Gluten Free Bumpdate | Week 30

How far along? 30 week / 31 when this posts
Total weight gain: My birthday week paid off, I was up 3 lbs in 2 weeks at my last doctors appointment :) 
Maternity clothes? Oh yes.
Stretch marks? Still none!
Sleep: Absolutely terrible! I feel like every week I complain, but this week was really the worst. I'm not getting to sleep until at least midnight, and then I'm up as early at 3am.
Best moment this week: Confirmation that I do not have gestational diabetes! My doctor rang to tell me, and with everything else he has not rang unless there was an issue and just reviewed at my appointment. He did call to tell me, and I was terrified he was ringing to tell me I had GD. I was absolutely delighted when he informed me of the good news! Making room for Bricklet - we sorted out at least a bit of closet so his things aren't in a duffle bag in my sitting room. An online shopping binge at Saks and Bloomingdales totally attributed to this. Also, non-pregnancy related, my husband and I did our Christmas gift exchange this weekend as we'll be travelling over the holidays and he absolutely spoiled me with awesome and beautiful gifts. 
Miss anything? Feeling rested upon waking up. Copious amounts of coffee instead of just the one cup.
Movement: Still lots! He rolls quite a bit still and lots of nudges. The hard kicks have subsided (I don't miss those - they somethings really hurt!).
Food cravings: Nope, once again I'm very dull and if anything the opposite - I don't have much of an appetite.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Acid reflux continues to cause me trouble.
Gender: Still a boy as far as we know!
Labor signs: Nope!
Symptoms: Acid reflux, lack of sleeping, sore belly / skin from growing, nausea, exhaustion, and I would say nesting is starting to kick in as well. Happily, my eczema is settling down!
Belly button in or out? Still in!
Wedding rings on or off? On!
Happy or moody most of the time: A mix this week. Being tired does not help my mood. While I'm really excited to spend this Christmas with my husband's side of the family and see our nephews and niece, I'm missing my family and am really sad about missing our new niece's first Christmas.
What are you looking forward to? Not traveling. Is that an appropriate answer? I'm embarking on my last trip and cannot wait to not have to pack or unpack a bag or deal with flying for several weeks at least! It also occurred to me how close we are getting to Bricklet's arrival. He could be here in 6 weeks (5 weeks really since I write these on the last day of the week to recap that week as it was). It's crazy! I have a massive to do list both at work and at home, but I'm excited to work through it and meet this little guy!
