Week 30 (Baby #2)
How far along - 30 weeks, due November 30th.
Gender - A little gentleman.
Cravings - Naps.
Aversions - Whatever happens to give me heartburn. It's a constant flip of the coin.
Best moment - Dragging out the Halloween/Fall decorations box!
Looking forward to - Any coolness to the air that nature wants to give me. I keep seeing fall outfits pop up on social media and it tricks me into thinking that when I walk outside there will be a coolness to the air. There isn't.
Miss anything - Not having heartburn, especially not waking up in the middle of the night from it.
Movement - Tons. I'm waiting for a lopsided tummy. I always thought that was too funny.
Other pregnancy symptoms - The top symptom this week is heartburn and acid reflux. It is awful and keeps waking me up at night or keeps me from falling to sleep. Still tired all of the time. I deep clean the house before I decorate, so my back is not so happy with me about that. Nausea if I wait too long to have breakfast in the mornings. And, the running to the bathroom has really ramped up. Definitely the most annoying symptom.
I had my 3 hour glucose test at the end of last week. I ended up in a wheelchair because I felt just terrible and dizzy. I also forgot to bring the book I made a mental note to borrow from the library. So, I felt just super cool sitting in a wheelchair doing nothing except being wheeled in and out to do the many blood draws. I haven't heard back yet about the results. I'm hoping that means I passed this time. Aria and I made a batch of pumpkin spice chocolate chip cookies over the weekend just in case I fail. They are my favorite fall treat and I didn't want to miss out if I ended up not able to have any!
Aria's thoughts - Nothing new or notable this week.
