30 weeks

How far along? 30 Weeks
Maternity Clothes? Yes! I am still wearing regular shirts too... but in a bigger size :)
Stretch marks? Nope!
Sleep: Uhhh... not well! We are getting a new mattress this week and I am BEYOND hopeful that it will help. I just can't seem to get comfortable... esp with my back. I am surrounded with pillows, which has helped, but I am really hoping the new mattress does the trick!
Best moment this week: We got to see our baby girl this week again!!! I am actually glad she was stubborn last week so we could see her again! lol. She did a much better job this time and we got somegood pics. This time I drank a McDonald's sweet tea before I went and brought another one when she seemed to get comfy. LOL... I don't know if that is what made the difference or not... but it worked!
Have you told family and friends: Yes!
Miss Anything? Still sleeping on my stomach... and also tanning. I am proud of myself for lasting this long... but I think this coming weekend I am going to have an airbrush tanning done. I have never done this before, but I am super excited!! It will help me feel better about myself, so I am all for it :) This kind is very safe for the baby. I don't go in a booth or anything.. a lady does it!

Movement: Oh yes!! Sometimes I think she goes flips and cartwheels...!!!
Food Cravings: Chocolate pudding & water! I can't seem to be without water.. I am drinking like a fish!!! :)

Looking forward to: Getting the nursery and house ready for the baby!!! So much to do... I wil feel so much better when it is done!
We started our Prepared Childbirth classes at PRMC. The first class was good... but I think we will learn a lot more in the next 3 classes. We have off tomorrow for MLK's birthday... but start back up the following Monday. I am excited to learn more.... and of course, see Colby in the pregnancy suit!!!!

Best moment this week: Seeing our baby girl this Saturday with our family!!!!! It was wonderful. She is stubborn (like her father lol) so we get to go back this coming Saturday to try to get some better pics! We did get a few good ones that I will post at the bottom. We learned that she likes to open her eyes (yes you could see her doing this lol) ... she DOES have hair already (I was not surprised  bc of my heart burn lol)... she loves to snuggle with her hands close to her face... and is comfy in my tummy :) We went to a wonderful place called Wiggles & Giggles. The owner was wonderful and took extra time to get baby girl to cooperate and also deal with our big family! LOL I think we had 20 people in the room :) I can't wait to go back! I also bought an ADORABLE outfit from there that is a tutu with a ballerina top.. and a bear that has her heartneat inside :) What a wonderful day it was!

I passed my glucose test :) Soooooo thankful!!! My blood test did say I needed more iron... so I am now taking iron pills. No big deal... and I also expected this to happen. I am hoping the iron pills help me get some energy because I have been EXHAUSTED lately!
