30 Weeks Bump Update!

I know I say this every week but seriously, is this pregnancy flying by to anyone else? How in the world am I already 30 weeks? Can time just slow down? I can't imagine how fast she's going to grow! 

Technically, I won't be 30 weeks until Saturday but I am going to go ahead and blog about it... Because let's be honest, I won't blog again until next week probably. 

So today at lunch time, I got a panicky feeling that I needed to go get our Christmas Tree. Today. Like I really, really wanted to go get it even though I know how absurd that sounds. I still think I need to go get it before it's too late. 

How far along?: 29 weeks and 5 days.

Size of the baby?: 17 inches & 3.1 pounds. Woah baby! That's big. The app says like a butternut squash.

Sleep?: Sleep is so-so. I want/ do take a nap almost every day and I think that messes up my night-time sleep because I toss and turn a lot at night now. So I'm going to TRY to not nap anymore. 

Best moment this week?: Last night Jonathan and I were laying in bed and Elouise started rolling... Not so much kicking as a roll (My new favorite feeling), and Jonathan reached over and felt her and got so excited. He said it was the coolest feeling and he was talking to her and she would roll or kick again. Such a sweet moment. 

Also, we decided on her middle name. 

Elouise Mae Scott. Ellie Mae. My little country bumpkin. I am in love.

Miss anything?: I really love pumpkin beer. So I'm jealous that everyone else gets to drink that... But not really missing it... Just more jealous! :)

Food cravings?: Japanese. All day err day. 

Morning Sickness?: None.

Gender?: Girl. 

Bed Rest?: None.

Limitations?: I am still exercising like normal but for some reason walking fast/jogging is becoming harder and harder. I think I use my ab muscles more than I thought during those exercises and I get a stabbing feeling on my right side, right on the side of my belly towards my pelvis. I'm going to ask my doctor about this... It hurts so much that I have to either stop walking or just slow way down. It's frustrating but I've found that I can still do the stair-master so that is my new BFF. Plus I sweat way more doing that than walking anyway so it's working. And then after 20 minutes of cardio I am lifting weights with Jonathan. I love working out with him. It makes the workout go by quickly because we can talk and laugh :) 

Pregnancy Symptoms?: Achy back when I sit or stand too long... A little acne but not too bad. Heart burn EVERY SINGLE TIME I eat pizza. I've decided it's not worth it anymore.

Wedding Rings?: Still on and loose.

Looking Forward to?: Fall weather!!! It is SLOWLY getting cooler and I can't wait. Definitely my favorite season! 

Please continue to pray for Harper and his mama, Lora. He is doing great but will be in the hospital for a while so any prayers are wonderful! 


  1. I cannot imagine being prego in summer being this far along so I know you have to be excited about cooler weather!

  2. Oh my, ELLIE MAE! I'm in love with that! I love country names, suppose it's got a bit to do with growing up down here. lol
    This pregnancy is flyyying by to me too, but girl you are rocking it! You look fabulous as always!

  3. I love the name and you look AMAZING!! I cannot imagine craving Japanese food, for some reason I hate it now and I used to love it :( all I want is Mexican food and cheese. Cravings are the strangest thing ever!

    My husband has only felt the baby move once but he got this huge smile on his face and it was while we were on vacation so that made it seem extra special to me.

  4. You look beautiful :) Wait a bit longer for the Christmas tree, crazy pregnant lady :) And I mean that in the nicest way possible :)

  5. I absolutely can not believe you're at 30 weeks already... she will be here so soon!! And Ellie Mae... Beyond precious!!
