30-Week Update

This update is about a week late--oops. Chalk it up to third trimester lack of energy and motivation, but honestly, I feel like every other week is frequent enough for updates since there's really not a whole lot to say. I think the main interest in these updates is the bump watch. People love to see pregnant bellies. Weird, but it is what it is.

Anyway, we celebrated Norma Gene and Boomer's 10th birthday with a fun little party this week, as we tried, in vain, to wrap our heads around the idea of being two months away from the babe's due date. 

As you can see, I'm pretty much ready to be launched into space to orbit the sun… Days away from generating my very own gravitational field. It's always a matter of time as a pregnant person. The good news is that no strangers have come up to me to rub my stomach--yet. Hopefully, it stays that way. 


The nursery has been painted, but is far from done! We have about a million other household things that need to be tended to, though. 

I've gotten more aches and pains, especially in my back. I'm sure that it's just a taste of what's to come. 

Flipper is all over the place, moving a ton! She is about three pounds and 15-16 inches long, which is hard to believe. I feel like, with how big I am, she should really be bigger! But she's definitely getting there. :) 

I finally seem to have managed to kick that epic cold--it only took three weeks! Yikes. But I'm glad to see it gone. I still have a bit of congestion, but that seems to just be one of the many perks of pregnancy. 

Other than that, there's not a whole lot to report. So far, there haven't been a whole lot of new developments baby-wise. I am definitely getting more excited, though! I am so ready to not be pregnant anymore and just have this precious baby. 

Hope you're all doing well and are ready for the holidays! Can you believe they're already here? The past six months have FLOWN by. I can't believe it's already time for Thanksgiving. Time to figure out Christmas!
