Hello! I'm still here. I'm 24 weeks pregnant and feeling good about it, 85% of the time. The 15% is when I have moments of mood changes. It's like when I was on the pill and I felt PMS-y all the time. It was no fun then and lasted a lot longer, but this time I have worries with it, like, this baby is coming sooner than later and we have nothing prepared. I like feeling prepared. Or when people treat me different in a way that makes me think, "geez people, I'm not handicapped!"
My favorite part about being pregnant so far, a tie between:
- Feeling him kick me. It make me giggle sometimes and he has literally tickled me a couple times. I love seeing my tummy bounce. It just makes me think about how cute he's going to be.
- I also love sending my dad updates through the email. His replies back to me make me laugh and I love being able to share this experience with him.
Here I am at 24 weeks! No I'm not pushing it out.
Brady has had my camera, and my point and shoot is kaput, so I had to use my phone.
Another annoying thing is swollen feet and ankles. Extreme man! It started when we went to Disneyland, then they went away after a week or so, then they came back with a vengeance, then they went away. Now they puff up a little every day, but go down by morning. On Saturday, Sarah came shopping with Brady and me. When I came out of a dressing room in a dress, Sarah was literally gawking at my ankles. I would've been offended if it wasn't so funny.
I don't talk to my tummy/baby. Is that bad? Will my baby not recognize my voice?
My driving has gotten less ragerific, not that it was that bad before. I now notice that people run red lights all the time! It's scary, so I make sure all cars are coming to a stop before I go on my green light.
I like listening to rock and alternative music in the car. Is that bad with a baby?
I can't wait until my new clothes come in. I ordered a bunch online yesterday.
Brady and I watched the documentary "Babies". It was super cute and really funny. Our favorite baby was definitely the Mongolian baby. He was hilarious, even his older brother had us rolling.
I can't wait to see my mom this Friday.
