Where to start? Well, I had another ultrasound a few weeks ago at 28w3d. It was so fun to see the baby again. I learned that the baby is in a transverse lie, which I kind of suspected based on its movements. Its head is on my left side and its butt is on the right. When I feel the kicks, they are WAY over on my side. I can't believe how far over I feel them. So, I feel most of the big body parts right across my belly button area. I swear, sometimes I think the baby is going to break right through my uterus and pop out through my skin. I can now also identify its little hands moving and feel its butt. Pretty crazy.
How far along are you?: 30w
How big is baby?: squash
Weight gain/loss?: Up 19lb at 30w.
Stretch marks?: This belly cannot stretch much more without them appearing, I'm sure
Maternity clothes?: Definitely except for workout clothes
Sleep?: I'm still sleeping pretty well, but rolling over is a challenge. Can I rent a fork lift to help me?
Best moment this week?: Definitely seeing the baby again.
Food cravings?: Fruit, ice cream.
Gender?: It's a surprise
Movement?: Sometimes I wonder if this thing is going to bust through my belly alien-style!
Belly button?: It's pretty much flat and the top lip is sticking out, so I think it will be an outie soon.
Symptoms?: Starting to slow down a bit, but still feeling pretty good overall.
What do I miss?: Going for a long run and really pushing myself.
What I'm looking forward to this week? Getting the nursery set up!
Milestones?: Third trimester, baby!

When we went to Mexico in April and our dog sitter extraordinaire stayed with the boys, we decided to move Levi to the big empty bedroom so that she could, you know, actually have a clean bed to sleep in. And that is where Levi has been ever since. He has his throne, his bed, and another blanket that he likes to eat his morning Kong on.
