This may be a long one… but with a surprise at the end!
30 Weeks! There is something very exciting about being in the 30’s. Perhaps because I expect Baby D to make an appearance during the 30’s (c’mon 39 weeks!!), but I’m ok if the little one wants to hold off until 40 weeks, too, I suppose 🙂
Ok, let’s get through the basics, because I have some fun stuff to share!
How I’m Feeling: Breathing is more difficult because my lungs are squished. Energy is harder to come by than it was in the 2nd trimester, but I’m hanging in there. I haven’t had any leg cramps recently and sleep is pretty good, despite the fact that it takes me 2 couch pillows, 1 bed pillow and my snoogle to set myself up for a good night’s sleep! 🙂
What I’m Eating: You’ve seen most of it! More of the same, and really making sure I’m getting in enough protein, as Baby D’s brain is in a growth spurt. My little one can now perceive information from all 5 senses! No strong cravings or aversions to report (how dull, right?).
Last night’s dinner: Panko-encrusted halibut, sweet potato, okra & tomatoes
How I’m Workin’ It: I’m staying consistent with the frequency, but some cardio sessions are now 35 minutes instead of 45-60. Once the belly starts aching, I listen! I opted to go for a swim yesterday = brilliant! I felt weightless for the first time in months! Oh, and I still love yoga! Say hello to the pregnant ninja!
The Fun Stuff!: We had a co-ed baby shower thrown in Baby D’s honor this past weekend by our wonderful group of Charlotte friends! We had a blast! There were pink and blue drinks to choose from:
A super cute baby (the best time to get baby fever? When you have one on the way! I love this little one!)
And lastly, I know, I’m a little long winded today, but I must share some amazing pictures!! Hubbs and I had the opportunity to get a sneak peak at Baby D!! We had an incredible experience at Lake Norman Imaging and spent 45 minutes staring at our miracle, watching him/her yawn, roll over, and play with his/her hands. It was the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen and I can NOT wait to hold Baby D in my arms…
please say hello to my sweet baby!
Mid-yawn (yawns were our favorite!)
Check out those chubby cheeks and full lips!
Not liking the sound of jiggling pennies that Roxanne was using to try and make him/her move:
And last, but not least, someone has a silly personality, just like mom & dad, and decided to stick her/his little tongue out at us 🙂
Oh I’m just giddy over these pictures!! Thank you for indulging my instinctual mommy-bragging and have a fabulous Thursday!
