30 weeks. huh?

sometimes, i really can't believe we are at this point.  call it pessimism, but after having a miscarriage, i was skeptical that this would ever happen.  i really have to remind myself, at times, that this is happening.  but i don't think i'm alone there.  all i know, is that i am so thankful that everything is healthy and we're right on track [i won't even knock on wood].

so, here we are...t h i r t y weeks.  10 [ish] weeks to go and i can't tell if i'm ready for this part to be over in 10 weeks or if i'm a wee nervous.  it's probably fair to say ...both, huh?

clockwise:  side view, mom wanted a front view, and my view looking down.
 inanimate comparison:  no longer a chinese cabbage, but a real cabbage.  ???

maternity clothes:  a necessity.

stretch marks:  still in the clear.  i'm going to tell myself that it's because i lather up with coco butter every night.  but...there are still 10 weeks to go.

sleep:  roll over, up to pee, roll over the other way...repeat.  honestly though, when i get comfy...i sleep pretty well!
best moment this week:  hitting 30 weeks.  and my first shower [which was really in week 29, but oh well] [see below].  also, we ordered a dresser!  pics of our work.in.progress nursery to come!

miss anything?:  i can't say that i do.

movement:  yes.  i've been trying to catch a cool video of my belly moving.  stay tuned.

cravings:  i just enjoy sweets... but that's nothing new.

sickness:  gone. 

gender:  50/50

labor signs:  maybe some braxton hicks.  like, one or two a day.  nothing painful.

symptoms:  ok [knock on wood] but the back pain has diminished during the day...for now.  i put heat on my back every night, so i like to think that has something to do with it.  or maybe baby has moved or shifted. 

belly button:  still in!  i thought for sure it would be out by now. 

wedding rings:  i'm down to just my engagement ring.

happy or moody?:  happy.

looking forward to:  the doctor again on thursday.  and lots of special guests this week, including my m o m whose coming in town for my second shower!!!!  ahhhh, yay!  i haven't seen her since christmas...i've put on some weight since then ;)

my work shower thrown by my [SPED] team.  homemade desserts and lots of fun gifts.  and the adorable banner made by a 1st grade teacher.  and!  my mother.in.law and sis.in.law came.  p.s. i've had my poor hair colored since the.  yikes!
