[[30 Weeks]]

How far along: 30 weeks
Total weight gain: My scale says 134ish
Maternity clothes? Oh yeah.
Stretch marks? No, with the exception of the spot where my belly button ring was, there is some serious stretching to that poor little part of skin lol
Sleep: Waking up in the middle of the night still multiple times, and still hard to fall asleep, if its not restless legs, its the pressure on my belly, if its not that, its that I have to pee... never ending.
Best moment this week: Coming back to NC and seeing Joel <3 I have DEFINITELY missed him. And also getting back to church this weekend =] It was awesome, and I know I say this practically every week about how I swear God knows every single week what I need to hear and once again... he pulls out all the stops! This week Pastor Jason had talked a bit on that good ol phrase that I have said I can't stand "Do as I say, not as I do" he just worded it a little different, "You can teach what you know, but you can only reproduce who you are". So I hope and pray I can be a great example for little Faith so that she will want to be like her momma rather than learn what not to be...
Miss Anything? Well, family this week! Also all of our boys that just deployed :/
Movement: Yep!
Food cravings: Anything peanut butter. Still cereal and chocolate too. But this time I have been eating a little bit healthier cereal, honey bunches of oats... it has the word "oats" in it, so that makes it a little better right? ;]
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope
Labor Signs: Braxton hicks, all day, every day. We went for a little walk the other day cause it was absolutely beautiful outside and when we were coming back those contractions were terrible, it was actually kinda painful which I know is not a good sign if its painful. I think it was just a mixture of me having to pee and all that pressure on my bladder and not being able to sit down till we were home, so when we did get home I still was getting them but they faded. Its really hard to keep track of them, but I know I need to start paying more attention to timing them.
Symptoms: Still back pain, and that dang rib pain. but only on my right side, also weird that I have read it is pretty common for women to get this numb spot on their upper right abdomen but it is still unknown why that happens. I definitely feel like there is some sort of ripped something, whether that be ligaments or ab muscles or whatever, it hurts.
Belly Button in or out? Still just hanging out on the surface
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Well I have been absolutely happy until today when I had to deal with the naval hospital not giving me an appointment for another 5 weeks. Love it.
Looking forward to: Next ultrasound! Only wishing it was 4D again ;] And Faith's bedding!

Oh that husband of mine...
As he is picking me up off the couch.... "I can't believe how much baby weight..." stops mid sentence... "Wow I just dug a big hole...."
(You should have seen my face on that one lol)

Joel : Babe I like when we do teamwork around here... I just wish I could help you carry that baby (Cue the "awwww's" ;])

After being so frustrated with the naval hospital, Joel came home and I vented it all to him...
Joel: "Babe we don't need the hospital, Ill do my research and deliver this baby myself."
Me: "Haha no midwives or anything just us!"
Joel: "I don't need a midwife, I can only handle one wife!"

The basketball from the front.

We went to town on projects while I was home, these burp cloths are my FAVORITE!! I guess I shouldn't say "we"... it was more of my sister's doing all the hard work lol... I still need basic sewing 101.

And these onsies! I mean... common... to die for =] I know that it is going to be a pain to try to outfit a newborn so I wanted something that would be simple and cute so how bout adding some flowers to white onsies!

I failed to get a picture with Kenz, but I miss my sissys =[

Oh yes... these are all of the jeans I brought to AZ... wanna know where they are now... still in AZ. Im not getting any smaller people! lol

Before! My disaster when I unloaded the suitcases... 

After! Still a work in progress, just waiting on the bedding, curtains, and pillows from my amazing Grammy. Im sure I will change her dresser 5 more times, but when I get the bedding and stuff I think I will be able to finish her room up =] Apparently chevrons are really popular these days!

Joel and I picked up some things we needed from babies r us the other day and we both got to actually see what our stroller looks like, I got to see the car seat in person but not the whole thing with the stroller, I loveee it =]

I spy with my little eye.... If we don't know where Oakley is, its easy to figure it out... If I just cleaned the room and the bed is made he will no doubt always be right here =]
(P.S. I JUST ordered our wedding pictures to put in those frames.... took me long enough!)

Oh look what I found! Makes me SO curious to see what my daughter is going to look like!


  1. Baby girl already has more shoes than I do! Looks so cute Taylor! I'm so excited for you two it's getting so close! (: good luck with all your doctor issues! Miss you!

    1. Its insane right?? haha and that stock pile is ONLY going to get bigger! lol even her drawers are full! I have got so much newborn stuff that I am literally going to have to change her outfit 5 times a day in the first week! I sure hope I have a small baby lol Thank you! I cant believe how close we are now =] Miss you so much!
