Wow, I have really been distracted lately. Three weeks since my last post, oops! Sorry folks!
I am 15 weeks and counting. According to What to Expect the baby is the size of an avocado now. All these fruit analogies makes me hungry! I officially have a baby bump. There is no doubt about it, I’m pregnant. I’m very relieved that I am showing because before I just looked like I ate too much and my clothes wouldn’t fit. I am wearing all my old maternity clothes and I can’t wait to go get a few new items.
I had my doctors appointment two weeks ago and all is well. I haven’t gained any weight yet and the babies heart rate was perfect! I will go for my four month check next Friday.
We had our dinner with the parents and it was amazing! They got to meet my son and they loved him! My son had so much fun playing with them. He kept following the intended father around the house yelling his name and wanting to be picked up. It was so precious to see them with my son. They will definitely make wonderful parents!!
This pregnancy has been so different from my last one physically. I am starting to notice more and more that it is emotionally different too. Obviously with my son I was excited and planning his nursery, and shopping for clothes all the time. With this baby I am just going about my daily life as if nothing is different. There is no planning to do, only to take care of myself. Many people were so worried that I would become attached to this baby, or it would be hard for me. I have no “attachment” to this baby in the since of I want to keep it. I can’t wait to call the parents about their babies first movements, and hiccups. I can’t wait to deliver this baby so it can be with it’s mommy and daddy! I want to see their joy of being new parents. This is why I am doing this, to make them happy and to give them this precious gift. I am really loving this journey!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I promise it won’t be three weeks in between posts again!
