30 weeks

How far along?: 30 weeks
Maternity clothes: Yep, maternity pants and tanks still in full force. Some of my workout shirts are even starting to get a little short so I may have to get a couple in a larger size.
Best moment this week: The weather is finally nice so Finn and I were able to go for a walk while Tom was teaching. 
Symptoms: I had sore shins a few times this week while running but no actually shin splints. Little man seems to like to stretch out all the time which is actually really painful and it happens all the time too but especially when I'm sitting so if I stand it's not too bad. 
Miss anything?: Nothing really.
Movement: Tons! 
Food cravings: Nothing in general this week. 
Have you started to show yet?: Oh yes.
Gender prediction: Little man 2! Although I've had a bunch of dreams the past few weeks where we have a girl. Part of me isn't 100% convinced it's a boy, my intuition has told me since the beginning it's a girl and I guess our tech who did the anatomy scan makes me feel uncertain since she wasn't particularly nice and barely took a half hour whereas Finn's took over 45mins. If I make it until 40 weeks I get another ultrasound to see if my fluid levels are low since they were with Finn so we'll find out then or at birth to be 100% sure!
Mood: Pretty much just exhausted and a little more frustrated too.
Looking forward to: A weekend at home - I really want to clean the house and declutter like crazy so I guess nesting is already starting to kick in. And in two weeks we're headed home and I'm having a girls lunch with my best friends who I haven;t seen in far too long and I feel like a giddy kid waiting for the day to come!


  1. Shannon you are amazing! I cannot imagine running at 20 weeks let along 30 weeks pregnant with a toddler at home! You are a wonder woman. Miss you guys and can't wait to meet your little man! xoxo

  2. Shannon you're beautiful! You've a great willpower. I suffered shin splints for almost 10 years. It was so painful experience. You need appropriate exercise program for this kind of problem. If you want you can find useful information at Good luck !
