Bump Date: 30 Weeks

Since when do I only have ten weeks of this pregnancy left? A friend of mine once shared that she feels as though every one's pregnancy's fly by except hers. Well I can say without question that I do not share that sediment! It felt like my first pregnancy flew by and this one is no different. Ten weeks to go just seems so unreal!
How Far Along: 30 weeks; Baby Boy #2 is due May 10th (although little chance of going that long)
Weight Gain: About 12 pounds (no weight gain since my last appointment!)
Baby Is: 17 inches long, 3.1 pounds
Cravings / Aversions: I love little tiny oranges (cuties, clementines, yes please!). I have one every night as my "bedtime snack". And yes it's sugar-y but better than ice cream right? I am also eating a lot of boiled eggs and avocado, and still loving a good, crisp, dill pickle. So typical! The only aversion that I have overcome is bacon! A few weeks ago I could not stand the smell of bacon cooking on the stove but this weekend I not only smelled it without issue but I ate some too!! 
How I'm Feeling: Good! I mean I'm tired. And I feel like I weigh a metric ton. But overall I'm feeling pretty good. But no real surprise here... I am one of those women who actually like being pregnant.
What I Miss: Still just wine. But it isn't something I think about much. There will be plenty of time for wine. And after all, growing a baby is important. Oh and I miss my waist.
Getting Ready: So. Much. Happening. Parker's big boy furniture is scheduled to arrive next week! He will start taking his morning and afternoon naps in his new big boy bed and after a few weeks we'll move him in there for night time sleep as well. I'm working on a few things for his room but don't plan to do too much in the way of decorating since we'll only be here in Kansas for a few more months. We're picking out a car seat, adding a second camera for our monitor, and just generally making plans for changes. I'm learning that there is a lot that goes into having a baby join your family when you've already got a baby!
Best Part: We have a name!! Naming our baby boy is a major milestone. Whew! We love using his name and we can't wait to meet Baby Grant Henry.
Worst Part: Ugh. My Spider Veins. They are so bad in my lower legs that I can't even stand up out of our bed until I have compression socks on my feet. I make a point of sitting with my feet propped up at some point during the day. Mainly because if I don't, I regret it later in the evening. The silver lining is that as soon as Grant Henry is born, these spider veins of mine will start to disappear. Thank God! I can't take them much longer!
What Parker Thinks: That Baby Grant is in his belly.
What Honey Thinks: He is so excited about having two sons! He has a brother and knows what a special relationship that is. Plus now he'll have two hunting buddies!
What Cash Thinks: Having done this baby thing one time before, Cash knows we have to rest up. He has decided to join me each and every time I stop and put my feet up. Cash never missed a diaper change or night time feeding with Parker. I have a feeling he will be the same way with Grant! (Such a good big dog brother!)
So excited to meet our baby boy and still unable to believe that moment will come within the next ten weeks!
