Feeling Huge Already??? (30 weeks)

Well I am 30 weeks pregnant and I am feeling huge. Baby A’s head is always resting on my hip bone when I lay down and Baby B’s head is digging into my rib cage so it makes sleeping less than comfortable. My multiple trips to the bathroom at night have started up again. I pee at least 3 times throughout the night if not more. This makes feeling like I got a solid night sleep a thing of the past. I know it will only get worse as I get further along in my pregnancy.

I went to the OBGYN today and found out that I am only measuring 4 weeks ahead, so that is not that bad. I was kind of hoping she would tell me that I was measuring more than that because I am starting to feel very uncomfortable. I am wondering how I am going to make it the full 40 weeks. The babies heart beats were 138 and 142 today- I still think they are boys, but I will not know until their birth day. While my doctor was checking me, she felt me having a contraction- yikes! I do notice my stomach getting hard every once in a while, but it is not painful so I do not pay close attention to it to be honest. Baby B is still breech, boo! I am still having faith that everything will work out and I will be able to have a vaginal delivery. I am reminded of Abraham when he took his son to the mountain to be sacrificed. Abraham had faith that God would deliver a way out, and at the last minute God did by providing a lamb to sacrifice instead of his son. So even if Baby B does not flip before delivery, I am confident that he/she will flip before it is his/her time to come out! I would still appreciate your prayers- asking God to flip baby B.

We have had a busy two weeks. Last weekend we went to Chris’s family’s farm, which was a lot of fun. Cooper had fun playing outside. This coming weekend we are heading to San Antonio for Chris’s uncle’s wedding. I just hope that all this traveling is not to much for me.

    I can relate… I’m starting to feel pretty huge myself and I’m only at 23 weeks. It always amazes me when you think you are big and then you just keep getting bigger. Like my hubby once told me… women’s bodies are amazing!

    Rebecca, I did not know you were pregnant again! I guess that is what happens when we don’t live in the same state anymore. Well congrats! Hope your pregnancy has been going well.

    Oh my goodness! It seems impossible that you could have noticeable grown much in just a couple of weeks, but you really do look bigger in this picture than in the 28-week picture! I really feel for you and the discomfort you are feeling, with so much time still to go. The discomfort of my last few months and weeks of pregnancy with Lee are still very vivid in my memory…and that would have been nothing compared to your current experience! Praying for God’s grace on you every day and a safe and natural delivery for both babies! Thanks for keeping us updated so well.
