30 weeks pregnant, seriously? I cannot believe that. That’s like so… PREGNANT! Eek! Lots of exciting stuff going on over here. Baby room is coming together – itz painted, itz got furniture, and baby registry is made and baby showers are being planned. Itz gettin’ real! Let’s slow things down a minute and discuss my thirty-week pregnant bumpdate.
Baby Itz: 30 Weeks
Baby’s size? Head of cabbage.
Maternity clothes? Best things ever.
Stretch marks? Nope.
Sleep: Sleep has been better than last week, but still waking up between two to four times a night to pee.
Best moment this week: The absolute AMAZING response I got on my post: Body Image During Pregnancy.
Miss anything? Not really.
Movement: Itz crazy – since Baby Itz has grown so big, now I can feel him in two different places in my stomach at once when he moves!
Food Cravings: No cravings, just eating a lot, in general.
Anything making you queasy or sick? No, thank goodness.
Gender: BOY BOY BOY!!!!
Labor Signs: None, not that I would know what those feel like anyway!
Symptoms: Still getting over my little sickness I faced last week, but much better. Just a lingering cough – nothing having to do with pregnancy.
Belly Button – in or out? Itz in, but sometimes I can see it through tight shirts, if that makes sense.
Wedding Rings – on or off? On!
Happy or Moody? Happy!
Looking Forward To: Jonny and I are starting our baby classes tomorrow! Itz three classes combined into a six-week session: Labor & Delivery, Breastfeeding Basics, and Newborn Care. Should be interesting!
Funny story about the above picture. My friend took it yesterday of me at school and when I was hugging my kids good-bye for the day, one of my usually quieter kiddos said, “Mrs. Itzkowitz? You’re beginning to show!” Haha it was so cute!
Now let’s briefly discuss the baby registry. I decided to register at Pottery Barn and Buy Buy Baby. I figured I’d get the basics at Buy Buy Baby, and get my bedding and decorative items from Pottery Barn. It didn’t quite work that way. I registered for very few items from Pottery Barn and was a little disappointed by their selection. I know they have more online, but we were in the store where it didn’t feel like there was very many “boy” decor items. Buy Buy Baby was better and we definitely registered for all the essentials. Thank goodness my mom and my sister were there because I was clueless! Stephanie was literally pulling things off the shelf as I was scanning and my mom was chiming in with her expertise, as well. Jonny chose to pass on the experience, but I registered for some green and some orange washcloths that I know he’d approve of! (Miami colors, of course!)
Where did/will you register? What are some “must have” items for my registry?
