I'm sleep deprived...
Not because I can't sleep...
because I wont.
The last couple weeks I've been staying up WAY too late playing with the baby. She is most active at night - So I've been having a lot of fun with her when I lay down.
If I lay on my right side and put my hand on the left side of my belly, she immediately kicks at it. If I take my hand off, she stops. So I've been staying up until all hours of the night putting my hand on my belly, letting her kick at it for awhile and then moving it off for a little. It's so great that I can now feel movement on the inside and the outside! According to the books, she weighs about 4 1/2 lbs, so it's fun now... ask me how I feel about it when she weighs 7 and it will most likely be a different story.
Hmm... what else is new?
Oh - I'm so excited. I got her crib bedding in the mail yesterday, got everything washed and put in the crib, now she at least has a warm, soft, comfy place to lay her head when she arrives... I'll put some pictures up soon.
What else?
I have 3 showers over the next couple weeks. My first shower is the 15th with friends and family. Then I have my office shower on the 19th, and finally my Fred Meyer shower on the 23rd. I'm excited to get them all here and done, so I can re-evaluate what we still need and get my shopping done before I get too close to my due date. You don't realize how much stuff you need for a baby until you stop and think about it. For being such little people they sure do need lots.
I think that's it for now. Another Dr. appt tomorrow, one more in 2 weeks and then I start going weekly. HOORAY!
Until next time...
