Here we come 30 weeks!!!!

Far Along?  29 Weeks, 6 Days!  In a couple days, I will be in single digit weeks until Ledoux gets here!!!  Eeek!  So scary, but also exciting... and this also means single digit weeks until Lee gets home!! And that is 100% nothing but exciting!

Total weight gain/loss:Not sure on the totals- my weight has fluctuated this week by a pound each way, so I am saying +9... but I will have a more accurate count on Tuesday when I go to the doctor.  I have a feeling it may be closer to +10, but it is def. all baby.
 
Maternity clothes? Loving them, and there are so many cute maternity places out there!  With 2 months to go though, I am not buying much more (unless maybe I get a dress for my babyque) :)

Stretch marks? Yep, its there, and now it has a friend.  They are both really small, and on the under part of my belly so you really can't notice them, but I can.  Just putting as much cocoa butter on my belly as I can to make sure they stay and don't grow (or bring more evil stretch mark friends)

Size of Baby (in produce)? - Over 3 pounds (3.2), and the size of a butternut squash.  

Sleep: ahhh sleep, I love sleep.  and sleep is still good.  except for waking up to pee, which according to my husband should be 3-4 times a night (thats what he read) i am sleeping so good.  I actually slept 11 hours again this Friday.  feels so good.  I am going to enjoy this, because I hear that the further along I get, the harder sleep is due to being uncomfy.

Best moment this week:  Got a great opportunity at work and will be morphing into a new role, in charge of employee development for my company!  Its all new- so I am still trying to figure out exactly what my role will be, but it sounds like its really up to me to make it what it will be!  A little stressed that I have less than 2 months left at work to figure out my new role and get my team up and running, but it will all work itself out.  I decided the end of July- either July 2oth or 27th) will be my last day because I am going to take vacation before baby comes to spend with lee (depending on when he gets home).  I am also happy because my benefits change on July 1st, and although we have to pay more for the actual hospital bill (10% of total bill), I also will not lose any pay while on leave- thanks to my company paying 60% and California being one of the only states that also pays short term disability for maternity leave (55%)... so technically, I will make 15% more while i am on leave for 3 months.  Wahoo!  That is officially the first (and only) thing I like about the state of California. :)
 
Miss Anything?  lee.  being that it is memorial day weekend, I can tell you EXACTLY what lee and I would be doing- yesterday we would have went on an all day harley ride and stopped at every bar on the way for a drink... and today, we would be sitting in the backyard with a pitcher of home made margaritas, listening to Zac Brown (or maybe some Chris Ledoux) and enjoying having nothing to do. Ahhh i will miss those days.  we will find a way to still be able to do those things, it will just have to be a little more planned and less spontaneous.

Movement: yep, moving and grooving in there.  I still feel like she doesn't move enough, but thats my just being crazy I am sure.  I have a doc appointment on Tuesday, and that is on my list of questions (along with about 5 others!)
 
Food cravings: What is it with milk?  Holy cow- no pun intended there.  I am seriously going through milk like crazy!  I should add milk to my baby registries to save me some money lol.

New Additions? I got my first official baby shower gift in the MAIL from my Target registry!!!!!!! WAHOOOO!!!!  Thanks mom and dad!!!
Got my Stroller/Carseat combo!!!!!
Look how small her diapers are!
 

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope.
 
Have you started to show yet:  i swear it grew so much from last week to this week.
 
Gender: Girl!(We get to see her face in 2 weeks!)

Pregnancy related gripes? Not alot, other than my belly has started aching after getting off the treadmill.  I think it is starting to get a little heavy, so its time for me to take down my speed and intensity a little bit on there.  

Labor Signs: No

 
Belly Button in or out? In (but boy is it shallow...!)
 
Wedding rings on or off? On
 
Happy or Moody most of the time: It was a good week this week- Lee, correct me if I am wrong, but I don't think I had a freak out or cry session this week...did I?  Maybe one small little thing, but overall, I would say I did pretty good!
 
Looking forward to: The Babyque!!! and seeing Doodle!!!

Other news?  Nesting is in full effect- I cleaned the upstairs yesterday (like major deep cleaning!) and the downstairs today.  We are talking doors, base boards, bathrooms, floors, windows... I just can't stop!  I think knowing that my babyque is in a couple of weeks might also be a motivating factor to have my house sparkling clean.  Oh!  And now that I have landscapers come every Monday (thanks honey bunny!) I have new motivation to make my backyard looks awesome!  I have been busy decorating, and bought a bad ass outdoor papasan chair from Pier1 this weekend...soooooo comfy.  being outside it one of my new favorite things!

I found some fun old pics that made me smile this week :)
