Well well 31 weeks, here we are!
In some ways this pregnancy has flown by and in other ways I feel like I've been pregnant for a good forever. I think maybe it's because we anticipated this baby for quite a while before I got pregnant, and also because when I found out I was pregnant we were in a completely different home with some uncertainties of the future. Which all seems SO LONG AGO.
And then there are days that I realize this baby girl is coming SOON and we have a lot to do. I mean I guess we really don't HAVE to do a lot of these things before she comes, because at first all she needs is me (food) and a place to sleep. However it would be nice to get her nursery done and actually have some clothes for her to wear. And maybe a bow or two
I actually don't even have one bow yet. Further proof that I'm not going to be the best girl mom.
Have I talked about how that makes me nervous? I know how to mother a boy. I know how to be a boy mom but HOW do I mother a girl? I DON'T EVEN HAVE ONE BOW. I'm already failing.
In general pregnancy news I've been feeling good. I am iron deficient so I have to take an iron pill everyday, as I did when I was pregnant with Eli.
I don't have any particular cravings, just hungry a lot.
I still have a low-lying placenta, which means we are looking at a c-section. My birth experience with Eli was smooth and I had a great recovery so I never really entertained the thought of doing it any other way. I'm not opposed to the c-section, just a bit sad that things are different this time. BUT it's ok and I am pretty much over it.
We have one more ultrasound scheduled and then the doctor will decide if I need a c-section date.
If the doctor decides on a c-section then I will for sure not be pregnant the full 40 weeks. Which means I don't have a lot of time left to be pregnant with Anniston. So each kick and wiggle and hiccup she has in there I'm cherishing. That is the best (and sort of creepiest) part of pregnancy is feeling that baby in there moving all around. Such a miracle.
Here I am pregnant at 31 weeks with Eli (on the left) and Anniston on the right.
I know, your mind is blown.
We are expected to get a lot more snow this week so we are potentially going to be snowed in. Perhaps I'll use that time to do some online shopping and buy some bows.
