It's happened! My belly has become a table for two! Neil was amazed when he saw me resting my cup of milk on my belly while I ate my cookies the other night. Hey, whatever works, right? I think it is rather convenient and can't wait till the "table" gets bigger!
I start 25 weeks tomorrow! I have been feeling Natalie move more and more and even am woken up some nights/early mornings with her kicks and rolls! I think I may have an early bird on my hands- just like her daddy. I am not an early bird so it will be interesting to see what takes place! I went shopping last week with my Mother-in-law and two of my sisters-in-law and bought Natalie MANY cute items. I was so excited and felt like I got a pretty good deal on some good quality clothes. I fell in love with the Carter's store! I became obsessed with shopping for Natalie about two weeks ago, but held off till I went with the family last week. I'm sure there is a good chance we will get many cute items from other people, but I began to worry that she wouldn't have some "essentials" that I would like for her to have, such as pants. She will be a winter baby and I became sad at the thought that her poor legs would freeze because no one bought her pants! Plus, I became anal about her having certain kinds that I wanted her have: colors and material that I can mix and match. I'm sure it was all for naught, but I think my "mommy mode" kicked in and I wanted to take care of her and have fun picking out certain things for her that I know I like because its all about me, right?
We go to the doctor on Monday and I start the blood sugar tests. I remember being the doctor's office with other pregnant women who were there for their test and I remember thinking, wow, 20-something weeks seems SO far away, they are almost done with their pregnancy! That's where I'm at right now, but it doesn't seem like I'm that far!!! Well, I think that is all I have for now.
