Well. I am now almost 28 weeks along... Yikes! I can't even believe it! Carter is going to be here before we know it. There is still so much to do and prepare for! My sweet husband is constantly reminding me of this phrase "what matters most." I tend to get caught up in the money we will have to spend and all the material things in this life. But what maters most is my family and the love that we have for each other. I know I need to be better at living life one day at a time and putting my trust in the Lord that all will work out. I have realized that I spend way too much time in life stressing about the future, I am so much happier when I just take like one day at a time. :) Now that that is out there... I can move on. :)
The pregnancy is going well! I feel like I am huge, but that may have something to do with people constantly making comments about how large I am. I will not lie, I have shed a few tears about this. I don't want to be huge! But I eat healthy (for the most part) and I exercise regularly... so there really is nothing I can do about it. :) So I grin and bear it, but I am really tired of it! No women ever wants to hear that they are big. :)
This was at 24 weeks- I haven't has the courage to take one for 28 weeks yet. haha
Not much has changed with me! I would say that I feel like I have my emotions more in check... but I can't say that people would agree, I am afraid to ask Stuart because I am afraid of the answer. :) SO I just tell myself that I am better with my crying and emotions.
I don't really crave anything different from before... and I don't really have aversions either. Which I must say is kind of disappointing to me. I always wanted to have these crazy weird cravings- but alas I have none.
My mom went with me to register and that was a lot of fun! I wish I had a nursery to be setting up at this moment in time- but since our lease is up the week he is due- we will just have to wait on that!
He moves ALL THE TIME! Makes me nervous for when he is born! But I have to admit that I love feeling him move, it helps me remember what matters most! In this case what matters most is that I am going to become a mom in a few short months! I can't wait!
I have three co-workers who are also expecting and they did a baby shower for us at work- a book one! So we now have a lot of books for little Carter to enjoy- and I have already been reading some to him. Little story on that one- I was reading "Love you Forever" and about half way through I patted myself on the back for not crying... a few pages later I started to cry... its such a good book!
