Baby Brown: Week 30

How far along: 30 weeks - how are we in the 10 week countdown?! 

Due date: March 27, 2016

Baby Size: my all time favorite fruit - cantaloupe! 

Weight gain: I will give you all a legit update on this next week since I go to the doctor next week. 

Maternity Clothes: loving all things stretchy.  Eventually this big booty judy isn't even going to fit in her maternity work pants! 

Stretch Marks: nope!

Sleep: waking up 3x a night, but the sleep itself hasn't been terrible this week.  His movements have become less noticeable as I fall asleep (partially because he is running out of space to move in there).  But don't get me wrong, he is still fully making his presence known! 

Gender: BOY!!! 

Name:  Harrison Cole Brown !

Movement: he has favored the right side of my body more recently and I can't help but wonder what body parts are moving around in there.  Movements are less sudden kicks and more constant rolls. I experienced what it means when they are "under your ribs" for the first time this week.  Talk about something I've never felt before! 

Best moment this week: definitely the shower for our sweet boy.  We were gifted so many amazing things that I know will come in handy very soon! 

Looking forward to: all the upcoming things for baby Brown - hospital tour, showers and my 34 week appointment!

Husband is: still surprised that my bump can keep growing.  We looked back at what my 20 week photo looked like and thought to ourselves "wow - I can't believe we thought you were big then!" With my constant potty break in the middle of the night, he has started to give me a boost up without me even realizing that he is waking up and it's so sweet.  Thankful he still have muscles even though mine are all gone in my stomach! 

Food cravings: still loving all things "clean" - maybe a sign of nesting?! Also I have been craving baths.  They just make me feel so relaxed. And this isn't new, but I have been chewing on ice like no other! 

Anything making you queasy or sick: nope.

Labor Signs: nothing yet, but the countdown is ON!

Missing Most: the energy I had prior to pregnancy and not having back pains. 

Symptoms: serious right back pains between the area my bra is and down. Also feeling some pressure/pain on my lower back and hips area.  

Nursery: table next to the chair is painted and the knobs are purchased.  Still have a few more purchases I need to do (standing lamp, curtains and rod and some decor) but loving how it's all coming together.  Slowly but surely!

Belly Button in or out? flouty (flat/outie)

Wedding rings on or off? on and still going strong! 

Mood: still feeling great.  I cannot believe our little man is going to be here in such a short amount of time.  It's crazy to me that in only a short 7 weeks D.J. will leave for Spring Training and I will be 37 weeks pregnant.  After he leaves the next time I will see him is when we are becoming parents.  These next few weeks I am embracing the family we have now before we grow and bring little dude into the world!

Workouts: Did a 35 minute prenatal yoga video on youtube yesterday.  It was very relaxing and made my body feel very good! 


  1. You're so close! Have you had any braxton hicks at all?! I am so curious as to what they feel like and if I will ever realize I am having them! haha. Crazy that your man leaves and then comes back when it is baby time!!

  2. Found you through Hope today! I am also expecting - 35 weeks currently. My little one also favors my right side, which looks so crazy at night when she sticks her but straight up. :)

    I am also a lover of baths. They are so necessary at this point. My husband travels for work, too, but I am thankful he isn't gone for multiple weeks at a time. How crazy that yours will head off to training camp and when he returns, he'll become a dad!


Thank you so much for leaving a comment on the blog! I cannot wait to read it and check out your blog! xx, cayte
