Weeks 25-30 Oops!

So at 26 weeks I started having a lot of fluid leakage.  TMI?? I didn't know what it was, other than I knew I wasn't peeing my pants all the time, haha! Anyway, we ended up going to the hospital just to make sure it wasn't amniotic fluid. They monitored him for a while, checked everything out, ran a bunch of tests and everything looked good and after a few hours we went home. The next day they had me go and get my fluid levels checked just to be sure he had enough and those too looked great. I got to sneak a peek a baby boy too so that was fun! And the leaking stopped after a few weeks and we still don't know what was causing it. Really weird! 
Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 30 weeks 
Size of baby: Baby is the size of a large cabbage
Maternity Clothes: I have two pairs of maternity pants that I wear. They are comfortable but I don't love them. Definitely looking forward to buttoning my old skinny jeans again.
Gender: It's a BOY!!! Yale Maguire Pack.
Movement: He moves a lot and seems to like music and when the girls' talk to him. 
Sleep:  Sleeping great with Unisom.
Weight Gain:  17 pounds. Annoying but whatever.
What I miss: Sleeping on my stomach. Having more energy--I'm so tired lately!
Best moment this week: after a lot of hard work and a couple of late nights we finished Yale's nursery and it looks amazing! 
Cravings:  So the past couple of weeks I've needed lots of caffeine. I go every day and get some type of mixed beverage from the swig (usually Diet Mt Dew) in order to make it through the day. Oreos. Lots of Oreos. Milkshakes. Hamburgers. Taco Bell. You know, really healthy stuff, ha!
Symptoms: Nesting. Like crazy nesting. Tired alllll the time. And my back pretty much is in constant pain. 69 more days, I can do this!!!
