Trucking along


It's so hard to believe we're already 30 weeks into this pregnancy. Even though the first trimester was so much harder this time around, the pregnancy as a whole has been so pleasant and low stress.

I don't know if it's because we experienced one of the "worst case scenarios" with Lillian's birth, or if it's because this is the second pregnancy, but this time I feel a sense of peace knowing that we CAN do this... whatever the outcome.

Every bump, thud, turn, stretch, roll I feel in there brings a smile (and sometimes a little grimace of pain) to my face. As far as we know, he's a healthy growing active boy and will continue to be that way upon arrival. The movement is so different from my last pregnancy. Lillian would move enough that I knew she was still alive, but it was nothing like this.

In a way I'm glad she was my first because I just didn't know any difference. I'm glad that the concerns we had with my first pregnancy were the typical concerns of a first time mom. And I'm glad that this time I can really enjoy knowing how typical THIS pregnancy is.

I know we're not totally in the clear, but I choose to remain optimistic and truly enjoy it. It may be the last.

VIDEO! Lillian Taking Steps

She's been taking steps for a while now (about a month or 2) but never really enough to get on video.  Once we got her Sure Steps orthotics she's been able to go a lot further.  Without them her ankles give up about 2-3 steps in. 

She can walk longer distances holding one of our hands but that's much harder to do while taking video :).

Hump Day Bump Day: Week 29

1 Day late again this week. 

*How far along?: 29 Weeks

*Total weight gain: Not sure.  Yesterday I was back under 10lbs in the morning and gained 4lbs by night :-/.  Who's dumb idea was it to include this question in a pregnancy week by week questionnaire?

*How big is baby?: The size of a butternut squash

*Sleep?: Sleep is still pretty good with my amazing great wall of pregnancy pillow :)

*Best moment this week?: Lillian took 6 steps by herself!!

*Movement?: Ok, here's the thing... this baby spent about 3 days wedged sideways in my belly this week.  The little booger was kicking and punching me in both my sides, while also jamming his hard head into my left and his big but into my right.  I usually like all the movement, but this was taking it a bit too far.  Thankfully today he's in a better position.

*Food cravings?: Fried Chicken, I finally gave in and had some tonight.

*Labor signs?: Nope.

*Belly button in or out?:  Still in! (and Lillian is fascinated by it)

*What I miss:  It's cinco de mayo and I'm missing margaritas

*What I'm looking forward to: Hopefully a third tri ultrasound!
