30 Weeks Pregnant

I am now 30 weeks, which means I am three quarters of the way through this journey and I am starting to get asked very often if I am getting fed up with being pregnant.  I am quite honestly one of those people that enjoys pregnancy though, and as much as I cannot wait to meet my little baby, I am in no rush to do so!  Every morning I wake up and admire my bump and I love feeling the little wriggler kicking away.

Here is the 30 week bump:

On the Inside

Things may be getting more cramped and sometimes Squish's movements are getting quite strong now.  It can feel like he is trying to break out at times but luckily this is mostly in the evenings when I can just lie down and give him the space to wriggle.  During the day the movements are much more muted, but getting harder to mistake.  I still have no cravings or heartburn but after a long day on my feet and a little rest, I do struggle to get back up again and sometimes have tummy pains.  I think this may be a sign of overdoing it but I am so used to my active lifestyle I am struggling to slow down at all.

I am starting to feel much more connected to the baby and spending more time with my hands on my tummy just feeling him kick away.  I have also started planning his room and looking for the perfect material to make his crib bumper.  I am still nowhere near ready for his arrival, but entering the thirties means I am thinking about it more.  Once Christmas is out the way, hopefully I will be a bit more organised!

On the Outside

I feel like bump has not really grown much recently, and it is slightly smaller than when I was pregnant the first time around.  I have the midwife next week, so I can find out just how the little one is measuring.  The bump is definitely a different shape to last time as Squish is still lying across and so pushing out at the sides.  This means that my bump is not as neat as last time, but I still think it looks like a typical 'boy bump'.  I do think it looks very low already though so let's hope baby is not getting ready for an early appearance!

I still don't think Dylan understands much but he is starting to show an interest in my bump, and has been giving it a few cuddles recently too.  I know it is going to be a complete shock to him when the little one arrives, so if I can help him understand any part of it then I will keep trying.

Next update will be after Christmas now and I can only imagine bump will be twice the size with all the Christmas dinner and yule log I plan on munching! 


  1. I went to the midwife yesterday and was told I am now measuring normally- however I am a little dubious as obviously different people can measure your tummy differently!

    I cant believe we are now in the 30's! I also love my bump and being pregnant and will miss it, but can't wait to meet my little lady! x

  2. wow your bump is smaller than last time? I feel really tiny but I think it's because I have put weight on everywhere else and you are so slim. I am measuring small again and I am sitting very low so absolutely paranoid and stressed this little one is coming early again! Really need to pack my hospital bag! Can't believe how close we all are now! I am so pleased you are having a good pregnancy... I am the Victor Meldrew of pregnant women at the minute! lol! Mine has been so hard and I am having one issue after another both with me and my body luck in general. x

  3. Exciting! I loved being pregnant but with my daughter being two weeks overdue I got fed up and was desperate to meet her. That was almost three years ago now! Hope your appointment goes well x

  4. I can't wait to be 30 weeks, it's exciting once the weeks are into single figures. You have such a perfect little bump and are looking fab! x

  5. Wow 30 weeks, last long haul then, your bump looks lovely and sounds like your pregnancy is treating you well which sounds great with an active toddler. Hope the last trimester is good to you too and you have a lovely Christmas!
