The Count Down BEGINS.....
I AM freaking out a bit with all that I want to get done before the little guy gets here but I do know that if he were to come tomorrow (which he better not) it would all work out. I am a planner, kind of a control freak, I like things in order and I feel like I can't really do that TOO MUCH with the "situation" our life is in right now. I am going to do what I can to get there but we will see? We have some baby showers coming up so I am sure that is going to help out BIG TIME :) Looking forward to that fun!
As for the pregnancy, everything is going well! I feel super blessed to have easy pregnancies and I just try, in the moments where I am uncomfortable and feeling huge and miserable, to stay focused on the blessing I have with being able to be pregnant. I never ever want to take that gift for granted and never want to be a complaining pregnant woman! I do get heartburn pretty bad but have figured out that Zantac really works WONDERS, it in combo with Tums are life savers! I LOVE belly bands, stretchy pants, fitted shirts, flip flops, and sports bra's! They make my life MUCH more comfortable! I don't feel too fashionable this pregnancy and don't really care too much, more concerned about comfort for sure!
This little boy feels BIG to me! He feels boyish to me with his movements. He feels stronger than I remember Brooke being at this point. She never really made me uncomfortable when she poked or kicked around in me but HE DOES! Half the time I wonder what in the world he is doing in there? Then I remember seeing how stinking cramped he was in the ultrasound so I can't blame him for kicking so dang hard! He is active, strong, and just feels like such a different little person than Brooke was. I can't wait to meet him, see him, hold him, and get to know his personality. I am getting very curious to see what raising a little boy is like? I hear it is TOTALLY different than raising a girl? I hope can do a good job? I hope I can love him equally to Brooke, I can't imagine HOW that is possible but everybody says it is so that is good? I'm very happy to be having a boy too because I don't feel ready to share that "our little girl" spot with another girl quite yet. I am getting very curious to see how big he ends up being? Also if he is early, on time, or late? I just pray NOT 8 days early, that would be Brooke's 2'nd Birthday!
I constantly get comments on how big I am! It does not make me sad or hurt my feelings at all, there is nothing I can really do about it so why get all bummed out? I have only gained 20 lbs. well at my 29 week appointment that is where I was at and I am happy with that. I stay active, don't eat too bad, and I understand that I have a very short torso so the baby of course is going to go straight out. I just laugh at the comments I get! My sister was in amazement this past weekend while hanging out with me to hear and see all the comments I get as well. "Twins?" I have heard that a few times. "Where are you going to put 6 more pounds of baby?" I wonder the same people. "When are you due? Yesterday?" Yep that is a fun one, especially when I get to see their face when I tell them I have 10 more weeks. I even had a lady ask me "Why do you have so much longer to go when you are already so big?" Ummm??? Because that is when I am due?! Duh! So that has been fun! People crack me up with what they feel they can say to a total stranger. Good thing I really don't care!
Well let's see where this next month takes us? Looking forward to it! It's going to FLY! It is going to be BUSY! Happy 30 weeks to me!
