She’ll be here in 11 weeks…give or take! Hopefully take… She has been sooo active these last couple of weeks. I’m sure she has been all along but I can really feel her now. I can even see her! It’s so weird to look down at my belly and see it rolling around. I love it and I already know I’m going to miss it. I will be glad to have her here though! It’s getting harder to know that she’s right there and I can’t hold her. She’s only inches (or less) away from my hand but I can’t touch her!! I know it will come soon enough and I’m supposed to enjoy this while it lasts. But not one person that has had a baby can’t tell me that they didn’t start getting anxious towards the end and wanted their baby here now!!
I guess if I had one complaint, it’s people telling me what I should feel about things. I don’t mind people touching my belly or asking questions. But I’m not you and I’m not going to feel the same way you did. I enjoy parts of being pregnant, but over all I’d rather have her here now than to “enjoy” my last few weeks of pregnancy. I do understand that it’s advice people feel the need to give, but you’re not going to change the way I feel about it. I’m ready for her to be here. Period. That wasn’t meant to be a rant! Just something I was thinking about.
I’m starting to swell up. I can see it mostly in my face and my ring no longer fits comfortably. It seems a little soon to me for all that, but I guess there’s nothing to be done about it. I drink a lot of water hoping that will help and I rarely drink sodas.
We finished registering which included adding a few more things to Babies R Us and registering at Target. I’m not really sure how we did. We just ended up scanning a whole bunch of stuff so I’m relying on people to know what we missed!
Other than that, there isn’t much to report this week! She’s about the weight of a butternut squash and is about 15 inches long.
Love Cody, Marissa, and McKenna
