30 Weeks.

No photo today.  The camera is in the car with Nick at work and I didn't feel like doing a crappy cell pic. 

I am: 29 weeks, 4 days
Baby is: according to Babycenter, he should weigh about the same as a butternut squash (2 1/2 lbs) and is about 15 inches from head to heel
Total weight gain: According to my last OB appointment, I was down the 2 pounds I had gained.  Then I got sick.  So I'm guessing I lost more weight...
Maternity Clothes: yep.  I bought 2 new pairs of pants to take with me to Florida and I only end up wearing one of them. 
Sleep: depends on the night.  my body enjoys this game: wake up with excruciating cramps in my left leg.  exit bed to stand on said leg in an attempt to alleviate the pain.  bladder says "oh.. hey... since you're up, I have to pee".  Then mouth says "well, you know... since you're up... I'm thirsty"... but thankfully that doesn't happen every night.
Cravings: milkshakes.  I've been getting fairly consistent heartburn after pretty much everything I eat (or if I wait too long between meals) and milkshakes sound good to put out the fire in my throat.
Best moment this week: discovering Sonic will mix milkshake flavors.  chocolate banana - yay!
Worst moment this week: I was super sick over the weekend.  pretty much tossed my cookies all day on Friday and half the morning on Sunday.
Movement: extreme amounts.  this kid is making up for all the times I said "he's so quiet - that must mean he's a good sleeper"
Gender: boy
Labor signs: thought I was having Braxton Hicks on Friday but I really think it was my stomach warning me of the upcoming gastrointestinal theatrics
Belly button in or out? still in, but oddly enough - the scar from my gall bladder surgery has moved.  it used to be right in my belly button, now it's like an inch above it. 
What I miss: having energy.
Milestones: we've entered the 3rd tri since my last baby update post.  I passed my glucose test - yay!  I'm starting, slowly but surely, to do some work on the guest room/nursery.  oh and we picked a name.  well, the first name anyway.  we aren't 100% on the middle.  I think we'll keep it a surprise for now. ;)  oh and I picked a theme for the nursery.  The nursery that's still a disaster area.

Here's my list of plans that I need to do - this seems as good a place as any to keep track of what I need to do:

  1. clean out closet
    1. hanging clothes to charity or master closet
    2. sort through extra blankets - move those we're keeping to hall linen closet, rest to yard sale pile
    3. sort through games - keep only those we actually play, rest to yard sale pile
    4. find a new home for out of season household decor (garage?)
    5. old TV to charity
    6. box of misc glassware - sort what to keep (and move to new home - hutch?) and what to sell
    7. wrapping paper, gift bags, bows & tissue paper - need a new home (move to hall closet)
    8. other misc crap - sort through what to keep (and figure out where to store) and what to get rid of (trash vs yard sale)
  2.  clean out dresser - misc wrapping paraphernalia
    1. once empty, move to master bath
  3. card table - clear off, fold up and move to garage
  4. rocker - decide if going to recover or get rid of. 
  5. trunk - sort through items and move to living room
  6. curtains - yard sale
  7. b and w photos on wall - take down, possibly re-frame and move to another wall in the house
  8. other decoration tchotchkes on the walls - remove, decide what to repurpose and what to sell
  9. nightstand:
  10. the Madras bedding from PBK that I heart
    1. lamp - yard sale
    2. small hat box - yard sale
    3. stain to use in nursery
  11. get twin bed from dad's house for guest bed
  12. sell wicker headboard (list on Craigslist)
  13. queen mattress/box springs - sell (listed on Craigslist)
  14. Paint (one of the blues from paint chip - chair rail or wainscoting/board & batten?)
  15. clean carpets (or remove and replace with snap together laminate flooring)
  16. assemble crib
  17. sort through Ben's old clothes/toys and put away
  18. find and purchase changing table/dresser
  19. make or order bedding (PBK's Madras bedding)
  20. get crib mattress and bumper
  21. fill room up with other adorable baby gear
  22. bring home baby and be done with this planning nonsense :)
whew.  that's a lot.  I can do it.  I already did one thing. :)
