30 weeks

30 weeks means I am 3/4 of the way through.

30 weeks means I am 10 pounds away from what I want my maximum weight gain to be.

30 weeks means the baby is very still until I sit for a moment and then the manic performance of a Broadway musical ensues inside my belly.

30 weeks means I am surprised my belly is not bigger than it is.

30 weeks means 10 weeks until Christmas and I haven't started shopping.

30 weeks means I started weekly non-stress tests today, and when the doctor looked at the results he said, "It doesn't get much better than that!"

30 weeks means I love this baby with all my heart.

30 weeks means every week is a gift, and I am thankful.
