It was crazy hair day at preschool. Ella picked the location of her ponytails. She wanted one on each side and one in the back. She had me redo the side ones because I put them higher than she wanted.

After school we went to the park.

 Snack time

Ella helped make tea.
We cooked pigs in a blanket.

Ella discovered climbing up on the cupboard handles.

30 Weeks (June 26)

I had a doctor appointment this week in the middle of the week and the doctor said I was measuring 30 weeks so just a little ahead. 

My fingers got swollen for the first time and my wedding rings wouldn't come off.

Ella loves taking my weekly pictures with me. She wants to push the button on the camera. She moves the camera a bit so some were angled before I rotated them.  She likes to just take them of me or she likes to run over and join in.
Last time I was at my parents house and the pictures i am slightly angled forward. I didn't have any this time so the comparisons are hard.
Size of baby: Large Cabbage, 15.7 inches long from head to heel. My app on my phone says the baby weighs about 3 pounds.

Total Weight Gain/Loss:  I gained 1.3 lbs this week for 25.4 lb gain overall. I forgot to take my weight measurement when I first woke up so I had already eaten breakfast. I'm surprised the gain was so little. 

Maternity Clothes:  Mostly maternity clothes. Workout pants, sleeping pants, and hoodies are not maternity.  More maternity clothes are getting too short. Maternity swimsuits are too short that I'm trying to buy. I guess I'm huge.

What I miss: Running/running without pain. Being able to easily bend over. I also miss lunch meat.

Symptoms: I'm getting bad pelvic pain now. I was only getting it when I run. But now even on days I don't exercise, I get it.

Best moment this week: Ella's birthday party

Looking forward to:  my shower, picking a name, Ella talking more to the baby (in my belly)

Exercise:  I ran on Monday and taught bootcamp on Thursday.

Same this time: I had my first dream where I was pregnant and then having a baby and last time I mentioned dreaming about having a baby. Overall weight gain is only .1 different than last time (even though for the past few weeks I was 20% higher this time.)

Different from last time: I just started complaining things were more difficult with a belly but I've been saying that on here fore awhile. I had swollen ankles last time. This time I haven't noticed any ankle swelling at all. I even look for it.  I have bad pelvic pain this time. Apparently Dave would wake me up last time because I was breathing so heavy. He either sleeps through it now or I breathe better.

Poly was just chilling on the bed!

Then Ella came along and tried to hug her.

It was hat day at preschool. Luckily I had a hat in the car.

We went to the park after school.

I took quite a few videos at the park. I compiled 32 of them!

We picked up Panera before getting Dave. Ella was a helper!

Ella loves soup and loves dipping bread in her soup.
