The girl is 30 weeks old today! I can definitely feel her more now. She is very squirmy at times. I don’t know what she does in there sometimes. 🙂 I have had a few moments where I felt a leg or an arm run across my belly. So strange and amazing at the same time!! I love it!! I have not actually seen it yet though, so I am still waiting for that moment.
My belly does feel larger as well. I am having some aches in my belly, hips, as well as my back. Eating is still a discomfort. I can hardly eat anything. It’s definitely more challenging now that I am getting closer to the end. But my feet have not swollen at all for the past few days, which makes me very happy. 🙂
I did not get a chance to bike again this past week. I was all ready to go on the ride last Wednesday, but then it started to rain. The chance of rain was only 20%. So much for that!
I did spend a lot of time in the garden on Saturday and Sunday… more like about 7 hours. With the help of my mom and Joel, we were able to finish weeding and mulching all three garden beds. I am so relieved that we finished, since I was worried that I was not going to have a pretty garden this year. The weather was perfect this past weekend too, so that made it more enjoyable.
I also managed to go for a 45 minute walk with Kristin on Sunday afternoon around Park Ave. We walked past a few nice gardens. Kristin showed me the most amazing clematis. The flowers were as large as my hand! I have never seen the flowers so large before. Just beautiful!
The last thing that I would like to mention is Mother’s Day. Joel came up to me on Sunday morning and handed me a card. I was taken back by it since I was not expecting a card. The card was the most touching! My emotions got the best of me (yes, again!). That was so sweet of him. Joel’s mom also sent me a card, which was also super sweet. A few other folks wished me a happy mother’s day too, which was surprising. I guess I do not consider myself a mom just yet. But I suppose that I am a mom. Even after all these months I still have that moment when I think and say to myself that I cannot believe that I am actually having a baby. 🙂
