How many weeks:  30 weeks

How am I feeling: Hot, emotional, LARGE and extremely happy to be here

Doctor’s Appointment:  We go back to see the OB on June 3rd.  We go back to the MFM on June 10th (32 wks) and at that appointment we will set up an appointment to have my cerclage removed. 

Weight Gain:  I've been using my scale at home, so that I can get a more accurate (daily) amount...and it's 12 pounds!  EEEEEK!  I really only wanted to gain 15 pounds (per doctor's orders)..but it looks as if I'll go over that a bit..depending on when this little man decides to come see us!

Maternity Clothes:  I wear all maternity clothes these days.  Love it!

Baby Preparation: Nursery is ready, pack-n-play is set up in our room.  We had our first shower last Sunday!  Holy mackerel!  We are so blessed.... :0)

Gender: precious baby boy (confirmed on 7 separate u/s - so anything different would totally catch us off guard LOL)

Name:  Noah Reagan McCleskey.  It means Peaceful Little King.  Pretty sweet!

Sleep:  Sleep has never been a problem with any of my pregnancies.  I think it's because of the Prometrium.  :0) 

Best moment this week:  Seeing my tummy all lopsided because he was scrunched up on one side of my belly.  It was awesome to actually be able to see that he is in there moving around!  It was really weird too!!

Movement: A lot.  I love it.  I love being woken up by it early in the morning.  It's so sweet.

Food cravings: Still sweet fruits, mango, watermelon, strawberries

What I miss:  I miss not having heartburn, not pricking my fingers 4x's a day and I miss seeing my feet when I look down.  But, I would gladly miss them as long as I needed to so that I can get this boy here for keeps!! 

What I am looking forward to: Holding my little man - not too much longer before he gets here!!  Yikes, that reminds me - there is probably something I need to get cleaned and/or organized!!

Milestones:  Today!  30 weeks!!  Next up, 32 weeks, then 36 (removal of my cerclage) and then delivery...  We cannot wait to snuggle with this little one!!

Here is what Noah should be looking like:


  We celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary yesterday.  Our life is sweet and full of so much love.  I hope (and pray) that we are always going to remember these past 4 years - because although they were full of so much grief and so many trials - they were full of the sweetness that only that type of journey can bring.  Our love has been forged in the fires of death & loss, and has come forth shiny and strong.  Our God has been more so much more than good to us.
