30 Weeks Pregnant/Bucket List Adventure

This past week was my 30th week of pregnancy! YEAH! Baby Addie and I have got this whole baby making/growing thing down at the moment I think! We are both healthy, and I got word from the doctor that I passed my glucose test and all seems to be going smoothly. Addie is still pretty active, and gets hiccups at times, which is really an interesting feeling.

I have had my first really serious craving I think….but at least it is something healthy. I want Parker’s CHEWY ICE ALL THE TIME! Sometimes I go to the store and fill the largest cup up with ice and nothing else because I don’t want any of my precious ice to melt into the liquid of the soda or tea. I don’t know what it is about the ice, but I told hubby that when it is time to go into labor we would have to make a stop and get a few cups so I can have it in the hospital too!!!! (He might just need to get me a cooler if we are going to be there for a while!)

So next week will be Week #31, which seems outrageous to think because it has gone by so fast, but (knock on wood) it hasn’t been bad so far. Everyone tells me that it only gets worse from here, so I am just thankful for each day that continues to be pleasant and pain free.


In other News: Music Midtown Trip Report

Hubby and I have just made it back in town from our recent bucket list adventure to go see the Red Hot Chili Peppers and several other bands at Atlanta’s Music Midtown festival.



-The Red Hot Chili Peppers were really good and we had a great time jamming out to them and Imagine Dragons.

-After we got off the Marta and walked three blocks to the entrance of the concert, it took us OVER 1.5 hours to get through the gate AND it was POURING RAIN!!!! We watched as a group of disgruntled fans knocked down a chain link fence and ran past the entrance gate (all while the security guard just looked on in awe) because they were tired of waiting (and probably drunk).

-It rained for the first several hours of our concert viewing experience. Luckily Waring and I had purchased ponchos before the trip, however a maxi skirt, muddy hills, and rain are not really a recipe for success.

-It took an hour waiting in line to get into a portapotty (which is not good on this pregnant bladder!) I tried to play the pregnant lady card to cut in line, but I just couldn’t bring myself to actually do it!

-It took an hour to get food and drinks! (Also, not good for my pregnant appetite! Baby Addie was NOT happy!)

-The MARTA was so packed on our way home (and we were so soaked/wet/tired) that we decided to pay the $40 to take a cab back to the hotel. Yes, it was expensive…but I would have paid more if I had to in order to get home and have a hot shower!

The Take Away Lesson:

Most bucket list adventures are tons of fun, but you have to realize that when having fantastic adventures like this….not all will go as planned. It will rain, there will be crowds, traffic, and complications. Looking back I am still glad that Hubby and I were able to have this experience, and a chance to get out of house and truly LIVE!




One thought on “30 Weeks Pregnant/Bucket List Adventure

  1. Sounds about right! I used to go to Music Midtown back when it first started (early 2000’s) and it was pretty much exactly like this! Everyone was drunk and/or high, lots of waiting around and getting lost in crowds, and it seems to always rain, rain, rain! But it’s still always fun, at least a little! πŸ™‚ I definitely would NOT have wanted to go at 30-weeks pregnant, but to each her own! πŸ˜‰ Also–I hear the ice craving is pretty common. Sometimes it means you are low on iron though. But if that were a problem for you I’m sure your doctor would have said something by now. Just be careful not to chip a tooth! πŸ˜‰
