I've been planning on taking a belly pic, but just haven't had great lighting and/or I've been going from one thing to the next and didn't take the time to take one!
I had to count back from my due date to see how far I am since the weeks in the 20s seem to just kind of mesh together. But I am feeling great! I feel so lucky to feel like a normal person (just with an extra bump) and keep all my food down :) I haven't had a repeat of heartburn from a couple weeks ago, so I feel happy about that too. I've decided it was some oranges I ate. Too many!
I had an ultrasound last week and thank goodness, my cervix moved away from my placenta (or vice versa, I don't know!) which was the reason we were doing another one. It was so fun to take another look at this guy and the tech said he is 2 lbs. 10 oz. and in the 70%! She showed me he has some hair on his little head and it gets a bit thicker as it gets down by his neck! That was so fun to see. And she verified it's still a boy :) Good thing because Gymboree has taken a good chunk of my money for some cute clearance boy clothes! Everything looked good, the baby is already in the correct position and is healthy and strong.
This past month I have noticed that sleep isn't as restful as before and I know I'm not that big yet, but I still find myself flipping from side to side countless times at night! I know it's typical, but I didn't remember it this early on with the last pregnancy. Isn't it amazing how many things you forget? I feel tired a lot and I'm lucky that I can get a nap in when Ali does and Molly's at preschool from time to time. Justin thinks I should go to bed at 7:30 with the girls. Sometimes I think that's not a bad idea!
I do have to say that I have some serious anxiety about when I am mother to 3 children versus 2. I don't know if it's the fact that I have WAY less patience while I'm pregnant that the girls seem to be giving me a run for my money, but man! I am so nervous that I am going to have to be admitted to a psych ward with a 4 year old, 2 year old and a newborn! Molly will be out of preschool and I'm hoping that I can send the girls outside so they can play in the backyard! My neighbor says I can send them down to her house. I will definitely take her up on it!
I took the glucose/diabetes test yesterday and haven't had results back yet, but hopefully I'm all clear. My mom had it with all her pregnancies, however, I've yet to have it thankfully! I have been going to the gym 3 times a week lately and that has been good. It makes me feel better knowing that I'm getting some exercise when all I want is sugary things! Yikes.
We still aren't really closer on a name. Justin continues to call the baby Jackson and may even have brainwashed Molly to agree with him. I still throw around Caden (Justin likes this one too), Camden, and some others. I guess time will tell.
I bought some flannel from JoAnn's that was 50% off to make a receiving blanket for baby boy. I have washed it and now I can get going on it. I have to say, I have been really bummed with the selection of boy fabric! Especially flannel. There is 3x as much girl stuff! And the girl stuff seems way cuter to me.
