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.


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!


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!  ;)


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.
