Pregnancy Journal...30 Weeks

Am I really 30 weeks along?  Do I only have 10 more weeks of this amazing journey left?  How has the time gone by so fast?  I'm so happy that I have been able to enjoy pregnancy this time around.  I'm very lucky to have been able to 1. become pregnant and 2. have nearly perfect pregnancies.  I'm so happy that I have been fortunate enough to experience the joys of pregnancy, and I can honestly say that I will miss it.  So, my lab work shows that I no longer have antibodies...YEAH!  My glucose screening test came back normal, and I am still negative for Syphilis!(not that I was worried about being positive for an STD.  The state of Indiana has an extremely high rate of Syphilis and requires that OBGYNs test for it twice during pregnancy).  Here are some prego stats for you:

Belly Button: In
Best Moment: Feeling baby kick and move constantly
BP: 105/72
Cravings: Anything chocolate
Food Aversions: Eggs
Gender: ???
Maternity Clothes: Yes!
Sleep: Getting better, around 7 hours
Stretch Marks: Not yet, please continue to be kind to me baby...
Symptoms: My boobs are leaking colostrum, and I've had a few punches to the bladder from baby
Weight: 143 lb (up 8 lb, seriously?  19 lb total)

I have yapped quite a bit about this pregnancy and how I've been feeling.  I've neglected to talk about Jake or Michael.  We'll start with Jake.  Jake is amazing!  He is officially potty trained now!  I continue to be amazed at how smart he is!  He is able to recognize letters, shapes, and animals.  He's talking more and more everyday.  He has a healthy appetite, just like his momma!  He is strong willed but has an extremely sweet spirit, just like his daddy.  He is Michael made over... with the exception of his eyes and his appetite.  I'm proud to say those came from me!

Michael is such an amazing father and husband.  I am so lucky to have him.  He is so patient and so kind and has such a sweet spirit.  I don't know what I'd do without him...or how I lived without him for so long.  He's my best friend, my soul mate, the love of my life.  My first, my last, my forever!
Michael and Jake

Best Daddy ever!
