30 Weeks

Can I just say...whoa.  I feel like I got HUGE this week!!!
How far along? 30 weeks!!! Baby is about 3 pounds and is the size of a butternut squash
Maternity clothes? Yes!  I just got a couple great pairs of maternity jeans this past week and I can't WAIT to wear them!  The average temperature for August is 94, but then the average temperature in September drops all the way down to 89'll be jeans weather any day now, really
Sleep:  Good!  I'm even making it through the day without needing a nap!
Best moment this week:  Jacob had a business trip, which is normally such a bummer, but this time he took me and Jenna with him and dropped us off in Austin so we could be with friends.  Let me tell you, the whole week went SO much faster and it was so great getting to see so many people I love.  I also got to try my hand at sewing while I was up there, which I discovered that I am absolutely terrible at haha...I guess I'll leave all the headband making for my girls to Christina

Miss Anything? This baby brain is killing me!!  Maybe literally...I think that I always take my prenatal in the morning, but then I can't remember if I did or not in the afternoon so...I'm pretty sure I'm going to OD on vitamins.  (For all you nutritionists out there: calm down, I'm just kidding.  All the fat-soluble vitamins are 50% or less of my DV so the most damage I'm doing is just wasting my money.  I'm pretty sure they do that on purpose to make them baby brain proof.) 
Movement: All the time!

Food cravings: This week I probably thought the most about eggs, bread and potatoes...although, I'd be lying if I said ice cream didn't make it on the menu a couple times as well!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Oh my gosh, yes.  Jenna had an awful stomach bug this week and I completely threw up changing one of her diapers!!!  To be fair though, it was probably only 20% because of pregnancy and 80% because of the rancidness of the diaper.  It was bad, y'all.
Have you started to show yet: Yep, and my belly is getting heeeeavy, especially laying on my side!  It kind of feels like wearing a fanny pack with a bowling ball in it
Gender: Girl
Labor Signs: None this week
Belly Button in or out? Out
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time:  Happy
Looking forward to: Taking hospital classes again!  Jacob and I signed up for a few...I know it hasn't been that long since we had a newborn, but we both felt like we wanted a refresher to make sure we were 100% ready for Baby J!


  1. Get a 7 day pill box, you will be able to easily tell if you remembered your vitamins for the day that way.

    1. Haha a pill box for my gummy vitamins...I can't decide if that makes me more like a 6-year-old or a 60-year-old :)

  2. You are so lovely, Julie!

    Also, I've been racking my brain lately about meds and vitamins, too. The stuggle is real.
