30 Week Baby Bump Update
We got back from our holiday vacation in Utah with the snow just after New Years and now that we are home and I am 30 weeks pregnant, I feel like the countdown is on for this baby boy. I have gotten the nesting bug all of a sudden and want to clean and organize the entire house as I am trying to get Christmas all put away. I have started to go through Liam's old baby clothes to see what I can use again and making a list of what I need to get for this new baby. I have gotten the bassinet out to put in our room and it's making it all feel so real seeing that little bed for him. I can't wait for those newborn snuggles, there is nothing like it. I feel like I need to take advantage of this energy to get things done because I am feeling exhausted the rest of the time and I'm not sleeping great at night. I wake up atleast once to go to the bathroom and then to get water because I am can never quench my thirst. [which isn't good because I have to pee all the time and I can't hold it in at all - even while sneezing] And with my belly officially popped out now to a good round ball, I can hardly bend over to tie my shoes or take my boots off by myself. But I am so grateful for those baby kicks that keep me up and for him moving all around because then I know he's growing and doing ok inside me. I've had a couple of other weird symptoms like my right hand going numb after using some scissors all day for a craft project for my church and my varicose veins have come back with a vengeance looking all crazy on my legs. I never had those with Capri and they went away after I got them with Liam so hopefully they will this time too. But even with all of these weird things that come along with pregnancy, I'm grateful to experience the miracle of it and for what our bodies are capable of. And for a husband who will put up with me when my emotions are high. It truly is remarkable how your body knows how to grow and change to support a life inside of you and how it knows how to do these things on it's own. Now we just need to get through these last ten weeks and decide on a name for him so send any suggestions my way!
