My coworker Mollie and I are both pregnant so the cute girls that we work with threw us a baby shower last night! They did a great job and I am so grateful to everyone that came! Conner was blessed with many cute outfits, blankets and necessities! So thank you to everyone!
In other baby news, tomorrow I hit 28 weeks! That means that Conner is about 15 inches long and about 2-3 pounds. I'm not sure how something 15 inches long is fitting in my stomach right now, but I guess he is! It also means that I have officially hit the 3rd Trimester! I have another doctor appointment next Wednesday and get to do the glucose test and then my appointments will be every 2 weeks!
Chris and I are getting anxious to meet our little boy! He is moving around more frequently and Chris is able to feel him more. However, when other people want to feel him he is usually a pill and stops moving-he is already a stubborn little boy!
Thank you for- Being an amazing friend and husband Working so hard to provide for us Taking care of my crazy needs and wants while being pregnant Helping around the house more often the past couple of months Putting up with my complaining Feeding the dogs every morning so I don't gag from the smell Always thinking of me, even when I don't think of you (anniversary card) :) Tickling my back because it hurts Getting me diet cokes And saying that I look good even though I feel like I don't
Chris and I decided to paint the nursery this weekend! It is exactly how I envisioned it in my head! We will have Cherry furniture in the nursery so you can picture that against the wall. And we have chair rail that needs to be put up where the white is and then it is completely done (except for the furniture, decorations and the baby)!
Today we have been married 4 years, Happy Anniversary Baby! You are such a great husband and friend and I couldn't ask for a better partner to spend my life with! I'm pretty emotional these days (i.e. hormonal) so I won't write a lot of mushy stuff, but know that I love you and can't wait to start our family and spend forever with you!
So today I hit the 25 week mark! I had an appointment on Wednesday and I am measuring good and Conner's heartbeat was 144bmp, which is good. However, the doc is worried about my weight and wants me to gain 3 pounds by next appointment, which is July 1st. I don't want to eat fat and crap for the next month so I'm going to bump up the protein and eat more frequently and gain weight the healthy way (that sounds funny to me)!
The past week I have really been able to feel my stomach getting bigger, although in pictures I think it appears smaller. And I have been able to feel Conner move around a lot! In 3 weeks I enter the third trimester which seems crazy to me! But that means we are closer to meeting our son and having him here! Chris is out of town but should be home next week and we are finally going to start painting and getting the nursery ready! I will post pics when it's done, but that won't be for a while (we still have to get a crib, dresser, rocking chair and decorations). And I will post a picture of me as soon as I can. I forgot my camera today and Chris has our laptop!
