-He has a name! After he is born I'll tell the story of how his name came about. But until then, we have decided not to tell anyone what the name is until he arrives.
-Overall I am feeling good. Just standard aches and pains that come with having a big belly and extra poundage.
-I am currently suffering from something that some people (me) like to call "Thunder Arms." They are usually accompanied by "Thunder Thighs" and are a direct result of being pregnant and eating lots of chocolate chip cookies. They are most prominent when pressed against the side of ones body, and one should never conduct the music in church as "jiggle-age" is for sure going to happen.
-When I was pregnant with Grace I stopped wearing high heels around 20 weeks for fear I would be off balance. This time around I'm 33 weeks and rockin' heels like it ain't no thang. I attribute this ability to the "rear bump" which has grown to keep things properly balanced (or so I tell myself). This rear bump is also caused by the consumption of chocolate chip cookies....and probably Five Guys. So should you be looking to maintain your balance during pregnancy, look into those two options.
-This little man gets the hiccups a lot. One day I decided to keep track and he got the hiccups 5 different times. Once, after I got up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, he got the hiccups and I had to wait until they stopped before I could fall back to sleep.
-Last night I couldn't fall asleep until about 3 in the morning because I was too busy thinking and over-thinking labor and delivery. I'm pretty sure that I dreamed I was in labor.
-I am so excited for the arrival of this baby boy. I can't wait to hold him in my arms, look at his face and smell that amazing new baby smell. I find myself swooning over the pictures that people have posted of their brand new babies. I'm not a creeper, I promise. I can't wait to meet him.
