30 Weeks

This week marks the beginning of the countdown. I have ten weeks left and I could not be more excited to meet our little one! I have been busy getting things together for her room and I am trying not to think about all I have to do and my fast approaching deadline.

I started sewing her bedding this week while we were out of school due to tornadoes. I didn't have power for four days, but as soon as it came back on I got busy. I now know how to sew a fitted crib sheet and I have also finished the panels to the bed skirt with some major calculating help from my mother-in-law. Remember your algebra if you want to sew! Next up, bumper pads!

30 Weeks
Total weight gain: 18 pounds
She weighs about three pounds now and is the size of a head of cabbage.
She is moving a lot lower now than she has been. She is still moving on the right side, but she has started pushing down as well. I was a little worried that she felt so low, but I went to the doctor yesterday for a check up and she said that I am measuring on track and she probably only just feels low.

Speaking of doctor appointments, I had my last four week appointment yesterday. I now will go every two weeks for three more visits, then I will go once a week until she comes! Everything looked good yesterday and her heart was beating away at 140 bpm.

Another movement note (for my memory), she is either laughing or practicing her boxing moves or she has some serious hiccups because sometimes my whole stomach will start shaking. It is the weirdest feeling in the world. It only lasts a few seconds and isn't uncomfortable, I just wish I could see what she is doing in there!

Ben and I have a fun weekend coming up. My sister Ashlee is graduating from nursing school and we are making the trip down to Georgia for her pinning ceremony. I couldn't be more proud of her for graduating with honors while taking care of a husband and an extremely busy two year old. Go Ash!!
