30 WEEKS!!!

Your baby's brain is getting smarter by the minute, but for mom, the only thing that smarts right now may be heartburn pain...

Your belly's increasing size is a definite clue that your baby is getting bigger every day, weighing in at over three pounds now (he'll be packing on the weight at a rate of half a pound per week for the next seven weeks). Also growing daily is his brain, which is actually starting to look like the real thing with those characteristic grooves and wrinkles. And now that your little genius can regulate his own body temperature and turn up the heat, he'll start shedding lanugo, the downy body hair that's been keeping him warm up until now.

WOW! 10 more weeks to go. It seems so insane. I go back to the doctor on Monday, and then every other week until July and then EVERY WEEK! And I hope Ben doesn't turn up the body temperature too much....MAMA'S HOTT ALREADY! Aside from being hot all the time, things are still going pretty smoothly. I can definitely feel the heat after I eat though....heartburn man....I haven't ever had it before, but boy oh boy is it uncomfortable! Within an hour after eating there I sit with that burning sensation in my chest. Talk about a pain! But in the end, it's all worth it...I just can't wait to hold my angel boy in my arms. :)

  1. Melanie! Can't believe you only have 10 more weeks!! I can totally relate to the heartburn!! I had a bottle of Tums in my purse, in the kitchen & on my night stand (for those lovely moments when I woke up out of deep sleep with raging heartburn in the middle of the night)!! The good news is it goes away as soon as baby is born! =) And you're exactly right- it is all worth it!! Motherhood is amazing.
    I'll be praying for you these last 10 weeks as you prepare for mommy-hood!
