That was my response this past week as someone struggled with coming up with just the right thing to say to me in reference to my ever-expanding belly.
Yes folks, I'm huge.
And do you want to know a secret???
I LOVE it.
a HUGE belly means a growing baby....one that is set to appear in the next two months!
So here we are at 31 weeks (though I post these usually when the week is almost over...so really, I'll be nearly 32 weeks when you read this!)
Had a doctor's appointment this week and we are starting every other week appointments now! I thought it was seriously last week when I just confirmed I was pregnant in the bathroom of a local Wal-Mart.
(True story...I had to go & figured I'd take advantage of my recent purchase of a HPT.)
Baby is measuring right on target. Weight gain is up to 20lbs total...and I am SO okay with that! My weight gain has been much more concentrated this pregnancy than with my last in which I felt like I gained all over. I feel very heavy in the belly section...but not anywhere else...yet.
I don't have GD & when we mentioned the fact that I was having strong "practice" contractions seemingly all the time, our doctor gave us a checklist of what to watch for "just in case."
We ran a few baby errands this weekend & almost have all the items we need to welcome a baby home. We started working on moving baby stuff back downstairs this weekend as well & I'm hoping to start washing up blankets & clothing in the next few weeks!
Our big challenge this week has been in searching for an adequate double stroller. We know we'll need one & we very much want one (we use ours all the time now...and our daughter is not one that can be trusted to walk & hold hands :)
Do you have a double stroller? What kind?
