30 weeks!

Welllll, only 10 weeks (or less) to go...that's 70 days! And probably the fastest 70 days of the year. This time of year FLIES by, before I know it I'll be taking down Christmas decorations with a new baby strapped to me, but on the Outside of my body! Yesterday when I was searching for gold tights the store had Christmas music playing. And then today Starbucks served me my coffee in a Holiday cup!!! It's just getting better and better. I LOVE this time of year. I'm bummed that we had to move out of our place this week because I was seriously busting out the Christmas decorations as of yesterday. Grrrr to our A-hole property management company that's forced me to wait until Dec. 1 to get going.
Anyways, back to being 30 weeks pregnant. Not really the funnest time. I'm border line over it. I think the only reason I'm not totally over it is because as long as he's still on the inside I can get things done on the outside. This last week I had a mini melt down, once again due to the A-holes we rented from. I'm stressed out because now the soonest we will be in a place is Dec 1 and that only gives me about 5 weeks to get the house unpacked and his room done, which is basically impossible as I see it. I was so excited to get to decorate his room and get furniture and "Nest." I didn't get to do that with Raya because we moved out of our place a month after she was born, so there was no point setting up her room and then packing it all up a couple weeks later. I know he'll be in our room for the first couple weeks at least (which will most likely be the first couple months, but we'll talk about that later ;) But I was still so excited to decorate and set up, and now I'll be lucky if the house is unpacked. Blahhhhh. So that's always fun to be dealing with when the "countdown" part of the pregnancy started. Our last night in our old place I couldn't sleep because I was freaking out that I was going to go into labor while we were trying to move out and it was going to be such a mess! Well not literally, I mean in my dreams I always made it to the hospital. But a mess because all of our stuff was in boxes, half was in storage and the other half still needed to be moved out. Oh and speaking of early labor...twice this week he was pushing on my belly so hard that I had to stop everything I was doing and just breath because I was sure he was going to push right through my stomach. Especially since it was Halloween week I had super vivid pictures of an alien-like recreation. But seriously, this kid is sooooo strong! He kicks me and pushes on my belly like no other. Needless to say, I'll be excited for him to be on the outside :) But if he could just wait until at least everything is unpacked that would be Awesome! So if you feel like sending us some wishful thinking, or praying, or good vibes or special dances they'd all be VERY MUCH APPRECIATED :)
This is me at 29 weeks,
with my cheese face climber.

And then at 30 weeks
Today when we were walking to my doctor appt Raya would run a few feet ahead of me then run back to me and touch my belly, then run off a little and run back and touch my belly. It was so, so, so cute! This age is so fun because one day she'll do something that blows me away. I really didn't think she got the whole pregnancy thing, but clearly there's a lot going on in that head of hers. At my appt my doctor always lets her hold the heart beat mic and find the heartbeat and then clean the gel off my belly. Its fun to have her involved and even more fun that she has fun being involved. LOVE THIS KID!
As for the baby in my belly: all looks good. He's measuring a week big, which really doesn't mean anything. I feel much bigger than I did at this point last time, and I haven't gained as much weight as last time so all signs point to a big baby. I guess I'll know soon enough!
