My fingers are sausages.
My butt is growing.
Baby boy still will not let his daddy feel him kick. He'll be happily kicking away at me and the second Hubs rests his hand on my belly: nothin'.
Baby boy still does not have a name.
I've started getting the "holy crap, you're getting huge!" comments at work. Ugh.
Going into work is becoming extremely difficult. (Not because of the comments, haha.) A 9 hour work day plus a 1.5-2 hour commute each way ends up being a 12-13 hour day and I just can't physically handle it much longer. I need my recliner and pillows!!
My sister told me she found all of my niece's old (neutral) baby stuff and it's coming my way! Brand new clothes, pjs, swaddles, bibs, burp cloths, diaper bags, carseat buntings, toys, bouncy seats, crib stuff... I am pumped. After completing my registry I realized just how much CRAP a baby needs and I don't expect my shower is going to be all that large. I'm so happy I'll be getting a bunch of hand-me-downs.
I've been sleeping some nights! I would say I have pregsomnia only about half the time these days which is amazing. I have developed a new system which seems to be working: I start the night in our bed with pillow mountain and sleep on one side until 1:30am. (On the dot. Every night.) Get up to pee, go back to bed and lay on my other side until 3:30. Get up to pee, then go to the spare bedroom which has my snoogle (and a softer mattress). I often lay in there awake for1.5-3 hrs - I usually read a little, have a snack, pee again - but eventually I fall asleep. Sleep a little on that side, get up to pee, then go back and sleep on my other side until it's time to get up for work. It's been working pretty well and has been keeping my hip pain mostly in check! I am so relieved and have been a little more 'with it' now that I'm only a partial zombie.
OB appt on Tuesday. I'm going to demand that they let me give them my pee - haha! I've been using the protein urine test strips on my own and the results of the tests have been showing varying shades of green (the darker the green, the more protein in your urine). I don't feel like the tests are reliable so I want the official OK from the doctor. I don't think it's too much to ask. (Seriously - how hard is it to dip something in a cup of pee if it's going to tell them whether or not there's something wrong?!)
One more week until I hit the 30 week mark! Excitement!
