30 weeks

Woo hoo!! The countdown is on. Less than 4 weeks until maternity leave and (hopefully, fingers crossed) less than 10 weeks until I have my gorgeous bubba in my arms. I'm grinning from ear to ear. It's all down hill from here :-)

I ended up on the maternity ward Sunday night because I thought I was going into labour. I had constant cramping/spasms really low in my abdomen. Plus I hadn't felt bub's move in ages. Went and got monitored and all looks well. Bub's is breech and transverse so hopefully he/she decides to turn in the next 9 or so weeks! Bub's is measuring perfectly size wise too which is a load off my mine. I have decided to give 12 hour shifts the flick. I think that's what the problem is. That and another UTI!!

Squirt has been wiggling heads lately. I keep getting nice headbutts under my ribs, especially when I'm sitting and my posture is quite poor. Poor thing must be getting it's head squashed! And because of bub's position I'm getting nice kicks down low! Sometimes it feels like bub's is stretching out it's legs in some funny kind of way because I get mammoth movement on both sides simultaneously. It's an amazing, slightly strange feeling.

We have finally started looking at baby stuff. We ordered a cot and drawer/change table combo from Toys r us last weekend because they were half price so hopefully that should be here in the next 2 weeks or so. We've finally decided on a pram too now the only problem is they are out of stock of the pram here in Canberra and they won't be back in stock until June, which considering we are due early July is cutting it a little fine. But as long as we have it before bub's is born.

My in laws are coming down from QLD this weekend which should be lovely. They only saw us at the very beginning of pregnancy (around 6ish weeks) so they are excited to come down and see us again before bub's is born. Hopefully the baby behaves and they'll get to feel lots of movement while they are here.

Well better go have a shower before it gets too cold. I think the Canberra winter has started already. It was only 1-19 degrees down here today. Lucky we just bought a little oil radiator heater for bub's. Might have to turn it on tonight though and test it out :)

30 Week Bump

No I don't wear my wedding rings on my right hand,
it's just because I took my photo into the mirror :-)
