Hi.

Welcome to She Is Blessed. Hope you follow along on my journey through the adventures of marriage, becoming a mom, creations in the kitchen, my love of all things sweet, and my journey of faith.

30 Weeks

30 Weeks

How far along: 30 weeks, 2 days

Total weight gain: 29 pounds
Maternity clothes? Of course! I just bought some new jeans this past weekend at Gap. It's officially weather weather in Dallas this past weekend so I'm looking forward to adding leggings and sweaters into the mix. 
Stretch marks? So far I haven't found any so I'm hopeful I won't get them.
Sleep: Pretty good this past weekend even though I was waking up a lot through the night. I felt rested in the morning. 
Best moment this week: Saturday was my baby shower and it was so great to spend time with family and friends to celebrate Baby J. Everything was beautiful and came together perfectly. 
Miss anything? Nothing to much this week. I'm just ready for her to be here! 
Movement: She must be switching positions because I'm feeling movement towards the top of my stomach instead of just below my belly button. She is much more active early in the morning and late at night when I get ready to go to bed.
Food cravings: Chocolate milkshakes from Baum's. I've only had two so far but they keep popping up in my mind. I like how icy they are BUT they must be made with real ice cream and not soft serve.  Very specific haha!
Labor Signs: No labor pains or Braxton Hicks this past week. 
Symptoms: Swollen ankles at the end of the day but nothing else that I haven't mentioned before. The nausea I was experiencing is dwindling and only really comes up in the morning when I don't sleep well. 
Looking forward to: The holidays! I have a feeling the next ten weeks are going to fly by with holiday and family activities. I start going to the doctor every two weeks now and I look forward to each appointment to see how she's measuring and hear her heartbeat.
