How far along? 30 weeks! The BIG 3-0!
Total Weight Gain/Loss: 12 lbs.
Maternity Clothes: Yes!
Movement: I think she flipped!!!! After making the discovery that she was laying transverse, I followed the exercises/stretches on spinningbabies.org and saw a chiropractor and I *think* she flipped! My pelvis was misaligned which was likely causing the round ligaments to be tight, thus forcing Addilyn into a weird position(transverse). But I think it’s better, I felt movement really low in my pelvis as well as in my ribs for the first time…can’t believe it worked!
Have I mentioned how strong her kicks are? My GOODNESS this girl is tough! Sometimes it’s so uncomfortable I have to jump up from wherever I’m sitting and refrain from letting out a yelp, ha! I love it, but my goodness, this girl has got her Daddy’s karate-chopping genes!
Sleep: MUCH better after seeing Dr. Tiffany! My back pain is completely gone and sleep is much better!
What I miss: I miss my waist…ha! Of course I wouldn’t change a thing about being pregnant, I love it so much. But I had lost 25 lbs just a couple months before I got pregnant and I was so enjoying my ‘new self’. I’m very much looking forward to spending this spring OUTSIDE going on walks with my beautiful baby girl, getting my “old/new” body back!!! I wouldn’t change anything though, PRAISE GOD for this amazing miracle happening inside of me. I can’t wait to meet this beautiful little blessing!
Cravings: Nope, no cravings.
Symptoms: No more back pain thanks to the chiropractor! Now if I could just bring myself to go see her as often as I should…$40 every visit is a downer.
Best Moment This Week: Going to our 3rd trimester class at the midwifery center. Blaire did the class and I loved the way she spoke about what a beautiful experience it is. Made me want to cry, knowing that Scott and I will be experiencing that SO SOON! Her description of the overwhelming love that you feel for your child—ah! I just can’t wait!!
