30 Weeks!

How Far Along: 30 weeks, 10 weeks to go!

Size of baby: Baby S is about 15.7 inches long, the size of a head of cabbage or squash, and weighs almost 3 pounds. 

Weight Gain/Loss: Another growth spurt! I weighed in at 157 lbs today.

Body Changes: Bigger belly and boobies ;)

Gender: It's a GIRL!

Movement: She still likes to dance during the night, especially between 4am and 6am. That's a problem if I wake up early! She also moves more after I eat my first breakfast. Lately, I've been able to feel her movement, and she presses against the surface more. Kind of creepy, but it's cool ;)

Sleep: It's been alright. I've been getting up once a night to pee, though a few nights I get up twice. Oh, and Dexter has decided he needs to be let out to go potty in the middle of the night. Frustrating!

What I'm looking forward to: The labor and delivery tour next Tuesday!

Cravings: Sugary treats and fast food. I've been eating healthy too long!

Symptoms: The sciatic pain has disappeared. Replaced by ligament pains, tingling ribs, lower back pain... the usual complaints at this stage. I've lost the ability to bend over easily haha.

Best Moment This Week: Just being able to feel the baby more and more. I can't believe I'm so far along! Something about hitting 30 weeks has really gotten to me. We're really on the downhill now.

A friend sent us these beautiful outfits. I can't wait to dress her up!

We do have one issue that's surfaced: We can't agree on a name. Ok, we can agree on TWO names, and we have no idea which one we want to use. We used to be pretty certain and now... it's in the air. So what's your opinion? Victoria "Tori" Marie or Penelope "Penny" Ann?


  1. I like Emmaline (Emma) . . . OH! That wasn't one of the choices!! ;)

    Penelope gets my vote!

    No matter what her name . . . we love her AND her name already!

  2. Don says:

    I like Caroline the best and Penelope next!

  3. Mallory says . . .


  4. Penelope!! I love the nickname Penny! Soooo cute!

  5. That would be a hard decision for me too, I love both of the names...I guess you will definitely know once you see her, which name fits her better. That's what my parents did with me!!!
