Third Trimester...busy...busy...busy...

Hello everyone! It has been way too long since I have blogged. A lot has been going on so I have not had much time for the computer(that can be a good thing sometimes) :) Thad was on a 4 week break from school so we got to spend a little bit more time together...we did a little traveling over the holiday, but most of that time was spent in packing and moving. He has been such a blessing of a husband. Since I was unable to do many of the hardships that come with moving he did a lot of it himself. He painted back over our walls in our old apartment,(I will definitely miss the color), and he ended up having to do a lot of the lifting and hard cleaning while I was at work. We did have lots of help for when the big moving day came, but it is just so different when I am not used to my body letting me do the hard work myself. We have finished our birthing classes, which we were very happy with. We could not imagine if we had not taken a Bradley Class, it has been so helpful! I might do a full post just on our class sometime because I think every pregnant women needs to know about it. Also another exciting thing is that I have finished training the new girl at work and next Friday will be my last day of work!!!I am so excited about this, for I feel like I still have a lot of getting settled and preparing to do before the baby comes. Third Trimester! Wahoo! Wow, it has gone by so fast. This weekend I will be 31 weeks pregnant and I definitely feel like it. My belly has popped out there and I can tell the baby is starting to have less room to move around in. I still have been feeling pretty good...the tiredness never went away for me, and with trying to get settled into our new place now that has made me even more tired. My midwife said that the baby's head is down, so at 7 months now it will probably stay down, which is always a good thing to hear. The heartbeat sounds good, my blood pressure is good, and I have definitely been gaining enough weight. I am up 30 pounds now from my pre-pregnancy weight. My midwife also said that she felt some braxton hicks contractions while measuring my belly. I was surprised because I could not feel anything at all, but now that she told me I think I may have noticed them a little. I am super excited because with our new place we have an extra bedroom for the baby, so I have been having fun dreaming of how I want to decorate it. Once I get stuff unpacked and put together i will have to post some pictures....but for now here are a few pictures of me at 30 weeks. It just sticks straight out!!!
