I can't believe that I'm 30 weeks already! Time is definitely flying by. Well, except for these past few days. Pregnancy wise, I feel really good for 30 weeks. I was sleeping well. Just a bit tired, but happy. Then I got this nasty head cold. It just won't go away! I had one almost completely sleepless night, and a few that were completely frustrating. You know it's bad when you can't even get the neti pot to work.
Ugh. I'm hoping I'll make it to urgent care tonight before it closes. I talked to a local Pharmacist who suggested something called Corisidin, but last night was almost as sleepless as my worst night, and I can't handle it anymore! So I went back to the Pharmacy and the Pharmacist said I should go to urgent care, and if they don't give me a prescription, to come back for Sudafed. He said at this point there is no risk to the development of the baby, but a very tiny risk of premature labor. Sigh.
Anyway, back to being 30 weeks. Baby continues to be very active, poking and squirming all throughout the day and night. It's such a reassuring feeling for me :)
I'm just nervous knowing that there are only 10 weeks left, and the nursery is still a toy room. I just want everything to be finished, so I can stop thinking about it! Otherwise, I don't have a lot left to do to prepare for this baby. A few little things to purchase, like baby lotion and shampoo, some warm socks, etc.
I'm so grateful for every day of this pregnancy. Especially thinking of Christmas, and all that it means. I think about Mary and how she must have felt, riding on a donkey while obviously ready to have a baby. Can you imagine? And then giving birth in a stable. Not exactly what we are used to! It sure makes the story feel more personal.
Speaking of Christmas... last Saturday we were invited to an ugly sweater Christmas party. What a blast! Fun games, tons of food, and great friends. Thanks to Nat & Candice for inviting us! It's still up in the air though, who really had the ugliest sweater!
