30 weeks.


Link

belly grows. heartburn really sets in. head and feet and elbows moving around like a whirlwind tornado in my belly. 30 weeks pregnant is so different from anything my body has ever experienced.

i'm trying to stay positive because i don't have any other options right now, but when i see people jogging and spinning around i do feel a little jealous. when TH makes a flying leap onto the bed, i ask him - please do a flying leap for me, too. it's weird to think next time i'll be jogging and leaping and spinning, i'll have a baby.

i crave cinnamon rolls, indian food, and chocolate ice cream.

we spend nights planning for baby, watching dumb movies, and going for epic walks around the Hill.

i started knitting and working on some baby projects. i think i'm going to try and make them my labor projects. keep my mind off of it all, you know?

30 weeks pregnant. i feel more different than ever - physically of course, but also emotionally. it's a trip.

Cutest pregnant lady around! And I'm not just saying that, to make you feel better ;) Really & truly, my friend... Cute! You just wait... before you know it, you'll be spinning & jumping with a little toddler by your side. And I can't wait to read all about it. Unless, you move to Portland... Then I would be spinning & jumping with you! ;) Love you, Jules!

You are so beautiful pregnant! And I am amazed at how positive you are! I guess I'm okay till after 30 weeks and then I dread being pregnant, that is when my body changed the most and stretch marks came. But you will probably be blessed with no stretch marks :) Hopefully! I just sent a cinnamon roll recipe to you - are you still a gmail e-mail? If not - e-mail me at carasullenger at yahoo dot come and I'll resend it!
