30 Week Bumpdate

Thursday, September 20, 2018

It's almost baby time. This is all happening WAY too fast. For all 1034758 of you that are asking how I'm feeling, this post is for you - lol!! I'm feeling great actually. Once again, I've had such an easy pregnancy. I swear if I jinx myself last minute, I'm not ever getting pregnant again. 

So here we are, 30 weeks pregnant. The anxiety of labor/deliver has subsided, now I'm just at the point where I'm ready to tackle this head on and get her here safely. I don't care how she gets here or when, just as long as she's healthy. Reading others birth stories has REALLY helped me cope with what we are about to go through. I feel prepared emotionally and just really calm at the moment, which is super out of the ordinary for me. A question I'm getting a lot: Birth plan? that is to go with the flow. Epidural? the answer is abso-freakin-lutley.

Symptoms: heart burn, toe/foot cramps, back pain, out of breath, thirsty 24/7, no energy. 
The heart burn is UN-REAL. I’m part dragon at this point.  Basically don't eat anything past 5pm, but that is totally unrealistic. My appetite is through the roof. I wake up STARVING every morning. I'm getting up to pee 3x a night, tossing and turning from one side to the other to relieve hip pain. But in all honesty, it's really not that bad. 

Cravings: Hersheys, koolaid jammers, muffins, starbucks lattes, ramen noodles, basically anything unhealthy (which I'm sure contributes to my heart burn).

I’ve gotten to the point where I only shave what I can reach, so I have random patches of hair on my legs. I've also gotten to the point where I don't like anything touching my belly, so I walk around the house like this 9 x out of 10. Wearing pants on a good day. What are pants? 

I'm seeing the doctor every 2 weeks now. Travis has been attending my last couple appointments with me to hold my hand while these nurses poke the shit out of me. I passed the glucose test which is great. Everyone freaks out about that test, but there's nothing to it. The drink tastes like Pedialyte, which I'm used to from my days of being hungover (there were many). The worst part of the test was getting my blood drawn, which I'm getting used to. I got the tdap shot (for whooping cough) yesterday which I was stressed out about ALL DAY long leading up to - that was also nothing to worry about. Little prick and a little arm soreness today. I had white coat syndrome (fear of the doctors office) before pregnancy so all of these dr. visits and needles have been a huge adjustment for me. Luckily my doctor is great and so is his team. I'm feeling more comfortable each time I go- right now it's pretty repetitive. Is she moving? yes. Gush of fluids? no. Measurements, heart beat and we're usually out within 10-15 min.

We are starting to get the baby showers planned. The registry is pretty much complete which I will share in a later post. I have not packed my hospital bag, but that's coming soon as well. And lastly, we will be purchasing the car seat and stroller soon. This will all be shared in a post. I've done A LOT of research on all of this so I wanna' share! 

I'm taking a small break on the nursery d├ęcor for now. Waiting to see what we get at the shower before I buy anything else. I'll do a reveal closer to time but it’s not any sort of secret. 

Currently V conflicted on a glider/chair color for the nursery - If you follow me on insta, then you know all about that. Now that I don't drink wine, I have all this time to think about shit that doesn't matter...like chair colors. Pregnancy has been exciting but I get very bored easily. Needless to say, I can't wait to be able to drink wine again.

As much as I want her here now, I'm hoping these last 10 weeks slow down a little. Everything is falling in to place as it should, but I'm not ready for her to be out of my tummy where she is safe. In the meantime I'm going to try not to blink and cherish every moment and every movement. Of course I'll keep ya posted :)
