Pregnancy Highlights-Week 30

Today is my first baby shower and I couldn't be more excited! My cousin Julie and my great-aunt Lois are hosting it, and so it's going to be my family and close girlfriends. I can't wait!

I really never thought I would get to this point. It always felt so out of reach. It's a little surreal to me that I am actually going to my 1st baby shower. Where did the time go? It seems like just yesterday I was neck deep in a place of hope and desperation, trying to wait so patiently for God to answer my prayers. And now, here I am. The morning of my baby shower, getting ready to celebrate these TWO blessings.

I had my weekly doctor's appointment on Thursday, and everything was just fine. My blood pressure is still good, and although I keep packing on the pounds, Dr. Wisebaker said I am doing amazingly well (she never says a thing about my weight, which is a good thing!). She did say that bedrest is definitely coming, probably within the next couple weeks.

So here are my Pregnancy Highlights for Week 30!

How Far Along: 30 Weeks

Total Weight Gain: 44lbs

Sleep: Ha, Ha!! Sleep is a long lost friend. I miss sleep. Good, solid, uninterrupted sleep.

Best Moment This Week: My baby shower today!

Gender: Two little girls.

>Movement: Yes! ALthough I think Baby B is trying to flip over. It feels like she is positioned right across my belly with her sister underneath her. When I get a BH contraction and my belly gets really hard, I swear you can see and feel her whole body!

Food Craving: Nerds Candy (I don't think you can really call this a food, though!)

What I Miss: Regular jeans, being able to sprawl out in bed, hot baths.

What I Am Looking Forward To: My showers, getting the cribs put together, my ultrasound on Tuesday.

Weekly Wisdom: ???

Symptoms: HUGE belly (it seriously gets stares wherever I go), achy back, swollen feet and fingers.
