30 weeks!

I can't believe we only have 2 months left until this little one arrives! She (well...the pregnancy) has kept me on my toes these last two weeks. I've been having the school nurse monitor my bloodpressure like my doctor asked. The first reading was 132/74 - which was fine, I was happy. Then it went downhill. :( My top numbers were 150, 142, 150. So I called the doc and left the numbers with the nurse. I still haven't actually talked to the doctor, but my numbers did go back down to the 130's the following two days. I have an appointment on Thursday, so I plan on just taking my little log with me and showing her all the readings so she can decide if it's ok or not.

Then Thursday night I had contractions (again). This time they were every 3 minutes for an hour. I lay down and drank water like I have heard to do, and they did stop. They weren't painful at all, just tight. It was interesting.

I had my work shower yesterday, which was a lot of fun. It was nice to have everyone together after school (most of them drinking...I enjoyed my lemonade). I also got some great things. We got our swing! I love it, it's so soft and cute. I can't wait to put Kate in it. We also got our monitors, my boppy, some fun toys, and a hooded towel/washcloth set with a bathtime rinse cup. I'm so excited. :)

Here is a picture of the swing (which Kurt and I put together that night). It's in her room right now, but will eventually be in the family room:

And here are my belly pictures for 30 weeks:

Kate has been moving like crazy still. It's to the point now where she'll stick out a foot/elbow/knee and I can actually grab it and feel it. Sometimes I can even figure out what it is. It's very surreal and so much fun!

I hope your BP behaves so that you can finish preparing for Kate's debut. You're looking great...I agree that it's hard to believe that you are 30 weeks!
