If you haven't noticed, posting about being pregnant isn't really my "thing." Sometimes I wonder if deep down I refrain becauseI know the struggle to get pregnant and another weekly update is not what the blogging world needs. Of course I don't mean to offend. On the other hand, I do wish I did weekly updates (for my pregnancy with W for that matter as well) in order to have a comparison of feelings, weight gain, cravings, etc. Pregnancy is such a blessing, so why not celebrate it!
For the past 24 weeks, it's just been natural and a part of life. The first trimester reared its sneaky I'll-make-you-oh-so-tired-and-queasy head, and a few weeks into the second trimester brought relief. Here we are, ready to enter into the third trimester, and this is what's been happening. Before we get there, let's review:
Due: March 8
Actual Arrival: Sometime in the week preceding March 8 as we will have another C-section. (Well, considering all goes normal)
Gender: We'll all find out early March!
Guesses: Momma thinks it's a boy; daddy thinks a girl. The Sheriff? He changes his mind daily.
I'm not a huge fan of my own belly pics, but people like these sorts of things, so I grabbed the camera to snap a couple before heading out for my appointment. You can tell I'm such a rookie at these things by J's advice, "So, next time you take selfies, take the strap off!" Noted.
Pregnancy Highlights of Late:
*We've begun the moving furniture around (and out!) process to prepare for Baby's nursery. And this process? Makes me giddy!
*Speaking of a new nursery, a certain Big Brother's old nursery is in a slow conversion to a toddler's room. J and I have the discussion nightly about transitioning to a new bed. Sometimes the conversation reoccurs because I've forgotten what we decided. Mostly, I just can't decide if we should move a perfectly content in a crib toddler into a larger bed. And if we do, should we go toddler sized bed or move ahead to a full? It seems silly to go to a toddler bed if we are transitioning because it's not larger than a crib. Why move him then?
Here's where you put your two cents in, readers. Please and thank you.
*Big Brother is growing into his role and showing a bit more interest. I'll give him his own post later this week.
*I'm pregnant, and that's a beautiful, God-sent highlight in itself!
