30 Weeks Pregnant

30 WEEKS PREGNANT!! 3-0 WEEKS! The third trimester sounds legit, but when you get into the 30+ weeks, things feels/gets real!

December 4th is still my induction date, so 2 months, aka 9 weeks until he arrives! DO YOU KNOW HOW FAST 2 MONTHS GOES BY?!? I'm freaking out over here! I can't believe we're going to have another little baby in our family soon! AHHHH!

Alright, enough yelling.

This week I haven't felt him move as much as he has been. I do still feel movements every day, but I think he's running out of room in there. He's about 3lbs and almost 16 inches, but I swear sometimes it feels like I'm carrying a 10lb baby! It feels like he's sitting sooo slow, and at times I really think he's going to fall out haha. I don't know if that's normal, or if he really is just low, because Piper never dropped at all. She was always ALL the way up in my ribs. She was in the very highest position they can be, even when I was pushing, so I had to push her allllll the way down and out. Having him in a different position is super weird.

The pregnancy waddle is back in full force people! We went to a boat show yesterday (Jordan is currently trying to convince me to sell everything we own, and live on a boat for a couple of years haha...), and the waddle was on another level! Sometimes my hips are super achy and he's chilling pretty low, so waddling is my only method of transportation.

Nausea and sickness is on and off again these days, but it's NOTHING like the 24/7 nausea during the first trimester, so I'm not complaining. My stomach is super squished still, so I feel RAVENOUS and then completely stuffed after a few bites. It's actually really unsatisfying when you're really excited to eat a meal, but there's just no room. After 20-30 minutes I'm so hungry again though....so I'm pretty much eating at all times of the day haha. 

Other than not being able to eat a TON at once (I've always had a big appetite, so it's weird making smaller portions ha), my eating has been pretty normal. I've been wanting a lot of healthy fats lately (nut butter, avocado, seeds, oils, etc). The baby's brain develops a ton during this last stretch, so healthy fats are SO important! I'm making sure to still incorporate all of the nutrient dense foods, with occasional treats, which is a balance that works for me!

Workouts were really good this week! I found out the complex we live in actually has a little gym, so I've been going there at night after Jordan puts Piper down. I like the convenience of working out at home, but I always push myself more when I'm in a gym. Plus, it's right by our apartment so that's also pretty convenient. I still go on a 30-60 minute walk every morning with Pipes and the pup, and I've been doing cardio and resistance 4-5x as well (my workout log is HERE). I take it a day at a time, and do what feels best, because it's constantly changing. I'm sure in the next couple of weeks things will be at a much lower impact, but for now I'm still feeling good! Just tired.
