Pregnancy Update

by adustyframe ~ March 20th, 2013

This pregnancy is pretty similar to my pregnancy with James–well as much as I can remember from that long ago. I did keep my pregnancy journal so I can read what was going on at certain weeks.

I’m not nauseous anymore–unless I bend over my belly! Yikes.

I have a little heartburn now and then and I’m tired. There are a few other little things but I can’t complain. I’m thankful that I’m not horribly ill.

I will admit that the gaining weight and filling out my clothes has been slightly difficult emotionally. I’m beyond thrilled that we’re having a baby, it’s just a huge shift in thinking.

I LOVE looking down and seeing my belly rounding. It’s just the other parts that are rounding that I’m not thrilled about!

With James, I craved unsweetened iced tea–so weird I know but I HAD to have it. This baby? Not really any cravings–nothing that I’d get up at 3 a.m. for, but I’m really hungry for lemon things. I made some low carb lemon bars but they did not hit the spot so I had lemon meringue pie when Lee and I went on a lunch date today. (Why do I wonder why other body parts are rounding? )

I’ve been blessed with some lovely baby things from friends and strangers. It’s so fun to sort the little piles and think  about baby boy!

Lee and I are still discussing names. I thought we had it narrowed down but once he found out baby is a boy for sure, he tossed several more into the running. We had a “rule” that boys had to have a book of the Bible name but we’re considering just changing that to a Bible name…..decisions decisions!

I think the only thing really different is that I’m more tired (age!). Another difference is that I’m just loving every moment. I did love every moment and cherish time with James during my pregnancy and his baby days, but I think this time I realize how very fast this all goes. I’m not wishing any of it away. With James I couldn’t wait to meet the baby and I felt that pregnancy took FOREVER! This time, I’m just relishing it.

So that’s about all!
