30 Weeks

How far along: 30 Weeks
How big is the baby: Baby boy is the length of a bunch of green garlic (root to leaf)-15.7 inches (From now on out, this is just an average guess since at birth babies can vary so much in length.)
Weight gain: 29 pounds. Ergh. Gotta stop with the sweets. But I eat A LOT of vegetables!
Doctor/Medical/Body Stuff: Doc appointment today said everything is good!
Sleep: Yeah. Not so much. I feel like I've been kicked in the nether regions when I move around in bed.  
Movement: He has started doing more streeeetching where I can feel a firm appendage sticking out my stomach. I love to watch the rolls and movements of my belly!
Food/Aversions: Same old, same old.
What I miss: Just the same....getting up and down easily!
What I am looking forward to: My showers! My first one is in less than a month!
Baby Projects: Adam got a lot done in the closet this weekend. I was able to start washing and putting away clothes that were given to us. It is so fun to actually put baby stuff in the baby room! I keep going in the room just to look in the closet!
Pearls from the Preschool: One day last week there were some brothers in the office after school who were brought back on the bus. They were asking me if I had a car. I told them yes, but it was at home because I walked. Then they asked if I had kids at home and I said no, the only kid I had was the baby in my belly. I proceeded to stand over them to send a fax. About 30 seconds later one looked up at me with big eyes and asked, "Why'd ya eat it?" 
Oh! And This: Over the weekend I was at my annual ITHI (Illinois Teachers of Hard of Hearing and Deaf Individuals) conference in Springfield. I was worried Little Man would pound on my bladder in the middle of the breakout session that I was presenting, but he behaved and I was able to make it the whole hour without going!

Big pile of clothes my good friend Katie lent us that I put her initials on, washed, and hung in the closet!

Little Man hanging with me at my conference!
