30 weeks and 1 day

30 weeks yesterday!  I don't think I've gotten any bigger lately.  At least I hope not.  I've felt the same size for about a month.  But the scale begs to differ...  We are going to a 3D ultrasound soon to see Oliver!  I'm pretty excited because it's been 10 or 11 weeks since our last ultrasound.  I'm an online shopaholic so I'm always buying new things for Oliver.  Recently in the mail we go monthly tie stickers for pictures, a Boppy cover and Tommee Tippee bottles.  Next shipment is a silicone bib and an Aden swaddler.  I keep thinking the only things I still need for him are towels and burp clothes.  I keep forgetting things like combs, pacifiers, lotion... I'm pretty stocked up on wipes and have about one package of diapers size newborn, 1 and 2.  I really think I have everything but I just feel like he is going to get here and I'll be sending Josh to the store because I totally spaced on something essential.  

The big news if that Josh is getting out of the Air Force and we are moving back to Ohio where both of our families are from!  Actually, most of our family is in the same town.  I will be leaving in 4 weeks!  My midwife told me the latest she wants me traveling (700 miles) is 34 weeks.  We are still going to make it a 2 day trip because Penelope hates long rides and I'm supposed to walk around every 2 hours to avoid clots.  My mom is flying into Kansas City and then us 3 girls will head back.  We are still unsure of Josh's final date here in Missouri but it might only be a few weeks before Oliver is born.  It will not be after thank goodness.  So I basically don't have a choice when to leave and neither does Josh.  He's going to close up everything here in Missouri while I get everything set up in Ohio.  We aren't going to buy a house until we both have jobs and know what our income will be.  We will be living with my parents for a while and thank goodness they have plenty of space for us to move in (I hope!) And I'll also have help learning how to parent two children.  After we get back from our family vacation to Carolina Beach in late July, Josh will be going to school for Engineering and find a job.  I'll look for a job too.  I will love that family is so close and able to babysit my kid-os.  I'm just not a big fan of daycare at a young age.  So, we still have a lot of unanswered questions and not 100% sure on some things, but we are both really excited!  I don't know who is more excited honestly.  Josh is excited to get out of the military.  I will feel like I'm on vacation being back in Ohio, since that is where we have spent our "vacations" for the last 5 years.  It will be great to be around our friends again and I am really excited to get a house in the country and have a chicken coop!


How far along? 30 weeks and 1 day

Best moment this week: I've just had a generally happy week.  
Miss Anything?  Not having a giant belly.  It's now hard to put on socks. And get out of bed.
Movement:  Yes, still kicking in there.
Food cravings: Wild Cherry Pepsi.  I would drink them all day if it didn't have caffeine.  I swear, I rarely drank pop before I was pregnant. 
Sleep: Still not great.  I've been able to sleep in a little on the weekends, thanks to Josh
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not really.
Have you started to show yet: I would say so

Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? Far out! Seriously thinking I'll have a permanent outie after all this.  
Wedding rings on or off? Still wearing Josh's band
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy
Looking forward to: Josh's sister is flying in tomorrow and will be here to visit for 5 days.  Also really looking forward to the ultrasound.
