29 & 30 week update!

I didn't blog for the 29th week but I did get a picture while on vacation!  Here are some of the stats for week 30.

Weeks: 30 weeks 4 days
Weight gain: 19-19.5+ lbs
Name progress: None but hopefully we'll have it narrowed to top 3-4 this week. 
Exercise: 2 times this week after a week off.  The weather in FL is great.  Warm and low humidity.  I'm also loving that there is more light at night so more time to get out with Nic.  
Pregnancy Complaints: I found out last week that I'm anemic so I'm having to take iron pills.  They suck but I'll be good and take them with my prenatal vitamins at night.  Lately I've been feeling more pressure in my pelvis but nothing too uncomfortable.  It feels like he is burring into my pelvis. 
Other news: We are working on getting the crib built and some of Nic's furniture transitioned to the mock baby nursery.  I'm so excited to finally have his crib built.  There is so much to do and only about 2 months to go!!  Next things on the to do list, wash all the baby gear stuff and Nic's hand me down clothes, deep clean the house, have the carpets cleaned, clear out clutter from closets, buy a car for Leo (hopefully in May), pack the hospital bag, and much more stuff.

Lately, he has been moving so much that Leo has seen my belly jiggle and move.  I feel him much more than I ever felt Nicolas.  It is an awesome feeling.  I can tell when he is adjusting to get comfortable and even have noticed some hiccups on most nights.  My favorite part of pregnancy is knowing that I'm growing a human being.  I'm patiently waiting to meet him and see what he looks like, his disposition and personality, etc.

I know Nic is going to be a great big brother.  Lately he is addressing my belly more and wants to make faces or buy little things for his baby brother.  He is the sweetest boy and while I know it is going to be a huge adjustment, Nicolas will be the sweetest big brother!

Here is my 29 week pic from the cruise.

Bare belly @ 30.5 weeks.

Caro, my sis, wanted a side by side comparison so here it goes.  It is crazy how different I'm carrying.  I'm weighing about the same but the belly is more out there than with Nic.

This post is long enough so see you next week!
