Well, we are officially in the 3rd trimester. Yikes! I have been feeling overall pretty good (metally) a little bit more uncomfortable though (physically). Things are definitely becoming harder and harder to do. I was all frustrated the other night just trying to put sheets on the bed. haha. I’m sure I am quite amusing to watch as I go about my normal daily routine with a waddle and huffing and puffing with any kind of bending action. I continue to get comments about how big I am when asked when my due date is. ugh! Just what every girl wants to hear right? “Boy, you are large looking.” I guess I have thus convinced myself that we are due for a big baby. We’ll see though, I have another ultra sound in a couple weeks which will give us a better idea of what the birth weight of the baby will be. So my appointment went good last week. Baby and me are both right on track. The glucose drink on the other hand was pretty disgusting. At first I was like “this isn’t too bad.” Kinda tasted like a unfrozen orange freezie. Then it got pretty terrible pretty quick. It is so sugary- it burns. Then you dont feel so great. All my lab results came back good though! haha Kev thought it was funny to document…
Kev has been beyond supportive through out this whole thing, we have had our ups and downs dealing with lots of changes but I think we have found our groove. I always feel lucky to have him as my husband, but this week I have been feeling particularly blessed. He is so sweet and caring about how I am feel each day. He holds my hand and protects me every time I walk down the stairs- just to make sure I dont fall, he tells me everyday I am doing a good job and that he is proud of me and how cute I am pregnant. Just hearing his voice on the phone in the afternoon can turn any day around. Ahh I Just love him so much!! I can’t believe that next week we have our 4 year wedding anniversary. Crazy!
Dear Baby Girl:
We know your name!! hehe we call you it all the time now. It’s still going to be a secret until you arrive but its very pretty. Magical even. Like you are a princess in a fairytale. We are very excited.
Your movements has been changing lately. I can tell when you move your whole body because I feel like there is an earthquake on my insides. Although its a little uncomfortable- I like to know you are doing good. You also poke hands and feet out a lot. It makes us feel like we can hold your hand. Sometimes I have to push you back down a little because it makes a lump stickin’ out the side of my belly.
I have this bunny stuffed animal that I have had since I was a little girl. Her name is Tanya Tonsil. Your Grammy gave her to me to take in the hospital when I had my tonsils out (she is in the picture above). Well, she is going to be yours now. I hope you love her as much as I have loved her. She is always there to give a little hug when you need one.
There is a band Mommy likes called She and Him and on their new cd (I am sure when you are old enough to appreciate these you will be like “cd? haha my mom is so old”) the last song is like the perfect little lullaby. I hope to sing it to you all the time. It is very sweet. It makes me think of rocking you to sleep every night singing to you and letting you know that everything is perfect. I hope you love it as much as I do.
Well little one. Next week on this day we will be back at the doctors getting to hear your little heart beat again and we can not wait!
