We have past the half way mark and things are moving along! I am so thankful that I am more than half way through because this pregnancy is definitely harder. Just keeping up with two little ones alone probably adds to the difficulty. My ligaments have been so sore that getting around isn’t easy and I move pretty slow and have to take breaks often. It’s crazy the difference in each pregnancy. I am not sleeping well this time either. So the discomfort just makes me want it to hurry along, but I know I need to work on being present in today and enjoying the season before.
We got our C-Section date this week! We are officially on the schedule for June 6 first thing in the morning at 9:15AM. Same time as we were scheduled with Elyse which is nice because you’re less likely to get bumped around on the schedule. And I love going in first thing well rested, and having the entire day to establish nursing and have the siblings come. It made it feel so real and exciting!
Baby: BOY!! Jude Alexander
Mommy: I finally have had a little boost of energy. I don’t need to take a nap every day which is definitely helping my productivity. I am nesting like crazy and have a hard time sitting still. I just want to find something to keep me busy all day long. But at the same time, my ligaments do so poorly during pregnancy that it takes a really long time for me to get anything done.
Big Brother: Excited still! He is understanding so much more this pregnancy that it is so fun. We had a few things come in the mail for Baby Jude and he just can’t stop talking about it. He likes to tell everyone he sees.
Big Sister: Goes around pointing to all of the baby things we get and says, “baby Jude!” That’s the extent of her understanding still. As we get closer I will focus on it more with her.
Cravings: I can’t really say that I have had any lately.
Food Aversions: Anything that causes acid. It’s so bad!
Looking forward to: This pregnancy going quicker! HA! I am hoping that once I get past the glucose test and to these every other week appointments that it will speed up a little. I am just so excited to meet this little guy!
