Today I am 30 weeks pregnant! It feels like a big milestone to be into the 30's. I know I still have a few months to go, but the reality that we will soon have a baby boy in our lives is setting in and I am so freaking excited. I cannot wait to meet him and get to know him. That being said, I still want him to cook for a while longer.

Our neighbors told us about some trails and lake close by our home. Only 15 minutes away and we had no idea this place existed. We hiked a bunch in the woods and Lincoln got to swim in the lake. I've never seen a dog have so much fun. Jax is totally disinterested in the water, but liked playing with the other dogs. My husband and I certainly got a solid workout hiking. Sunday night we headed out to the Rusted Root concert. It was a spontaneous thing because we just bought tickets Friday night and I'm so glad we did! It was an outdoor concert and the music was fantastic. I was definitely tired Monday morning though. Totally worth it. It was our baby boy's first concert!
We had our second birthing class last Thursday night. We learned all about the first symptoms of labor and what to expect. We watched a few more births as well. I really have not made solid decision about whether I will need an epidural or any other sort of medication to get me through the labor process. My first choice is to get by completely natural though. That being said, I cannot predicts how labor will go for me, so I'm not taking anything off the table. With each birthing class, I gain more confidence in my ability though.
|Last Friday's work outfit. Maternity dress from Old Navy. I wore a cardigan over it to work.|
My work baby shower is tonight! After this week I'm going to take stock of any crucial items we need and go get them. At 30 weeks, I'm really feeling great and I'm so thankful for that. 10 weeks to go, baby boy!
