I'm kind of in an introspective mood today and thought I would post a bit about where I am at this time in pregnancy. Maybe we will have a few correlations. When we went in for our gender scan, 18 weeks for us, they diagnosed me with an anterior placenta. As many of you who have this condition know, it is rather harder to feel baby move for a significant portion of the day. I can go through my morning and most of the afternoon not feeling a single poke or prod or hiccup! Yet at night she is kicking so much that I barely get a wink of sleep. I'm not showing near as much as I thought I would be at 6 1/2 months along, and last night I bought some amazing Paris Blues maternity jeans with an over the belly band built in. I LOVE THEM. They slim me!! They're not tight, they don't compress my belly at all, the band doesn't roll down like the 2 inch banded maternity pants did. Last night, we played games with our friends at the kitchen table and I honestly forgot I was even pregnant till the LO finally kicked for the first time at 10 pm. I'm pretty sure that the nesting has started though. I've been folding laundry straight out of the dryer, vacuuming every day and I've been so on top of the dishes that my kitchen is SPOTLESS. These are things that sound normal, but through the first bit of my pregnancy I was very ill and things kind of fell behind. The house wasn't a disaster, but I certainly would have been embarrassed if we had been visited by company during that time. I'm so ready to just hold her in my arms. To introduce her to her big sister, and to bring her home. May our last weeks prove uneventful, may our children arrive healthy, may we all recover with speed.
