30 Weeks!

I feel like the time is just flying by. I just realized it's been like 2 weeks since I posted and it feels like just a couple days. The past 2 weeks have been really busy with traveling to Arkansas for a baby shower, working a lot of days straight, getting a cold/sinus infection, having another baby shower and shopping/organizing/putting baby things together. I know I still have 10 weeks to go, but couple that with the fact that we'll be moving in about 4 months and that adds up to A LOT of stuff to do! I have tons of pics from both showers so I'll post some of those later this week.

I hope ya'll are doing well. I'll be catching up on all your blogs later today but please forgive my lack of comments.

30 Week Update:

How far along? 30 Weeks today. She should now weigh about 3lbs or more and be about 17 inches long.

Total weight gain: 28 lbs. I was hoping to only gain this much the entire pregnancy, but that's not how things are going.

Maternity clothes? Oh yeah for sure, don't know what I'd do without them. I'm not buying any more though since I have lots and only 10 weeks to go

Sleep: I have trouble falling asleep at night because I'll start thinking about everything with the baby/house/move and just can't seem to turn my brain off. She tends to wake me up around 6 each morning kicking and moving.

Best moment this week: yesterday Rich and I spent a few hours in her temporary room putting together her playard (pack and play basically, just not Graco brand) and sorting through all her things. There is a lot of pink in that room, love it!

Movement: I can definitely tell when she's awake or sleeping. When she's awake she is moving constantly. Her little butt is now all the way up to my ribs.

Gender: since there is a zebra print burb cloth and red tutu in her room...let's hope she's a girl!

Labor Signs: nope

Belly Button in or out? Still in

What I miss: those runs that seem almost effortless. I ran 2 miles this morning and it felt like 20.

Weekly Wisdom: You need special diaper rash cream for cloth diapers that won't cause build-up and residue that could in turn cause your diapers to leak.

I was in your neck of the woods this weekend! Had a race in Marion Francis National Forest and then hopped down to Charleston for a couple days. I thought about sending you a quick note, but I had no access to internet or computer the whole time I was down there. Great city, though - we had a blast!
