Halfway?? I’m actually 21 weeks now, but it’s all pretty much the same. I’m to the point now where I really don’t physically notice I’m pregnant at all, which is great. No more nausea, not really any tiredness, not many aches or pains unless I’ve walked all day then I’m a little sore at night… but hey, overall I’m feeling great and doing well.
I feel baby boy move ALL THE TIME. It’s kind of driving me nuts. But it is also fun to have a constant reminded that he’s there and slowly becoming a part of this family. We talk about him often with Eva and she keeps asking more and more questions about him and the pregnancy. I need to buy a book on how to answer these questions because I want to be open and honest with her but don’t want to give her too many details since she’s only three.
We were talking about the bump and I asked her how she thought the baby got there. She said, “Uhhhh Grandma put it there probably.”
And yesterday she asked how the baby is going to come out… then answered her own question by asking, “Does it come out your belly? That’s going to break you mom!” I thought for a second and said something like uhhhh, it comes out kind of near my bottom (ah! sorry!) and she looked at me for a second and said, “EWWWW, no! It doesn’t come out your BOTTOM!” Then she laughed hysterically. Oh gosh.
We have a couple names we have in mind. The biggest and loudest contender is WATERMELON. You can guess who put that one into the running. They’re not secret, so if you ask, I’ll tell you the names but I don’t want to put them on the blog for the world to see, mostly because I know my mom hates most of them haha! But after he is named y’all better embrace it.
I’ve had more crazy pregnancy emotions and dreams. Commercials and random youtube videos online make me cry constantly. If it has a mother in it… I will definitely break down in tears. If there are dogs, children, deaths, births, I’ll lose it. I also wake up in the night to go the bathroom every night. First trimester I didn’t have that at all so I thought maybe it wouldn’t happen to me like last time. But turns out I just forgot when it started, I guess. Sometimes I can’t get back to sleep afterwards, which is difficult. But oh well. It’s getting me prepared to wake up in the night again. Eva has been a great sleeper since she was about 5 or 6 months old so I just don’t know how I’m going to handle it again!
That’s enough rambling for one day, I think. I am very excited and can’t wait for baby boy to come!
