While Sophie naps, I’m curled up on the couch with a big bowl of ice cream and Ina May Gaskin’s Spiritual Midwifery. Oh, and I’m still in my underwear because it’s one of those lazy kinds of days. :)
I know it's crazy that I can feel baby this early,...
I was just laying in bed and all of a sudden, unmistakable fluttering. Actually it almost feels like she is rolling around in there, doing somersaults. :D According to the fast heart beat and that Chinese Gender Prediction thing, this baby is a girl! But who knows. I think I might nickname baby “Izzy” because that could be a boy or a girl’s name, right? If it’s a girl she...
This cat found the perfect hiding spot.
Somehow she can fit in between our mattresses and the wall. There’s just a tiny opening at the bottom where the edging around the wall prevents us from pushing box spring thing completely against the wall, but the actual mattress is against the wall. It creates this small cave thing I guess, and Maxi discovered it and has been hiding in there pretty much all night as far as I know. At least...
Baby's heart rate!
Was 168 and very strong! No searching around for it, we could hear it the instant she put the doppler on my stomach. I could feel baby fluttering around like crazy while we listened too! It was so cool. :’) We are officially going with December 16 as EDD, even though my fundus measured at 10 weeks. It was a week behind with Sophie the entire pregnancy too so I’m not worried :)
Maxi is scared.
She’s taken refuge in our closet. Luckily she knows us, so she’ll come out to be petted if we talk to her. She’s just nervous about being in a new place. Sophie is over the moon about having her kitty cat! :)
About to go get our kitty!
And Bret’s little sister has decided she’s staying with us this weekend in case her cat misses her. :P It’s a much better deal than if her dad had just gotten rid of her. Sophie seems excited, we told her we’re going to go get her Kitty :)
Peaceful bedtime :)
I love putting my daughter to sleep. I can’t imagine using harsh methods of sleep training or whatever to try and force her to sleep. Our routine (or lack thereof, since she goes to bed when she’s tired and not when the clock says she should) involves no crying and no force. Tonight was especially simple. She’d had a long day of swimming and playing and was in an extra cuddly...
Is going to be awesome. First we are getting our cat. Yay! Then we are going to a cookout at my grandpa’s and letting Sophie swim in a baby pool with an octopus sprinkler thing. Yay! Then then then.. midwife appointment! And baby’s heartbeat! And Bret gets to meet our midwife and her apprentice for the first time because he had to work during the first appointment. Double yay! I am so...
Looks like we're getting a cat!
Bret’s little sister just texted asking if we’ll take her cat, Maxi. Apparently Bret’s dad has ordered that she get rid of it because she got into the kitchen and ate chocolate and broke something glass. So I told her we’d take her if he paid the $200 deposit for a pet that our apartment requires, and he agreed as long as we pay it back when we move out and get the deposit...
I SWEAR I felt flutters.
I’m not gassy or anything, I swear it was the baby fluttering around! I was just laying on the couch relaxing and all of a sudden I felt it. I never would’ve noticed it if I’d been up and moving around. It’s really early though, I was like 17 weeks before I felt anything with Sophie. But they say you feel it sooner the second time around because you know what it feels...
This weekend is going to be awesome :)
Me and Soph have been listening to some good old Hellogoodbye, Boys Like Girls, and All Time Low this morning and dancing, which always starts the day off good. :) Today me and Sophie have my cousin’s graduation party to go to, which will be a lot of fun. It’s always fun watching Soph explore new places and she loves people. We’re driving out there with my mom who hasn’t...
I am always hungry.
Always. This baby LOVES food! ;) Haha
Monday is a very big day!
We have a meeting with our midwife and we get to hear our baby’s heartbeat! Oh I am so excited you guys. I’m starting to actually feel pregnant; I have a definite little bump now and I’ve been getting heartburn which only ever happens when I’m pregnant. And my morning sickness is almost completely gone, as long as I eat as soon as I wake up and I don’t eat eggs in the...
