Today I hit 30 weeks! I can’t wait until Monday when I get to see my little boy again and get all his measurements. I started doing the kick counts in the evenings but some evenings I don’t bother because he pummels me like 20 times in 10 minutes. I love it! He drives me crazy with the occasional “lazy day” where he doesn’t move as much and I freak out all day and poke him a lot. I mean A LOT. My husband is like- are you poking him again??
The feet and leg swelling comes and goes. I got some fancy minty lotion at Destination Maternity that smells nice. My cat LOVES it and will lick the couch where I had my legs propped up after I leave. I thought the sticker said $12 but it rang up as $21 and since I’ve never suffered from dyslexia, I will have to blame the pregnancy brain on that one.
I took a Breastfeeding 101 class last night, which I thought was an hour class, but it turns out was 2 1/2 hours! I was like- what are they going to talk about for that long? Isn’t it just open mouth, insert boob? Well apparently there is more to it, and the class was really informative. I enjoyed all the info on the proper latch and how to tell if they are getting enough.
I swear the scale goes up every time I step on it. I think it’s possessed. I went through a Mc Donalds phase last month and gained too much weight so I’m eating way better this month but still gaining to the point where I fear my future clothing options. Hoping I don’t need a permanent new wardrobe.
I am totally excited about this weekend, which is Baby Shower time! With all the hoopla being made about it, friends flying in, arrangements being made and gifts arriving daily, I totally feel like we are planning a wedding instead! It went from “maybe 20 people will come” to a guest list of over 50 with a dinner the night before, a brunch and then the party. We were the first of our friends to get married, and now 13 years later, we are the last to have kids! We made it a family friendly event so everyone could come and bring the kids as well. It’s going to be quite a party 🙂
