30 weeks

What’s new with the baby?
At week 30, baby already measures about 15.2 to 16.7 inches long and weighs about 2.5 to 3.8 pounds. Her skin continues to get smoother while her brain is getting wrinklier — to make way for all that essential brain tissue. One smart baby is forming! And while your little cucumber is not even the size of a five-pound weight, she is strong enough to grasp a finger.
Food comparison this week is…
How am I feeling?
MUCH better.  I think we are out from under the sickness that would not end!  Both U and I were laid up with pinkeye and cold sickness and all that’s left now is some congestion and a little bit of cough.  It felt like it took forever for all that to go away, but when you do sickness in waves, I guess it takes longer.  Scott was unaffected this time, which is only fair, I guess, since he kept getting sick last year and I escaped it.  The pregnancy suppressed my immune system so I was an easy target.
Weight gain?
Still just 20 lbs.  Guess I’m going to hang out here for a bit, which is fine with me.  So long as the baby is growing!  I think with U I gained about 28 lbs total, by the end…we’ll see how this one shakes out.
What do I miss?  What am I looking forward to?
Not really missing anything right now.  I’m actually looking forward to taking some tours of preschools next week.  Scott will be off work, so he can go with us, too.  I’m hoping to find a good fit and get Urijah enrolled after the holidays for a couple of mornings a week.  I think we’ll meet with some separation resistance when it comes time for the first days of “school” but once he sees what it’s all about I think he’ll really like it.   I hope it will build a bit more independence and improve his language skills…plus just give him some away from home playing time and running around with other kids.

Scott is about to be done with work until after Christmas, so he’ll be working on getting U’s big kid room painted on some of these days off.  That’s our next step.

Don’t have one yet, but I’ll work on it.
