Baby #4: 30 Weeks!

Last week I went in for a regular appointment with my doctor, and as she's looking at my chart she said, "Looks like you're 30 weeks today." And, while I knew how far along I was, it also totally freaked me out! This pregnancy has absolutely flown by! I feel like I just found out I was pregnant, and now we're just about 10 weeks from meeting our baby girl!

Overall I'm feeling okay right now. If I do too much (or too little) during the day I end up with major lower back pain. My doctor suggested a maternity support belt and that does seem to help, but it's not super comfortable so I don't wear it all the time. I'm also really tired, but I have a hard time getting comfortable to sleep. Thankfully my other girls are good sleepers and let me sleep in. Otherwise I have some heartburn, but not too bad at this point. 

I'm still making it to the Y three to four days a week. I do group fitness classes and modify them depending on how I'm feeling. The class instructors are moms too and have been really helpful giving me ideas for how to stay active throughout this pregnancy. We've also taken a few family walks on the weekend when the weather is nice enough. There have been some really cold days, but overall the winter hasn't been too bad. 

It's still fun to feel baby girl move around in my belly. She doesn't seem as active as the other girls, but there are still 10 weeks to go. I'm sure the little kicks will get stronger over the remaining 10 weeks. Little J loves to kiss my tummy (kisses for the new baby) and Miss A likes to snuggle in to see if she can feel new baby kick. 

Over the next 10 weeks there is a lot I want to get done. Lady C is moving in to Miss A's room so that is the biggest thing we need to do, though we're going to wait another month before making that move. Lady C is still such a baby in many ways, so the idea of her in a big girl bed seems a little crazy. I'm also planning on taking Lady C's pacifier away, but we'll see when that happens. She sleeps so well right now I'm a little scared to take the pacifier away. Otherwise the nursery is mostly set up, I just need to hang things on the wall and switch to newborn clothes.
