Weeks 29-32 Squash

Baby’s energy is surging, thanks to the formation of white fat deposits beneath the skin. (Have those kicks and jabs to the ribs tipped you off yet?) Baby is also settling into sleep and waking cycles, though -- as you’ve also probably noticed -- they don’t necessarily coincide with your own. Also this month, all five senses are finally functional, and the brain and nervous system are going through major developments.

I guess I forgot to update.

My sister had an ultrasound at her doctor and her she is a he! She went back to the 3D imaging place after the doctors appointment and there it was plain as day! She returned all her girl stuff and got boy stuff. Too bad she already did some girl pages in her scrapbook! They are very excited though, she was wanting a boy.

30 week visit!

Went to the doctor today. I think my brain cells went out the window when I got there. I told them I had a doctors appointment with Dr. Wilson. The lady looked at me funny and looked through the papers. She eventually had to look me up in the computer. My doctor is Dr Warner. I was convinced she was the crazy one! :) She was pretty sympathetic, perhaps it happens more at the OBs office then a family doctor.

Everything went pretty well at the visit. I have gained between 20-23 pounds so far. Can't remember for sure. She must be okay with that since she didn't say anything. Only 10 more weeks so hopefully I don't gain a ton more. I am anemic so she told me to go buy an iron supplement. I forgot to get it today so I'll go out for it tomorrow. I wasn't too surprised since I have been denied to donate blood before because of anemia. She also had my blood drawn again today to check my thyriod level. She said since I'm on the low end of normal she wants to check it every month until I deliver.

I was complaining to her about how bad my hips are hurting. I was born with hip issues and I think that is part of the reason they are so sore. She told me to just hold out for 6 more weeks and then she would be fine with me going into labor. SIX MORE WEEKS!!!! Holy crap. Thanks for making the pregnant lady panic. I'm getting to the point that I want to meet her, but I'm not ready. There are still so many things I need to get and do before she comes. I packed her diaper bag for the hospital a couple days ago. I have started working on my bag. It seems surreal that she is actually coming.

Friends from home came down today. Shawn and his boyfriend Chad and Amanda and her friend Crystal came down. All of them and Megan, Jaden and I went to the Bodies Exhibit today and out to lunch downtown. It was so nice to hang out with them and the Exhibit was just as cool the second time.

I'm ready for bed and it's only 8:30! Avery sure is taking it out of me lately. As usual I'm hungry again so I think I'll look for some food first.

Love you all!

I can't sleep!!! Now that it's Sunday my pregnancy website tells me I only have 70 days to go.

PS. It's not helping the insomnia. :)

Back from South Carolina

We got back last night from South Carolina from Tiffani's boot camp graduation. It was so great to see her!! She is on her way to Houston right now for AIT. She got her phone back this morning so I was able to text her this morning. Justin came home last night. They both look so skinny! Justin will be here until after Christmas.

I will be 30 weeks pregnant tomorrow. I can't believe it. It seems to be going so fast! I have a doctors appointment on Tuesday. I think I will start every two weeks after that. It seems like she will be here so soon I need to start getting things around for her. I'm going to spend most of my day tomorrow doing that and packing to move. I close on my house on Wednesday. Hopefully we can get it fixed up to move in before Thanksgiving.

Love you all!

I'm in pain!

Little miss Avery Grace has decided that in my ribs is the most comfortable place for her too be. To bad it is the most uncomfortable place for me! She has been in my ribs for 2 days now. They are sore. :(

Second thoughts?

I have been having second thoughts about her bedding. I have one on my registry already but nothing has been purchased so far. I need you guys to vote!

This is the one I have on my registry right now.

This is the one I'm thinking about switching to.

I love them both! I can't decide! HELP ME!!!

No news is good news?

Nothing exciting to report. She's still in there. No further escape attempts as of now. She's growing a lot this week. I know this because she is being very quiet in there and I'm really tired.

Love you all!
