First weekly pregnancy post at 27 weeks along

It had to happen at some point, right?

I’m sorry, but I think most pregnant women aren’t so big (literally, yes) on jumping in front of cameras. It sounds like a fabulous idea, documenting each week of pregnancy, before you’re knocked up but once you’re smack dab in the middle of it…it’s like, eh, ugh, blah.

However, having gone through a pregnancy already, I admit that I really do regret not sucking it up, getting over my extra pounds and rounder figure and snapping more pictures of me and my growing baby. I also remember telling myself after the baby came that next time, I would do more.

27 weeks 2015

Well, I should have started this a few weeks ago when I really started “showing” but better late than never (seems to be my life motto, unfortunately…something I’m working on. A new year resolution, even). This particular baby-bump “portrait” lacks in creativity. I’ll be honest, I just wanted to get it done and over with. I do plan to improve that with my remaining weeks of pregnancy…which happens to only be 13 if we’re talking a 40 week pregnancy here! That’s “cray-cray” as my 2 1/2 year old Mia would say.

In addition to the visual captions, my pregnancy is moving along smoothly. Of course, my energy level isn’t what it used to be and I’m physically slower (some would argue mentally as well, me being one of them) and do need more rest periods in the day, but that’s completely expected and very doable. Mia is as sweet as sweet can be when it comes to this new baby. She loves to read her “I’m a Big Sister” book, she greets the baby multiple times a day by kissing my belly, rubbing it, patting it, telling it how it’s so cute and sweet, lifting my shirt up to “see the baby” and she even will try to peek (with one eye closed) into my belly button to find him/her. She got a new doctor kit for Christmas and likes to use the stethoscope on my belly to check up on the baby, she asks me if the baby is doing okay and tells the baby that she loves him/her all of the time. If this is any indication to how Mia’s attitude and behavior will be once the baby actually arrives, well then we’re in for something even more special and extraordinary than we could ever imagine and I can’t wait for these two kids to meet each other.

From the photo above, I’m sure you can figure out that we still don’t know the sex of the baby. I’m seriously shocked and impressed with myself for holding out with this crazy goal of mine…to find out the sex in the delivery room. I was sure I’d cave in by now but I’m more than halfway there and I’m staying strong. I will admit that this is the first week where it’s actually been a challenge not knowing. I think I may have started nesting at this early stage in the game. Is it early? Hmm, not sure but either way…I’ve been trying to prepare myself mentally for what style/theme/color scheme I’d like for the baby’s room which means coming up with 2 different scenarios rather than one. I’ve had my first urges to order baby clothes online but haven’t yet because cute neutral clothes are hard to come by. I don’t necessarily need anything, but having a special outfit to come home in will be nice and I’ll find something I like eventually…it just takes longer because I have to look through both boy and girl selections on some websites to find something neutral. And when it comes to a name, well we’ve had a boy name picked out for months now (just need a solid middle name…got a few we’re trying on) and we’ve been so undecided with a girl’s name until about a week or 2 ago. We finally have one that we both like but are still unsure as to how much we like it. We’re still “sleeping on it”.

Other than that, not much else to report on around here. I still can’t believe that I’m going to be a mother of TWO in only 3 short months. I’m really enjoying and savoring this short time that I have left with Mia as my one and only. On one hand, I’m a little sad that she’ll have to share my attention and love with another, but on the other hand, I’m elated over the fact that I’m giving her the greatest gift in the world: a sibling to love and cuddle and squeeze and play and laugh and of course, fight with.
