30 weeks!

Oops I totally missed last week. Oh well, chalk it up to pregnancy brain.Things are moving along at a lightning pace these days, it seems. There is still so much to do, I don't know if we will get it all done. I need to interview Pediatricians, fill out Cord Blood paperwork, finish our Child Birth classes, two more baby showers and countless clothes to wash and put away. My wonderful, amazing, beautiful friend Tiffany, Hi Tiff, dropped off three huge bags of baby clothes yesterday. I only made it through one bag and it filled up 2 of my dresser drawers. The Captain was like "that's all from one bag! We won't have to buy any clothes". Men, so naive. He really thinks Momma won't be buying any baby clothes. It was so surreal folding little shirts and shorts and imagining what he will look like wearing those outfits. 

We had our 30 week check up yesterday and things are moving along perfectly. My fundal height for the last two appointments have been measuring one week ahead but they haven't said that I should be concerned about a big baby.

Baby P is the size of a Squash this month!

Best Moment of the week: Putting away baby clothes and putting finishing touches on the nursery. Feeling the baby get the hiccups, it's a weird sensation.

Epiphany of the week: Breathing techniques really do work as long as you keep your focus. Remind me I said that after my birth story is posted.

Entertaining question/comment of the week: This is from a couple of weeks ago but when I saw my 3 year old cousin he said "Can I see your baby?" Me "He's in my belly, you can't see him yet." Chase "Well then open it".

Obsessions: Figuring out what body part is sticking out and moving across my belly. It is a fun new game we like to play.

What I am most looking forward to this week: The next birthing class and cleaning the house for my baby shower in 2 weeks.

What I miss the most: Not really anything. I love being pregnant.

Symptoms: Swollen feet and ankles, braxton hicks contractions are starting.

Milestones: As baby's skin smoothes out, his brain just keeps getting more wrinkled. All those grooves and indentations increase surface area, meaning more room for that oh-so-essential brain tissue. He's also adding some brawn -- his grip is now strong enough to grasp a finger.  *Courtesy of

YAY! Welcome to the 30's! Even though there is a ton left to do (I too still need to find a pediatrician, nail down daycare, do the cord blood info ... ) it's so exciting that it's coming down the to the end!!!
