These posts sort of fell off after the wedding era, so I thought it was high time I brought them back, with a baby on the way and all!
Yesterday we reached the 20 week marker with our little Tater and it’s been such an exciting time! I started feeling her move a little over a week ago and it’s….weird and awesome all at the same time. Now I’m just trying to figure out how we get her to understand that when mommy goes to bed is not the time to start wiggling all around – ha! Can I get ahead of that backwards sleep and awake schedule before she gets here? Someone tell me, yes!!
Our 20 week appointment and anatomy scan is actually next week, and we just can’t wait to see our little girl again! I’m a procrastinator, at best, when it comes to working on her room, but I’m hoping that since her crib and mattress are being delivered today that it will give me a little more incentive to get in there and get some things done!! We may have a few more months until her arrival, but I’m the type of person who likes to get things done and checked off my to-do list way in advance. I’m actually surprised I didn’t have it done like, 2 weeks after we found out she was coming – ha!
I did have the rooms rearranged pretty quickly though. Our guest room and office became one room, therefore all the boxes and other…stuff….remain in her room. And that is what I have yet to deal with. #lazymama
Here’s a little peek of me a week ago. The baby bump is definitely there! Which is much better than that awkward phase of…my regular clothes don’t fit, but maternity clothes are still too big so…yay, I just look like I’m eating a lot of tacos!!
The only downside I can see right now is that I have trouble getting comfortable to sleep at night. I sleep ok, but I wake up a lot tossing and turning. Which is weird because I have always been a side sleeper, and usually just fall asleep on one side and stay that way, but now…newp. Now that I’m in the second trimester and not supposed to sleep on my back, guess which way I always want to sleep and is the most comfy for me? Yep, on my back. Sigh. Soon I’ll have to get one of those wedge pillows to put behind me so I can’t end up on my back – because as of now…I always do at some point in the night.
But hey, if that’s my biggest “complaint”, I’m doing pretty good, aren’t I?? No doubt, we know how very lucky and blessed we are, and we can’t wait for our little Tater girl to be here in August!!
