30 Week Pregnancy Update | Baby #2


Wow 30 weeks, just 10 more weeks to go which is absolutely crazy! It really feels like the countdown is on now; we should probably start getting more prepared haha. Baby boy is the size of a cucumber at almost 3lbs, and will be putting on 1/2 pound a week from now on apparently!

This week started lovely, the weather improved slightly so we got to enjoy the sun again (although it's swiftly left again haha). My bump is getting so big now my belly button can be seen through my clothes! My nephew had great fun pulling it and poking it, which I must admit makes me feel a bit sick haha. Indiana has also been loving her baby brother this week. She even ran up to me one day with the Doppler, popped it on my belly saying baby. It was unbelievably sweet and it makes me even more excited for them to meet.

Then on Friday my sciatica pain decided to come back with a vengeance! It's always down my right side, and leaves me limping if I'm out walking haha. I'm quite glad Indiana is still in her pram as leaning on it does give some relief when we're out.

The only other symptom I've been having for a while is pressure/pain in my bump. It's odd - it really feels like he's trying to escape out of my stomach, and I can always feel body parts if I touch my bump! I don't remember ever feeling Indiana this much so I'm not sure if it's because of my anterior placenta, whether he's bigger or if he's just in a different position! Any ideas?

We'll be in single figures next week! I will start thinking about my hospital bags, birth plan, etc in the next few weeks so look out for those posts. 


  1. I can't believe how fast it's going! I've been feeling a lot more painful movements in my bump this time too. I don't know if it's just because I'm more aware of everything this time round!

  2. I still can't believe you're 30 weeks! Feels like a couple of weeks ago you announced your pregnancy. I remeber thinking Osian was trying to escape, he was so active! X

  3. It won't be down to anterior placenta, I've had placenta in same place with both pregnancies. I didn't feel Tobey as much as I do Levi but my mums explained that it's because with a first pregnancy your body goes through all sorts and stretching etc where as second time it's already been stretched. I'm 25 weeks & my whole belly wobbles 😂

  4. Aww getting so close now! I have been feeling much less movements this time but have anterior placenta which I never had last time.

    Maybe it's boys, I could feel limbs all over the place when I was pregnant! By the end I could trace out whole arms and legs! hahah xx

  6. Eeek, not long now for us. How lovely that Indiana seems excited about her little brother too! I can't feel any body parts yet, but maybe that's a first time thing? I hope the pressure thing eases for you lovely xx

  7. The belly button thing made me chuckle but you're looking pretty fabulous :) wow the last 10 week stretch!! Z was a very wriggly baby and I could feel all sorts of limbs. This one seems to be a lot calmer compared to him.
