The past month I have finally been starting to feel like a real human being again. The 3 month ultimate hangover has ended. I can stay awake at stop lights, go to the gym and brush my teeth over the sink instead of the toilet. Things are really looking up! I have heard this is the honeymoon stage of pregnancy so I am soaking it in while I can. I’ve had a lot of cramping lately which is just ligament pains meaning that the belly is growing. Good sign. I can still button my pants but I think, and I am sure my coworkers can agree, that it’s borderline inappropriate to unbutton and unzip my pants while I work. Borderline. Agh, we’re all family though.
I have a couple of bella bands that have been saving my life. I also just got my first pair of maternity jeans off of ebay. Eh. Undecided. I feel like my belly is starting to look like there is a small child brewing in there instead of 7 too many cookies.
I hate cleaning. HATE. But, I hate messes worse. I think I have had a little nesting syndrome lately because I have been cleaning out closets like there’s no tomorrow. I am hankering to get into that office of ours and transform it into our shoebox sized nursery. Small child = REALLY small room.
This week is the week I have been counting down the days to since that day in November that I found out we were going to get our little bundle of joy. Tuesday determines boy or girl. I had always wanted a girl first, I think because that’s how it was in our family. And their clothes are cuter. But I have had this feeling all along that it’s a boy. And I am REALLY excited about that as well. I just can’t wait to find out. I feel like this whole party will seem so much more real. We will probably still call it Emilio until we meet it, but at least Emilio will have a gender.
Until then, here’s a quick update on the belly. As for photos, I can dish it but I seriously can’t take it. I am hands down the worst, most awkward human being in front of the camera. I can’t be normal. It’s painful. But at least my dog’s the same way. Until Tuesday….
