Less than 7 weeks to go (that feels good to say).
*We had a doctor’s appointment and everything is looking great. We will have appointments every 2 weeks from here on out. We still don’t know if we are having a boy or a girl… I am shocked over how I am sticking to this decision to wait.
*In the ultrasound the baby was sucking it’s thumb which was so so cute to see.
*I’ve never in my life appreciated the temperatures dropping as much as I do right now.
*My sister’s sister-in-law just had her baby IN THE CAR on the way to the hospital. I can’t even imagine!
*A bit of nausea has come back and it’s usually in the early afternoon. I had already forgotten what the first trimester felt like but this has given me a nice reminder (If you are in that first trimester and feeling so sick right now.. I hope you start feeling better asap) My heartburn is back too but I could probably control it more with what I eat but that’s hard to do when just one thing sounds SOOOO good in the moment:)
*It’s getting difficult to try and carry Skye with the bump.
*The baby is getting closer to 4 lbs now.
*This baby can kick HARD lately. Every now and then it makes me gasp and really surprises me… you can even see his/her little foot on the outside of my stomach!
*I’m still running and still not needing a belly band which is so strange to me because I NEEDED one for both Brooke and Skye in order to continue running. It always takes me a bit of time to get myself motivated to start the run but once I get outside and moving I am always so glad that I started.
*We were on our way to the park one day and I decided to drive-thru and get some french toast to eat at the park… Instead they were gone within 140 seconds of them entering my car.
*Speaking of syrup… do you ever wake up and find syrup on your nightstand? Andrew made me pancakes at midnight the other night and they hit the spot.
*There is not enough money in the world that you could pay me to eat a hamburger right now. I don’t know why but at this point I can’t even handle seeing one (and I usually love them). I miss liking candy too:)
*We moved the recliner into our room from Skye’s room because it feels so good to just sit back reclined at this point.
*During my run today, the baby just kicked out it’s foot (you could see the little bump from the outside!) and kept it there for a few miles without moving it. Finally, he/she got tired of doing that and readjusted.
*Skye happily joins me for kick counts throughout the day. They kind of freak her out when she can feel them too ha.
*I finally bought something for the baby! For some reason I had the strongest desire to buy ALL of the baby products when I was pregnant with Brooke and Skye but this time around either I feel confident that we already have everything we need or I just feel like babies don’t really need as much as I always thought they did. I don’t know what has changed in me but my bank account is very thankful for this ha. PS having a baby on Andrew’s work insurance vs my previous self-employed insurance is a different ballgame and I am very grateful for Andrew’s job at the hospital.
If you had to choose just a few things that you feel are a MUST for a new baby, what would they be (I need to make sure that I really am ready ha)!
Anybody reading have a story about having your baby anywhere other than where you were planning on having your baby?!
