My last week in the 2's! I don't know why, but 30 weeks just sounds so much more pregnant than 29. This has been a good week thus far. I had a very uneventful appointment with my midwife. Heart rate looks good and you're still moving like crazy so not much to worry about (thank goodness!). She mentioned my belly is measuring closer to 27 weeks, but she didn't seem concerned, so I'm not either. I guess I'll count it as a blessing? So far, I've gained about 17 lbs from my pre-pregnancy weight so I think I'm doing alright!
Last week, we also learned the gender of your little cousin who is due just 6 weeks after you! Of course, we would have been excited either way, but we couldn't be happier for your aunt and uncle and we can't wait for the two of you to grow up together.
Their big gender reveal also prompted a phone conversation between your uncle and Daddy (which I totally eavesdropped on) about throwing you both in your respective baby carriers and taking you for hikes in the nearby state park. I think it's safe to say that both Stuckert men are eagerly awaiting fatherhood. This discussion also prompted your Daddy to try on the secondhand Baby Bjorn that was gifted to us. And of course since we didn't have a real baby to test it out on, I took it upon myself to grab my childhood teddy bear to use as a stand-in. There are very few things your Daddy asks me not to divulge, but the picture I took of that moment was one of them. You'll just have to trust me when I say, it was really stinking cute.
Your Mommy and Daddy have still been seriously slacking on getting things in order for your arrival. I figure, I only have a few more weeks to be my lazybutt self, so I'm taking full advantage of them. What can I say? Your Mama likes her sleep. Just something to keep in mind for the future, little one :)
Well, we've got a busy few weeks ahead of us, baby. Let's enjoy this peace and quiet while it lasts!
All my love,
