This. This is what I naively imagined when I pictured pregnancy. Feeling my baby kicking and squirming, “window shopping” adorable newborn outfits online, wearing real maternity clothes, and gradually pecking away at home organization to prepare for a new little resident. Of course, I’ve still got all the typical back pain, unexpected spurts of nausea, acne, and heavy fatigue, but I can feel the little life inside me and I am plenty well to get to my work and keep up around the house. I love being pregnant! =) (Remind me I said that the next time I am between weeks 5-16.)
I had a sweet moment with baby on Saturday. I woke up in the middle of the night from a nightmare and snuggled up against Andrew. Then the little Yaffster started kicking and squirming. Andrew felt him before falling back asleep, and then I lay there for well over five minutes just feeling him wiggling. It was so precious. Andrew and I can both feel him now every day and the kicks are getting stronger.
Caleb is the size of a mango this week. I went shopping for little boy clothes for the first time and found a number of adorable little outfits at a great thrift store about 25 minutes away. I realized that I am in love with overalls of all shapes, sizes, and styles.
Next week is the halfway marker!
