Baby M Number 2: Week 30/Mother’s Day

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!
