I'm a twenty-nine year old Army wife currently living near a large Army post. I have an unhealthy obsession with Dr. Pepper, the Internet, cloth diapers, and ridiculous TV shows. I'm a stay at home mom to two beautiful daughters, AJ and Amelia. We also have a 6 year old beagle named Abby who is as dumb as a box of rocks.

30 Weeks...

Eek!  Am I really already 30 weeks pregnant?  I feel like time literally could not go any faster than it is.  There is still so much to do in these last 10 weeks, but we're making good progress.

Physically:

I'm feeling pretty good overall.  Physically the only real complaint I have is a wicked case of heartburn.  Its like nothing can even touch it.  I've also noticed a few times that when I overdo it or don't drink enough water I have somewhat painful contractions.  They usually go away after laying down and drinking more water, which makes me less worried about it.

I had my glucose screening and iron test the week before Christmas and passed the glucose with flying colors.  My iron was another story, however.  I tested lower than my midwife would have liked, so now I'm on a supplement to try and bring my levels up.  This deficiency definitely explains why I was so tired before, and I've been enjoying the extra energy!

Mentally:

Feeling much more ready to add another member to our family.  I think this may be because its finally 2013, the holidays are over and I can focus on all things baby now.  It also helps that we decided on a first name for this sweet girl.  Sorry, we're not going to share until she arrives!  ;)

Preparedness:

The only thing we're really still lacking is clothing, as we ordered the newborn cloth diaper rental and video baby monitor last week.  We also stopped at Ikea and bought a dresser/changing table for the nursery.  I have plans to go through all my one-size diapers and get them organized and arranged so they are ready when baby gets big enough to wear them.

What I'm Looking Forward To:

I'm feeling a little anxious about having two kids, so I would say that I'm looking forward to her arrival so that I can jump right into being a mom of two kids!  A friend of mine is also throwing a little shower for me, and I'm looking forward to that as well.
