30 Weeks – Pregnancy Update

30 weeks baby

It feels like I’ve been pregnant forever and yet at the same time this pregnancy has flown by. 10 – 12 more weeks until we meet baby 4. At my last OB appointment he was measuring 31 weeks which really isn’t a surprise since I tend to have big babies. However, I’d prefer to NOT break any records with this birth, so let’s pray for anything under 11lbs.

I’ve just entered the heart burn/indigestion phase of pregnancy and it sucks just as much as I remembered. I’m also still dealing with hip pain. I’m still trying out figure out how to prevent it as it seems too much or too little walking causes me pain. I guess I need to find a healthy balance, which is somewhat unlikely with 3 little boys running around.

I can’t complain too much though, it’s been a pretty uneventful pregnancy thus far, just the way everyone likes it. My only real concern is winter weather come January. It would totally suck to be trapped in a snow storm while in labor. And if this winter is anything like what they are predicting we could be tempting fate. It’s not that I couldn’t birth the baby on my own I’m primarily concerned with my propensity for heavy bleeding after delivery. TMI

I think we have a name picked out for this guy. I’m not ready to share it just yet as we could still change our minds but I’m about 90% sure. Other than possibly having a name selected we haven’t done any other planning for this baby yet. I mean if he comes early we own everything we need and could get stuff together, plus newborns really don’t require too much stuff for the first few weeks.

    The heartburn & hip pain are the worst, but at least they are gone fast once the little ones arrive. Will be keeping “warm weather” (or at least “dry weather”?) thoughts in my head as January approaches. I know I was hoping to miss a nasty rain storm we had here the week that Elise arrived. I was thankful she decided to show up on a dry day where it wasn’t too chilly when we had to head out at 1:30 in the morning. Wishing you the best in these last couple of months!
