Pregnancy Update // 30 Weeks

How far along?  30 weeks!
Total weight gain:  22 pounds.  It definitely feels strange going up in weight every week, but it's reassuring to know that Baby Faulkner is growing at a healthy pace.
Stretch marks?  No stretch marks yet!
Sleep:  Sleeping has remained to be difficult due to my enlarging baby bump.  But thankfully, I'm not one of those women who have difficulties sleeping through the baby kicking all night.  Her little movements don't hinder my sleep at all. :-)
Best moment this week:  Adding the finishing touches to the nursery, and watching my baby girl's endless movements. <3
Miss anything?  My energy.  The third trimester is very exhausting.
Symptoms:  Absent-mindedness, heartburn, bleeding gums, back pain, shortness of breath, itchiness, occasional nausea & headaches, and exhaustion from standing up for long bouts of time.
Movement:  ALL the time.
Food cravings:  Mandarin oranges.
Anything making you queasy or sick?  Nothing in particular, but I have experienced the occasional nausea throughout this trimester.
Looking forward to:  The baby showers generously being held for Baby Faulkner next month. :-)
 I pray 2016 is off to a great start for ya'll!

God Bless,


  1. You are such a gorgeous pregnant woman, Cryslyn! So happy all's going well. :-)

  2. I second Naomi. You're beautiful, Cryslyn! And I'm so glad all's going so well... :)

  3. So exciting! :D Mandarin oranges sound like a wonderful, healthy craving to have.

  4. You look beautiful! Happy third trimester! Almost there! ;-)

  5. You ladies are so sweet. . . thank you all for your precious comments! <3

  6. You do look lovely, Cryslyn. The symptoms do not sound very pleasant, but if you're craving mandarin oranges, Baby Faulkner must have good tastes!

    1. The symptoms definitely aren't fun, but it'll all be worth it when I'm holding this sweet girl in my arms. <3
      Thank you for your kind words. :-)
