27 weeks!

I know for those of you that read my pregnancy blog, this is a duplicate for you...with only a few modifications. I figured the rest of my blog world would like an occasional pregnancy update as well.

My due date is 3 months from today!

I'm having Braxton Hicks. Starting yesterday. This is the first time EVER in 106 weeks of pregnancy that I've had Braxton Hicks. It's exciting. I thought I had them before but no, those were just "false contractions", they felt painful . These are just a very weird hard stomach! I don't know why I'm excited about it, but I am because it's something new and different and these last few weeks, things are feeling same old same old and I'm STILL not in my 3rd trimester yet, and so this is very COOL for me. And they are weird and my belly stays very hard for long periods of time but it doesn't hurt or isn't uncomfortable at all. It's awesome!

Plus I got a round(ish) veggie for 27 weeks (rather than a friggin carrot stick, come on, what was that!), so you know me, it's the little things that make me happy.

AND - I got the birthday thank yous from Addie's JULY SECOND birthday sent today, if you know me, you know this has been weighing heavily on my mind, so I feel very good about getting those sent out, and getting the invites for Lily's party sent too, you know, with only 3 weeks to go, but they are OUT. And yes, for some families (who wouldn't hate me or judge me) I put them in the same envelope knowing it was tacky, but sometimes a girl's gotta save $.41, okay? So if you are one of those who got both, know that it is because of how secure I feel in our friendship, that you will not judge! I know it might not feel like it, but really, it's a compliment. No really! :)

In other news, I finally had a bit of a melt down last Friday afternoon. It was a long time coming. I haven't had a good cry since Lawrence lost his job 6 weeks ago, and I'm pregnant, and the two of those things together add up to a-storms-a-brewin'. It didn't feel quite as good as I hoped it would. Not cleansing or anything, just mostly empty and numb. But I'm still glad I got it out. I needed that. Who goes 6 weeks in a pregnancy without a good cry? Certainly not me!

Baby boy is getting closer to being named though we aren't settled for sure yet. It's not that we don't want to "tell", we will tell once we are sure, but we're finding that we've always had our babies named for sure before we tell, and we don't really like other people's input on what they think of the names we are considering. Which we have not been secretive about, and we have gotten feedback on. Both positive and negative. We'll still go with what we like. So we will tell you when we know.

I'll see if I can twist someone around here's arm to get them to take a 27 week belly shot of me, until then, you just get this cauliflower/quarter comparison of approximately how big my baby is. I know Sabine would gladly do it but she is going to the Killer's concert tonight! Her first US concert, hope she has a great time.

Well gang that's it for this update. I was really excited to announce the BH contractions and then it all went down hill from there. One more week till my Glucose test and another weigh in, then I start with appts every 2 weeks and the 3rd trimester. I'm finally going swimming (prenatal water fitness) again tonight which should be very good!

See ya next week!

Happy Happy Birthday Shawna Pace-Powers. I love you dearly and can't imagine my life without you as a friend.
