All is good in my world. Today I took a nap with my dog sleeping on the bed, my new kitten sleeping on my shoulder, and Baby tumbling around in my belly. It's so sweet it's almost sickening.
Other random updates...
Had a good midwife appointment yesterday. Better than last one. I think that I just didn't really "click' with the midwife from the previous appt. Thank god she won't be delivering the baby. Yesterday all was well. I don't even have much to report. I'm just...feeling good. I think the chiropractic appts are helping and everything just feels good. My wrist is starting to hurt some, so the midwife recommended a brace. That helps, but it's awkward, so we'll see. Random fact - everyone (the midwives, chiropractor) keeps commenting on my really strong stomach muscles. It's from horseback riding. Apparently, having strong core muscles is good all of the time except in pregnancy. When the midwife first touched my stomach yesterday she actually thought I was having a contraction at first. Ooops. Oh, and because no midwife appt would be complete without a comment on diet, I learned that I should cut down on the amount of fresh fruit I eat. Only 2 servings recommended per day, due to the amount of sugar in fruit. Damn.
And speaking of my diet, I've been doing so much better lately. Yay for me! I've been focusing on less carbs, more protein, cooking better meals, and packing lunches and snacks. B has been helping me out too by helping to cook more and checking in about what I eat. Don't judge...I asked him to be Big Brother for me. I need it to keep me on track. Because of it, my weight gain slowed this week and I actually went down a pound. Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to lose weight, just watch what I eat. It's given me more energy to eat more often and eat healthier.
Our Baby Shower is this Sunday. It will be a co-ed party at the park with very little baby-themed stuff. Just want I wanted. Hopefully the weather holds. I'm really, really excited. Originally, I was going to post about the planning of the Shower, because it was stressing me out how my friend was trying to make it into something I didn't want. But then I just... let go and also did a better job of communicating what I wanted. Now I'm just looking forward to it. I'll keep you posted on how it goes.
Really don't have much else to say. Which is neat because it means that everything is just...going well. I'm surfing along on this wave of contentedness. I hope it lasts.
I'll leave you with some pics...
I hit 30 weeks today! Huge mental milestone for me. I remember looking ahead and thinking 30 weeks was SO far along and somehow an important number in my mind. It feels good.
Bear loves my belly as a perfect resting place to sleep on.
