This week marks the beginning of an adventure into the unknown world of the THIRD TRIMESTER!!! On one hand I can’t believe how fast the past six months have flown by, however the thought of being pregnant for another three months seems a bit daunting! Everyone I know keeps telling my how hard it is, and much I am going to hate it….it seems pretty hard to stay positive with those kind of comments, but I am going to try my best.
-Holy baby bump!? (It seems that Baby Addie has decided to announce herself to the world and overnight I have a basketball underneath my t-shirt!)
-I get my shots, glucose test, and more blood work next week
-We are debating about whether we want to go to the child birth classes at the hospital or not…(can’t I just youtube some information or something!!??)
-The baby room is almost complete (minus the curtains and a few decorative touches).
-I am getting excited about upcoming showers and the chance to see friends from out of town again!
-Baby Addie is kicking a lot, and if I put a flashlight up to my belly she goes crazy! She also really likes bath time (just like her mommy!)
Totally Impractical Baby List
Yes, I have read all of the best baby blogs and books on what to buy for your baby at different stages and etc… But this list isn’t about practicality, it is just about fun. Hubby and I have done very well ( I think) over the past few months. We have resisted the urge to by the baby a single article of clothing, because it seems like there are much more practical items that need to be acquired before we venture into the world of pink tutu’s and “Daddy’s Little Girl” onesies. I am sure that this baby will have a better wardrobe than me before it is all said and done. However, with the baby almost here, I have decided to cut myself some slack and allow myself to look at all the adorable little baby shops on Etsy and I think over the past few weeks I have added dozens of items to my “favorites” list. Yes, these are pretty impractical baby items, and are certainly not considered necessities…but aren’t they fun!?
