30 Weeks!

I can't believe it's been a week since I posted. I hate being without my camera!!! Luckily I got a call from The Geek Squad that it's in. Tomorrow the kids and I are heading down to Best Buy to pick it up. Hopefully it's actually fixed this time....for real! If not I'm going to be talking to the store manager and I'm going to demand a new out of the box camera...seriously I'm a pregnant lady with 3 kids...I NEED my camera!!!

Today I am 30 weeks! I'll have Michael take a picture of me tomorrow and post it then. I'm huge, but I know I'm just going to get bigger. I am starting to fit into my bigger sized maternity clothes and have grown out of quite a few already. Baby is definitely popping out there!

I finally had to give in and buy another pillow to sleep with so I could have my leg elevated when I sleep on my left side. I already have a body pillow on the other side in-between Michael and I so I can have my leg elevated when I sleep on my right side. Definitely getting more and more achy!

My pubic bone feels like it's going to break in two...good times! My doctor recommended getting a belly band to support my stomach and get some of the weight off my bone. I haven't gotten one yet though.

At my last OBGYN appointment I had to take all 3 kids with me...thankfully they were wonderful! The doctor thought Ella was hilarious because she was looking at me with this very hesitant look while she was using the Doppler to listen to Baby Z's heartbeat. I mentioned that she's freaked out by doctors because of her past experience of being in the hospital because of her Hydrocephalus. I guess I had never mentioned that before so she decided to take a look at Ella's ultrasound pictures and was surprised that nothing could be seen on those early pictures. Just to be safe she is having me go in for another ultrasound right around my 34th week. Earlier in my pregnancy I had a dream that I needed to get an ultrasound later on in my pregnancy and I couldn't take it anymore so I decided to find out the gender of the baby. In that dream I found out the baby was a girl and then I was super mad at myself for giving in and not waiting. Even though I wish I knew just for planning and shopping purposes I still really want it to be a surprise so I'm going to stay strong!!!

Not sure if I've mentioned it, but I have already washed all the newborn clothes for both boy and girl. They are all waiting in a bag ready to be packed. I always pack my own bag right around the 35th week so I have some time before I need to do that.

My SIL Stephanie so graciously offered to throw me a baby shower. Since I seriously I have all the clothes I need no matter what gender the baby is I decided to register for the things that we need no matter what. Things like diapers, wipes, laundry soap, stain remover, batteries and so on. I did register for a few things that have worn out due to being used by 3 children...such as the baby bathtub and a portable highchair. It will be fun to spend time celebrating our upcoming bundle with family and friends. Any excuse to party with my girl friends!
