30 weeks and Candy Cane Leggings

December 6, 2015

I. love. these. leggings.

I bought them on Cyber Monday, practically the moment the clock chimed 12:00. I bought them because I thought they were super cute and they were on sale from Mindy Mae's Market. When they arrived in the mail, I put them on almost immediately and you know that feeling you get when you wake up and realize it's Christmas? I had that feeling when I slipped these bad boys on. The fabric is absolutely perfect. Nice and thick! I'm pretty sure I'll be wearing this babies all. winter. long.

But enough about the pants. Let's talk 30 weeks. I'll skip all of the "baby is the size of this fruit" stuff because, suffice it to say, he's normal. We had an ultra sound on Thursday and I got two nice pictures of his cute little profile! Doesn't seeing your little babe's profile just make the whole thing more real? That and the little jabs and nudges in your ribs from time-to-time. He's a wiggler! I love watching my tummy when he's especially active and seeing it pop out and back in where he's kicked it. It's even more fun when my FAMILY (emphasis on the word family here, although close friends are alright, too) gets to feel it.

I'm starting to get the "when are you due?" questions (February 11), but I'm deciding right here and right now not to let it bother me, so go ahead! Ask me a million times and I'll tell you, all the while trying to keep the pregnant lady angry hormones hidden behind my eyes. It's really unfortunate that I don't have much of a poker face.

Going on extended shopping trips is a trial, whether the girls are with me or not. I can normally make it through two stores alright, but after that, I'm basically spent.

As for emotional well-being, let's just say it's not normal and I will be REALLY happy when I have good reasons for being sad or angry. Andrew and the kids will be, too.

I haven't been doing much any decorating for the boy because I'm a bit preoccupied with decorating for Christmas right now. Besides, I don't feel like I have a lot to do. We for sure will need to buy another bed for Alexa so we can move her into Chelsea's room, but we don't need to worry about that for another couple of months.

Most of all, we're excited to get him here. I'm planning on having him in the hospital and I'd really like to deliver him without pain meds, like I did with Alexa because it was such an amazing experience. I'm a little nervous because I was induced with Alexa and on Pitocin so I wonder what difference it will make. I guess we'll see!

Thanks for stopping by today, guys! Keep it real.
