bump - 29 & 30 weeks!

This pregnancy is flying by!  I am actually 31 weeks as I type this.  She will be here before I know it!

The other weekend Matt and I went to our childbirth class from 9-3. We were both on the fence about going.  I am not a birth plan kind of person but I am really glad we went.  I learned all sorts of things I never even thought about....like when to go to the hospital.  I still don't feel ready to have a baby yet, but have a better understanding of the process.  Also, the food at our hospital is actually good so Matt is happy about that!  Some people asked awful questions and the couple in front of us were taking crazy notes - like pages and pages.  The worst question was from a guy who asked if the umbilical cord crunches when you cut it. He didn't want to pass out...lucky for him it doesn't.  The breathing exercises were extra lame.  I think if you don't exercise or if you haven't taken a yoga class then maybe you learned something.  I am curious what kind of person I will be during labor.  The teacher said she had a patient who actually sat in the dark on the birthing ball and didn't want anyone talking or touching her....I feel like this might be me.  The only terrifying thing was this image in this book they passed out that shows you to scale what your cervix looks like each centimeter dilated. I almost lost my breakfast (biscuits and gravy from the cafeteria which was awesome!) but instead decided to text a picture of it my friend who is expecting, Michael, telling her that this is what your vajayjay will look like.  She hates me.
30 weeks 2 days

Total Weight Gain:  I was up 24 lbs at my 29 weeks appointment.  Crazy to me....I can really feel a difference carrying around that weight too.  I caught myself leaning on something while waiting in a line the other day.  Wtf.

Maternity Clothes:  I only wear maternity.  I prefer to wear dresses too - the waist on some clothes can be uncomfortable. 

Stretch Marks:  Not yet!!

Sleep:  I wake up all the time now usually for potty breaks.  I am wanting to take naps more too.

Best Moment of the Week:  Our babymoon!  I will blog about that next.  It was so nice to just spend time with Matt with ZERO plans. 

Miss Anything:  Belly button - it is like halfway out and weird looking.  I miss being active.  I can barely bend over anymore...putting on shoes is awful.

Movement:  She is moving so much it is almost painful!  Cool out little lady!  I was sleeping one night and Matt couldn't fall asleep because he could feel her moving through the bed.

Food Cravings:  Not really?  I have been craving meat lately....like a PB&J for lunch doesn't cut it.

Anything Making you Queasy or Sick:  I had eggs on a salad the other day and loved it!  The idea of eggs for breakfast or breakfast meats stil bothers me. 

Symptoms:  Pregnancy brain, sick belly button, feeling obese, and sometimes I get dizzy.  Honestly, it has been a great pregnancy.  I have been very lucky!

Exercise:  Week 29 - ran 3x @ 2.4.  Week 30 - ran 2x @ 2.4 and did the elliptical for 25 min at the hotel.  That elliptical was a legitimate workout.  I am one of those people who don't count elliptical or walking as working out...until now!  I was trying to explain how much more work it is now to Matt by basically saying imagine going on walk and holding a small child.  He changes it in his head to deli meat.  When you talk about weight he thinks of pounds of deli meat.  I find that hilarious because I know when the Doctor said that I have put on 24 lbs that 24 bags of deli meat stacked went through his head.

Happy or Moody:  Happy!

Looking forward to:  Finishing the nursery!
