Let's talk baby brother...
Third child stigmas already setting in. I've hardly documented this pregnancy (outside of talking hormonal outburts), I've taken very few bump pics, no nursery is set up and we've hardly talked about a name. Poor kid. But dear third child and second son, we already love you with all of our hearts! Promise. I swore I wouldn't do this as our family grew, so I vow to be better from here on out and not let this set the stage for your life ahead. ;) Let's talk about this pregnancy in comparison to the previous two. Baby brother, you move and shake much, much more than the others. I feel everything with you. Every punch, turn and kick. You've made your presence known. As far as food goes, it's mainly about the salts and protein. Can't feel normal until I've had plenty of both. As far as size, I feel like you're huge. My whole torso seems to be consumed by your little body. But I really don't look that big. In fact, my doc was concerned about my stomach's lack of protrusion so she made me do another ultra-sound to measure and make sure you were still growing. Turns out that you're actually measuring almost a week ahead. As I suspected, you are just completely in my back just like your two other siblings were. So this makes me appear to be less far along. Also, I think it gets me less sympathy. Let's be honest, you always feel bad for the women who can't bend and are constantly barfing. I don't barf (just feel constant sea sickness) and I get all the pain in my back but a smaller bump in the front. So very little sympathy comes my way. Very unjust if you ask me. Anyways, you've been a pretty good little fetus. I don't blame you for my crazy hormones. Maybe I'm even using you as an excuse for my lack of patience. We can't wait to meet you. Scatlett talks to you and is convinced my belly button is one of your eyes. I'm 36.5 weeks but I would love to have you here any time now! Especially since you're measuring a little big.
Now friends, send good vibes our way and maybe if anyone wants to come wrap all my Christmas presents, feel free!
Here are pretty much the only baby bumps I took all pregnancy. Definitely not a weekly documenting pregnancy.
