30w1d [+bump]

How far along: 30w1d

Total weight gain: 19lbs

Size and growth of the baby: almost 3lbs. & almost 16 inches long 
From my weekly email:  A pint and a half of amniotic fluid surrounds your baby, but that volume will decrease as [s]he gets bigger and takes up more room in your uterus.  Your baby's eyesight continues to develop, though it's not very keen; even after [s]he's born, [s]he'll keep his or her eyes closed for a good part of the day. When the baby does open them, [s]he'll respond to changes in light but will have 20/400 vision – which means [s]he can only make out objects a few inches from his or her face. (Normal adult vision is 20/20.)

Sex: unknown

Maternity clothes: almost always

Sleep: not terrible, but lots of potty breaks [& leg cramps] throughout the night

Best moment(s) of the week: Passing my glucose test and hearing the baby's heartbeat again! :)

Movement: yes...I'm pretty sure the baby flipped [into position] after my visit to the chiropractor.  Feeling kicks up high now and lots of pressure down low

Food cravings/aversions: nothing crazy, maybe pizza?

Morning sickness: no

Symptoms: some back issues this week [went to the Chiropractor to help]

Belly button in or out: in, but flattening

What I miss: flipping over in the middle of the night without it being a 'process'

What I'm looking forward to: our 1st baby shower! :)
