The Big 3-0


I am thirty weeks pregnant today.



I remember at thirty weeks pregnant with Will, looking at M and saying, "Wow, we are really pregnant."

I actually don't feel "as pregnant" this time. I am really carrying Emma so differently, in fact, this pregnancy is so different, and I just don't feel as huge or unwieldy, though I am sure it is coming.

This weekend, I was constantly on my feet. We took Will to an airshow and I walked for three hours in 70+ weather. Then, I came home and finished emptying out the nursery (yay!) and then we went for a walk with Will. I was tired after all of this, but not exhausted and. . . drumroll, please. . . my feet are not even a touch swollen! With Will, I would have been searching for my house slippers to shuffle around in by the second hour into the air show. I also didn't have any contractions, and with Will, I would have been a contracting fool. Emma does sit a lot lower on my bladder, so there were lots of bathroom breaks, but other than that, I felt pretty good.

Will is going to see his Grandma on Wednesday and Thursday, and I will be getting the nursery painted. I hope to have pictures to show you by this weekend! I might not feel "as pregnant" as last time, but she's coming in just eight weeks from today, so time to get this show on the road!


It is what it is said...

Wow! 30 wks! As a reader that seemed to fly by. I remember you announcing your pregnancy like it just happened.

I'm glad this has been an uneventful and peaceful pregnancy. What more can one ask for with a toddler at home?!

Looking forward to pics of the nursery.

Thirty weeks is amazing! I cannot believe it has already been that long.

She is most def coming, my dear. And damn, time really has flown by! I can't believe my Peanut is 11 wks old?! How the heck did THAT happen?! That means you were 19 wks along when I had Peanut (isn't that odd to think of in that manner?!)
