Here is my 8th month update picture. In the last week I have become quite round. Some of maternity shirts no longer cover the full belly and as you can see above, some of the long t-shirts I used to wear are also getting too short. Thank god for maternity pants to cover the gap.
Baby girl has been sleeping alot more lately and only wakes up a few times a day to say hello. Usually around 10 am, 3pm, 7pm and 3am. She seems to be on a little routine already.
We have been feeling great. On our last Dr's visit we were right on track where we should be, my uterus was at 30cm and I was 30 weeks, which I was told is how it should be. I have been maintain a good weight gain of 1/2 lb to 1 lb a week and it seems to only be in the belly, which i'm not complaining about.
I am still in shock on most days, although I feel her and know it's real, I still can't believe I'm the one that is pregnant. I'm not looking at someone else who is pregnant and dreaming, i'm the one. I catch my reflection in the mirror and just smile. I think if it wasn't for the growing bump and the occasional kicks I would still be in denial.
I worry everyday that she will be taken away from us, but I realize that is just old wounds coming to the surface and we will all be ok. I figure God wouldn't give us such a beautiful gift just to take it away.
We are almost done with the nursery, we are just waiting for the bedding to finish it and post the pictures. I have alot of the items on my registry so we still have a few weeks to go to see if we receive the items and then we will be complete.
This weekend I took some more baby items out and her swing and toy box are out in the living room and I also packed her hospital bag. I'm almost in need of a full size suitcase for her. I know I won't need that much and I will thin it down but it got me thinking to packing for a vacation in the future, we will need a bus just for her items. :)
Anyways, that's it for this weeks update. We have a Dr's appointment this Thursday and I look forward to hearing her little heart again.
