Baby Bump Monday…err, Wednesday!

It’s Wednesday! That usually doesn’t mean much around here, but hey, it’s been a busy week. Baby Bump Monday was postponed for today because I wanted to start the week off with a bang and bring you the All Things Pink giveaway. If you haven’t entered it yet, you absolutely should! You can repost the Instagram image once per day to increase your chances of winning. The giveaway ends July 24th so don’t miss out!

Baby bump chalkboard by The Vintage Modern Wife inspired by Little Baby Garvin. 30 weeks pregnant!First off- how do y’all like this picture? Mathew went above and beyond and bought me a Canon Rebel T3i DSLR as an early birthday gift (my birthday is tomorrow!) and all the fixin’s for it. I shot this on manual, and it’s not too bad! It actually shows off the TRUE color of our walls instead of a yellow tint that I was always trying to get out. I’m excited to try out my camera this week with fun pictures outside. I even got a 50mm lens for this bad boy! Addison is in trouble when she’s born because I’m going to be using this camera on her like CRAZY!

Ok… back to Baby Bump Monday…err, Wednesday!

How far along: 30 weeks! Like the chalkboard says, Addison is 3 lbs on the dot. She’s also head down, which is great because at our 28 week appointment she was transverse with her head on my right side and her legs on my left.
Gender: Addison is still a girl 😉
Maternity clothes: Still wearing mostly maternity clothes, but loving my pre-pregnancy stretchy pants and tanks. I have gotten some FABULOUS maternity dresses recently, and I can’t wait to take pictures and show them off to y’all in a couple weeks!
Stretch marks: Still have those 5 red dots on my hip. I’m combating them with tons of cocoa butter lotion and tummy butter. I think it’s helping!
Belly button in or out: Innie still! It’s sloooowly creeping to want to be flat, but I refuse it to be so!
Sleep:  It really depends on the night, but insomnia keeps me awake most nights. Either that or I toss and turn. I am on some new medicine though, and it makes me extremely tired about 2 hours after I take it, so it’s been helping me to fall asleep (even though that’s not what it’s for.)
Best moment this week: There hasn’t been anything monumental this week, but I’m just thankful for my medicine that makes me stop itching. I have Cholestasis, and it made me itch so badly that I couldn’t sleep. I was thrilled when I got my medicine to make me feel better.
Miss anything: A good nights’ rest!
Movement: Addison is going to be a dancer! I took this video of her yesterday and couldn’t believe how much my stomach looked like it was spazzing out. I wasn’t sure either what parts of her were where, but when we found out her legs are up and her head is down, it made SO much more sense that my stomach was moving this much. Her little legs are going crazy!

Cravings: Bagels and cream cheese. I may or may not have eaten 2 one morning. Yikes! They’re just soooo good.
Queasy or sick: I still get the occasional heartburn, but Zantac really has been helpful. I’m thankful I haven’t thrown up in about 2 weeks. SOOOO thankful.
Looking forward to: Our first baby shower this weekend! My mom and sisters are throwing me a shower that they’ve been talking about since late May. I can’t wait to see how it all turns out! I’ll make sure to take lots of pictures with my new camera 😉

Love this progression of baby bump pictures of The Vintage Modern Wife from 10 weeks pregnant to 30 weeks pregnant. I can't wait to see all the way to 40 weeks!For more Baby Bump Monday’s check out the blog every Monday (or the occasional Wednesday hahaha)!

  4. My hubby bought me a canon rebel right before Colton was born. I love it but I still need way more tips and practice on shooting in manual… Haven’t exactly mastered it yet. But, it looks like you did pretty good on shooting with it!
