baby number #2 update

I haven’t mentioned much about my growing bump in a while so I figured that I should give a little update…

Last Saturday we hit the 30 week mark; which means that I have about 10 weeks left until we get to meet this little guy.  Yes, you read correctly we have almost hit the single digits- which is SO hard to believe in my opinion.  I know that I have said this before but this pregnancy is really flying by!  I had a doctors appointment yesterday and our doctor said that everything is looking great- that his heartbeat was strong and that he was about 3 pounds.  At this point, I will see the doctor every two weeks which will continue through the beginning of October when I start going every week.

As for how I am feeling, I can’t really complain at all.  I am pretty blessed with great pregnancies (knock on wood) so other than the usual third tri-mester stuff things are great!  I have been taking naps every once in awhile in the afternoon while Jay sleeps; because I have been more tired than usual.  I am also be a little short of breath while holding Jay (when I do, I have both boys squishing my lungs/diaphragm which isn’t really fun).  This cuts into our dancing time which is a shame but we have been dancing on our own too (I have a cute video of Jay that I need to share soon).  My sciatic nerve bothers me from time to time and I have a few contractions here and there but mostly I get an ache or a pain when I try to do something I shouldn’t (move or pick up something heavy) or when I move to fast.  Honestly, even with the watermelon sized belly I forget occasionally that I am pregnant…

I am pretty much in full on nesting mode at this point; however, this doesn’t differ a whole lot from my normal personality so… I am not sure that it should really be called nesting.  Most of our “baby preparations” are going into Jay’s big boy room since we are keeping the nursery the same for this little guy and plan on moving Jay to a new room.  Once I get everything settled in there for him I plan on washing and pulling out all of our tiny little clothes, I am sure that they will all look huge compared to the stuff I put on Jay, and getting that settled in the nursery.  My project list is long (what else is new) but there are only a few things that I really, really want to finish before he gets here- like his baby blanket.  I will keep you posted on how that goes :)

I guess that is about it for now.  I will try to be better about the updates and I promise to be really good about photo updates when he actually arrives.  I CAN’T wait to get some photos of him and some photos of him and Jay, they are going to be such sweet brothers!!

And because every post is better with a picture- here is one of the three of us from our Canada trip (yes, I am still working on those photos- I have just been a little busy lately).  I know that we aren’t in focus (don’t blame the stand in photographer my camera is not easy to use- especially when you are trying to get a toddler to look) but it is the best photo that I have of the growing bump and the scenery around us is great, don’t you think?

  1. Love you all and the scenery!! Good thing you have such great pregnancies since you’ve been busy with Jay, traveling (to Canada), a sick kitty, and another fun trip coming up in October! Funny seeing long sleeves and blue jeans and you all in September!
