week 30

*After the baby shower on Saturday, so I'm looking a little tired.*

About the baby? Our baby is around 3lbs already!  I read somewhere (one of the 5 websites or 8 books I read) that he'll gain... or maybe that was I'll gain a pound a week from here on out.  Gosh, I just had a moment... that's a lot!

Maternity Clothes? nothing new in this category.  However, it took for.ever to find a dress to wear to my shower.  I tried on several regular dresses, just bigger sizes, and couldn't find one that was a good length (meaning, not to short or not to short in the front and longer in the back)

Stretch Marks? surprising, no :)

Gender? boy

Movement?   oh yes!  Mr. Kaden has woke up his mom several times this week with his forceful karate kicks!

Sleep?  Not too bad, but both hips are super sore when I wake up.

Food Cravings? I might just take this category out because I have yet to crave something (that is not out of the normal, pre-pregnancy cravings)!

What I Miss?  being able to breathe ;)

Symptoms? bigger belly, that's for sure

Best Moment This Week?  2 big things this week:
1. working in Kaden's room!  Kirby has done so much work and I am so thankful for it all.  He knows I'm super impatient and antsy!  I plan to post pictures of all his hard work soon.
2. celebrating Kaden at the baby shower yesterday.  I'm so grateful for what my friends did for us and I was so happy to spend some time with people who love and care about us! 

Looking Forward To?  Kaden's crib and the glider are coming to us next week... can't wait!!

Things to remember:
1. I passed the 3-hour glucose test "with flying colors" according to the nurse!
2. I've started to get light-headed and queasy lately.  Since my blood work came back okay, I'm not sure what's going on.
3.  Kaden has a foot or something stuck under my right rib!  I've analyzed his movements and hiccups lately and he might have turned head down... we'll see?!?
