Baby Birthday Ticker Ticker

I've hit the 30's!

I cannot believe I am 30 weeks pregnant! Time is going by surprisingly fast & it freaks me out a bit.

I'm scared, guys. I'm scared that I know nothing about motherhood. I'm scared that once baby girl is here, I won't know what to do or when to do it. I'm scared we aren't prepared with everything she needs. I'm scared about money once she does come. But one thing I'm not scared about (yet) is labor. I don't know why. Maybe it's because I know I'll be in good hands? Who knows. I'm weird. I know everything will be fine once she is here, it's just the anticipation of the unknown that freaks me out.

Oh and by the way, this whole gestational diabetes thing really sucks. I can't eat anything I want & I hate that. There are SO many carbs in everything I like. Basically I have been living off of turkey sandwiches & peanut butter toast. mmm... I must be doing something right though because every time I test my blood sugar, it's completely within the normal range. BUT, I don't feel any better. Like right now, I feel like I'm going to pass out. I'm really hot & dizzy. I get this feeling about 4x a day. It sucks.

How far along?: 30 weeks!!!!!
How big is baby?: She weighs almost 3lbs & is about 17" long
Weight gain?: I haven't gained any from last week. So, I'm sitting at about 20lbs. Probably because I CAN'T EAT ANYTHING.
Stretch marks?: Well I found some on my boobs this week. But none on the tummy! Yay.
Maternity clothes?: Just bottoms. I live in dresses pretty much though.
Sleep?: Besides getting up once or twice to pee, I've been sleeping great!
Best moment this week?: Swimming at the in-law's yesterday. I felt weightless. It was niiice.
Food cravings?: French fries, doughnuts, chick-fil-a. Pretty much everything I can't have.


All the time & getting stronger.
Belly button?: non-existent. Seriously.
What I miss?: bad carbs!
Labor signs?: Nope! But maybe in.... 7 WEEKS!
What I'm looking forward to?: My first baby shower on the 18th :)
Milestone?: Reaching 30 WEEKS!!

Notice how my how is styled the same every. single. week? Well that's because I'm in a hair rut. It's at such a weird length that it looks bad when I wear it down & my roots are about 4" long. I'm getting it done next Wednesday, but I don't know what to do! I want something different. Blonder? Darker? Shorter? If you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them :)

30 Week Belly

ETA: I got my dress from Old Navy like 2 days ago! I'm glad you guys like! Feel free to copy me :)


  1. You look super cute! Sorry to hear about the GD, but glad you seem to have it under control.

    Where did you get that super cute dress? Love it!

  2. I agree! That dress is beautiful I'd love to know where you got it!

  3. Yes I agree... where is that dress from??? Sooooo cute!!! You are just beaming! I Know you don't feel the best but you look great!!! Yay for 30 weeks!! It's all downhill count from here! (in a good way of course!)

  4. I was the same way until about 36 weeks... completely terrified about what life would be like after the baby, but not so scared of the labor. Once I realized it really was coming soon though, I started to worry :o)

    The good news? Unless you are complete idiot, you will most likely be just fine when the baby comes. (That sounds really harsh, but I don't know how else to say it.) There is no right or wrong manual, so if your baby is fed, you don't let her sit in a wet diaper all day, and you show her you love her, it will all go just fine.

    (I really should be taking my own advice, I still worry if I'm doing this mom thing 'right'.)

  5. It will all come to you when the baby gets here, I know everyone says that but it is true, I was terrified of hurting my son the first few days but then I loosened up and it all came natural! You will be a great mommy!
    Also I am loving the dress and curious where it is from! haha!
    Have a good weekend!

  6. You look great love. I adore ALL your dresses. Seriously, Can I just live in your closet?

  7. super cute dress!

    don't worry, you will be a great mother, and mother's instincts really do kick in. just the fact that you're worried about it already makes you that much of a better mommy! :)

  8. It truely does pass by fast...and after you have her, youll barely remember what it was like being so big and feeling the kicks and hiccups...and the first month of your daughters life passes just as quickly. She will learn so much so quickly. Its a real miracle being a mother...having a daughter. My daughter is almost 7 weeks old...Im not sure how that happened. Lol. And, I discovered a tooth coming in...ALREADY.
    You look great. 10 more weeks and you get to hold your little girl. :D

  9. Laur! You are looking SO good I love it! I left you an award over at my blog! Hope you like it! Love ya!

  10. Trust me, I felt as clueless as you! I recommend reading The Girlfriends Guide to Pregnancy- I loved that book, tons of helpful hints, and not a bunch of medical jargon. Best of luck! :)

  11. Love your dress - you look fab! I had a similar freak out a couple weeks ago lol!
