This past week another great milestone was I hit 30 weeks pregnant. YAY! I can start counting down now. Counting down is so much better the end is nearing, the end is still the end of July. I am going to be miserable in July and probably grumpy in June. I have so so much packed into the rest of May it will fly in a blink. Good and bad because every second that happily passes quickly till I have a new baby is another second gone of my other babies lives. I do so much wish time would stop and I could have more of it with my precious children, even if that meat pausing pregnancy.
For now lets focus on 30 weeks!
The whole pregnancy has gone pretty quick. I am feeling well. Good days, bad days, today a sunburn day. I am busy as ever and baby is okay with it. I have heartburn all the time. A soda with me always, it helps. But has also helped me put on a lot of weight. I am at 167 pounds, OVER what I delivered at last time and still 10 weeks to go. Good thing my gym has babysitting.
Many things are harder. I can barley lift my little 25 pound princess. The babies do not fit on my lap. I am generally uncomfortable and am very tired of climbing swing sets and bleachers to retrieve kids. I don't have any specific craving but I am hungry all the time. Baby moves constantly, I love it and it reassuring. Evan thinks its funny and often touches my belly. Smiley and Faith have no idea that a baby is coming. They are to young to understand so I don't even try. The older boys are excited by more focused on themselves and what they have going on. However they do get disappointed that I do not take the on bike rides anymore. I will try my best to fit one in this week. Last time I did was at t he beginning of the month and I drove in the car with the windows down behind them. Does that even count?
I have bought almost nothing for this child. I have a lot of baby items all ready and should look at what I need clothes wise since Faith was born in March and this one will be in July. But having done this 4 other times I no how truly little you do need. I bought 1 pack of diapers. Ha! I know I will be making a trip to Sam's club soon. And I would love a side by side pink jogging stroller.
Doctors appointments are every two weeks but I always call and cancel. I find an excuse and push them three weeks apart. Baby is doing good heartbeat stays in the 140's and I have other things to do. If something were amiss I would call them.
Overall and thanks to God it is good. Let's keep counting down.
