I can hardly believe it, but I am now in my third trimester of pregnancy! Although I feel like each week creeps by so slowly, when I look at my pregnancy as a whole, it has gone by pretty fast. Seth and I cannot wait for May to come and for the day we get to meet our baby boy for the first time.
Overall, my second trimester has been pretty easy. I felt like I was losing my mind some days, and I was definitely more forgetful than normal. I even brought Calvin to his vet appointment one week early, and they were nice enough to see us.
I have learned what heartburn feels like and I have been experiencing it quite a bit. Tums are my new best friend. Sleeping is getting a little uncomfortable and my clothes are definitely feeling snug.
We found out our baby’s gender at the beginning of January and it was such a fun surprise. Once we found out we were having a boy, we went with a theme for our nursery. With the help of Seth’s parents, the room was painted in one weekend.
Seth and I painted the trim, installed new shades, cleaned the floor, painted the door, purchased and assembled furniture, hung shelves and decorated. We are just making a few final touches, but if Baby comes tomorrow, we would be about ready to go.
I have had to cut myself off of buying clothes for our little guy. I have been really good about only buying clearance or sale items, but I think his wardrobe is better than both Seth’s and mine combined.
My new favorite feel is Baby hiccupping. He also likes to kick me to the right of my belly button. I try to get everyone’s hands on my belly for when he moves, but it’s almost like he senses it and stops. If they are patient enough, they eventually feel him give a good kick.
I am anticipating delivery day. I wonder where I will be when I know it is time. Will I be at work or at home? Will my water break in public? Will it be a rainy day or a starry night?
I cannot wait for this moment. I think when it actually happens, it will feel so surreal. When we leave the house for the last time, I will say goodbye to the dogs and know that the next time I walk in the house, they will be greeting their new little buddy. Life will be different, but it will be good.
