The Baby Belly-Week 30

Our Baby-to-be weighs approximately 3 pounds now and is nearly 16 inches long! Her skin is changing from red to pink as fat deposits under her skin. I cannot believe that we'll meet our baby in only 10 more weeks!


The past couple of weeks have been tremendously hard on me, both physically and emotionally. Sometimes I feel like The Muffin and Big Daddy are trying to drive me crazy. My body aches...a lot. I try not to complain, but there are times when I feel so bad I could cry. I never felt like this when I was pregnant with Muff. My belly has also grown in the past couple of weeks and I feel huge. Big Daddy even commented this morning that I had gotten more round in the past couple of days. I guess I should say,"Yay!!". I feel like a cow. No offense to cows, because everyone knows that I heart cows...especially brown ones.

No matter how bad I feel, I am very much aware of what a sweet little blessing this is growing in my belly. I'm looking forward to getting a preview of our baby's face at the 36 week ultrasound. I continue to wonder if "it" is really a girl, so I hope to get confirmation. I've also found myself worrying about the baby's health more. There are SO many sick babies everywhere I turn. For the first time in this pregnancy, I'm worried less about Vasa Previa, VCI and my placenta than I am about everything else.

Before I even read your post, I was thinking your 30-week old belly looks Great! You look great! For me, I was always checking out my butt in the maternity jeans. :) So glad that nasty 'ole vp has taken a back seat for you, yay! Wow, only 10 more weeks...I'm sure you don't feel exactly the same, but for those of us who have been following and praying, it has flown! How's the house-selling going? Is your hubby still at home, or on the the new job yet? Hug your little vp miracle for me. :) Mine is sound asleep right now. :)

So beautiful! I would love to join the Vasa Previa foundation. In fact I just did an inservice for the girls at work about it. Even our anesthesiologists said that they learned something. I can't wait to be more involved!

The muffin and our daughter Brynn are two beautiful Vasa previa girls....two partners in crime...both with a message to share!

Just was wondering if I could link over to you and your story...it's a great one and I want to share it with more people!

TEN MORE WEEKS! Ahhh! So exciting to see baby girl's face in just a few more months.

And you look great! I definitely understand though, that even if your mind knows you look fine your heart is just a mess right now.

For some reason 2nd pregnancies tend to be more achy, at least according to some OB nurses I've talked to!
