30 weeks….3/4 of the way there! 63 days left till we kiss those little cheeks. In two weeks I’ll have my last ultrasound. I feel like it’s been so long since I’ve seen him, I can’t wait to see him one last time before the big day. Everything is looking great growth wise for our little man according to measurements and heart rates. I never really have to do kick counts, because he is ALWAYS moving. I find that rather comforting, even though that means I have to go to the bathroom every five minutes. My belly is feeling very “full”. I rarely look at the camera due to sleep deprivation and major bags under my eyes, but I’m really going to miss feeling him kick and all the little hands that gravitate to my belly throughout the day. I have to say that this is my easiest pregnancy compared to the others. As I thought about it more this week, I think it is almost equivalent to the pregnancy with Brooke. It seems easier probably due to the fact that I have the three littles to keep me going, and I KNOW that there is such a great reward at the end of this pregnancy.
I still have major cereal cravings. I have moved on from Kashi, and just eat whatever sugary cereal has the extra box top points on it at the grocery store. This week I’m munching on Lucky Charms & Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Healthy, I know. Sometimes I add bananas to my cereal for extra nutrition. Lily cries if her lucky charms has marshmallows in it (?!?), so I get extra in my bowl at breakfast. Around 1 or 2 in the morning, you will find me at the computer desk, half asleep while eating cereal out of a dixie cup and cruising Pinterest. Sometimes I find little pieces of cereal on the floor the next morning. I must be so tired I miss my mouth, but never too tired to get a snack.
Here’s some sweet conversations with the girls…
“What are you going to do when you meet Beckham at the hospital?”
“I’m going to hug him really little.” -Brooke
“I’m going to hold him.” – Lily while she cradles her hands and smiles really big
“Why don’t you talk to Beckham…he loves to hear you talk”
“WAKE UP BECKHAM, PLEASE COME OUT NOW” – Lauren, in a monster voice straight into my bellybutton
“Where is Beckham going to sleep when he comes home?”
“In my bed with me and my baby” -Lily, who sleeps on the top bunk
“What do you think Beckham is going to look like?”
“He is going to look like Barney” – Lauren
Well, I sure hope he doesn’t look like Barney, but I can’t wait to see his sweet little face. I look forward to that moment the girls finally get to meet him too. I never expected them to be so interested in my pregnancy and be so excited about someone they can’t see. I’m sure that times will get pretty crazy, but God has just blessed our family with such sweet children.
