Not much has changed since my last post. Little man gets bigger and bigger everyday and you can literally see the dance party going on in my stomach. James is fascinated with it :) James also likes to pick out his favorite music and put headphones on my stomach so baby can learn to like his tunes.
I have been a little hungrier lately but there's less and less room for dinner in there so I've been trying to eat multiple small meals. Some of my favorite things lately have been plain yogurt with honey mixed in (low in calories and high in calcium), Cheez-Its, cereal like frosted mini wheats or honey nut shredded wheat (lots of vitamins), and dried cranberries or other fresh fruit. But I also eat a lot of things that aren't the best for me, I've just really tried to watch how much junk I'm consuming.
Baby Boy's room has stalled in its progress until we have the majority of our showers (3 in March and a small one in April!) so we know all that we need to put away. We're getting our maternity shots done today and I am so excited. This is the third time we've tried but the weather was not cooperating. Today looks so beautiful though that I'm glad we didn't try to tough it out during the first two tries. Our awesome friend Deisy is taking them so I know they'll turn out super cute :)
We've also tried to start putting together a plan for the day I go into labor with a few different versions (pre and post James' finals, whether or not I'm at work, etc.) and what we want to take to the hospital. James has started making a list of songs to make a few playlists to calm me down once we're in the hospital. We also need to finalize what we'll be doing with Miss Penny once the time comes. We have some friends that have a dog that live very close to us who have offered to come pick her up and then my parents can take her as well, so at least we have some great options!
I need to sign up for my birthing class at my next appointment (we're officially at every 2 week appointments now, exciting!) so I can feel as prepared as a first time mom can :) I'm sure I'll be a little panicky anyways! My supervisor and boss and I have a meeting set up in a few weeks to finalize my maternity leave plans (who will take over certain duties, etc.) and then I'll feel like my work life is organized for his arrival. The rest of our lives, who knows when I'll feel organized?! I guess God does so I'll have to trust him on this!!!
