As of Friday, 2/6/15, I am officially in my third trimester.
I’m so excited to be in the homestretch, but in all honesty, I can’t believe how quickly things have moved. It doesn’t seem like long ago that we posted our 16 week photo and I bought my first girly outfit. And yet, there is an unassembled crib in our spare room, my baby shower is in 2 weeks, I need to pick a pediatrician, and her kicks have started keeping me up at night. My ankles are starting to swell, a trip to the grocery store makes me need a nap, and dropping things on the ground has turned into a major annoyance.
As I sit here typing, baby girl Western is dancing in my belly…not a care in the world. I tear up when I think about her soon I will meet her. I just can’t wait to kiss her sweet face, look into her eyes, and have her know my voice…just like her sister did. I can’t wait to make her feel completely loved and special. I can’t wait to see who she will become. I can’t wait to see what she likes and dislikes, and who she looks most like…and I can’t wait to be a mommy again.
So, it’s on to the next one for me and my belly! I’m looking forward to meeting my girl, but I want her to stay put for as long as she needs to. I’ve waited this long…so there’s no rush.
