Yes, I am 30 weeks pregnant and kinda hoping to be pregnant for another 11 weeks. Rarely do you hear that someone wants to be pregnant for longer, but I am carrying a little guy and wouldn't mind if he decided to incubate a little longer than what my "Due Date Is."
The past couple of weeks have been a roller coaster for me. First I was told I wasn't gaining enough weight, then I was told I gained too much weight in a two week span, then I was told my belly was measuring big, then I only gained a pound, had an ultrasound to make sure I wasn't carrying a massive baby. It turns out that our baby boy is actually quite tiny, but perfectly healthy and my weigh gain is on the lower end and I am measuring about a week behind (which all makes perfect sense to me because I know my body). I have been instructed to eat more protein and to relax more. Anyone who knows me knows that eating more isn't an issue (especially when it's doctor's orders), but the relaxing more thing is definitely a challenge. Don't worry, I will listen to doctor's orders, but I'm going to be productive while lounging.
So where are we with getting things ready for baby? Well, the nursery is very close to done! I painted the dresser, Jared and I put the bookshelf together, Ryan and Jared built the crib, I've washed all his baby clothing through 6 months that we have so far, and I am working on accents! My sister is drawing some little animals for me to frame, I ordered 50 origami cranes for string and hang from the ceiling, the mattress has been ordered and will arrive this week. So far, we have made a lot of progress in the past two weeks and I am quite happy!! Now I need to craft and sew to get everything ready for this weekend so I can show it off to some girlfriends!
Baby boy has been super active lately and really showing off some moves! His movements are far less jerky and much more purposeful if that makes any sense. He really loves to hang out down low, like really low, and on my right side. I'm pretty sure my belly is lopsided 90% of the time. Oh and he is super cute!!!
Ryan had a golf dinner, so I threw on some pumps and had Jared take a picture of us. He's looking great and slimming down. I'm packing on the pounds he is dropping.
Oh and of course a little update on Lira and how she's adjusting. She's just fine and thinks this stroller is quite comfy!
