Well 1 more Week down. 11 More to go! This is crazy to me. Soon enough our little man will be in our arms. This is something I cannot even begin to imagine possible. Lol. I can't believe how fast time is going. I feel like I am pretty much done with this pregnancy. Lol. I am getting tired, my feet hurt, I feel HUGE, I feel as big as a house...as big as I was with the 38 mark of my Pregnancy with Isaiah. And I still have 11 Weeks left. We'll see if the growing will slow down. I am thankful however to still fit my clothing...I must give myself that, my 2 Mat pairs of pants I have still fit just fine, and I have lots of shirts I can still wear. Although I am starting to feel lots of growing every week going on in my Belly (obviously) and I am starting to feel it in my Thighs and butt ;( Boo. Something I didn't want to happen. But that is the many joys of being pregnant apparently. At least I still fit my clothes. Enough feeling sorry for myself. I have had it...haha...I should be so Thankful to get to experience Pregnancy (and believe me...I truly am) I Love it all, you gotta take the many changes with your body in pregnancy with all the amazing outcomes of it! Soon enough I will be holding our little boy in my arms for the very first time! Staring down that the beautiful little face as he wonders where the heck he is. Kissing him for the first time, Cuddling him for the first time, Changing him for the first time, Breastfeeding him for the first time, Bathing him for the first time, Introducing Isaiah to him for the first time. Eeeek I am so excited for what is about to happen on this journey of having another Baby...another Boy <3 Pure Love is all I feel at this very moment.
This Baby has already got a complete different sense of character than Isaiah did. I cannot believe how different they are in Utero than one another. Isaiah was so calm, so chill, hardly really moved around (unless music was blaring), had the hiccups often, but just so chill is the only way I can describe him.
This little man however...YIKES. He has is wake up time anywhere between 2-4 am (doing the craziest dance routine I can imagine), he is constantly moving, has the hiccups all the time, when music plays...he is seriously rocking out (like his brother did...but I would say even more so), Constantly twirling (changing positions) Scraping his hands, feet against the my belly...Yup he is on the move all day long.
We had our Ultrasound on Monday! The Tech said that Baby is doing great and is nice and healthy. She said he (although she wasn't able to verify this time...cause he had his legs crossed) has a perfect little face. It was awesome how she was able to describe to us how he was lying when we went in though. But I am 95% he is always rotating his positions because where she said his head was...his hiccups were the complete opposite of that the next day. So I am pretty sure he just moves all the time, and doesn't like to stay in one position. But yay for having a good ultrasound. I will get the results back in full detail from the doctor at the end of May (I had one more month of an appointment every month...and then I get to go to an appointment every 2 weeks...which is when it gets crazy)
Baby Buys for the Week:
So I went to a store in Edson the other day and picked these little outfits up for the little man. It was kind of a Thrift Store deal...but they also sold some new stuff too. I think the total was like $10 or something like that. Lol. Score!
Little sleeper was $1.99, 2 Piece $4.99, Rock one-sie $1.99, and little long sleeved shirt $2.49...that's a steal of a deal! haha!
I remember my Mom only using these on my brother and sister when they were babies...I have looked for these at several different stores and could never find any, so I always just used the regular q-tips. But I always had a fear of putting them too far in Isaiah's ears after a bath (I know, I know "Your NOT suppose to put them in ears" but I for one hate it when my ears have water in them after a shower...and I have always done it this way) So now I won't be paranoid when cleaning out babies ears (or Isaiah's)! I got these on sale for $0.99 each! ;)
Ok so I am finally adding in my Mama Buys from a few weeks ago. I have to do it now, because I am going into Edmonton again on the 6th to do more shopping for myself and I will have to do a Mama/Baby buys section on that one as well. I plan on getting all of my nursing tops/bra's/pads...etc, as well as a few last minute things for the baby, a few outfits, creams, lotions etc.
Maternity Shirts: Black from H&M basic top, Navy Blue from H&M basic top (don't remember price, but I think $10 each sounds about right) Navy Prints Cream shirt from Thyme Maternity ($15 ish)
Maternity Pants & Tanks: Grey Pants from Thyme Maternity ($30 ish) Shorts I got used for $10. The Tanks tops are actually from Target (I got a while back) They were I think $15 each.
This "Nursing" Scarf is from Thyme Maternity it was about $15. I will definitely be making more of these. They seriously look like a huge square (but they are also circular)
How does Mama feel? I feel pretty darn tired. This pregnancy is doing a number on my body. Lol. I enjoy pregnancy and am loving every moment of it. But I must say that it is definitely hard at times. The Heartburn is not helping. This heartburn is weird though...I have never felt anything like it! With Isaiah it was mostly a sharp pain in my lungs and was hard to breath...but I didn't get it very often with him...when I did...it was BAD...but it only happened a handful of times with him. This pregnancy however, yes it does feel similar at times with the sharp pain in the lungs...but it's mostly in my throat with this one. I feel like I have to burp, and it is very uncomfortable :(
My back hurts...actually it hurts a lot of the time. I feel massive. I want to be done so I can get my body back. I know I know stop complaining....but seriously this has been really hard on me. It doesn't help that I started with 5 Extra pounds going into this pregnancy than I did with the last one. So that is pure motivation right there to get on track a few weeks after I deliver this cutie.
Other than those two major symptoms I am doing great and feel pretty great to. I love everything else to do with pregnancy, especially the thought of growing another little person.
