30 weeks down...10'ish left to go!

Don't mind the sweaty, makeup-less's the belly you wanna see anyways, right?

Today marks 30 weeks. Look at Peanut grow!!

My belly feels like it is at it's max capacity already. The thought of 10 more weeks of growing is starting to scare me just a little. Ok, well not really scare me, but i'm anxious to see just how much bigger I will get. I see a lot more stretchmarks in my near future, but nothing that a tummy tuck won't fix though!!

I'm still feeling good and rockin' this pregnancy. The occasional heartburn is kicking in after I eat dinner mostly, but nothing that a few tums won't fix. Sleeping is starting to get harder these days. I'm having trouble finding comfortable positions and I awake often trying to reposition myself only to lay there unable to fall back asleep. I think it's time that I start looking for a good pregnancy pillow (any suggestions, ladies?). I had one with my last pregnancy but I lent it out and now I can't remember who has it.

As of last week, I have officially closed my small home daycare. I enjoy being able to sleep in with my kids now. Sleep is good. My plan is to enjoy these last few months of this pregnancy, spend more quality time with my kiddos, deliver Peanut in November, enjoy the holidays with my family, and then go back to work in the new year. My youngest will be entering Preschool in Januray so it will be a great time for me to go back to work. Fingers crossed that finding a new job will be as easy as I'm playing it out to be in my head.

SIDE NOTE: Any surrogacy agengies out there looking for a new Case Coordinator? I would totally rock that position. Just sayin'....

I have a really fun blog post coming up and I am SO excited to share it with you all. I have been in touch with A & M's egg donor (we are friends on Facebook) and she has so graciously accepted to be a guest blogger here!! I'm making up a fun list of question for her so if you have anything you'd like to add, please do so in the comments section. I think it will be really neat to hear about surrogacy through an egg donor's prospective. This will be awesome to look back on for Peanut as well.

Oh--And how can I forget! I started my hypnobabies class last weekend (first of 6 classes) and I am so excited about this. I've been practicing my relaxation techniques EVERY DAY and I can already see a transformation in how I am able to quickly get my body to relax. I also received a wonderful gift in the mail from my IPs this week--Ina May's Guide To Childbirth. I LOVE this book!! It makes me want to pack up my things and head to The Farm for this birth. I am SO incredibly thankful and lucky to have the IPs that I do. They support me and are on board 100% for this VBA2C. They trust me and my body to do what it's meant to do--birth babies! It doesn't get anymore awesome than that.

Love the bump, and love me some HypnoBabies and Ina May! As a matter of fact, I'm going to turn on my Needles are Okay track right now to quite my brain so I can sleep. :-)
