30 Weeks - Carpal Tunnel, Maternity Jeans Shortage, Motherhood Maternity CLOSED?!

How far along: 30 weeks, 0 days

Total weight gain: About 30 lbs. 

Maternity Clothes: Yep.  I've about worn my one pair of jeans to death and decided to go buy another pair over the weekend.  Only I found out that NO ONE HAS ANY MATERNITY JEANS! Want to know how to irritate a pregnant woman? Send her shopping where nothing fits and the stores don't keep maternity clothes in stock! Kohls had one, ONE pair of maternity capris.  Target had about 10 pairs of jeans, sizes 2, 4, and 18.  That's really helpful Target, thanks! So I break down and go to the mall to discover that none of the department stores have a maternity section and our ONE maternity store in the mall has closed down to make way for a  mattress store.  Are you kidding me?  So anyways, I went home and ordered a pair online and am crossing my fingers that they fit.  Do you know how hard it is to order maternity clothes without trying them on? Nothing fits you the way it did before pregnancy.  My hips have spread out so far that I can't even pull my fat jeans over them at this point, and Kim K's butt has nothing on me at the moment.  So wish me luck that the jeans I ordered fit me decently enough to get me through these last 10 months.  Okay, end rant.

Stretch Marks: I think I'm starting to see something around my belly button.  I've kicked the oil and lotion into high gear!

Sleep: Not good.  I'm having nightmares again.  I dreamed of zombies the other night and woke up very freaked out.  Oh and I'm dreaming that I will go into premature labor, which I think is a fairly common worry in the third trimester. 

Best moment this week:  Hmm.. Not sure if I had any great moment this week.  I seem to have lost all of my energy and motivation.  I make all of these big plans for the weekend and then I end up just laying on the couch.

Worst symptom(s) this week: RLS, carpal tunnel in my hands, swelling in my hands.  We have gone fishing a few times and my fingers swell up almost immediately.  It's very annoying.

Movement: Yep! I can tell he's getting bigger and running out of room.  I can feel him really low and high at the same time.

Food cravings:  Mexican food, blueberry waffles with tons of syrup, and orange juice! 

Anything making you queasy:  Nope. I seem to finally be good!

Have you started to show yet:  Yep. Here's a shot of 30 weeks:

Gender prediction:  It's a BOY! Grant James Martinez

Labor signs:  Too soon!

Belly Button:  In, but getting shallower.

Wedding Rings:  I gave up on my ring last week.  My fingers swell too easy and I'm scared it will get stuck.

Happy or Moody:  Moody.

Milestones:  No big milestones last week. 

Looking forward to: Our baby shower and finishing up the nursery.

  1. Pregnancy is soooooo common and there are no maternity jeans to be had!??? Grr! It just reinforces insecurities that pregnant women already have. BTW...I hope the jeans fit too...I love this picture. So elegant and I love seeing Grant grow bigger and bigger.
