Bump Date: 30 Weeks

Back to mirror selfies for a while.  =(
How far along:
30 weeks

Size of baby:
Head of Cabbage
(He measured 3 lbs. 11 oz. at our appointment today.)

Maternity Clothes:
I can wear workout pants and some dresses, but the rest are maternity.

It's a BOY!!! 

Baby Boy's Name:
Oliver Gammill
Oliver- after my Great Grandmother Olive / Gammill (like camel with a 'G')- Andrew's mom's maiden name, as well as Andrew's middle name

Little man is very active these days and I love it.  He definitely has his active times, which don't go unnoticed. 
He loves to punch my bladder, which is surprisingly painful. Most of All the time it catches me off guard and may cause me to screech. (It's like he punches it with needles.) 
His night time movements make me wish I could just take him out and cuddle on him for a bit, then put him back to finish growing.
Bless his heart I feel like this kid has the hiccups all the time.  I honestly don't mind, because I get to feel him bounce around.  The other night he had them and I tried to capture my belly jumping when he would hiccup.  I think he was getting frustrated, because he had had them for a while by this time, and then he just went bananas.

Bathroom breaks are down to one at night unless I drink an excessive amount of water.  Another thing that decides the number of breaks I take is how much fun he's having on my bladder.  He really enjoys stretching and when he does it's directly on it.
 As I've said in previous posts, I'm pretty much a side sleeper now and a pillow between the legs is officially a must.

What I miss:
Sometimes I just want to lay on my tummy. Not really gunna happen.

Cravings: Oh's Cereal (thanks to my cousins Ben and Laura), Cocoa Pebbles, Maple & Brown Sugar Oatmeal (Mmmm...), pumpkin/squash anything (A friend made pumpkin bars at community groups Sunday and I may have had 2 and taken 4 home.), bean burritos (1st trimester craving is back)

Other Symptoms:
1- I've had some 1st trimester cravings and symptoms come back, one of which being pretty tired.
2- Hello reflux/heartburn. Can you say vurp? *Bleck!*
3- Braxton Hicks, I didn't really have these with Hads, so this is a new one.
4- Crazy dreams.  I had one last night that our family went on a beach trip with friends and someone offered to watch Oliver.  They kept him forever and gave him bottles and I was so devastated because he wouldn't nurse anymore.  I'm partially saying this as a warning incase I go on a trip with anyone that's reading this...  I WILL go momma bear on you. (Let me also note Oliver was still tiny in this dream, not a 5 year old desperately needing to be weaned.)
I've had others equally and more crazy, but this was the most recent.

Big moment this week:
Had an appointment today, he's looking good and still head down!
Measuring about the size his big sister did at 32 weeks.  I have a feeling he's gunna be a chunk and be alot like his daddy when it comes to eating.
I'm preparing myself for a lot of cuddle time on the couch/rocker feeding this kiddo.

Oliver also received his first gift with his name on it!  Another thanks to cousin Laura, Ben and Georgia.  =)

I'm also having my first shower this Sunday after church!!  Can't wait to celebrate this little boy!

Thanks for checkin' in!!
