30 weeks and counting...

Today we officially hit 30 weeks and hopefully we just have 8-9 weeks left, I do not want to hit the 40 week mark with this one! We all know I love to plan so I might just have to take control and schedule an induction. An induction would allow for a couple of things, I would have a plan in place for Kaden and how to get him to and from daycare, my mom wouldn't have to take off any unexpected days to get up here to help out, and family would be able to figure out when they would like to come for a quick visit. It isn't always easy when family is 2+ hours away, if I called at 2 am, my mom would be on the road heading up here, and I wouldn't want that. As with Kaden, we will give Logan plenty of time to come on his own but if he isn't here by May 6th, I think it might be time to say hello face to face. May 6th is just the date I have in mind, I haven't discussed this with my doctor yet so we will just have to wait and see...

In other baby news, well sort of baby related, I bought my first post-pregnancy gift today-Belly Bandit!! I wish I would have known about this the first time around and can't wait to wrap it around my post-baby body and see if it will help tighten and bring things back to the way they were prior to Logan, heck maybe even prior to Kaden! I have heard wonderful things about the Belly Bandit and Kourtney Kardashian endorses it so why wouldn't it work! I will certainly have to keep you all posted but from what I have read and been told, you put this on 24 hours after giving birth and then keep it on all day and night. It should help with retaining water, being bloated and help give you better posture while breastfeeding. For those soon to be mommies and for those who are planning your next pregnancy, I will let you know how it works and what type of results I get from it. If you ask me though, if it helps me not look 7 or 8 months pregnant after giving birth, it will be worth it. I had no idea that one would still look like that!!!

One last thing and I don't want this to sound like I am complaining and frankly this is a little embarrassing but I just have to get this out there. Why is that every time I sneeze, I must cross my legs to ensure that I don't pee my pants?!?!? It wasn't too bad with Kaden but this time around, it is horrible and what makes it worse, Justin just laughs. The other night, I started laughing at Kaden and then started choking and I am sure we can guess what happened next. Try choking, laughing and crossing your legs, not the easiest thing to do. I really don't mind being pregnant, do I love it like some women do, NO but I do cherish the experience and I tend to have pretty easy pregnancies but the lack of bladder control, can move on! I will take swelling any day...
