30 weeks (tomorrow)

tomorrow i hit the 30 week mark. 30 weeks down, 10 more to go. it's terrifying.

i had my rhogam shot today. it went in my butt. it didn't really hurt, but it did sting. i also had blood drawn beforehand, and i must say that i get better at it each time it's done. i've come a long way since passing out in the chair when i was in high school! i'm still terrified of the iv and epidural, but i guess i'll make it through.

the date is set for shower #2. my first is on april 26th, and the second will be on may 3rd. i'm really excited.

i'm also super stoked that my MIL offered to purchase out travel system. ::wipes sweat off brow:: i need to learn to stop stressing myself and realize that things will work out!

i am for sure doing a bump picture this week. it's been what...three weeks since my last one? i'll take one tomorrow, i promise!

i now think that i need to find more to eat.

28 weeks.

By this week, your baby weighs two and a quarter pounds (like a Chinese cabbage) and measures 14.8 inches from the top of her head to her heels. She can blink her eyes, which now sport lashes. With her eyesight developing, she may be able to see the light that filters in through your womb. She's also developing billions of neurons in her brain and adding more body fat in preparation for life in the outside world.

no belly picture this week, i think. i'm already at 28 wks, 4 days, so i may as well wait until friday when i hit 29 wks.

it's st. patrick's day. i would give my left arm for an irish car bomb and some strongbow pints. le sigh.

that is all. i'm going to play with my puppy.

gap outlet.

i HATE the gap outlet. my main reason is because when i'm shopping, i do not like to dig to find things. i like them to be readily available for me to find them. and it's always a madhouse, as it was today. my first mistake was going on a sunday afternoon, but seeing as how i had a 30% off friends and family coupon that was good through today only, i didn't have much of a choice. i can't even tell you how many times i've visited the gap outlet, only to leave with empty hands. i just get too frustrated by the amounts of people and how i can never ever find anything easily.

today, i actually left with a new pair of maternity jeans and jean capris! i was so excited. i looked through the baby stuff for about a minute and a half before i just couldn't take it anymore. all in all though, i mark the visit as a success, seeing as though i walked out with two pairs of maternity pants for under $15. score.

28 week post to come.

27 weeks.

Here's what's going on this week...

This week, your baby weighs almost 2 pounds (like a head of cauliflower) and is about 14 1/2 inches long with her legs extended. She's sleeping and waking at regular intervals, opening and closing her eyes, and perhaps even sucking her fingers. With more brain tissue developing, your baby's brain is very active now. While her lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning — with a lot of medical help — if she were born now. Chalk up any tiny rhythmic movements you may be feeling to a case of baby hiccups, which may be common from now on. Each episode usually lasts only a few moments, and they don't bother her, so just relax and enjoy the tickle.

i've started feeling a lot more pain in the past week. i've been feeling some pelvic pain (especially when i'm working) which is really slowing me down. i probably try and do too much at work, but i can't help it!

i had an OB appointment this week as well. everything looked good, as usual, and i found out that i passed my glucose screen. hooray! they also told me that i'll need to go in the next week or so for my rhogam injection. i hate shots, so i'm not looking forward to it. i've heard that it isn't all that bad though.

the date for my work shower has been set, and i'm getting super excited! my good friends megan and julia are throwing it for me, and it tickles me pink to see how excited they are about it. it makes me feel good that people care that much about me (and little mia).

i believe that's all for now. until next time!
