30 Weeks!

I’m actually posting this ON my 30 week turnover! Woo! First time in a few weeks I’ve been on the ball.  I even have a belly picture this week!

We moved into the apartment yesterday.  We still have a few things at the house to pick up, but we should be done by tonight.  The apartment is a disaster.  It was great putting apartment stuff into a house, but vice versa is not so pretty.  I’m just hoping we have enough space to hold the in-laws this weekend for baby shower #1.  As long as we have a clear path to the bed, we should be fine I think.

The nausea over the past week has been less than fun.  It kicks in around 3-4PM and lasts until I wake up the next morning.  I’m going to be more vigilant on drinking water.  I barely had two glasses yesterday.  Yes, I know, it’s bad.  I’m also starting on prunes.  My ‘wake up and HAVE to go’ thing I’ve had the entire rest of the pregnancy is beginning to slack off.  I think this might be another reason I’m getting nauseous.  I’m still eating, but there isn’t room for the food!  Good thing I don’t mind the taste of prunes!

The leg pain is out of control.  It used to wake me up every 2-3 hours.  Now it’s about every hour.  Chiropractor is this week though! Woo!  That should help for a few days.  I also have my 30 week appointment this week.  Appointments every two weeks is going to be awesome.  I’m so impatient!

I can’t believe I’m 3/4 of the way through the pregnancy.  It feels like it got here fast AND super slow all at the same time.  How is that possible?  I’m sitting here thinking “wow, only 10 weeks!” AND “wow, still 10 weeks?!” — Strange. 😉

Here is my belly!  Looks pretty normal to me, but maybe it looks bigger to you?  Same size?

So This Is What It Feels Like…

…to be in the third trimester.

It hit me hard today.  I couldn’t sleep past 8:00 this morning, so I’ve been exhausted from the moment I rolled myself out of bed.  I also have a soreness in my side.  It feels like my skin is stretched so far that it might tear if I move too suddenly.  I don’t think it’s actually my skin, but a muscle under my skin.  All normal from what the internets say, but it really does put a damper on doing anything useful when it’s difficult to stand up straight.

I’ve also been a bit nauseous today.  I had a sandwich with turkey on it, and apparently I’m back to my first trimester hatred of turkey.  We had a good run in the second trimester, turkey, but I think you are going to be a husband only lunch meat for the next little while.

Also, bending over? Yeesh.  I feel like I’m going to pass out or vomit as soon as I tip my head even slightly past my stomach.

Is it worth it? Absolutely!  I just hope all my nausea inducers from the first trimester don’t come back.  What would I do without ice cream for the next 11 weeks?! Ah!

Everything Is Driving Me CRAZY!!!

Okay, let’s just say that MAYBE this all has to do with pregnancy hormones…. but once you hear the things going on in my life, you may think it’s everyone else who is to blame.

1.  My sister is a gun loving, pro-choice hating, liberal-bashing conservative.  Actually, that describes about 99.9% of my family.  Not that I’m pleased with it, especially the parts of my family who don’t believe that two loving adults who happen to share the same undercarriage can’t get married, but I put up with it because I KNOW that changing peoples minds on politics is impossible.  They can’t change mine, so I don’t even attempt to change theirs.  That being said, my sister keeps tagging me in posts on Facebook that are completely wrong and sick.  For instance, two days ago she tagged me in a post that had two pictures, one said “conservative rape kit” and showed a gun and a pamphlet that said “castration made easy.”  The other pictures showed a pamphlet entitled “understanding your rapist” and a Planned Parenthood parking pass.  I asked her to delete me from the post because it was in such poor taste.  She refused.  She tagged me in another today about guns.  It wasn’t as horrible, but it’s just more and more weight pushing on my crazy button.  I (think) I now have it set up so that I have to approve anything I’m tagged in, but I guess I won’t know for sure until someone tries.  So… there is thing one.

2.  We are looking for a new house.  Our closing date on this house is the 17th.  It’s pretty clear that we are going into an apartment for a couple months, and we are fine with that.  This is a big step to buy our next house.  We want everything to be perfect for baby girl to grow up in.  My mom keeps sending me houses to look at online.  Now, don’t you think that I have seen every house online in the areas we are looking in?  If you think this, you are correct.  She also knows what we are looking for.  So, she keeps sending me houses that are not in the right areas AND don’t fit our criteria at all.  I know she means well, but she literally sent me 10 houses today and all of them were wrong.  Why does she continue to think there are houses out there that I haven’t seen yet??  Why is everyone DRIVING ME CRAZY!!!

3.  Moving SUCKS!  Especially at 28 weeks pregnant when all you want to do is sleep, eat, and watch Sex and the City.  There are boxes just sitting here collecting dust… waiting to be filled.  I don’t want to move.  I want to stay here and nest and forget about all this craziness.

Ugh…. I think I’m starting to feel all this stress at once….. I wish I had some chocolate pie.
