Over the hump towards 30 weeks...  And a Mother's Day belly update picture.

I was 29w3d on Mother's Day 2013

Let's see... pregnancy news... 

I'm gaining weight at a crazy pace (I think... Dr. B. doesn't seem to agree...).  I don't see how I can eat pretty much the same and still be gaining like this.  (I realize- there is another person in there!).  I'm not running 5-6x/wk (down to 2-3x/wk) but some days I feel like WHOA when I step on the scale.  The interesting thing is that I'm still in medium maternity clothes.  The only big issue is that my chest is getting HUGE.  I've had to buy bigger bras and I have no doubt that I'll have to do that again in order to have them fit in 2 months!

Michael has started to get in a place that doesn't feel so nice to Mama!  When he curls up on my right side, he hits or presses on something that really hurts.  When we were grocery shopping yesterday, I must have looked like a one hundred year old woman at some points because I could barely walk, even leaning on the cart.  The good news is that, as soon as he moves, the discomfort goes away.  When I was running on Saturday, he got in the same spot and running moved him (for a while, at least!)  He moves A LOT!  He's been a mover and shaker since I started feeling him, and that has not changed!  At some points, I swear I'm going to get a foot through my TAC! (Not really, but he gets that low and active at times).  It's really amazing to feel this much movement by only one baby.  It reminds me of Bobby and Maya, even though I know there is only one person this round!  It makes me wonder how big he is.

From a doctor perspective, I have my 30w visit on Wednesday, when I'll get the form for the 32w MFM/level 2 scan.  After my 33w appointment, we'll be going every 2 weeks... How did we get to this place? Wow...

Up and coming items... Maternity pics (I've never had these done... a friend is a photographer and offered to do them back when I was still early pregnant and, honestly, I couldn't picture getting to 30 weeks... now they are this weekend!), an 'unshower' (my BFF is organizing a luncheon where we can all just get together, eat, and have an excuse for cake!), and our babymoon (coming up at the end of June!).  I'll write more about those as they get closer/happen, but it's still nuts to think that we are T-58 days to delivery and planning "end of pregnancy" events!

You look great and not big at all! But I hear you on buying new bras...I had to buy more when my milk came in as thee was no way I could stick to the tightness of the DD cup!! So I'm wearing E cup size now...before pregnancy I was a B/C cup max even during my period....sigh...
Love, Fran
