Thirty Weeks Pregnant

Thirty Weeks Pregnant

I’m thirty weeks pregnant and I can’t believe how close I am to hold my little guy in my arms. We received his furniture on Monday and we only build the commode, the thing that I will use as a changing table. It was hard and stressful not having proper expert tools and we had to postpone making the bed because I didn’t want to spoil my husband’s week off that he took to relax.

He was upset that after finishing the furniture he knew where all the imperfection were and he was upset because he wanted to do a better job and frustrated because he though he didn’t make that perfect as he would want it to be for his son. I tried to tell him it was perfect but he didn’t listen, until, few days later, I found out a similar “problem” with the TV furniture in our room, and that was made by professionals with professional tools. I will put some pictures when everything is done.

I bet now he can’t wait to finish the bed too, because I know I can’t wait to see it done. We won’t have a perfect kids room like Americans do, with blue paint and just baby furniture and baby stuff in the room, but my baby will at least have his blue bed in an outdated room, that my mother in law doesn’t let me change.

We dream of having our place and everyone to have his own room and a living room for all of us to chill, because right now we feel we live with the “owner” (mother in law) and we pay rent and we are not allowed to make changes except if the “owner” agrees with it, which she usually doesn’t. Till then I have to be happy for my baby’s blue furniture set, no matter where it is, and I really am happy.

I’m also happy I didn’t have any bad cravings this past week. After the pizza I ate in the weekend I felt happy with the usual food I had. Also, I kept myself away from too much sweets, and that makes me happy too.

Tomorrow I’m gonna go take some blood test and urine tests, and probably the glucose test everyone on WhatToExpect site is talking about. Can’t wait to see the results!

Symptoms: Just some headache and backache, acid reflux and frequent trips to the bathroom.

  • Don’t feel bad about not having a “perfect nursery” for your son. We have decided to stay in our one bedroom apartment for another year, so our baby will be rooming with us. I wanted so badly to put him in his own room and have it decorated, but this makes more sense for time and money reasons. I’m sure by the time our boys are old enough to remember their rooms we will have them decorated just right 😉

    • I keep saying the same thing to myself. I didn’t had my room, I shared it with my big brother and I also had his crib and his blue stroller and probably more clothes from him than new ones. I found this out recently, I don’t remember a thing 😛 Anyway somehow my mother in law decided to take out SOME of the old, dusty furniture, so at least we will have space even if it won’t be blue space :)) Good luck to you too and I hope in a year or two we will be sharing pictures with our boys new room 😛

Got anything to say? Go ahead and leave a comment!
