Bumpdate || Thirty

How far along: 30 weeks - I don't feel like this is possible!

Due Date: December 17, 2015

Baby is the size of: Not as cute as a Barbie convertible, but she's the size of a cucumber (about 16 inches long, around 3 pounds). She'll be putting on about half a pound a week from the point on. And she's strong enough to grasp a finger - I. can't. wait. :)

Symptoms: Ultimate clumsiness. I pretty much make a mess everywhere I go. Easily exhausted, especially from Wednesday on. Shortness of breath at times. The weird dreams are back within the last few nights, and they never make any sense what so ever. My stomach feels like it gets bigger and bigger throughout the day, so by mid afternoon, I feel like a beached whale. So cute.

Gender: A sweet little girl. Post here. I like how when people ask what you're having, some people are all "how precious, a little girl" and some people are like "oh, my daughter was such a pain. You're in trouble" That's nice. Be quiet please. Mine will be perfect.

Name: Harper Elizabeth. Post here.

Movement: She's a wild woman most evenings. Some mornings she's an early bird and I can watch my stomach do the wave. Her chest is still on my right side, so I know when I feel movement on my left it's her little knees and feet. 

Nursery: Spent sometime at Hobby Lobby on Saturday picking up some wall decor for her room. I'm going to wait until her crib sheet arrives to put anything up to make sure the colors will look good. Her little nursery is becoming my favorite room in the house! I loooove how it's coming together!

Maternity Clothes: I was pretty whiny about clothes last week on the bumpdate. I have plenty of donations from friends of maternity clothes and think I should be okay making it through. But when I wake up before 5am, I normally choose what I know is comfortable and whatever I don't have to think too much about. I'm a creature of habit when I want to be comfortable. I still will say that I hate shoes and I stand by that. 

Sleep: I sleep through the night with occasional potty breaks some nights, but the weird dreams are making my sleep a little more interrupted than normal. But I WON'T COMPLAIN! I love sleep. 

Best Moment This Week: Hearing her little heart beating away at our doctor's appointment last Monday. We have another appointment in two weeks, so we're definitely getting closer to her birthday! 

Missing Anything: I'm back on the sandwich kick. Ugh.

Cravings/Aversions: I really want a sandwich. The countdown is on.

Mood: I'm moody at times, I admit. I don't even know where it comes from half the time. But for the most part, I'm getting really excited about meeting this little babe.

Husband: Being really patient with these mood swings! Giving baby girl lots of belly kisses. And even got kicked in the face after one. It was a kick of love, I'm sure of it. :)

Looking Forward To: We're having a really quick maternity picture session on Sunday, and I'm really excited about it. :)
