I'm feeling so good right now.
-besides being overwhelmingly tired all the time...
-and besides having to wake up to go to the bathroom 2-3 times a night (or day, depending on when I'm getting my sleep)...
-and besides not being able to bend down and put on my shoes (Hector comes in handy here)...
-and besides my tummy itching like crazy--making me apply cocoa butter 24/7...
-OH.. and besides the horrible, horrible acid reflux I have..especially at night.. gross..
Ha ha, besides all that, being pregnant is wonderful. There is nothing greater than feeling Cohen moving all over the place. And I cherish these moments with him, because I know in the next 2 or 3 weeks his free space in there will drastically reduce as he will be gaining 2, 3, 4, 5 pounds.. And he'll probably start moving less. Or maybe I'll just feel it more.. We'll see. :) The other day while laying in bed, I felt him having (what I think must be) hiccups. It feels just like a tiny, rhythmic spaz in my belly. Usually in the very center of my body. But it can be felt from the outside, so I had Hector lay his hand where I could feel it. He felt it too, and agreed that these must be hiccups. They last for several minutes and come at random times. I can't wait to see his tiny little face when he has the hiccups on the outside. :) Or his little hands and feet stretching out and curling up, the way he's doing on the inside right now. Ohhhh, I just can't wait to meet him!
So, here is my 30 week belly picture. I know I just put up the 28 week picture, but this really was taken 2 weeks later. :)
Remember 4 weeks? Right after I found out I was pregnant?
And I haven't done this previously, but I wanted to put a bare belly picture on here. I think that Cohen growing beautifully inside of my belly is a wonderful thing, and should not be hidden. And maybe some people still have a problem with bare bellies.. My advice? Don't look. Because it is beautiful part of nature and a woman's body and it should be embraced. I am fortunate, so far, to not have any stretch marks.. And I'm crossing my fingers! My belly button is stretching waayy out, but not popping out.. Not sure how that is.. :)
I love it!
Maybe after this work weekend, I'll do the blog on Cohen's nursery. It's basically finished. We have all the big items. And a few decor things.. but, those things will be added gradually from here on out.
Thanks for reading!
