My First Pregnancy: Weeks 29 & 30

Hey everyone! Yes, it’s another two-for-one post. The past 2 weeks were pretty busy between my job and traveling to Michigan over the weekend for my baby shower, so I didn’t get the chance to sit down and write. So here we are!

The past 2 weeks have been active ones for this baby. She is noticeably stronger and she is in the habit of sticking her back and booty up into my right side’s ribs. I can tell she is running out of room between my pelvis and ribs (I have a short torso), so now there’s nowhere to go but out. 🙂 It is making sitting more uncomfortable and I have to recline quite a bit to get her out of my ribs. It made the car ride to Michigan a lot more uncomfortable than last time when I was just 20 weeks along.

She is hiccuping at least once a day, sometimes twice. I figured she’s in the head-down position because I can always feel the hiccups down in my pelvis and my midwife confirmed it this week…she is head down! There is still a chance she will wiggle around over the next few weeks and change position, but at that point, she was head down.

Our weekend getaway to Michigan was a lot of fun and I’m so blessed to have such wonderful friends and family. My baby shower was put together by family friends, Cortnee Kirby, Carly Crone, Anita Schlabach, my sister-in-law Hannah Troyer, and my mom. It was a beautiful shower with such cute decorations and delicious food. Especially the macaroni salad and the cake! The baby and I (and Nathan) were given lots of fun gifts and she has a full wardrobe of very cute clothes now.

The rest of the weekend was just relaxation with my family. We stayed at my brother Randy’s house where we enjoyed the pool and had a campfire each night. I got to spend time with both of my parents which I really enjoyed. I don’t get to see them often so I tried to soak up every moment.

My brother Randy and my sister-in-law, Hannah, are planning to come down when we are moving into our new house to help us get situated before the baby comes [hopefully!]. My mom & brother Daniel will be traveling down to Tennessee a few days after my due date so she can be around to help us out with getting settled in and with the baby whenever she decides to come (if she hasn’t come at that point). It will be a crazy time so I’m very grateful that she will be coming to help out. I have no idea what to expect but I know I have an amazing husband who will do whatever it takes, and we also have such a generous group of family and friends who are willing to help. I’m one lucky woman!

See you next week!
