How far along? 30 weeks and 2 days! Baby is the size of: Cucumber Sleep: Not so much. :/ Turning is a challenge so I wake up a lot throughout the night. I am trying to make the best of it and get to bed early to help compensate. Rob and I ordered a Sleep Number bed (we have been wanting one for awhile now) in a king to accomodate our growing family. It get’s delivered on Friday and we couldn’t be more excited. I am hoping the extra space and ability to make my side soft (my number was 35) will alleviate some of the aches and pains.
Best moment this week: Again, so many to choose from! This weekend my parents, Tim and Brian came to help with the Meyer Home Tetris Game. We moved around several rooms in the house. We now have a guest room, nursery and the basement is going to serve as our den, art room/office and general hang out area. The boys got everything moved so quickly that they were also able to put together all of the IKEA furniture in the basement. Mom and I finished making the BBQ dinner Rob had started with all the fixings for dinner!
Tuesday the painters came and painted the guest room and nursery. Rob picked me up from work and I sat on the glider while he put together the crib. Notice that awesome color on the walls?!?!
The crib hadn’t been put together for all of five minutes before both kitties were in the room sniffing the crib, crawling underneath and looking through the spindles trying to figure out how they were going to get inside. We did catch them on camera but I will have to add those pictures later. Miss Anything? I am starting to miss the ability to walk around normal and be able to bend over and pick things up. I have adapted throughout the last few months but I still feel a little silly when it takes me 5 minutes to walk semi normal after sitting down for awhile. I also had to put away my wedding rings this week which was SO sad. I was doing so well but there is not way I can keep them on anymore :/
Movement: Still not able to get a pattern down but Peanut likes when I am laying propped up on my back at night and when I lay on my left side with my Snoogle close to Rob. I think Peanut knows when it’s Rob or I touching my belly because we always get a response.
Food cravings: Well, Sunday we took my parents to our favorite Southern place for lunch and I had fried pickles and stuffed french toast. :o)
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing at the moment.
Symptoms: Heartburn/acid reflux, RLP and the newest unwelcome symptom of swelling hands and feet. Last week when we went to our first birthing class
Looking forward to: We are also going home to NJ this weekend to celebrate Peanut with the Ungemach family.
Your belly’s increasing size is a definite clue that your baby is getting bigger every day, weighing in at over three pounds now (he’ll be packing on the weight at a rate of half a pound per week for the next seven weeks). Also growing daily is his brain, which is actually starting to look like the real thing with those characteristic grooves and wrinkles. And now that your little genius can regulate his own body temperature and turn up the heat, he’ll start shedding lanugo, the downy body hair that’s been keeping him warm up until now.
