30 Week Pregnancy Update (Bump Shot)


Once again I can't believe I am sat here writing my 30 week pregnancy update, it seems like only a couple of weeks ago I was posting my 20 week update. 
Only 10 weeks to go until we meet our princess and we couldn't be more excited! 

1. How many months pregnant are you?
I am 30 weeks which is approximately 8 months apparently?

2. Do you know the sex of the baby?
Yes, we found out at 16 weeks and we're having a girl.

3. Do you want more children?
I definitely don't want any until this little one is at school because due to my Hyperemesis Gravidarum it is likely it would occur with other pregnancies and I am barely able to function when im poorly, let alone look after a little baby too.

4. What’s been your biggest craving?
I haven't really had many cravings although I do find myself eating a lot of sweets which I never usually do.

5.What’s been the best part of being pregnant?

Growing our little human and feeling her move.

6. What’s been the worst part of being pregnant?
The sickness and not being able to work since early on in the pregnancy.

7. Do you have any names picked out?
Yes we do but it's a secret!

8. Who will be with you during labor?
My partner.

9. Do you have a birth plan?
I haven't yet spoken to my midwife about my birth plan although I believe we do so in my next appointment (next week) 
At the beginning of the pregnancy I was set on having a water birth with just gas and air although now I am leaning towards wanting an epidural but its impossible to know how you will cope with the pain until it happens.

10. Will you record your labor?
I wont be, no.

11. Natural or medicated birth?
Medicated, if gas and air counts?

12. Are you scared about labor?
To be quite honest I have been fairly 'chilled' out about the thought of labour until the last few weeks when I've been experiencing Braxton Hicks. I am beginning to get more and more nervous & scared as the weeks go on.

13. What do you most look forward to after pregnancy?
Having my body back -  Now as 'bad' as that may sound these last 9 months have been very difficult for me, I have experienced things that I could never of imagined and it has changed my life. Of course I can't wait to meet our baby too!

14. Will you breastfeed?

I have decided to bottle feed from birth.

15. Do you plan to work or be a stay at home mom?
I will be a stay at home mum and work the odd days when I can.

16. Will you make your own baby food?
When it comes to weaning then yes although I will also be buying baby food from supermarkets for practical reasons.

17. Do you have any nursery ideas/themes?
I actually won't be having a nursery due to our current living situation although I will put some photos below of nurseries that I do like! 

So here's to the next 10 weeks, I have a very busy few weeks with various things such as my baby shower, midwife appointments and of course the final preparations for our baby. I will be posting updates on Instagram and blog posts when I can.

Until next time,

Bump shot at 30 weeks.
