30 weeks

Baby’s energy is surging, thanks to the formation of white fat deposits beneath the skin. (Have those kicks and jabs to the ribs tipped you off yet?) Baby is also settling into sleep and waking cycles, though -- as you’ve also probably noticed -- they don’t necessarily coincide with your own. Also this month, all five senses are finally functional, and the brain and nervous system are going through major developments.

Here we are 30 weeks (well tomm) I cant believe it. Some days go fast and others drag. I'm sooo gratful to be pregnant and almost a mommy. However if 1 more person tells me to enjoy my pregnancy I might snap~just saying. I just want to meet the little man, I will be sooo happy once hes here. Safe and sound.

My follow up appt with the midwife since the trip to the hospital. Well it started out 50mins late~not us, her.I brought in my kick count sheet and she said it was okay, better than before. Hes still doing 10kicks in about 1.5hrs, if it goes to 2hrs then I have to call/come in. She went over the u/s and was very pleased with the results,YAY! Then she says "you've gained alot of weight but you look great" in 1 sentence. Ya, that went over well...we go over what I've been eating and she says "thats not alot".hmmm. Something to keep an eye on. Then she brought up seeing a shrink, my husband thinks its because I ask alot of questions. I thought I was sopost to ask questions. Whatever. I smile and dont take her up on her offer. We make the remaining appts and discover the midwife is out of the office when I'm due (yipee), this makes me soo happy cause now shes on my shit list! hahaha

P.S I just read my doctors office online recap of my visit- the friggin N.A put the wrong weight into the computer. I always even though it sucks look at the scale and I know what I weighed, she put in the wrong friggin number. And just to be on the safe side I just weighed myself and its no where near her number. Grrrrr
Oo well, next week I'll say haha when they think I lost weight.

what a week...

Here is a unexpected picture of Mikey on Thursday,the longest day of my life so far...
We had my 28w appt (I was 28w 1 day) on Thursday. Went in to meet with the midwife and the 1st question out of her mouth was is he moving alot? I said no, he moves when he wants to. Well she said I should have called since hes not doing 10 kicks per hour and she wanted to put me on the monitors(stress test). So at this point I start to panic. Before the monitors she does the doppler and his heart rate was 130-140, his norm is 140-150 but that can I change. But it still worried me. She asked the assistant to hook me up to the monitors for 20-30 mins to see his movements and heart rate. Well to make a long story short she was having a hard time keeping the h.r. on the screen (come to find out she had monitor in wrong place). They had me drink some oj (it was warm-yuck) to try and wake him up. It worked a little bit but not what they wanted to see. I figured she was going to tell us to go home and relax and try really had to count kicks. NOPE. She sent us to the hospital :( All I can say is thank god my husband was with me and comes to all of my appts because I couldn't have handled driving or calling him to meet me there. I kinda lost my shit (in the car). So we get there 5min drive from doc office. They hook me up to the test again and clear as day you can hear his heart 140-150's. We are sitting there waiting for the u/s machine to be available and he starts kicking me hard.THANK GOD.
Go go for the u/s and hes dancing in there, playing with his fingers and moving his mouth. Head is down,and ready to go. The fluid is good and cervix is closed and hes a healthy 2pounds 11oz and 28w 3days not 1 day. The placenta is in the front and that is why I'm having issues feeling him. They send us home and that's that. I have a follow up appt Thursday. I have been doing the counts and it takes him 1.5hrs to do 10 instead of 1hr but its better than the 3 a day I was getting.
Thats all for now.

3rd trimester!!

Its official, I'm in the 3rd tri!! Crazy thing to say, and as of next Wednesday I'll be 7 MONTHS PREGNANT!! WOW. Nothing crazy to report. I have decided that I want this baby to come out soon-not now, since hes not done cooking but I cant wait until 6/30. That's just crazy. Hes moving when he wants and I hate it, makes me soo nervous.
We got my new car, I need to take a pic. 2011 honda pilot, very safe and plenty of room. I cant wait to get the car seat, something that is on our registry. And according to my husband I have to wait until after my shower 5/16 to get it if no one else does :( I'll feel soo much better when we have the car seat.
Other than that, I'm boring. I coughed last week and peed my pants, yup I really did. I also tried to weigh my boobs-yup you read that right. It didn't work because I don't have a food scale...I might invest in one!!hahaha
Ohh and I got a super cute shirt for the babe, since out of 9 babies he is the ONLY BOY I figured its fitting! hehe
