This is sooooo awesome! love it
As for me, other than the fact that my breasts are getting huge and my belly button is poking out under the stretch of my belly, I seriously don't feel pregnant. This is still making me a bit paranoid and feeling disconnected from the pregnancy. I half feel like I can't buy things (even though I have been) because what if it doesn't happen? I had a great first apt, strong heartbeat and baby was moving all over the place, doing little backflips in my belly, but its hard to hang onto that for weeks in between without feeling or knowing anything that assures me everything is ok.
I have another appointment, this time with my midwife group, this Friday afternoon and I'm really looking forward to it.
So, what have you all bought so far? Thankfully I kept pretty much everything from pregnancy with DS so I don't think I need a whole lot right now. However, I can't help looking at woven wraps and cloth diapers, and have thus purchased several things this week (oh man!). I stocked my newborn and small pocket diaper stash and I bought a new woven wrap. Not like I don't have enough that have been just sitting around unused since DS grew out of them, but what can I say? hehehe. I did de-stash my wraps quite a bit during my time thinking no more babies would be coming, sold I think 3 wraps to mamas I met online (diaperswapper) through my years of trying to conceive. Then last night I went to the mall "just to look" at maternity stuff and ended up finding several things on clearance at H&M including a winter wool jacket (didn't need a winter maternity coat last time) and two tops for really really cheap. So I guess it's feeling more real by the day, and I can definitely feel my uterus expanding and cramping throughout the weeks, so I guess that's something to hang my hat on!
Still nobody knows.... eek. I honestly have no idea how to tell my family about this, and at the same time, I truly cannot hide it much longer. Already my son has asked me TWICE if I have a baby in my tummy. He never asked me this before I got pregnant, so it's weird, like he has an intuition about it. He is going to be absolutely ecstatic when I tell him.
