30 Week Bump Update

*I was 30 weeks at the time I wrote this post, but now I’m at 32 weeks so I have some catching up to do! Nothing much has changed minus her size (which is currently at the size of a cabbage), and that my back soreness has only increased..we are down to a single digit countdown with only 8 more weeks to go until her due date and 4 more weeks of work until I take maternity leave!Β

So cue my unintentional and unplanned blogging break, which lasted roughly 6 months.
