This next week we will be in single digits!! Next post it will be 9 weeks before Baby S makes his appearance! So exciting!!! It finally feels like it's getting close! I cannot believe we are almost half way through October already! If I tell people we have 10 weeks left they are like "Wow, that much longer, huh?" But if I tell people December they say, "Wow, that's coming up pretty quick!" I love that response so much better! :)
This week has been a lot better week for me. Last week I thought my emotions and feelings were going to get the better of me. This week there's been a little sensitivity but not near as bad as last week! :(
This last week seems to be revolved around lack of sleep. But hey, besides feeling exhausted all day long, at least I am feeling good.. He is so so so active! It's so neat that he can hear what is going on around him. I wish B & C were closer so that he could start getting familiar with their voices. Poor little guy hears the craziness of my kids all day long! o_o I noticed the other day he heard a car horn beep and he immediately jumped! It was pretty neat! Also, he has been having a ton of hiccups lately! It could be as many as 3x a day he gets them! I can tell we are getting closer by the way my body is starting to feel. I wonder if I will hit the nesting stage?? Because usually a pregnant female will start to clean and organize like crazy knowing that she will soon be bringing home a new bundle of joy? Will I get that too?? My nesting stage starts about 34 weeks so we will just have to wait and see! :)

Symptoms: Exhaustion, Pelvic Pressure, Back Pain, Heartburn, Crazy Dreams, Frequent Potty Breaks again, a little Braxton Hicks and I've noticed after work a little swelling in my feet. :(
|30 Weeks! I keep trying to fit into my normal clothes, but I really shouldn't! :)|
