29 & 30 Weeks Update

30 Weeks | I couldn't resist this buttercup bunny spiral toy from Mothercare. So cute!
Moving house at 29/30 weeks pregnant is no fun and although I wasn't involved in the heavy lifting process, I still had to pack and unpack where I wanted everything. As a result, I've been tired non-stop ever since. I've now moved back to Oxfordshire, you may remember I was here last year as we had to move closer to my husbands military base. I love the area, it's so beautiful.

How far along? 30 weeks + 6 days. 31 weeks tomorrow - eek!
Total weight gain: 11.7lbs.
Maternity clothes? No new ones, I did buy a few H&M tops in the non-maternity section though that should keep me going for a few weeks and postpartum.
Stretch marks? Even more, I can't keep up!
Sleep: Pretty terrible, I've had severe pelvic pain on my right-hand side alongside baby's extremely active movements in the ribs and various other places, it really disturbs my sleep. :(
Best moment this week: Starting on baby girl's nursery and washing her tiny, cute little clothes!
Miss anything? Not having hayfever right now! Not being able to take medication is killing me. Having uninterrupted sleep wouldn't go amiss either.
Freshly washed and ironed baby grows :) | A sneak peek at her beautiful cot
Food cravings: Sweet things still, nothing new.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope.
Gender: Girl!
Labour signs: I'm still unsure if what I've been experiencing is Braxton Hicks. It's difficult to tell as I can feel her back really high up a lot when I stand up quickly.
Symptoms: Pelvic pain, being out of breath easily and the generic waddling while I walk if that counts haha.
Belly button in or out? Out.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy!
Looking forward to: Hearing about her update at the midwife tomorrow and baby's pram and car seat arrive today! :)

These updates just keep whizzing around. My bump and boobs are even bigger now and they're way too heavy for me to carry comfortably, I really don't know how I'm going to cope in weeks to come! 

I've been pretty active on Instagram and Pinterest lately so if you're looking for more sneak peeks into the nursery, as well as house and baby clothes, head over to those social media channels in between updates!
