30 weeks

We just got back from Disney World on Tuesday. A GREAT time was had by all!! Allan was able to make it down for the weekend, which made it more special. It was hot and humid, but we all made the best of it and sought out shows with A/C!! I even got to meet Tinkerbell!! Heehee! As much fun as the trip was, I'm glad to be back home, off my feet, and sleeping in my own bed.

Rachaels' "first" pair of ears!

Always the princess!

This was in our hotel lobby.

Now for the baby update:

Your baby's brain is getting smarter by the minute, but for Mom, the only thing that smarts right now may be heartburn pain.

These days you may feel as if you've got a flamethrower in your chest. Heartburn is one of the most common (and annoying) pregnancy ailments and here's why: The same pregnancy hormones that cause your body's pelvic muscles to relax so you can deliver your baby also relax the ring of muscle that separates the esophagus from the stomach. The upshot? Food and digestive juices can head upstream from your tummy into your chest and throat — hence, the infernal inferno. Your expanding uterus, now exerting pressure on your stomach, only fuels the fire. And speaking of your belly, its increasing size is a definite clue that your baby is getting bigger every day, weighing in at over three pounds now. Also growing daily is his brain, which is actually starting to look like the real thing with those characteristic grooves and wrinkles. And now that your little genius can regulate his own body temperature and turn up the heat, he'll start shedding lanugo, the downy body hair that's been keeping him warm up until now.
