I also had my first class at the hospital. I took a basics of breastfeeding class and I must say that I learned a whole lot in 1 hour. I am going to another breastfeeding class tonight on going back to work and pumping and that whole deal. I have scheduled Scott & I to go to 3 classes. The first is how to care for the baby, the second is signs, stages & phases of labor and the third is a pet safety class. I would also like to take both cars up to the JTown police department to check the carseat. I want to be as prepared for all of this as I can. And plus all these classes are free at the hospital so I might as well take advantage of them.

Total weight gain/loss: I am guessing a total of 30 lbs.

Opening the Build A Bear my dad & Jean gave us.
Tyler got so many great things.... Highchair, swing, playmat, clothes, burp clothes, and so much more... My dad & stepmom went to build a bear and made a teddy bear with a UL shirt, jeans and baseball hat on. When you press the hand, it's Tylers heart beat. We had recorded it the first time we heard it and they had put it in the bear for us to always have. Jean said my dad picked out the heart, and made a wish on it for Tyler. I don't know how I didn't start crying. I can't believe my dad and Jean did that.
Total weight gain/loss: up 3 lbs from my last doctor appt.
Maternity clothes: I have stopped buying them... I am trying to buy things I can wear after I have Tyler
Stretch marks: none
Sleep: I am waking up with alot of hip pains... I can't get comfy
Best moment last week: Our 4d ultrasound
Movement: Tons... Little man is always kicking
Food cravings: I have been wanting bean soup and corn bread for the past couple weeks and finally tonight I am making it!
Labor signs: None
Belly button in or out: out
What I miss: sleeping, working out for more then 45 minutes, painting my toe nails and margaritas
What I am looking forward to: my mom's throwing me my 2nd baby shower on Sunday. I can't wait!
Milestones: 30 Weeks! I can't believe it....
Today I had my 30 week checkup. My doctor said that she couldn't tell if he has flipped or not. She couldn't tell if she was feeling his butt or head... haha. I hope his head and butt aren't the same size that it's confusing. She let me know that at my 36 week checkup, if she didn't think he has turned, we would have another ultrasound. I can't believe I am to the point where we start talking about delivery. I will now go to the doctor every 3 weeks and then after 36 weeks, I will start my weekly visits. I am now in the nervous stage of pregnancy. I am so scared of delivery and breast feeding and bringing him home. What if I do something wrong? What if I am not a good mommy? So many things run through my mind 24 hrs a day. I am going to enjoy these next 10 weeks of quite. And spend as much time with Scott as I can, just the two of us.

Here I am at 29 weeks pregnant. That means only 11 weeks till my due date and 8 weeks till I am full term. I can't believe how fast everything is going now. I feel like we just found out we were having a boy. We are having a 3d ultrasound done today and I can't wait to see who our son looks like. It will be nice to have a face with the name.
Tyler's crib is to be delivered on Thursday. I CAN'T WAIT! Once I put it together, I think it will finally hit me that this is all about to happen really soon. I hope it's as gorgeous as in the pictures.
This coming Sunday is one of my 3 showers. This is for my dad's side of the family. My cousin/ god-sister is throwing this for me and I'm so excited. She lives in Nashville, so I will take every oppurtunity to see her.
