First Pregnancy,  Motherhood

30 Weeks

Between little man laying sideways and my doctor expressing concern with my weight gain (he believes I haven’t gained enough even though I beg to differ) this week we were scheduled for an ultrasound to see how little man is doing. Despite the doctor’s concern, I have been convinced that little man is ahead of schedule. Perhaps it has been all the kicks to the ribs and pelvis at the same time or maybe it was just mother’s intuition, but I was convinced that I was growing a giant. So on Monday the Hubs and I went in for our ultrasound and after taking some measurements and letting us see the little man do cute things in 3D, the ultrasound tech told us that our little man is measuring TWO weeks ahead! That’s right, this mama isn’t gaining a ton of weight because little man is taking every calorie for himself. We were both overjoyed to know that even though he might be born 9+ pounds, at least he is healthy!

It is so crazy to see how far things have come in these last 30 weeks! I am certainly feeling like a whale these days but this picture still blows my mind. It’s amazing what the body can do!
