30 weeks

30 weeks
Roxy Foxy HAD to join the picture this week

Baby is now the size of: A large head of cabbage, weighing in around 3 pounds
Total weight gain: 18-19 lbs
Maternity clothes: Maternity jeans and a few basic tees.
Sleep: Great....there were even a few nights when I didn't have to wake up to pee.  Victory for any pregnant lady.
Favorite meal this week: Hands down, Chipotle.  Our family's favorite spot to eat!  But my favorite dish we made was tilipia with our crispy potatoes.  Recipe below.
Cravings: With 2 days hitting 50 degrees, I was craving spring like crazy!  Cannot wait to trade winter coats and boots for hoodies and flats!
Exercise: Hit the gym 4 days, 40 min of running or elliptical.  After each run, I used the pull up machine and did squats till I fell over.  It was that aching but wonderful feeling.
Pregnancy aches & pains: None :)  Baby boy is moving so much more than last week.  Makes me so excited that he's prepping to move and groove outside of me soon.
Worst moment this week: Dropping Solis off at my MIL's for 48 hours.  That moment was really, really tough.  Solis was completely fine though.  She loves going to Grandma's.
Best moment this week: On the flip side, having 2 whole days to do whatever we wanted was glorious....not to mention the weather was mild!  Hubs and I got a lot of accomplished and being reunited with Solis made me feel complete again.
Looking forward to: My doctor's appt and talking more about my breeched boy.  And Solis and I are going on a date afterwards after our long weekend apart :)

Solis's princess snowgirl.  Aren't daddies the greatest?



Crispy Potatoes
Ingredients
potatoes-the number depends on how much your family eats
melted butter
salt, pepper, garlic powder

Directions
1. Cut your potatoes in half (if smaller) or in thirds.
2. Bring a pot of water to a boil and add in as many potatoes as you wish.  Cook until tender.
3. Line a cookie sheet with foil and spray with with non stick spray.
4. Place the potatoes on the cookie sheet and smash down with a fork until flat.
5. Brush each smashed potato with melted butter.
6. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
7. Bake at 375 degrees for 40 minutes (depends on your oven).  We like ours extra crispy so we usually broil the last few minutes.
