Say it ain’t so! I’m sure I have said this many times before, but time is flying! And I know it’s not slowing down any time soon… five months in and I’m thoroughly enjoying pregnancy. Last week I felt Baby moving around for the very first time. It was pretty impressive. I sent Husband a text as soon as I felt it and now he just thinks he can just put his hand on my belly at any given time and feel what I’m feeling. That’s something that makes this experience so cool. As a woman, carrying a life in your body, that’s something that your spouse will never understand or feel. As much as I would love for him to be able to feel all the movements, it really is a bond that a mom will always have with the child that no one else will have. At this time I don’t mind the party going on in my belly but I’m sure as Baby grows it could get a little obnoxious ;)
Another thing that’s super awesome (!!!), strangers are finally starting to understand that I’m not just the chubby girl in the room. Last week I finally had someone I did not know tell me “Congrats!” while looking at my bulging bump. It made my whole world! We have our Level 2 Ultrasound- Anatomy Scan on Tuesday and I’m so excited to see our baby again! Haven’t seen Baby since I was only 8 weeks pregnant. Pray for us, we are hoping to see all 10 fingers and toes, a cute little booty, and the sweetest little face :)
I’ve been going through bags of Cheddar Jalapeño Cheetos like the apocalypse is coming. And I’m still eating at least 3 bowls of various types of cereals every day. But I’m not craving the stereotypical preggo snacks like pickles or ice cream (I’ve never been a big fan of ice cream…). I’m still working out with my trainer at least once a week in the gym, but since the weather has been pretty darn perfect here in Florida, I prefer to be on my bike cruising around the neighborhood.
I guess I should start thinking about what I’m going to do in the nursery. Here are some pics from Baby D’s personal board on Pinterest that are inspiring me lately:
^^ that grass cloth wall paper ^^
^^ grey linen curtains & that cute wooden ladder used as a shelf for blankies ^^
^^ those framed baby animal faces… swoon!! ^^
Obviously all gender neutral ideas, which to some may seem very boring, but I love it! Can’t wait to dive into this new project! Twenty weeks down, twenty more to go! Love you Baby D! Can’t wait to meet you in just a few more months!
