30 Weeks

When did this happen?!

Only 10 more weeks to go, I can't believe it. Time really has flown by. Now my appointments are every 2 weeks, and the best part is that I get another sonogram at my next appointment! I can't wait to see baby Stybs (or as my 3 year old nice calls it "Stubs") again.

My belly is getting bigger daily, and I can tell that I've started waddling. I noticed today that my weight shifts from one side to the other as I take each step.

This month's updates:

Cravings/Aversions: none
Weight: +2 (+20 overall) I was very happy and surprised by this, so I didn't feel guilty at all about drinking a cookies-n-cream milkshake from Chick-fil-a (and it was delicious!)
Morning Sickness: all good
Energy: feeling pretty normal, but adding a nap to my daily schedule isn't hurting.

27 Weeks

I'm in the third trimester... I can't believe it!
On Friday (at 26 1/2 weeks) I had my glucose test. Everyone said it wasn't as bad as it was made out to be, but that orange flavored sugar water was NASTY! I felt so nauseous afterward. I was told I would only hear about the test if I failed it. It has been a week and I haven't heard anything so I guess I passed!

In other baby news, we (I think) have settled on some names. It's hard not knowing the sex, because we have to come up with a boy's and a girl's name. And since we were having the most difficulty agreeing on a girl's name, we're pretty sure that means baby Stybs is a girl. We have decided on Alec William and are testing out Kate Alexandra (to see if we like it).

And now for the gratuitous bump shots:
I can't believe how much it has grown in just 2 weeks!

This month's updates:

Cravings: still hooked on salty and fried foods.
Aversions: The smell of coffee will still get to me, but I have been able to have (most of) a cup of vanilla coffee with vanilla creamer and of course decaf peppermint mocha from Starbucks
Weight: +18 overall. I swear the bump grows overnight sometimes
Morning Sickness: all good
Energy: Good, but I've been getting back aches if I stand or walk too long.
