30 Weeks Pregnant - Baby (Boy) #3

Time for another pregnancy update.  We are officially in the 30's!


I've had a couple flair ups of that sciatic nerve pain again, but other than that I've been feeling good!  I've been more tired than normal, but I think that is more related to having a bit of a head cold over the last week.

I finally finished the baby's quilt and sent it off to my old neighbor, who has a quilting machine - so she will get it quilted for me, and then all I have to do is finish the edges!  I've also been working on sewing a valence for the window in the baby's room, a crib skirt, and a banner.  It's coming along nicely.  I would like to create some sort of plaque/wall display for one of the walls in the nursery, and I would like to find a lamp and a glider or rocking chair to put in the room, and then I'll feel like everything is pretty ready!

These past couple weeks have just been marked with so many blessings from sweet friends.  First, Melanie from Country Roads surprised me with a package in the mail!  She sent a valentine for Wyatt and Gwen, and an adorable little shirt for new baby boy!  She is so thoughtful.

Then Alex from Inspiration Clothesline sent me this carseat canopy!  I don't know if she even knew that this was one of the things that I really wanted to get for the third baby - I had been seeing them around and thought they looked so handy, and easier than trying to cover the carseat with a blanket all the time.  It was such a blessing to get that in the mail!

And then finally, my sweet friend Ashley called me about throwing me a shower for Baby Boy!  I was so excited when she offered - I didn't really think I would get a baby shower this time, but I loved having that time to celebrate before Wyatt and Gwen came.  I was feeling a little bummed about not getting that for Baby #3 when she told me she wanted to throw me one!  She has an adorable idea for a theme, and she created custom invitations to go with it:

Aren't those adorable?  I was really impressed!  I cannot wait to see everything she has planned for the shower!  She is so creative, and such a blessing to me.

I finally decided on the hospital I want to go to - I was thinking of switching hospitals because of the billing issues we had last time, but decided against it.  I scheduled a time to go over my "birth plan" with one of the nurses (it's a program my hospital offers, and I love it).  The birth plan is probably a whole separate post, so I'll refrain from going over it now, but I'm glad we have the option to talk to the nurses about it beforehand, considering my history.

I'm also trying to put together outfits for our maternity pictures in a couple weeks!  My friend, Danae, is able to take them for us this time, and I'm so glad - she does a great job!

Baby's movements just seem to be getting stronger and stronger, and I love feeling him pushing around in my stomach!  Wyatt finally got to see it too, and it was pretty sweet.  We were sitting on the couch and watching as the baby moved around in my stomach, and Wyatt kept talking about how the "baby's moving in there!"  Then I put Wyatt's hand on my stomach and he got to feel the baby move - he seemed confused at first, but then I told him it was the baby saying hi to him, and he couldn't stop chattering about it!  It was adorable.

I'm trying to enjoy every little thing about this pregnancy, since it might be my last, and I think Baby Boy will have a cute little personality.  He seems shy sometimes, but then at other times he'll push his little hand or foot against my hand when I touch my stomach, like he's saying hello!  I love it.

You are seriously adorable! I don't blame you for being bummed about no shower, I would want a shower for every kid, even if it's not for items you need, you could always have a diaper shower where each guest brings a pack of diapers. So I am glad your friend is throwing one for you! And the theme is so sweet!

I can't believe how far along you are already! I haven't been able to keep up with blog reading like I used to, and I guess that's why it just seems to be flying! You look great, and that outfit is so cute. I also love the invitations to your shower..they are so cute!

You look beautiful! I'm with you--I'm hoping each baby gets a shower...they all deserve new fun things :) I can't wait to see the finished nursery.

Yay! I'm so glad you got it and liked it. :-) I HAD seen it on your list in your "Going from one to two" series and had wanted to send it your way for a while. Thank you for all the ways you bless me!
