30 weeks

213 days down and 67 days to go. Apparently that is 1,584 hours till delivery if I make it to midnight of my due date. It is getting so close, I don't want to rush it because I know once he is born I will blink my eyes and he will be 10 years old. I do hope he comes on the earlier side of my due date like my daughter did when she was born. It will be hard if I'm one of those women who goes to 42 weeks. Not to mention his size...probably would be closer to 10lbs based on current estimates.

I added a few others to this list;

How far along: 30 weeks
Weight gain: 28 lbs
Stretch marks: I have these tiny red marks on the side of my belly, he had flipped one evening from breech to birthing position and it was very uncomfortable and I woke up the next day and noticed them. The bad thing is he turned back to breech the next day.
OB Appointments Every 3 weeks still, may change after my next appointment. I will be almost 33 weeks at my next appointment.
Symptoms: Sciatica pain, insomnia, exhausted, major hot flashes, and nesting.
Sleep: Sleeping on my sides in miserable but I can't breathe when I sleep on my back and I was told that it's probably no longer healthy for me or the baby if I feel that way to sleep on my back. I wake up all night long sometimes to pee, sometimes because of a bad dream, and sometimes for no reason at all. Sleeping on my sides gives me horrible sciatica pain for some reason too.
Best Moment this Week: Well I mentioned he flipped from breech to birthing position one afternoon and then turned back the next day. I'm so determined to not have a c-section so I tried swimming again(this worked the first time) and what do you know he switched back to birthing again. He has been this position for a couple days now and hopefully he will make himself comfortable and stay that way.
Food Cravings: Hamburgers, peaches, and watermelon
Labor Signs: Had pre-term contractions about a month ago, taking Procardia to help stop those and also help with the heart symptoms from the hyperthyroid. Now all I have is some light BH contractions.
Belly Button in or out?: In
Feet Swelling?: No swelling really anywhere...yet
Wedding rings on or off?: Still on, I may make it to my due date and still be able to wear them.
Blood Pressure: Very good, never had very high blood pressure. Today at my cardiologist appointment it was 98/57
Still Working?: No, I haven't been working for about a month now, I'm not on Dr ordered bedrest but due to some of my other issues(pre-term contractions, and some thyroid issues) we decided it was best to stop working and not push myself so much.
Movement: He moves a lot, especially after eating watermelon. He also has the strongest hiccups.
Milestones: In the single digit weeks left till delivery...9weeks5days and I don't have gestational diabetes(I just recieved my results back)
When do you think you will deliver: 9/17/2010
