Two more weeks down, and halfway to my first goal of making it to June. But I mean, really – May is halfway over. That’s crazy to me.
Mother’s Day was last week, and it was a nice day that I spent with my girl and guy. It was a crazy day too, weather wise, as we woke up to this:
And by the afternoon, we were dressed like this:
That’s a Colorado spring snow for ya! T was so excited to build that snowman – most of the time our snow is so powdering you can’t form a snowball.
I also spent last Saturday celebrating the graduation of a dear friend from nursing school. I also was able to meet up with a mom friend of mine who I met when we were pregnant with our firsts. She’s also pregnant, about 9 weeks behind me, with her third, so we took a moment to grab a belly shot.
So baby #2 update time:
How far along? 30 weeks
Baby size: A cantelope, and about 17 inches in length and 2.5 lbs
Weight gain: Still up about 12 lbs from the beginning – the gestational diabetes diet makes it hard to gain weight – I actually lost a lb.
Workouts: Well, when the weather’s nice, I get out for walks. But it hasn’t been too nice lately, and we’re in for another week of rain showers.
Maternity Clothes: Definitely.
Stretch Marks: None
Sleep: I’m back to getting up multiple times a night to use the bathroom. Comes the territory 🙂 I pretty much sleep walk there and back though, so it doesn’t affect me too much.
Gender: Sweet baby girl
Movement: Still moving a ton. And it’s all over – one day high, one day low. Sometimes (like this morning) she’ll roll from side to side.
Labor signs: None
What I miss: Carbs? Does that count, haha!
Nursery: Fabric for the curtains should be delivered today!! Crib skirt was shipped yesterday. I need to schedule my private lesson that S bought me for Mother’s Day to help me me make a curtain so I can make all of the others. It seems like it should be pretty easy, but it’ll be nice to have someone holding my hand through the first one or two. I also ordered curtain rods yesterday! I’m also going to attempt a crib sheet – I bought some cheap fabric to practice with before my expensive one comes in.
Belly button, in or out: In, but flat
Wedding rings, on or off: On
Mood: I’m definitely more irritable.
Best moment this week: Mother’s Day with my family. Even though T had an epic meltdown (in the middle of which she informed us that the world does, in fact, revolved around her), I was able to take an hour nap with her and enjoy a nice afternoon.
Looking forward to: 30 week appointment on Monday!
