29 and 30 weeks

week 29 picture (no update):


week 30:


Pregnancy Highlights:

How far along: 30 weeks

Size of baby: supposed to be 15.7 inches and 2.75 pounds… however the doctor thinks he is quite a bit bigger!

Maternity clothes: everything except for dresses, skirts, and stretchy waist pants is maternity now.

Gender: baby boy. Judah Scott Perkins.

Movement: It’s so funny to me… I may go hours without feeling him move.. and then all of a sudden he is all over the place!  I have definitely felt some little body parts sticking out that I believe to be feet.  And he tends to stay on my right side more.

Sleep: Could be better… waking up several times a night for potty breaks and to change positions.

What I miss: being able to move around with any sort of speed.  I have definitely slowed down lately.

Cravings:  Not sure if I would call it a craving, but I have been drinking more milk.  I have a glass almost every night before bed.

Aversions: I haven’t tried cooking chicken lately, but I don’t think it’s worth the risk! haha.  Nothing else has been making me sick though.

Symptoms: Back ache, heartburn, a little bit of swelling, belly getting realllllly round, belly button is completely flat and even pokes out a little at times.

Best moment this week: I went to an appointment with my new clinic in West Monroe and had an ultrasound!  Seeing my boy on that screen was too sweet.  I’ll post pics in a post coming up!
