Week 30: Pregnancy rears its head

Last night was awful. Either it is a resurgence of my illness from earlier in the week or pregnancy has finally reared its ugly head. Probably a combination of both. I haven't eaten anything since last night and I still have heartburn. How is that possible?

And poor DH was woken up every 10 minutes as I shifted position trying to find a spot that was comfortable. I did not succeed. I ended up surrounded by something like 20 pillows trying to get pressure off the belly. Is this what I have to look forward to for the next 10 weeks???

According to my weekly newsletter, the little one is now the size of a cabbage, weighing about 3 pounds. Whoever writes the newsletter must love cabbages because I think there have been several other references to that particular vegetable. It's kind of scary to think that when I was born I was only 3 pounds 2 ounces! And Mommy, Esq. was even smaller. In a way it makes me feel more comfortable. I know I survived being born over two months early so my baby will get that much stronger and healthier. And then she can be wicked smart, make lots of money and let her mom retire :-)

DH and I have another daycare appointment tomorrow so I'll be sure and post an update next week about our challenges in securing the best care for our baby. Aside from that, I'm settling in for a good day of football and DH is making homemade chicken soup. What gender role reversal? Here's to an all PA Super Bowl - go Steelers and Eagles!

Hearburn is here to stay - but goes away as soon as you have her. AVOID MILKSHAKES - thought they'd be great but gave me the worst heartburn. I ate about 4 tums before bed each night and "slept" upright (lots of pillows propping me up). I was 2 lbs 6 ounces, I thought you were 3 lbs or just under and Allie was 3 lbs 1 oz, no?
