29 Week Belly Pic
Only 11 more weeks to go! I managed to get through the holidays only gaining an additional 11 pounds! Hey, I think when I was pregnant with Gunnar I gained 13 pounds over Christmas! I continue on partial bed rest until I can have another ultrasound in a few weeks. While the first two trimesters flew by, about a week ago this pregnancy seemed to grind to a halt and time is passing by as slow as molasses. It could be that the partial bed rest, my increasing uncomfortableness and my cranky attitude are contributing to the feeling of time passing slow. I also know that I am anxious to know if and how much the placenta has moved, and I am sure that anxiousness is also playing a part in the whole situation. I am just going to do my best to get through the next few weeks when more information will be available. Maybe it is best to think of all the things I still want to take care of before the baby arrives! Hmm... I could get around our tax information. I still want to clean out the filing cabinet. I would like to make a final decision on whether we will be going with cloth diapers this time around. I should probably have the baby girl clothes and bedding washed and ready to go by the beginning of March. Then if I am able to birth at home, there will be a whole list of things to get ready for that! Looking at this list, I should feel thankful that I still have 11 weeks to get all this stuff done. Sometimes it is good to put things into perspective!
