Tomorrow, Tuesday, I'll be 32 weeks pregnant. Technically only eight more weeks to go, however, it feels like an eternity. Yes, I'm a little uncomfortable now and doing the normal mommy tasks like changing Kendall's diaper on the floor is daunting. Overall, it's not been all that bad. I've mentioned before that I live in Minnesota and the winter (like much of the US) has been relentless. Yesterday we had our first taste of spring with a high of 60*F! Supposedly today we're going to have another winter storm. Sure it's rain/snow mixed, however, I think I may throw something breakable out the window if I see that white falling from the sky. I think that's one reason why I'm just so ready to be done with this pregnancy. I'm ready for a change of scene and if I'm not going to get it from the weather than by golly I want to see my new baby!remember we didn't find out with this pregnancy and despite my wanting to know I honored my husband's wishes to be surprised. We had found out the gender with our first two pregnancies and he's always wanted to be surprised. It's the least I could do for him (to fully understand this you'll have to read my previous post). This past week alone I have had three friends have their babies. I want my baby!! Not knowing what the gender is has been killing my patience (and I'm not a patient person to begin with). I love this baby growing inside of me but the surprise of the gender kind of makes me feel like the baby is ambiguous. I don't want to think of it as one gender more than the other because if it's wrong I don't want to be thrown off. I also don't really have a preference for any gender over the other. I know the baby's movements, a basic schedule, and I can kind of picture my baby but it's definitely not the same as my other pregnancies. If I could do it all over again here's what I would do:
- Baby #1 would be a surprise because I could focus solely on the pregnancy and nothing else. Having other children to care for has really kept me busy and distracted so I rarely lay around soaking in all of those pregnancy moments you have as a first time mom.
- Baby #2 and #3 would not be surprises for the mere fact that I do not have time to be still and focus on my baby. By knowing the gender of my second child before her birth I was able to think about her, dream about what she would look like while I was chasing my oldest around the house.
We’re due in Aug, and I can’t wait to meet my little one either!
Any gut feelings on which three baby will be? I was so sure my newest was a little girl, but he’s a little boy…. Hang in there! You’ll find out soon!
I’m due Oct. 21st with my first baby. Excited and nervous, all at the same time! :-)
I wanted to have the gender of my last two babies remain a surprise. Unfortunately, there was always someone who let it leak. With baby #2 my husband and mother found out, but so could tell by their reactions we were having another girl. With baby #3 the ultrasound tech wen to extremes to make sure I didn’t find out, she even sealed the gender in an envelope with a note for my husband to be super secretive. When I saw the ob less later in the appointment he kept referring to the baby as “he”, which I took for a general statement until he showed me the picture of my son’s “healthy proportions”. I was disappointed to know the gender early, but so giddy to have our first boy it overshadowed the letdown.
congrats i so want another baby all ready i have 3 a 6,3 and 8 month old
