Pregnancy Update: Weeks 29 and 30

Hey, I made it through 3/4 of my pregnancy!  I always thought the 9 months would seem like forever, but it has been flying by.  I can't believe that I'm almost to single digits in weeks left.

I have to go in to visit the doctor every 2 weeks now instead of once a month.  Everything is looking good so far.  Baby girl was a little stinker when the nurse went to check her heartbeat this last time.  Every time the nurse would find her heartbeat, she would move away from the monitor device.  She did this for at least 5 minutes and finally the nurse gave up and decided to let the doctor do it.  It took the doctor awhile as well, but finally baby girl took a break and let her get the heartbeat.  We were laughing about how active and crazy she was being.  She is causing trouble already! :)

I'm definitely feeling a lot more movement as she is getting stronger and kicking me harder.  I think I've felt some hiccups recently too.  It's a weird sensation.

This last weekend we got a lot accomplished with the nursery.  We painted the walls, bought a crib and dresser and put those together, and picked out a rug for the room.  I will share some pictures once it's a little more put together.  It definitely felt weird when I was helping my hubby with the crib.  It makes everything feel so much more real.  Sometimes I feel like it still hasn't sunk in yet that I will have a baby in 10 weeks.  Eek! :)

I've decided to hire a doula to help me through the last part of my pregnancy and through the labor and delivery.  I'm meeting with a couple this week and am really excited about it.  I'll share more information on that in a future post.
