This trimester is going by scary fast. I can't wait to meet our sweet baby, but I have so much to do in so little time. I think I've had two baby showers since my last update. One was family & friends and another was all my church family! My girl will definitely be looking stylish... she was given a lot of precious little outfits. I feel so fortunate to have so many loving people in my life who already love our baby girl.
Pregnancy has still been great. I have gained at least 30 lbs and after I eat, my belly button pokes out. My boss has been so sweet to let me work just four days a week now. I really need the time off to rest and get our house packed up - because we're moving... oh... about two weeks before the baby is due. No big deal haha. I'm trying not to stress and I just keep asking God to help me through the next few months because so much is happening in such a short time. I don't have a nursery set up. I haven't prepared for natural birth yet (but I did just order a book). I only have like two cloth diapers (when I think you need to have about 20 if you're really going to do it). And we're still on the hunt for a house to move into.
I think my fingers are starting to swell a little bit because sometimes my ring won't budge. I also think I have finally had some real cravings (I haven't really had any yet). I have been going to town on some homemade guacamole. And I'm making more of it today haha. Plus, I really want a BAGEL. Not just any bagel. I want one from Einstein Brothers. I haven't had one in a long time because I try to stick with Ezekiel bread only (it's sprouted + organic). But if I ever have a reason to splurge on some "bad" carbs, it's now - when I'm getting huge pregnant. I'm still being as healthy as I can be about it though ; ) I bought some imitation cream cheese, so I'm still avoiding dairy : )
I also was wondering when I would start to feel like nesting. It hit me a few days ago and lasted until 1:00 am because I was so furious about the filth in my house. I normally like my house to be clean. And it really is dirty right now, which would normally bother me. But I don't usually lose sleep over it. I couldn't even sleep it was bothering me so bad. And I've even been nesting at work haha. I think it's overflowing into other areas because I can't set up my nursery right now.
