Pregnancy 2 - Weekly Update: 30

This was written on time, but the oh-so-flattering picture was late (although this is better than you'd get if you showed up at our house unannounced - there'd be a lot more belly than that hanging out).

How far along? 30 weeks (Dec 2-8)

How much weight have you gained?  30 lb!! Yay! 
Any cravings? No cravings this week, but it was the last day of my Master Gardener class on Tuesday, and we did a potluck, so I got to feast on everything. And everything was good. I'm not finding much lately that I don't like. I've even eaten some olives, which I don't normally go for. 

What are you wearing? Pretty much anything when I'm around the house. I save the shirts that actually cover my stomach for outings but around the house it's normally just hanging out the bottom of whatever shirt I'm wearing. 

How are you feeling? Symptoms? It's definitely been a better week this week. We've been busy so I've been pretty tired still. The aches and pains are hanging around, but taking this new normal into consideration it's been a decent week.

Stretch marks? I think at least one is starting...

Belly button in or out? Out as always

Sleep? Has been okay. I wake up parched with a super dry nose even though we have a humidifier going full blast in our room - so that's annoying.

Best moment this week:  I think it was Saturday. We went out to cut down our Christmas tree from the forest and it was pretty idyllic. The weather was nice, the drive was pretty, the forest wasn't too crowded, and it was fun to meander around looking for the perfect tree. After we found it, we continued exploring the area and found some really great views (where my picture for the last post was taken). It was a fun day all-around. And it was so cozy and festive to get our decorations up. I sat in a chair and prepped ornaments with hooks while Tyler and Hazel hung them on the tree. Hazel kept trying to hang all of hers on the same branch because they were all friends, and some were married too. 

We also had a Dr. apt. on Monday and I'm always a little nervous for them, but all was good news. The girls are going fine and my cervix seems to be holding strong. I go back in at 32 weeks for the next growth scan and start going twice a week, every week from there on out. I also preregistered at the hospital this week and everyone I talked to was super nice. 

I also organized a meet-up with some other area twin moms, which was fun! I'm excited to have some people to talk to who are going through this same twin journey.  

Worst moment this week:  Preparing for Tyler to go out of town (Mentally. I didn't do anything physically, let's be real). I get nervous any time our family is separated, especially by great distances. And even extra when I'm super pregnant. But his parents are coming to hang out with me over the 1-2 days he is gone, so that will be nice! And he'll get to see my family while he is gone too!

Miss anything?  Time. I just feel like it's going soooooo fast. And the ability to breathe. I don't like having squished lungs. 

Movement? So much. Still a LOT at night. Sometimes it's even painful. They've also been getting the hiccups on occasion which reminds me of Hazel's pregnancy.  

Excited for anything? Looking forward to our CPR class and hospital tour next weekend. I feel like those are the last things I really want to do to feel prepared. Speaking of prepared, we got our third car seat this week and made sure they all fit. They did! Barely! And I started packing my hospital bag. So far there's flip-flops, lanolin, and chap stick... you know, the essentials. 

How’s dad-to-be? He took a dad bootcamp class through the hospital which was basically 'How to Take Care of a Baby 101," which is something he didn't get to do the first time around, but definitely felt like it should have been a bigger part of the class we did take. He even got a dad medal of honor token. 

How's sister-to-be? So full of energy. I wish I had even half her energy.

 ha ha ha! I know these are really awkward! :)
