The big 3-0

30 weeks! 30 weeks! 30 weeks!

I get to have a 3 at the beginning of the weekly countdown now!

It's sooo exciting!

From our trip to the pumpkin patch today!
I felt a lot of kindred towards all those big round pumpkins!

This week Dan and I have been figuring out how to get the nursery finished up, get the house ready for the shower, and go through our weekly routine of gym, pre-natal fitness classes and rehearsals.

Needless to say we were a little stressed this week. That however called for a favorite past time of ours....the Friday afternoon nap. When I got home from the chiropractor and Dan got home from work, we both agreed we needed to talk for awhile and catch up. Talking turned to laying down, which turned to passing out for 2 hours. It. Was. Glorious.

We awoke in time to get a late dinner, watch a movie and go to bed at midnight. 

It helped to really energize and reconnect us after a crazy week. 

Saturday Dan had a gig and while loading his car we were hit by a huge storm. I wish now I had taken pictures of the fiasco that was Dan loading all of his gear in his car with 30 mph winds, torrential downpours and lightning. Poor Dan!

Best representation of Dan running in the rain I could find.

I spent Saturday cleaning the house and making some more art for the nursery. By the way, here is another fun pic from the nursery!

Just a little bit to tide you over to the big reveal!

How far along: The big 3-0 (weeks!)

Total weight gain: Stayed the same! Woot! I have been trying to work harder at my prenatal fitness classes. Hopefully it's paying off!
Maternity clothes: One more week of hot weather made for a grumpy Julia. Scraping the bottom of the barrel for clothes, but hopefully now I can get out all my cute fall stuff again.
Sleep: Still passing out. Just getting more uncomfortable with my hips and some lower back pain. I even got dizzy laying on my back this week. That was a new experience! But one I had been warned about. So now I have 2 different options when I sleep. Left side or Right Side. Sigh.
Best moment of this week: Friday night nap/date night with my hubby.

Right before we passed out. Notice the dog also wanting to cuddle.

Miss anything: Being able to walk for long distances without feeling like my feet are going to fall off. Walking all the way out to the pumpkin patch and around for an hour wore me out!
Movement: A ton! Actually some of the movements this week hurt! Just kicking something that may or may not have been my liver. I definitely felt it and it definitely made me say OUCH!
Food cravings: Subway! Also something I am not eating right now, so of course I crave it.
Anything making you queasy or sick: I think I'm eating less. I am starving, but after eating a few bites feel super full. 
Have you started to show yet: Yep! Though I feel I am still cute pregnant and not HUGE pregnant yet. I know its coming though....
Gender: Let's hear it for the BOY!
Labor signs: Some cramping Sunday after walking around a ton. Also was probably dehydrated. Got home and drank a bunch and sat down. Instantly felt better!
Belly button in or out: Had to just check, but it's still in!
Wedding rings on or off: Swollen, swollen, swollen. :( The heat I am sure didn't help this week. But I feel like on top of my fingers, my ankles and my face are super swollen too. 
Happy or moody most of the time: Little stressed, little tired, but super excited for the upcoming week!
Looking forward to: So much! We have our couple "camping themed" shower this weekend at our house. There will be tents, a keg and fajitas! So it's more for Dan than me, but it will still be SUPER AWESOME! My whole family will be in town too which is great. On Monday we have a midwife appointment and an ultrasound. We get to see our baby again! Soooo excited! So maybe even 2 posts next week with all the stuff I will have to tell!

  1. You guys are adorable. I love the idea of a snuggling/napping date night. Also, I'm so sad we're missing your shower! I have your gifts all ready to mail you, but they won't make it in time for this weekend, probably. We'll be camping in the woods and thinking of you. :-) Can't wait to see the next ultrasound! So much love to you three. xoxo
