I enjoy being pregnant. I really do. But lately, with this HOT (high 90's and humid!) weather, an ever active CR, and little energy, I think I'm just ready for the kid to get here. Although I'm not so sure that will help with the energy part. This baby is constantly dancing and jumping. Especially at four o'clock in the morning! Which I'm sure he/she will still do after birth. At 27 1/2 weeks, it's crazy to think that our little bundle of joy will be here in around 3 months! Just have to get through the summer :/ I haven't had any really intense cravings for a while. Nor have I been extremely hungry all the time, like it seemed I was with CR. Which really makes me question why I've gained so much weight this last month! 12 lbs in the last 5 weeks seems like a lot to me, but my midwife said not to worry about it. I'm not worried. Just really curious as to what it's from. Yes, I know, a baby. I'm just going to call it water retention. That works for me!
I was babysitting my cousins 3 young kids, and her oldest, 5 year old, loved touching my belly. She just laid on the couch with me, her hands on my tummy, concentrating on feeling baby kick. Her mom is also pregnant and about as far along as I am, and the kids are really looking forward to a younger sister. So of course, they also referred to my baby as a 'she'. This really makes me wonder how CR will react when she's old enough to understand and I'm pregnant again. Right now she kisses my belly, but it could be because she likes round objects ;)
