This week I’m 24 weeks pregnant. I can’t even believe it. Yesterday I had a little meltdown realizing that baby girl will be here in like 15 weeks! That’s kind of a long time still in baby terms, but in my mind it’s like full on anxiety attack. My poor husband, his wife is one big ball of crazy right now (yeah I’m talking about myself). I was just watching TV in bed with my giant new body pillow (whom we (I…)named…it’s fine..purely for the fact so that I could say I’m going to go cuddle with Thor–judge me). But anyways there’s your daily dose of crazy Jess (ha!), Back to watching TV, well I lose it, full on tears, panic attack. Labor, uh I’m going to be going into labor like REALLY soon. That’s the only part that stressed me out. Mainly because it’s like the unknown..I’m a total newb so I have no idea what it’s going to be like! Will it hurt?! Will she be early or take her time and show up two weeks late?! What if my husband is at work when I go into labor? All of these questions, popped in my head and stressed me OUT. It stresses me out a little right now talking about it, but my doctor did calm me down a tiny bit today at our appointment… THANK GOODNESS. But if y’all have any tips or tricks to get this Mama to chill over here, PLEASE share.
Now let’s talk questions:
How Far along are you? 24 Weeks
How’s baby? Fabulous, today she gave us a fist at the ultrasound and showed us her cute little lips and nose as she pressed them up against my belly. I’m in love is an understatement, she’s seriously the absolute best and I can’t wait to hold her and squeeze her and love her!
Movements? This question makes me laugh. I rock her to sleep all day with my movements and only feel her every once in awhile…but come night time and it’s PARTY time. I’m talking Mom gets no sleep party time. But it’s okay because I love her! She’s just prepping me for when she gets here. But quite honestly if she could cut the nocturnal thing before she makes her entrance that would be great. 😉
Innie or outie? My belly button is pretty darn close to becoming an outie, I didn’t even know my stomach could stretch this much! Talk about major itching..seriously it itches ALL the time. Cocoa butter is my new best friend. Marcus (the husband) makes fun of me because every night I put so much on my belly is WAY shiny…I guess it’s a little funny!
Cravings? Fruit all day, everyday! However this last week baby girl has had a sweet tooth, and my ever so famous chocolate addiction is coming out full force. OOPS.
Excited For? Meeting this sweet girl! Seriously, I’m so excited! Minus the labor part… And decorating her nursery. We’re slowly but surely getting everything for her nursery and I can’t wait to piece it all together and create the cutest little girl nursery! I hope it’s cute anyways..we will see–this image I have in my head may not come out like I’m hoping! Haha! But until then, I’ll be painting like crazy..literally my hands have paint all over them right now as I type–I’m all about DIYing it up.
