I went to the doctor yesterday for a bi-monthy check in and everything is great. Her heartbeat is normal, she measures well, and the pains I’ve been having are normal (some are from running for too many busses while I just have to deal with others). I also didn’t gain any weight! I love eating better. Well, I miss the good old days when my diet consisted of endless sweets but I’ve started really liking fruit.
I can’t believe she’ll be here in 9 weeks! That’s it! That’s so soon. I remember waiting and waiting and waiting until it was time for us to start trying for a family. It seemed like it would never come and now I’m 9 weeks away from bringing our baby into this world or, the other side of my belly since she’s already part of this world.
Last night Brandt was resting his head on my belly talking to her. He was saying stuff like, “This is Daddy and I love you WAY more than Mommy”. After a few minutes she kicked him in the face. Now that’s my kind of girl.
We really have nothing ready for her though. My baby shower isn’t till the end of the month and I’ve been waiting to buy a lot of stuff till I see what I’m given but it’s making me a little nervous. We have the crib set up (no mattress) and the changing table is ready but other than like 5 dresses and some onesies that’s all we’ve got. I’m going to have to shop like a maniac in April. At least I like shopping.
