Counting Down

I’m 30 weeks pregnant.  Only 10 weeks until my due date!  I feel like I’ve reached the point when the focus changes to the weeks left rather than how far along I am.  Gears are shifting towards preparing for labor and delivery.  I’m also starting to feel VERY pregnant.  I no longer look in the mirror and think, “Ohhh look I’m showing more! =)” …now it’s, “This thing is still growing?! =O”  I love that baby is growing in there and LOVE that he’s big enough now that I can feel him every time he moves.  It just amazes me how the woman’s body stretches and adapts for a baby.  Nathan says it’s funny looking (“it” being my belly) and I have to agree with him a little.  See for yourself.

(I remember when this sweatshirt used to be baggy.) It’s getting harder to sleep.  My hips and back ache.  Okay, I’ll be honest, it’s getting harder to sit and stand too.  I can’t stay in one position for too long before something starts to ache.  Please do not mistake this for complaining, just a statement of fact.  I am so happy to be in my third trimester but I am starting to understand what other mothers have been telling me…the last couple of months are uncomfortable.  I make the best of it by living in yoga pants every second that I’m at home.  These are the first thing I put on when I get home from work. =)

But enough about me.  How’s baby boy doing?  He’s getting fat. He’s putting on more layers of fat and getting plumper by the day.  According to the average he is around 3lbs, maybe closer to 4!  I’m drinking tons of milk for his growing and hardening bones.  This little guy is just hanging out and preparing for life outside of the womb.  Here is an animation of what it looks like from the inside.

We’re doing well, baby and me.  Nathan has been able to feel him from the outside quite a bit.  He is so excited to have a son on the way.  He’s already making a ton of plans.  This little boy will have fishing poles, rifles, bows, and the best toys.  His daddy is a kid at heart and can’t wait to play! =)  Our little family is going to be just wonderful.  Life is good to us. ❤
