An Update

So I’m trying to be better about updating some what regularly. It’s a bit challenging when I keep getting distracted.

Baby Update

He’s swimming around like a little fish. When I first started noticing obvious movement, it was like he was incapable of sitting still. It’s since slowed down a bit. I mean he moves and I still feel it regularly, but I also don’t get uncomfortable with how much and often he’s moving. My abdomen feels like it’s being stretched constantly and at the end of the day, it gets a bit uncomfortable being in my skin (so to speak). This scares me a bit when I realize that I’m barely a bit more then half way through.

Life Update

Next month, a few days after Valentine’s Day, I go to Florida to visit with my parents and have a bit of a mini vacation. I can’t tell you how excited I am. My best friend is also throwing me a baby shower which I’m really looking forward to! I never did have a Bridal shower since I live so far away from close friends and family. J and I also get to take a mini vacation while we’re there. We’re planning to head to Epcot and Universal during the week as well. I’m a bit concerned about getting tired easily but I’ll be sure to sit a lot. Once we get back, based on the stuff we get from the baby shower, we’ll start really getting into nursery and baby shopping.

So I’m nearing the end of my second trimester (not sure if it’s 24 weeks or 26 weeks officially, but I’m at 21 this week), and it’s a bit scary. I have 4 months or less before the baby arrives. To be honest, I haven’t thought deeply yet about actually being a mother. Right now, I can’t really think past wanting to just hold my little boy and cuddle with him. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or bad thing. Maybe it’s what happens when we get so scared of losing something. You realize that many of the things that are normally stressful become less so when faced with the health and well being of your child.

i'm still lost in thoughts of holding my new baby and cuddling. I tried to start reading 'what to expect the first year' but it completely scared me. so many things to learn! plus, babies turn into (yikes) teenagers at some point. that's more than I care to admit right now.

my skin sometimes feels like a balloon is being inflated from the inside, there is so much stretching going on. and my belly isn't even huge yet! keep rubbing lotion on, it will really help with the stretching.

I'm glad things are going well for you, and I hope you have a wonderful vacation in Florida. You need it and it may be a while after the baby is born before you get a chance to get another!
