This pregnancy has been going quickly for me and I can only hope the rest does too, because I'm not looking forward to 12 more weeks of pregnancy pains. Just hope it doesn't get worst the bigger he gets.
My laptop crashed on me, so that's just great. I need to take it somewhere to get it looked at. I don't like using Josh's desktop. I'm sure I would have had this post up a few days ago otherwise. Plus, all those pictures, hopefully the hard drive is ok so I didn't lose them all. That would just be awful. I guess that's why people back things up. Lesson learned.
I feel like not much has happened since my last update. My family is gone so it's just Penelope and me most of the day while Josh is sleeping. My friend and I threw a baby shower for a fellow military wife. The theme was jungle and the first shower I ever threw, so I had a lot of fun planning it. The day of is always a little stressful though. We used about 8 rolls of green crepe paper to make streamers/vines and hung them from the ceiling in my dining room. We also filled 30 green balloons with helium and tied twine on them hoping it might look something like a tree. It was fun and I think everyone had a good time.
I've been staring at the baby monitor for about 10 minutes hoping Penelope will go back to sleep after her 30 minute nap, but it doesn't appear so. Now she is starting to cry. I was hoping to get more done during her nap than just this post. Guess she gets two naps today.
How far along? 28 weeks and 3 days
Maternity clothes? Yes. I should have a shipment coming today =] I got my belly button band in the mail, but man is it a two person job. It was hard to figure out and I can't see under my belly, so Josh had to help me with getting it buttoned. I don't think I'll wear it too often, but it is nice because it's long so it will cover my belly if a shirt won't
Best moment this week: My friend's baby shower
Miss Anything? Not having a giant belly. It's now hard to put on socks.
Movement: Yep. I think he is in the process of flipping, if he hasn't already. He will go crazy and move a lot for a few seconds, then be done for hours.
Food cravings: homemade cookies
Sleep: Getting up in the morning is really painful. In the last few days, Penelope has been harder to get to sleep, but is sleeping longer. Last night she didn't get to bed until 10pm, but slept til 715 this morning and came to bed with me until 915.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not really.
Have you started to show yet: Yes
Gender: A little mister!
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? Far out! Seriously thinking I'll have a permanent outie after all this.
Wedding rings on or off? The rash is back! I'm convinced now that it's pregnancy hormones so my ring is off and I've been wearing Josh's band for a few days now. (He doesn't wear it because of work) I thought it was made out of the same material as mine, so I don't get it. And I haven't used any hand sanitizer!
Happy or Moody most of the time: Eh
Looking forward to:Getting news on military stuff. Can't say what it is, but it's very important and I have no idea when we will get the word on it. I can't take much more waiting!
