beautiful pregnant momma, Chelsea. It's fun to follow your updates and I love your positive light you shine. Merry Christmas to you, Parker, Baby and Jenny. <3
