Since I’ve gotten about 20 e-mails asking for me to at least give a few updates on how the pregnancy is going, I figured I better oblige before you all start a mutiny.
As of Monday, I am now officially in my 3rd trimester! Wahoo! It seemed to go by so quickly. But, once I get kicked like crazy, I realized it hasn’t gone by as quickly as I think. I feel like I’ve been abused from the inside of my belly for months now. Technically, its only be 8 weeks, but whatever.
We are getting anxious about everything now since we realized that not only will she be here in 2 months, but her brother’s graduation and birthday are coming up and need to be celebrated accordingly. I started to plan a get-together at the local county park for June to celebrate both at the same time and I think that will suffice. We’ll have to do it earlier than Sonny’s actual July birthday, in case the little Duchess decides to come early. She’s effecting our lives already.
I’m starting to experience some things I didn’t experience until the 8th month NOW. We had to run out and get me my exercise ball this past weekend because of the tummy and back pains i’m getting. I didnt get them until about a month before Sonny Boy was born, but they are coming full force now. I doubt that means she’ll come early, just that I’ll have to endure this for a longer period of time lol. Oh, I use the exercise ball to sit on when I start to have back issues, or to lay on while my knees are on the floor. I also used it the night I went into labor to help me get to 4 centimeters before we went to the hospital. Hopefully it can do the trick this time around as well.
Something scary to report? I heard that my 14 year old sister is planning a shower for the baby. I pray that it doesn’t involve a Jonas Brother or Twilight trivia game. Lord, help us.
Well, that should appease you all for a month or so. If not. sorry. It’ll just have to do until I remember to do this again. Preggo brain is a horrible disease….
