24 weeks with her.
Saturday, September 27, 2014
You've already been growing for 24 weeks and you're just now getting your first pregnancy blog post. It doesn't mean we love you any less. Promise.
Craving: Almond milk. Hummus. Sushi. Sour patch kids. Coconut milk ice cream.
Amazed by: Her incredible amount of movement: it's like she never sleeps. It's so reassuring to feel her constantly squirming around. Even Liam has gotten to feel her!
- The fact that I passed my first glucose test (by the skin of my teeth - but a pass, nonetheless).
Feeling: Indigestion and achy hips by 8pm. 14 extra pounds will do that, I guess.
- Thankful that I'm still able to lift Liam and he can sit pretty comfortably on top of my belly.
Anxious: To not yet know her name. I think I've visited Nameberry.com over a hundred times and we still haven't landed on one. Sometimes I stare at her ultrasound photo and hope her name just jumps out at me. Some current favorites of mine that we probably won't use, but I still love: Anniston, Harbor, Hadley, Daisy, Beatrix.
Loving: Being pregnant. Maybe I'm in the minority of women who just love being pregnant, but I do. Aches and pains and everything. It's a humbling privilege and a joy to carry this life, and I know I'll miss the feelings of her kicks as soon as she breathes her first breath.
Knowing: That the moment we first lay eyes on her will take our breath away.
