Little Sweet Pea,
Another week down, which means we are just one week closer to meeting you, which I am SO excited by. I’m so excited to see how you a similar to your siblings and also how your are different. What kind of baby will you be? Will you be laid back and easy going or will you be a colicy and just a handful in general? Who will you look like? When will you come, how will you come? So many unknowns, which make things a little scary but also exciting at the same time.
I’m sure I will feel differently after you are born, but I’m just not one of those people that ‘love’ being pregnant and find it so blissful. Its not that I want to wish this time away, but generally speaking, I’m find myself always looking forward to the next stage whether that be, your arrival or learning to sit or walk or whatever. I don’t find myself sad or missing previous stages of life. Maybe that will be different knowing you’re the last but so far, I’m just really looking forward to meeting you!
This past weekend was Easter and it was our turn to spend the day with Mommy’s family. We had a great day celebrating and the big kids loved searching for Easter baskets and eggs. Sweet Lexi has already picked out a basket for you to have next year!
This isn’t anything new to ‘this week’ but I don’t believe I’ve mentioned yet. Around 16 weeks or so, I finally started to notice my hair wasn’t falling out to the extent it usually does (gobbs in the shower) and is a typical symptom of pregnancy. However, I have noticed my hair is less greasy than it has ever been (pregnant or not pregnant). Previously, I would struggle to even go a day without washing my hair, but since I’ve been preggos, I can easily go 3 days and even a 4th if I put dry shampoo in. I’ve also noticed that my underarm and leg hair grows much slower. Again, I would typically need to shave every day to every other day and now, I can pretty much go a week, which is absolutely insane to me.
Movement has shifted from only feeling the random kicks to feeling you shift positions or stretch out your arms or legs, hiccups and little internal movements where it feels like you’re playing the piano on the inside of my belly.
No other major updates. Daddy is continuing to work on the bunk beds, currently he is sanding them and getting them ready for me to paint. Tomorrow, I have my 28 week checkup and hope things continue to go well. More to come on that next week.
