Remember back when I was 20 weeks along and finally starting to show a little? I bought this really cute blue shirt for Easter and I remember thinking 'I will totally be able to wear this for the whole pregnancy!'.
Ten weeks later, ten weeks to go, and I'm not feeling very optimistic about the lifespan of that shirt.
30 Week Stats:
Weight Gain: Why do I always start with this? Honest truth - No idea. I have an appt. on the 8th.
Cravings: Stromboli. My mom's stromboli to be precise. Mom? You reading this? Luke NEEDS stromboli.
Movement: Oh yes. Mostly at night, I still love watching my belly pitch and roll while he cavorts madly inside.
Gender: It's a boy!
Sleep: Haha, well it's not great, but I am very grateful that Matt has summers off from work. He has graciously let me sleep in several times this week after I have spent the night uncomfortably awake. That's a huge blessing.
Labor Signs: Nope, and we'd like to keep it that way for a while!
Milestones: 30 weeks down, 10 (or so) to go!
So. That's that. 30 weeks along and, while I am uncomfortable to be sure, I have been trying to focus on what a blessing it is to be given the gift of another healthy baby!
We get asked pretty frequently what Jack thinks of the whole baby brother thing, and honestly? He doesn't get it yet. He calls my belly Luke, and he knows that the third bedroom is 'Luke's room' but I'm quite sure he is too young to process that there is a baby inside of me. In fact, on Sunday my mom let Jack pick a tomato from her plants, which he proceeded to carry around the house and refer to as 'baby Luke'.
No Sweet Jack, Mommy is NOT going to give birth to a tomato.
