Full Term & Things to Remember
Here's me full term. Yes, I'm huge. Yes, I'm counting down the days.
As my pregnancy days are numbered, here are some things that I want to remember about this pregnancy.
-This baby loves the sound of his daddy's voice. He always responds perfectly on cue when my hubby talks to him. He can be quiet all day and then start wriggling around in excitement when daddy gets home and starts talking to me. (My husband jokes that this is probably the only time in his life when he'll listen to his dad this well, but I know it makes him happy.)
-In general I'm not overly affected by serious or weird food cravings. At various points during this pregnancy, though, I have eaten huge amounts of fresh lychees, apple flavored rice cakes, and peanut m&m's.
-Yes, soon I will have three kids fighting for my time and attention. Ever since we told them, though, our girls have been very excited to have a baby in the family. They talk a lot about the baby and what it will be like after he's born (usually including nice things they can do for him, like let him play the prince in their games or sing to him).
-This is probably the last time I'll be pregnant. I want to remember the miracle of feeling them kick (it sounds cheesy but it is a miracle), seeing them in ultrasounds, hearing their heartbeat, etc. I'm impatient to meet and hold him, but I know that right now is the closest that the two of us will ever be.
-Sensitive skin galore, but no new stretch marks (hurray!)
