30 WEEKS PREGNANT | BLOGMAS DAY 19

Yeah, I know what you must think; pretty festive doing pregnancy update during Blogmas right? Okay probably not, but here we go. 


In my last pregnancy update, being 25 weeks pregnant, I told how things were starting to feel creepy. Just because I can feel the baby move so much more often and holy potato that baby moves like crazy all the time. Now when I'm 30 weeks pregnant, my nurse told me that if the baby won't be moving that much during the day, I should start checking out if it won't move at all. It's quite hard to explain, but she mentioned something that if I can't feel the baby moving for a while, I should try to listen to my belly, turn on my side have a little sugary snack or something and count if it moves 10 times in an hour or so, so everything's okay. I try not to take any pressure about it because the baby has been moving so much during these past weeks that it's insane. J just keeps reminding me about that all the time lol! 

FOOD CRAVINGS

I've finally got one! Finally. I thought I would be one of the rare pregnant women who doesn't crave anything that they usually don't eat. Well, now I do. I finally do. It's a little trip down to a memory lane. When I was little, I used to love the combination of potatoes and Knorr curry sauce. Well, at 28 weeks pregnant I found that again. I've been craving for that dish for weeks now and yes, I've eaten it multiple times too. We've probably have had potatoes and curry sauce for dinner for 4 weeks in a row now, multiple days in a week and I'm pretty sure J is getting enough of it. But I'm not. I just want to eat all the potatoes and curry sauce in the World. Okay, that was a bit overstatement. 


BABY BELLY; WEEK 25 VS. WEEK 30

My baby belly has grown so much! Oh my goodness, I've never been this huge in my life. Happy to know, though, that our nurse told me that there's no fat around my belly area so the belly you're seeing is just a baby. And my skin. Under the shirt. Our nurse also said that this would be a bit larger baby, at least according to her measurements, so I'm pretty excited to find out in our next appointment if she'll be sending us to the Hospital to measure the baby's weight and if it's large enough, or something, they consider to start the labour earlier. Or that's how I understood it. 

WEIGHT GAIN DURING PREGNANCY

I haven't gained a weight as much as I thought I would during this pregnancy. Everyone always keeps telling how ones get "fat" during their pregnancies, but I don't understand how. I eat like a horse, all the time and yet I've only managed to gain the only 4kg. That's not much at all when compared to ones who have told me that they gained 12kg during the whole pregnancy. Okay, I've still got 10 more weeks to go (maybe) & I know I shouldn't be comparing, but I don't see how that kind of a weight gain is possible. Then again, I don't eat sweets & I've only eaten homemade food (mostly) during the whole process so I guess that has something to do with it. Anyways, I'm happy that I don't need to work so hard to get back to shape after the baby is born. 

THINKING ABOUT GIVING BIRTH

I've been thinking about giving birth a lot lately, for obvious reasons. I've been wondering that if the baby grows too big and I end up carrying a 5kg turkey in my belly in February, I'm going to cross my legs. That baby won't come out the natural way, hell not. 
I've been also thinking about pain medication during the labor, I think I'm going to take everything they offer because I'm not that good at handling the pain. And even though I have never given a birth before, I can imagine it must hurt like hell. Even though, I believe it must hurt like hell - I'm not afraid of giving birth. The female body was basically build to do this so I think I won't die in the process. I think. I hope. I don't know. I've planned a whole post about this issue for early next year, where I'll be gathering my thoughts about upcoming labor.  

THE EMOTIONAL SIDE

I've been too calm during this pregnancy. I can't believe it! I'm a person with a huge temper and I've only thrown pizza at J for once. For once for god's sakes. I'm a bit disappointed, I thought I'd be a pregnant monster but Nah, I'm not. That's so weird. Positive, but weird.

  1. Your blog is so sweet! I love the bump photo! And that stuffed elephant is too cute! I agree that when I have a child I want all of the drugs, some say that's a bad idea, but I truly think it's a personal choice and I know how I handle pain. Can't wait to meet the little one!

  3. Wow it seems like you're having a good pregnancy. There are those horror stories of women having a terrible time, gaining weight, being snappy, and etc. My mom was, apparently! But wishing you health and joy :)

  5. Gosh I remember being 30 weeks pregnant! It feels so so long ago now! As for movements, it's best to just monitor and only worry if they go outside of their normal routine. instinct will totally take over though!

  9. Good luck with the last ten weeks! What a lovely weekend post- and bump! 😄
    Today was my due date and I'm currently sitting with my ten days old son so all I'll say is prepared yourself for anything. When it comes to pain relief your body will tell you what's good for you- some women can go with just gas and air but I had diamorphine too. I think there's so much pressure between some mums about natural birth but you'll find whatever works for you.

    If you do have any questions about what's ahead I'd be happy to help if I can but otherwise enjoy the rest of the journey!
