30 Weeks DOWN!Posted: April 17, 2010
Can’t believe it’s already been thirty weeks! This is a pregnancy milestone I’ve been pushing for since day one and I’m finding it hard to believe that it’s come and gone…It really does feel like we’re in the home stretch now and that before we know it we will be driving home with our new baby! At our 30 week midwife appointment this week we learned that I passed the glucose test with flying colors (!)-no gestational diabetes here… that my iron levels are low (I’ve eaten 3 hamburgers since… not sure if that’s exactly what they meant by “fortify your diet with iron rich foods”), I’ve gained a little over 18 pounds (Kurt’s gained a little over 15…so in our “biggest gainer” contest looks like I’m still in the lead!), Baby S’s heart rate is holding steady in the 140’s and I”m measuring right at 30 weeks with another ‘sunny side up’ baby (hopefully that little sweetie will find comfort in the correct birthing position in the coming weeks)!
My mom also threw me a beautiful baby shower this week! What a wonderful way to make a grumpy, uncomfortable mom feel so loved! It was a fun evening of friends and family, games, great food and wonderfully generous gifts! It was a night that made it all too real that we really have a tiny little baby on the way SOON! We are getting so excited for it all but mostly to put to rest the constant debate over whether the baby is a HE or a SHE!!!
