So far, the love I have for this baby can be equated to the love I would feel, say, for a cute, puffy, bunny rabbit that might come to our house to visit on a regular basis. I am very attached to him, and I want him to get strong and healthy...
Ah, pregnancy insomnia again. Wonderful. The weirdest thing is that I am really tired, but the minute I lay down, my eyes are wide open and I can't sleep. So I guess I'll just dither around until I'm super-exhausted!
I made a small (one and a half minutes) video montage of our journey so far to our little miracle! You can watch it here. It was fun seeing my belly progression as I went through the pictures. It's amazing how far this little baby has come!
She seemed nice, but Tim thought it was weird that she got nervous during our consultation. He said if she's used to talking to nurses and doctors she shouldn't be nervous answering our questions. But I disagree with that. This was a job interview of sorts to her.
I think every baby is a miracle, regardless of gender. Also, having tried for two years, I think I'm just ready to be a mom! I was a little worried that we didn't have any boy stuff and we had ALL girl stuff, but it's worked out just fine. Baby stuff hasn't broken our budget... yet.
I keep having dreams about Baby Boy, and I'm really eager to find out if he will look in real life like he does in my dreams. In my dreams he has a head full of unruly black hair, tan skin and the most adorable cheeks!
For most of this past week, Tim and I were on our babymoon. It was also our fifth anniversary! Where has the time gone? Feels like just yesterday we were two goofy kids in high school. Now we're two goofy adults with a kid on the way.
For the past week or so I have been really eager to get started on the baby's room and get it all put together. Then tonight, while I was in the shower, I started scrubbing away at the tile because I wanted it to be clean. Could it be the start of a nesting phase?
My goodness, the achiness of the glorious third trimester has already begun to set in. My back especially hurts so bad! It's so weird, I can actually feel the bones in there (especially around my pelvic area) moving around and grinding together.
Baby Boy has been super active lately! I think he's really trying to enjoy his last few months as my tenant. I love feeling those kicks! It's just so reassuring, and I feel like I know he's safe and warm and happy. Makes me feel safe and warm and happy, too.
