Lots of Kicks on Week 26
As you probably could tell from my previous post, I got a little frustrated this weekend with the balloon under my shirt. But I have wonderful friends and family who really helped me get over it and realize I only have 14 weeks left! (On the downside, the next 14 weeks I will be growing like crazy.) But fortunately my attitude has changed a bit and I’m okay at the moment. Also, the new jeans I bought last night (pictured below AND on clearance) helped a lot.
Oh, and don’t mind the repetitive shirt that you saw in the last baby bump photo… I promise I wear other clothes!
Just in case you’re interested, I thought I’d share four things I’ve learned about myself lately:
- I can no longer bend over. Some angles are still possible, but for the most part I have to try to maneuver awkwardly or get down on my knees.
- The baby controls my sleep schedule. It reminds me of how my mom would say, “I’m up… everyone’s up!”
- They weren’t kidding when they say your feet will grow when you’re pregnant! I can’t fit into one pair of my shoes anymore and the other ones are getting pretty snug. It’s not just that they’re swollen, they’re actually longer!
- I know how this thing is supposed to come out of me… but I can’t believe I will actually have to do that. In essence, the thought of labor scares me to death. So as much as I want this bump to move on its way, I’m also just fine with where it is.
I know you probably hear this a lot but I’ll say it anyway Katie… you are such a cute pregnant lady! You’re right, its just a little balloon and the rest of you is still amazingly slender. So cute!
Katie! First off, you are adorable pregnant! Don’t worry about the weight, it comes off 🙂 and secondly, labor is wonderful with an epidural… seriously, get one. I was convinced I was going to do it all natural but as soon as the epidural came I was in heaven. So don’t worry about that part of it, you’ll be a natural haha.
