Oils, dates and shots OH MY!

A couple weeks ago I got the funniest text from one of my friends who was catching up on the blog. 

It said, "Hey!  Just took a glance at your blog....  couldn't read all of it, but get that shitty cream off your belly!  Use oil instead (have you read the ingredients in that stuff)??  Let's talk tomorrow.  ASAP.  I got your covered!  So important to keep the glamorous stretch marks off your body.....  I don't have a single one!"

I, of course, laughed hysterically (and maybe you just have to know my friend) but it was good stuff.  I am telling you, I have such a bad ass friend group.  Super blessed!
She was so sweet to give me a variety pack of oils.  They are totally awesome, contain no toxins and don't smell like chocolate!  Hello luxurious oils, goodbye shitty chocolate lotion! 

Today was my 30 week check up!  Only 9 weeks to go until the Ninja makes his way into the crazy world.  Our C-section is scheduled for January 10th unless the little guys decides he would like to make his grand appearance sooner.  I was assured by my doctor if he does she will do everything to stop the labor- she wants him cooked!   
Everything is measuring great despite my little belly (though I do feel like a whale).  The nurse practitioner was listening to his heartbeat and said, "wow, he sure is happy in there".  I honesty couldn't agree more.  He is going Bob the Builder style in there remodeling so he has more room to practice  his dope Ninja skills.  He keeps trying to go for my ribs but this Momma isn't having any of  that noise.  Tonight while teaching class though, he got real close.  I gently pressed his foot down. 
Today at my appointment they gave me a flu shot.  I have never had one before, but after talking to the nurse practitioner I know it is what is best for the Ninja.  I can get the Whooping Cough shot now or wait until delivery.  She encouraged to wait until the day of delivery for the Whooping Cough, so that is what I will do.  I am only having a couple side effects from the flu shot, some mild chills & just a hazy feeling, so that is good.

Monday I go in for the steroid shot for my lame hand.  Fingers crossed this will bring me at least a little relief.  The pain has become so bad at night I want to cry and I am not kidding. 

Here are some fun questions I found on a forum the other day (in case you are curious)! 

How far along?  30.5 weeks

Baby's Size:  Cucumber. He is around 15-17 inches long and weighs 2.5-4lbs.  He can now grasp things with his hands (Lord help my belly and ribs), he can hear outside the womb (we will start playing him specific music in the morning and night- he already gets to hear a ton of it while I am at work).

Total Weight Gain:  35lbs.  As stated above, whale-like feeling, I am only 5 ft. tall!

Maternity Clothes:  No, but I don't know how much longer this will be a no. 

Sleep:  MAYBE 3 hours total a night.  :/

Best moment this past week:  My wonderful, supportive husband and hearing the Ninja's heartbeat. 

Miss anything?  My friends and family in other states.  Oh, and WINE! 

Anything making you queasy or sick?  No, I am just really really tired from the lack of sleep.  It is definitely catching up with me. 

Craving anything?  No, I just like to eat everything (besides chocolate).  I eat all the time.  I'm eating right now.  It's redonk.

Belly button in or out?  1/2 way in, 1/2 way out- OMG

Wedding rings on or off?  Off - been that way for awhile- boo.

Happy or Moody most of the time?  WATCH OUT, this Momma is ready to pounce (Eye - and actions- of the Tiger)?!?!

  1. LOL...all this sounds strangely familiar. Except you poor thing have the additional hand problem.

    I'm so jealous; the first time around I had to start wearing maternity clothes at 15-16 weeks.
