30 weeks and a kinda-versary

This weekend was mine and Chuck's 2 year kinda-versary. For those of you that don't know, we got married on Leap Day... hence the weird name.

For Chuck's present, I got him a discovery flight on a Cesna 172. It wound up being almost as much my present because I got to go with him when I didn't think I would. But he flew pretty much the entire way. I was super-impressed. I think the instructor made corrections 2 or 3 times during the whole hour. Chuck even landed the plane (which was a little bumpy... but still!). I took a million pictures on his iPhone, but have no idea if any of them turned out. We just flew around Williamsburg and Newport News, but it was neat because we got to see our house. He had a really good time.

For my present, Chuck gave me a gift card to a local spa and I get to go get a prenatal massage this afternoon. I am so super excited. My back has been killing me lately, so I'm really hoping this will help. I'll get to do one more later in the pregnancy, so that's cool too.

All in all, it was a great weekend :)

And for those of you that were wondering, I did get my 5 Guys on Friday :)

Now for the picture... I cannot believe how big I am getting. I didn't even think it was possible for my stomach to expand this much. I am flipping huge. But I try not to stress about it because it really does no good...

Just for fun, I'm going to post the 20 week and the 30 week picture.

That is quite a huge difference in 10 weeks. If I get that much bigger before 40 weeks, I will no longer be able to walk. I also think my face is getting fatter, but I'm trying not to think about that.

Overall, I'm sleeping better than I was 10 weeks ago. I've noticed that on the days that I walk the dogs, I sleep better so I'm making a more concentrated effort to do that. I also think it's just because normal everyday activities are much more exhausting. I've gotten to where I take a nap almost every day... but it's completely unintentional. I sit down for 5 minutes to check my email and the next thing I know it's an hour later. But I'm just thankful that I'm still sleeping well and pray that it lasts.

I have an appointment with the OB tomorrow. I really hope Chuck can make it to this appointment with me because I'm going to ask them all the questions I got from the childbirth class we went to. I really don't want to change doctors this late in the game, so I'm hoping I like the answers I get!! But I want to make sure that their views align with ours so that I have every chance to get the experience that I want.

That's all for now! Chuck and I are leaving town Thursday to head home for a baby shower, so expect a post about that :)

You look adorable! I love you!!! :) Wouldn't it be cool if you could see into your belly and see baby all curled up in there? Although, to be honest when Caleb came out I had this odd moment of, seriously, I was lugging that around? No wonder I was in pain! :)

Happy anniversary, Chuck and Erin. I'm very happy for the new baby you'll soon be holding.
