Preggers I: 30 Weeks

We were trying to take Christmas pictures this week... and so this 30-week picture was taken while we were goofing around and getting a little slap-happy... or snap-happy with the camera.

How far along?  30 weeks

How I am feeling?  Very well.  I feel like I'm finally used to being pregnant... this, of course, just weeks away from no longer being pregnant, and having a whole new life to get used to.
How big is baby?  The size of a cabbage or cucumber... 15.2-16.7 inches and 2.5-3.8 lbs

Sleep:  I sleep well, although I'm up an average of 2 or more times a night.  Sometimes its hard for me to fall back to sleep, but overall, I'm sleeping well.
Boy/Girl Prediction:  One or the other... we're getting really excited to find out!
Baby Nicknames:  Pretty much Baby, Jitterbug, or Nugget

Best moment this week:  Not pregnancy related, but I passed my National O&M Certification Exam.  I have been working on this since before we were pregnant, and it feels SOOOO GOOD to have it finished, and be able to focus on our baby, and all that we need to do before D-Day.

Food cravings:  Regular Cheerios
Missing:   SKIING!  Vail mountain opened this past weekend, and I LOVE skiing!  This is the first year since I've lived in Colorado that I won't be skiing the week of Thanksgiving.  I just keep treasuring the movements of our little jitterbug, and I know the sacrifice is worth it.
Movements:  YES, and they are amazing!  I don't know if I will ever get tired of these amazing sensations.  They are getting stronger, too.  One even made me grunt this past week.

Labor Signs:  No.  Thank goodness!

General Attitude:  So happy for where we are right now, and for the holiday ahead.

What I am looking forward to this week:  Our first baby shower!!!  :-D  We are headed to St. Louis for Thanksgiving, and Hubby's family is throwing us our first baby shower this weekend.  We are so excited!

Milestones:  Passing my O&M exam is a pretty big milestone... but in terms of pregnancy, I'm not sure if I had one this past week.  We took our first Christmas Card pictures as a family of three -- probably the easiest time we will have getting a family picture for a few years to come.  :-D
