Today marks 30 weeks of pregnancy! He kicks all the time, but especially at night or early in the morning when I’m just waking up.
I haven’t had any food cravings lately, and the acid reflux is much more tame than it was a couple of weeks ago. I’m feeling more and more like a mama every day with the reality of his birth coming closer and closer.
A pregnant lady is going to struggle from time to time. Whether she struggles under the weight of fatigue, a busy work schedule, or social obligations (most likely, all three), she is comforted by the kicks of a little life inside her. I have certainly felt insecure at times, but I’ve found that – over all – pregnancy really is a time for nothing but joy and celebration.
Here’s what’s on my to-do list for this week:
1) Organize Baby Clothes
We already have Grey’s clothes for up to around four months! Lots of onesies, adorable hats, and matching pants are carelessly shoved into drawers in my closet. I’ve gotten them out to show my family so many times that I was tired of folding them neatly every single time. It’s time for that to change.
2) Prepare Labor Bag
While I already have most of what I need for my labor bag, I still need to make sure every comfort is considered. I don’t want to be that prego lady who doesn’t prepare for the unexpected! Plus, I may as well start keeping a labor bag with me at all times because you never know when the real due date is going to be, right?
3) Write Grey a Letter
I’ve been wanting to do this my whole pregnancy. Perhaps it comes to mind now because he’s so big and it feels so real that we’re actually going to be parents! I’d like to write him a letter while he’s still in the womb, telling him how much I love him, how blessed I feel to be his mom, and how excited we are to welcome him into this world. I’m sure my husband would love to write him a letter, too.
If you all can think of anything else I need in my labor bag or something you wish you had done during this last trimester, please let me know! I’d love to hear from you!
