Had my 30 week visit on Monday. Have gained 15 lbs. No protein in urine. BP 143/78. Everything looking great.

Fiona is growing every more increasingly active. She woke me up in the middle of the night kicking for the first time, and some of her movements actually hurt now rather than being merely startling, uncomfortable or weird. LOL

I have returned to being as exhausted as I was in the very beginning, that sick swimmy tired feeling like you just can't keep your eyes open. Bleck. I am having a lot of breathlessness as well. I am no longer cold all the time. :( I was hoping that symptom would linger. The night sweats have returned! Boo hiss. Oh well, at least it took this long to start.

Had a good convo with the doc about what to expect re: delivery since I delivered 10 years ago and it was under emergency conditions. He said that while I would have to have the baby's heart monitored every fifteen minutes or so, I could walk around and etc. as long as the heart rate stays normal. He said I can opt for a port and won't need an immediate IV. I will not have a catheter unless I have a C-section. They do not routinely do episiotomies either. I also told him I am super afraid of getting blood clots given what happened to my college roommate last year and what happened to Josh. So we talked about what we can do to prevent them: getting ambulatory as soon as possible and remaining so, compression socks if I have surgery, and starting an aspirin regimen post-partum which is okay even if I am nursing. He also explained to me what a blood clot developing in my leg would feel and look like so I can stop freaking out every time I have a twinge that I'm getting deep vein thrombosis. I'm sure it's far from the most ridiculous convo he's had with a pregnant lady. LOL

Mom and Dad are coming tomorrow, and we'll finally get the closet functional. Nesting can thus recommence. They are also bringing a lot of the loaners from my brother and sister-in-law, so that's awesome. :)

One more point of good news--another friend is pregnant! She's fourteen weeks along (she actually found out she was pregnant the last time we visited them LOL) and this time with a singleton instead of twins (which I'm sure is a relief). I am so glad my two best girlfriends are pregnant at the same time I am. Our babies (all four of them! wow!) will be so close in age, and I predict the playdates will be epic. LOL
