30 Week Pregnancy Update

Holy hell, there are only 10 weeks (or so) left till Jayce is here! Although I love being pregnant, I know pregnancy is pretty much downhill from here, so I'm just ready for him to get here!

The double chin struggle.....if you only knew what 40 other pictures I took looked like!
Weight Gain/Loss: Fat...let's just go with that. Ok....if I'm being completely honest.... close to 30 pounds. I ballooned at this point with Layne also, it's just depressing!
How Far Along: 30 Weeks + 1 Day
Fruit of the Week: Baby is the size of a butternut squash and hovering around 3 pounds.
Baby Buys: Well I daringly took all 3 kids with me by myself to to Nebraska Furniture Mart and bought a dresser/changing table this weekend. I only had Dayton run away and end up across the store twice, so that's a success! Pregnant lady with a one year old on her back and 2 year old in a stroller running like mad across the store yelling at a child that won't respond.....yeah I'm sure it was amusing! Also we got a new ceiling fan for the nursery...but that's boring!
Movement: When I say that he is in my ribs, I literally mean IN MY FUCKING RIBS. I'm not exaggerating at all when I say I say that I can't take deep breaths, sitting straight up is impossible, and when he kicks it literally knocks the wind out of me.
Dreams: My subconscious is apparently wanting me to be a trained spy/assassin.....that or it's telling me to change my DVR/Netflix setup.
Position: Guessing head down, but who knows!
Cravings: Cinnamon raisin bread, because it's delicious!
Shit that Sucks: My body is on FIRE, like all the time! I might have had just a mini freak out moment while writing this, because I was hot and couldn't get my shirt off fast enough. No, I'm not writing this topless......I do have a tank top on!
Struggles: Gravity is not my friend. Things that are on the ground, tend to stay there until they annoy me to the point of braving the chance of throwing up when bending over (thanks heartburn/acid reflux) or being so out of breath I have to lay down for a bit.
Successes: I passed my glucose test since I wrote last! Only had to take the 1 hour test, and apparently the bowl of ice cream I had the night before didn't effect it!
Mood Swings: Not so much mood swings as rounds of anxiety. When we are having really shitty days at home with children swinging from the rafters, I may start to cry wondering what I will do with another monkey in here!
Milestones: Jayce and I get to attend my sprinkle shower this weekend! I'm so excited to see all my friends and family on Sunday!
Funny: It's funny and it's cute! Kayden is officially obsessed with my belly! Every day he brings me a variety of toys, usually dump trucks, cars and balls, and puts them on my belly for the baby. He tells me, "Baby play trucks." He'll be disappointed when he comes out and isn't able to do the things right away that he hopes he will!
Inside the Hormonal Brain: Prepping is well under way and I might be obsessed with it! All baby furniture is together, clothes got washed yesterday, and now decorating the walls is underway. My husband's honey-do list seems to grow by the day, which I'm sure doesn't thrill him, but I don't care. I'm convinced (which will probably jinx me) that I won't make it to my due date, and therefore everything needs to be ready right now......if he only understood!
