30 Week Baby Bump!

Yikes! I can't believe I'm 30 weeks already. This pregnancy is flying by. I missed my 28 week bump update, but here is the 30 week stats. Overall I've been feeling pretty great. My energy level has been good and the sciatic nerve pain went away. I still feel it, but just randomly if I happen to bend over. 

How far along? As of today 30 weeks 3 days
Total weight gain: Up 19 lbs. Overall (body wise, not the bump) I look smaller at this point than I did last year pregnant with Layla. Honestly I haven't been eating as much as I should. I have been busy with the girls this summer and am on my feet most of the day. I eat breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert but haven't been snacking as much as I should. Sometimes I have to rush through lunch too.
Maternity clothes? Yes some. I've been able to get away without using a belly band this time. I've been using a hair tie to hold my shorts and pants together or a stretchy long the one I'm wearing above in the picture. By the way, I bought those shorts a few weeks ago at Kohl's and I just love them. They are sooo comfortable and they had other cute colors as well. I sized up to a 3 in these.
Stretch marks? No new ones this pregnancy. Yay, but I'm not out of the woods yet. We'll see if any damage was done once I give birth.
Sleep: It's been pretty good except I do have to get up at least once to use the restroom. During the day it feels like I'm in the restroom all the time!
Best moment this week: It's been a great week. My body has felt pretty good and it's been an exciting week for me.
Miss Anything? I miss being out of the bathroom for extended periods of time.
Movement: Definitely!
Food cravings: For the past month I haven't gotten any cravings. Then again I never really get cravings with my pregnancies. I did have them during the first trimester though.
Food aversions: Fruit. I am making an effort to have some daily now though. I've been bad about it lately.
Boy or girl: Girl!
Labor Signs: No and I hope they stay away till 40 weeks. I'm still scared about 2 under 2.
Symptoms: Charlie horses in my calfs when I wake up. I hate when I get them and I always wake up H from writhing around in pain.  
Belly Button in or out? It's not as pronounced as it was. I guess because my belly is still growing and just stretching it out.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Looking forward to: Cooler weather.

Before I go I'm going to talk about my hair for a minute. First world problems, but boo that I have to get it dyed again already. I think the last time I went was in June. Pregnancy makes your hair grow fast so I shouldn't be too surprised. I'm at least happy that I finally found a new hair colorist that is much closer, charges less, does a great job, and I happened to go to school with her. I could keep on growing it out but I had the worst roots during my last labor and I vowed it wasn't going to happen again. Seriously, it was bad and I have pictures to prove it.

{All the flyaways are because I teased it}
