Cleaning frenzy... (+ Ryker's birthday!)

OR what people call it in the preggo world... nesting. I am all over it. Today was Ryker's 5th birthday and he wanted to stay home with me today. It started out pretty lazy, then we went to get a late lunch and go by Dollar General. When we got back I started cleaning and organizing my room, it was my week's goal. Main reason is the boy's birthday party is Saturday, but I also need to do it before I have this baby at home. When Steven and the other kids came home I put them to work too, although I wouldn't say to the extreme I was. We took a short break after dinner to go get some ice cream for the birthday and when we got back the kids were enthralled with Ryker's new DS lite so no more cleaning for them. I just in the last few minutes got done with our room. I even made Steven clean the ceiling fan because I couldn't reach it with a chair and the stool was too dangerous for me at this point. While I am pretty tired I feel pretty good. My iron was back to normal range this last appt. Everything else continues to look good as well. Just a few more weeks... it's hard to believe.

More down...

This is what I do on Saturdays when I am bored. 40 homemade baby wipes and some wash cloths. I made my first baby blanket a couple of Saturdays ago.

30 weeks!

With Fall being right around the corner it's starting to sink in that time is drawing close. Yesterday I had my gestational diabetes screen and my midwife also tested my iron. I do not have GD, thank goodness, but my iron is a tad low. Everything else continues to look good. He is still growing like a weed and moving around a lot. I have gained about 17 pounds this far. I need to take another belly shot, so I will try to do that tomorrow. I will post it as soon as I can.
