It’s been awhile since I did a pregnancy update, and I felt like 30 weeks deserved an update! It’s always an exciting time when you reach these weeks of counting down until 40 weeks. 🙂

I struggled through a head cold for over a week, and was very miserable during that time. Trying to get comfortable to sleep at night is getting difficult. When you add a head cold where you can’t breath at all, it makes it super difficult! I’m so thankful to be over that, and hope I don’t get sick again before the baby is born!
They say movements slow down in third trimester as the baby gets larger. So far this baby is not slowing down at all, if anything it is moving around even more! Whenever I lay down to rest the baby wants to visit. 🙂 Sean and the children get to feel lots of kicks and punches, which is sweet.
I finally broke down and ordered compression hose to try for my varicose veins. While they don’t take all the swelling away, they do seem to be helping. Some mornings I’m almost wiped out of my energy after trying to get those crazy things on! I ordered maternity compression hose from Ames Walker, and like the quality of them.
There are some days I feel like nesting, and want to take on my whole house. Sean found me in tears in the garage the other day, I was trying to move some tubs of clothes around and basically got stuck because a huge cramp started in my leg. He told me I had to slow down and helped me out of my predicament!
Other days I want to snuggle in bed all day long and read a book and sleep. So I have to try and balance those two extremes and stay somewhere in the middle. 🙂 I’m definitely taking a lot more naps than when I’m not pregnant, but I keep telling myself it’s just a stage of life and it really is ok to rest more!
I’m working on finding space in our small bedroom for the baby things. I have a vision in my mind of what I want it to look like, but it involves some painting of baby furniture, which involves my husband. 😉 He is the realist between the two of us, after owning a custom cabinet shop for several years he knows these projects can get more complicated than you would like them to be. We are still talking through what we might do, but he understands my need of having a sweet space for the baby.
How are the other pregnant mama’s doing? I love hearing updates!
