Ten Weeks Left

26 Feb

Ten week belly shot. Hubby and I took our dog for a walk. The weather has been super nice, so nice that I was able to don my Nike Dri Fits for our walk. I always feel like such a football player when I have them on (it’s ten weeksbecause of my giant butt and thighs!). I feel as if I can do anything. Maybe I should wear them when I’m ready to give birth, haha. So glad the sun is shining, everyone is happy including our dog. Hubby is doing a great job making sure I walk most days of the week, he’s getting my body ready for the big day. I feel so much better emotionally/mentally when we take our walks. We get to catch up, enjoy the sun, burn calories, and it gets me nice and tired so I sleep better too. I appreciate him so much. He’s also good about making sure I’m eating as good as my body will let me (since I deal with nausea at times) and drinking more than enough fluids. I love our walks. Hard to believe it, two and a half months to go, so excited! It feels like time is flying by but that is always the case when you’re looking back. We are so happy, so far so good.

The Cat in the Hat

9 Feb

We bought a new book to read to Bear Cub. Is it weird that I have never read The Cat in the Hat until now at the age of twenty… Nine. Holy cow, I’m 29 years old, this is the first time I’m saying it aloud, errr, in my head. Anyway, I’m just now reading this when I know The Cat in the Hatothers did when they were much younger. Sometimes I feel like I’m either way behind the times or just didn’t have a normal “American” cultured upbringing. It’s a cute book but all I could think was “this cat is so naughty!”

I read a fetal psychology report a couple months ago that was so intriguing. It talked about fetal alertness, movement, taste, hearing, vision, learning, and personality. I had an idea from other articles I had read but this really put it into perspective for me. Plus, it was published in Psychology Today so it has to mean something, ha ha. For Fetal Learning, it talked about how the fetus prefers a book to be read repeatedly rather than a new book introduced after birth. I think I mentioned this before but the book parents chose to read to their unborn baby is The Cat in the Hat. Here are the other books we have at the moment. I play a lot of classical music and read as often as I can because I think it will make a difference.

Beanie & Sock Set

4 Feb

HubbyBear and I were at Motherhood not too long ago looking at maternity pants for me. While I was in the fitting room struggling to change clothes back and forth, he found this I Love Daddybeanie and sock set which he said brought tears to his eyes. I believe it, he’s as emotional as I am when I think of the little miracle growing inside of me. It’s the first baby item that he’s chosen himself. We are going to have Bear Cub wear this home along with his blanket. We still need to choose an actual outfit but probably won’t until we know how big this boy will be. HubbyBear was 14lbs when he was born, I was 6lbs 5oz. Bear Cub’s weight will come from both of us. Our doctor will begin monitoring my weight at 34 weeks and we will go from there as far as what sort of delivery method I will have. I don’t think newborn clothes will fit him since his dad was as heavy as a bowling ball when he made his debut! I don’t mind having a gigantic baby, just wondering about how he will exit my body! 😉
