-She loves my ribs. She is very fascinated with (especially when sitting in the car for multiple hours on road trips) kicking them and trying to push them up to my shoulders. It is a fun game she likes to play and she always wins.
-I am starting to get really self-conscious about my belly button. I have yet to find an outfit besides a sweater with a sweater vest over it that will hide it. People really do stare at it, it is awkward.
-As far as running goes I was able to run 42 miles last week but this week I will be starting to go down to 30 or less. Running on the treadmill here in hot Utah to avoid overheating is not nearly as fun as running around Cali was last week.
-I don’t understand why the first trimester is the hardest. I swear that almost killed me off and each week after that is getting easier and easier emotionally and physically (except for the ribs thing).
-Same cravings as always. Lemonade, fruit, donuts and meat. A new one to add to the list is fettucini alfredo, that sounds so good as I am typing this at 10 pm.
-My mom is throwing me a shower at the end of the month which I am beyond stoked for. Nothing like oohing over baby clothes and all things pink for 2 hours straight.
-As long as I am okayed by my doctor and everything goes according to plan we have decided to have the baby in Cali. I just couldn’t stand the thought of Billy not making it back to Utah in time for the birth.
-Picking up things is getting really hard to do which is perfect timing for moving;)
-We have decided on a name AND a middle name. One thing done on the checklist of 4,902,987 to do before she is born. I can’t wait to tell you her name but want to wait until she is born.
What trimester was the most difficult for you?
Did you have a baby shower?
Did you wait to tell people the name?
Anyone else have rib kicker babies?!?
