Husband Notes"I just noticed your belly looks...weird."

Due date: February 11, 2019

How far along: 30 weeks; baby's skin is getting smoother and the brain is getting wrinklier

Size of baby: As big as a zucchini

Gender: Baby GIRL!

Total weight gain: 28 lbs.

Symptoms: The third trimester is taking over...I'm tired again!

Physical changes: My linea negra is getting darker and more noticeable! It looks so weird!

Labor signs: Feeling Braxton-Hicks contractions every day

Stretch marks: None

Wedding ring: On

Maternity clothes: Still doing fine without maternity shirts...but if this belly gets bigger...

Diet: Always hungry and never satiated. Pregnancy problems. Sigh.

Food cravings:
        • Honey graham crackers - been eating these like crazy!

        • Citrus fruits and tropical fruits
        • Milk
        • Spicy foods - buffalo sauce!
        • Chocolate
        • Popcorn

Food aversions: Pork? It's the only thing that doesn't sound appetizing.

Exercise: We've been busy, so I haven't walked much this week. I've been doing prenatal yoga at home and it's really helping my lower back issues. 

Sleep: I'm consistently waking up at 4AM...not sure why. I don't need to use the restroom or anything. I guess my body is just done sleeping at that time.

Miss anything in particular: Having energy. I feel like I'm slowing down again.

Mood: I've been a little depressed this week. I keep having anxiety about how different my life will be. I'm worried about not being able to devote as much time to other people. Now that we know it's a baby girl, I feel like I have this new responsibility to guide her and be an example for her. 

Looking forward to: Catching up on sleep. Also looking forward to catching up with friends and family for the rest of the month.

Worst moment this week: We painted the master bedroom, nursery, and kitchen walls white last weekend and the paint looks BLUE. The color we chose was White Moderne by Behr. It had yellow tones to it, but it also had black in it as well...which killed the creamy tones of the paint color. I'm super bummed about it, but there's not much we can do. We tried to get the color adjusted by adding more bright yellow, but it still looks off. Sad.

Best moment this week: Finding Maddie! Evan locked her in the basement before he left and I was frantically looking for her for a good 10-15 minutes.
