Baby # 3 Update: 7 Months

Today’s Date: October 31, 2015


Due Date: January 9, 2016

How far along: 30 weeks
Total weight gain: Maintaining the same amount of weight. He is still growing but I’m not gaining any more weight. So hopefully that means I’m just losing any extra that I had. 
Maternity clothes: Yes. I’m excited to be pulling out my cool weather clothes. 
Stretch marks: None 
Sleep: Not enough. Desperately wishing I got more. 
Best moment of this week: We had a 4D ultrasound with Baby M. I loved seeing his chubby cheeks. I can’t wait to see them in a few months when he is with us. 

Miss anything: Being able to sleep on my stomach. I’m starting to not enjoy sleeping on my side as well. Baby M hates when I sleep on my sides now and often times kicks constantly until I move. 
Movement: He kicks a lot. I love feeling his little kicks. The girls and Joel do too. 
Food cravings: My sweet tooth has kicked up. Of course just in time for the holidays. 
Anything making you queasy or sick: No, but I cannot stand the smell of raw meat. 
Have you started to show yet: Yes
Gender: Male
Labor signs: None
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding rings on or off: On most of the time 
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy
Looking forward to: Having a quiet holiday season at home. Only 10 weeks left until we meet our baby boy. 

I failed the one hour glucose test this past week. I will have another test this next week that is 3 hours long. I’m crossing my fingers and saying some prayers that Gestational Diabetes and insulin injections are not in my near future. See an update on this in our 8 month update.
