A Mommy and her boys

Playing, diapers, learning diapers, feeding, diapers and growing…one day at a time!

The thoughts of a mommy-to-be — the countdown is on! February 22, 2006

I have never been so tired in my life! Okay, well, except for the first trimester where I slept more than I was awake! I am just super tired. In fact, I had a half-an-hour nap today and it was heaven.

I also can’t believe how carrying around a baby can be so much work, and this one isn’t even out of me yet! I just find that walking around the grocery store is getting to be a hassle. I think it is funny when I try to get out of a chair or off the couch that I have to get a rocking motion going before I can get out!

Regardless of all of that — I LOVE BEING PREGNANT! It is amazing to know that we created life and I’m carrying this beautiful little one inside of me. I love the kicks. I love to feel when it wakes up and kind of stretches and I can feel it on both sides of my stomach. I love feeling the baby hiccup. I love the ultrasound pictures.

But…

I’m starting to get a little scared. I’m good at this mommy thing while the baby is inside of me…how will I be when it is out? I am scared that I won’t have that maternal instinct. I am scared that I won’t find time for my husband. I am scared that time will fly so quickly that I won’t remember those early morning hours with my baby and me, just us.

But…

I know that my mom was the best example I could have asked for and I will try to follow in her footsteps. I know that I have my mom, sisters and sister-in-laws and a mother-in-law to help me get through some of the baby stuff I don’t know. I know that my husband is patient and loving and will be there when I’m at my witt’s end. I know that I can make it through this one minute at a time, one hour at a time and one day at a time. I know I am strong.

But…

I’m still a little scared….

Hiccup, hiccup, hiccup February 13, 2006

The baby had the hiccups for the first time that I felt a few mornings ago at 5 a.m. It was hilarious. I loved it!

The baby is a kicker! Loves to play on my bladder, especially when it is full.

I am loving being pregnant! I love feeling the baby move. I’m really excited to be a mom. There are days where I am getting tired of carrying all this extra weight around (25 lbs.), and my back is REALLY starting to hurt, but despite that, I am sooooo excited!

So far the verdict by most is that we’re having a girl, which is what I’ve thought all along, but only time will tell (14 weeks or so). Brian and some friends of ours painted the nursery this weekend — I LOVE IT! It is soooooooo nice. We painted it a realllllly dark redish brown — it is called Chianti by Behr. It took them a coat of primer plus three coats of paint to get the colour right, but is is beautiful. Our trim throughout the house is white, and the crib and dresser are white, so it looks really nice! I know, I know it is isn’t the typical nursery pastels, but I’m just not typical. I wanted earth tones, but not brown or beige. And, since we didn’t know what we were having, it was hard to pick a colour. I wanted to do green, but then when I saw this colour, I had to have it!

Oh, and Brian and I set up the crib the other night too — wow….talk about this getting real! We are really excited!!!!!!!!!
