30 Weeks: Weekend Bumpdates

I skipped a week, woops. Last week was the end of my 11-days straight work week, so I was kind of pooped. It was finished off with a three-day weekend, though, which is always fantastic.

These were both taken the same day, but I had to release the belly from the skirt since it feels better when it’s free and wild and unconstricted. The shorts are from Target and have been awesome. I can roll the belly covering part down when I don’t want anything on it.

This week I hit 30 weeks, which is surprising to me, being less than 10 weeks away from my due date. I still have a lot of stuff to do, but some of it I’m waiting on Greg to get back for (like pick a name…no big deal right, no need to freak out! I may freak out a tiny bit, but I do know what I like and have told him, just need to decide for sure when he gets here).

Last week at my doctor’s office, my OB asked me if people said anything about my bump being small and I told her a lot of people have mentioned it. I do not mind at all, and in my uniform people might not be able to tell. She said I have a really long torso, so I think baby has some room to move around in there.

I roll out of bed like a turtle when I get up to go pee at night, but besides that, the belly is a slightly compact size and hasn’t been causing me too much back pain or anything.

Baby is growing lots in this trimester:

Workouts are sporadic and I do them whenever I am feeling good and/or have the time. Today, I went for a walk and it went really well – no ab muscle pain this time, which has been off and on. Although it is HOT here and I didn’t stay out too long.

Every time I go for a walk, I admit I think of one of my favorite Buffy moments. I know there are other BtVS fans. I love Spike and Buffy.

I had a great accidental library haul the other day. I went in to drop off a book and try to find one more while I was waiting for one I stumbled upon all these. I’m reading Daughter of Smoke & Bone right now, and will hold my thoughts until the end but I will say I am really into it.

I dyed my hair this weekend, because my color seemed really golden to me and I wasn’t feeling the light color, anymore. I went for a darker, chocolate shade with Naturtint in light chestnut brown and really like it so far.

I had a fabulously relaxing and much-needed weekend, and I hope you’re off to a good week.

  1. I love the darker hair on you.
    I cant believe you have 10 weeks left. The time is FLYING!!!!
    I guess that makes sense with a long torso. More up & down area for movement … biology & physics in one 🙂 haha


  2. The bump is coming along! I have a long torso too and so carried small during both my pregnancies which people commented on a LOT. Kinda irritating after a while but honestly easier to live with than if I'd had a huge belly.
    Love your new dark hair!


  3. I love your hair! I also think your little baby bump is the cutest. I'm glad you're feeling ok and able to get some exercise! I would be going INSANE if I had to wait so long to settle on a name 🙂 Haha!


  4. Love the new color!!!!!!! I have the opposite problem of your tiny bump…I have a very very short torso and my bump has no where to go but out out out hahaha! Chris and I had a girls name before we found out but not a boys so I am glad it is a girl!!! Why are names so hard?!?! It is like the most important decision ever!

    Girl I have no clue how you are 30 weeks already?!?! Where has the time gone!!!


  5. I hate being outside in the heat too. Damn I need to move north. My husband and I work in the same office and have been taking 9am- 9:30 walks and it has just been disgustingly humid and hot. Ew. I love Buffy. And Spyyyke was my favorite. heheh I really loved some of the Spike/Joyce scenes. So many good lines. Strange ending to the series though.. that whole last season was kinda weird.. This is so funny since I hadn't seen any of your posts… until recently… but woohoo look at that bump! I love the pencil skirt. 🙂 XO – Alexandra

  6. i know i'm super behind on blog reading, but go you for working out, even if it's sporadic. i think i'd use the whole pregnancy to be lazy, which i know you shouldn't. i never watched buffy but that gif is funny and i want to. oh i can't wait to hear what you thought of those books, and you've probably finished daughter of smoke and bone by now but i hope you stayed in to it lol. your hair is so pretty! love the darker colour.
