this is my last week in my beloved second trimester! it's great because i know that i am now in the home stretch. baby should be here in about three months. it's amazing and i can't wait to meet this person! i'm scared of the third trimester because i know it is going to get harder.
babies are supposed to be most active in the 7th month, which starts for me next week. that is fun but also, i have already gotten some jabs in the side that hurt and as little one gets bigger and stronger i am sure these will come more often.
the third trimester is the time when i really am going to gain the weight. i have no problem with this, it's great actually. i have had a healthy pregnancy and i eat well, so i have no problem with getting bigger for the baby. i am not one bit concerned with taking the weight off after i have a baby. i am confident in my body and it's ability to get right back to being healthy.
nerves are starting to set in for when the baby actually comes. wonderment about what kind of parents we will be and how jp will deal with the stress of being a full time worker bee, a full time student, a full time partner and a full time parent. wondering how i will be as a partner and mother and if i will be able to give the support i need to, to my partner and child.
mostly i have been focused on the baby shower which is fast approaching. the baby shower plus surprise. i have been ordering things and looking at things to make the yard look pretty for the day. i'm excited that people will be there for us, and excited for things like tiny wittle socks :) my aunt and grandmother are coming and i haven't seen them in about 8 years. mostly though, i can't wait to see my momma again. last time i saw her was in march, i barely had a baby belly and i was exhausted and crying all the time :)
this friday is our big gestational diabetes test, 1 hour. i took the day off and so did jp. i'm excited cause this is now our day. so test in the morning and then we decided that we are going to go to a matinee to see "Up".
that is pretty much all that is going on... or rather, i have to pee.
