This Mama Comes in 3rd
Besides being HUGE and very uncomfortable, I've been keeping busy and trying to stay distracted until our little one arrives. I've been dilated to a three for the past couple weeks and the baby is head down but I think she's having too much fun kicking me with all her strength.
Every time I go to the doctor, he does an ultrasound and measures her. Unfortunately, she hasn't grown much in two weeks. Doc told me not to be concerned unless she still hasn't grown by next appointment. How is it that I'm still getting BIGGER and she's not?! I don't even recognize my body parts anymore. I saw my legs in the mirror and about cried. My body is retaining a lot of water. The sacrifices we make for our babies!
Our Mr. Boy has become quite the daddy's boy. It started out cute- now it's a little annoying. HeRoos and MB have been in a routine since day 1 of MB's life. When MB wakes up in the morning, HeRoos gets him out of his crib, cuddles him and they have breakfast together. If I interfere, MB lets me know that I'm not welcome-little does he know I prefer sleeping in anyway.
This morning HeRoos was on the exercise bike (yes, we're both gaining weight with this pregnancy) so I went to get MB out of his crib. He threw himself around the crib screaming & tossing until HeRoos arrived. The little stinker wanted nothing to do with me until HeRoos left for work. I guess I just have to accept that I'm not number 1 in his book. Come to think of it, Grandma Reta probably has the number 2 spot, so I guess I come in 3rd.
