30 Weeks

I hit the 30 week mark in this pregnancy on Monday!

I went to the doctor last week and I've gained 15 pounds total. My blood pressure was 122/68 and the baby's heart rate was 142.

Aubrey moves a lot and we are at the point where I can see just about every movement from the outside.

I'm not sleeping very well most nights.  I have a few sleepless nights in a row and then I'll have an awesome full night of sleep.

I have had cramps at some point every day, been super emotional, and just haven't felt great.  My doctor told me to eat, drink, and rest more.  I've been trying!!  I have been limiting myself to walking only 2 or 3 times a week and I've tried to sleep during Langley's nap time every day.  I've felt a little better in the past few days.  I've also tried to eat every few hours and not let myself get hungry.  Bring.On.The.Pounds.

I wear all maternity clothes, accept for my yoga/sweat pants and tshirts/sweatshirts (which is what I wear most days!) 

Differences in this prenancy than with the first one:  I'm hot most of the time, my skin has been itchy and sensitive, I do not have the black line down my stomach, I am more tired and uncomfortable, I've gained less weight, and I haven't obsessively kept up with every week in the "what to expect" book or online. 

I am so excited to meet my precious Aubrey!  I pray for her everyday.  Langley kisses my belly everyday.  We are so excited to meet her in 10 weeks -  OR LESS!
