**I just want to start this off by saying, thank you. So much. My family felt the prayers that were offered up for us, my grandmom and my poppop. We felt them, so much so. This last week has been a whirlwind and honestly? I feel kind of like a freight train hit me. Lots of travelling, lots of intensive family time, lots of goodbyes and cries and hugs and hand holding. My Poppop passed away on Wednesday evening at 8:30pm. He lived a great life, and was an amazing guy, which makes his lost presence hard to handle, for sure. I'm not sure when/if I'll write about this any more--but I didn't want to ignore it after Tuesday's post. So, thank you.**
I want to update on this baby. I just feel like I need to. Besides, we're at a milestone, people! 30 WEEKS. *blink blink blink* How did this happen? Some days I have moments of OMG I CAN'T BELIEVE THERE WILL BE A BABY HERE SO SOON. Other times, I have moments of, TEN MORE WEEKS? I'M GONNA DIE. So, to say my emotions are a little all over the place about this--okay, it's a bit of an understatement. Plus? I've done a whole lot of NOTHING for this poor kid.
Everything seems right on track. She's hiccupping multiple times a day (which I have to say, drives.me.crrrazzy), just like her sister did. Which I know means one thing--I need to stock up on gripe water now. Holy cow, Emeline had hiccups as a newborn so often, and lots in the womb--so we're doomed. She moves around most at night when I'm sitting still. Just like Emeline, my walking around, daily-routine stuff keeps her pretty much (what seems) asleep, then when I want to sit down and relax, my belly is party time.
I passed my glucose test with flying colors. My doc told me I'm the picturesque pregnant woman, my levels of everything are always good, no blood pressure issues, no protein in urine, passing the glucose test & such--now let's just hope I somehow didn't jinx that. My hips are sore. I FEEL more pregnant these days. But then sometimes I'll still have moments of not feeling pregnant at all. It's weird. I am, though, starting to get more uncomfortable in the ribcage area. I think she's just getting bigger.
Meh. We're good, no swollen ankles or feet yet. But I'm up 19-20lbs or so. Still in all my size small maternity stuff, so I don't feel too bad. But I have already mentally signed up for multiple 5K's and weight watchers :) Ha. We'll enjoy the rest, give myself a few weeks, then it's back to business in the body arena.
The Big Sis
She's the best. Rubs my belly unprompted. Talks about being a 'sister'. Tells people her name. Asks if she can talk to her through the "hole" (my belly button), and gives her "huggies & keeses".
We're just soaking up our time of just her in our lives. That's my main focus this summer.
10 weeks to go!! eeee!
Came across some photos of me at 30 weeks with Emeline, so I decided to mimick it this time to see the difference. I think I'm a bit smaller this time around. You be the judge!
