30 weeks!

SO there are my 30 week baby bellies...Im up about 12-13 pounds. This week I feel like I cant get enought to eat, so Im surely putting on pounds. I dont really have many cravings, but I love me some cereal, I eat a few bowls a day. And its so bad but if I eat another Reese Cup Easter Egg....Thankfully Easter is this Sunday, so all the Easter candy will be going away. I have started seeing the doctor every 2 weeks now. Everything is going really, really well right now. I cant believe in under 10 weeks we will meet out little guy!

His nursery is coming together, not quite done yet. These sock monkeys were fine when I was little. And his first Notre Dame Football. We still need to get the mattress. The dresser was in my nursery when I was born.

So we have started training our 4 dogs. They have been our babies for the past 4 years and we are trying to make this as smooth as transition as possible for everyone. We have set up many of Quinns things just so they are used to them by the time he is here. I also have been training them with a baby sounds CD, I randomly play in through out the day, it makes crying sounds, and just normal baby sounds.....We also are using a baby doll to train them, as you can see from the picture below our bulldog Irish already loves "the baby", not sure if he will be as keen on a real baby that crys and moves, but its a start!

Coming up is our baby shower, which I am really excited about. I am meeting with a peditrician tomorrow, hopefully I like him and its as easy as that to pick one. Other then that, not much is going on. I am offically in the nesting stage working on stuff around the house and getting everything orgainzed. I am loving the weather, Finally! This winter felt like it took 2 years, proably because I was so sick...but Im glad both sickness and winter are over. I am also taking a newborn basics class in April, I literally have almost no experience with newborns, which scared me a bit. I am really hoping that motherly instints kick in like everyone is telling me they will. I know I love him so much and will do anything to make him happy and keep him safe, so I think thats a good start, and hopefully I learn a lot from the class. Cecil and I also took an infant CPR and first aid class, I am gald we did, we learned a lot. We also did our hospital tour, and it seemed very nice (not much to compare it to), we went past the nursery and there were 3 brand new newborn baby boys in there, they were so cute, made me cant wait to meet our little one! Well at least not for 7 more weeks, when he is considered full term, but anytime after that is fine with me! Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers, to have a safe and healthy next weeks and delievery.
