Sometimes I have to remind myself that I'm pregnant. Which is pretty odd. With Aidan it was all I thought about. My pregnancy consumed my thoughts, my decisions, my life. With this one, there's not as much worry. I'm just enjoying the time I have with Aidan before the baby is born. And in the evenings as I lie awake in bed I enjoy feeling the little butterfly movements of baby number two in my belly.
This week baby is as large as a bell pepper.One of my favorite foods, incidentally. I think I know what we're having for dinner tonight!
I have my monthly appointment next Thursday. So far everything has checked out just fine. I thank God every night that this pregnancy has been so amazing, just like my last one. Hopefully it will continue. Then, in two weeks we have our big ultrasound. You know... the one where we find out the sex. Except, we're not!
I'm starting to make a "wish list" on Target.com to track the things we'll need to buy for baby number two. A new monitor, double stroller, possibly a new swing... you know, just a few things. I'm definitely not having another shower, although I have a feeling some good friends will be throwing me a little "diaper sprinkle"... which would be fantastic! Because man oh man are diapers expensive. And it's incredible how fast newborns go through them! (I'm still thinking about cloth diapers, although I may wait until baby is out of the "newborn" stage to try them out.)
We still don't have a "utero name" for this little one. Any ideas? I'd love to hear what you come up with!
