30 weeks #bump update and For Two Fitness Winner

I can’t believe that it’s week 30!!  I really feel like it was just week 20 yesterday!!  Where have the last 10 weeks gone!??!

20 weeks

20 weeks

30 weeks

30 weeks

How far along:  30 weeks

Due Date:  February 13, 2015

Total weight gain: 17 pounds

Maternity clothes: 95% of the time except for some workout clothes that are nice and stretchy

Sleep:  Not so great!  With the bronchitis that I had this week along with going to the bathroom at least two times it’s been rough.  I have had an occasional night when I sleep pretty good!  I’m thankful for those!  At this point I’m just getting used to being tired

Exercise:  At 30 weeks I think I am done running!  Between the belly and the bronchitis that is thankfully getting better I think it’s over for me!  I’m still doing power walking at an incline, using the elliptical and doing weight training.  Not bad for 30 weeks!


Miss anything:  Burpees…!!  I know weird right?!?!  Yesterday at the gym I saw a girl doing them and I missed them!!  Of course I miss running but I know it’s all worth it!  I also missing putting my boots on with ease… bending over is hard

Movement: Movement has changed over the last week the baby is very active after I eat which is typical and in the evenings.  Workouts usually lull the little one to sleep for a while.  Lots of rolling around and elbow jabs.  I am FINALLY happy to report that baby is head down and no longer in my rib cage which has given me some much needed relief!

Food cravings:  Lots of citrus lately!  We go through those clementines very quickly our house!  Also still loving my soup and chili!  I’ve been eating most meals out of bowls!  I’m also still loving and craving real ice cream!!  THE BEST

Anything making you queasy or sick: Still avoiding fish and the very smell of it makes so sick!!

Belly Button – in or out?  It’s out!

Wedding Rings – on or off? On!  My rings came off in my pregnancy with Sara at the end.  If I remember correctly it was around the 32-34 week mark but it was much warmer and my hands and feet swelled in the heat.

Happy or Moody? Happy but I’d be lying if I didn’t tell you that I’ve had some mood “swings” over the weeks.  Sometimes my patience just runs thins…. it happens!

Gender:  I’d say it’s pretty 50/50 with predictions these days! I really have no idea!  Sometimes I feel like it’s going to be a girl but this pregnancy has been totally different so who knows!  I love the waiting game though 🙂

Anything Else:  Still having issues with being hot!  Sometimes I break out into a full sweat in the middle of the work day! I’ve also been starting to clean/nest a little more!  I love bingeing and throwing stuff out!

Looking Forward To: Winter break which is two weeks away!  TWO WEEKS!!!  So excited but also a little nervous that Sara will go a little stir crazy since she loves doing stuff and going places all the time!  I’m also excited for much needed haircuts for both of this weekend!




That’s all I have for you today!  Oh and THE WINNER OF THE FOR TWO FITNESS GIVEAWAY is VALERIE PETERSEN!!  Congrats girl.  I know you are going to love some For Two Gear!!!  Woo hoo 🙂 

Have a great weekend everyone.. I know we will!
