At this point in my pregnancy with Zach, I was in a way better state emotionally. I had embraced the thought of being pregnant. I was buying cute stylish maternity clothes. I had bought a few “boy things” and started designing his nursery. I was excited about the idea of having a baby again.
As you could probably have guessed from my announcement post this time I haven’t embraced anything. Nothing has been purchased. There have been more tears, more down moments, and I definitely wish I could hide away for the next 3 months.
Don’t fear though, I am slowly coming around. When my 4moms rockaRoo and breeze (pictures and details coming soon) arrived I felt a little tingle of excitement. Once I put together my rockaRoo for my review and giveaway, I felt a little anxious. Anxious in a good way.
There are nights that Mike and I will chat about the new baby girl and it makes me happy to see how excited he is. I giggle as we debate names. I want something old fashion. He wants something a little more modern and popular. I’ve even mentioned wanting to purchase another expensive double stroller and he didn’t even bat an eye. I love that he’s looking forward to 3 and having another little girl. He’s an amazing daddy. His excitement has actually helped me feel better about this pregnancy.
So let’s dish on the physical then and now. There is no denying it, my stomach is WAY bigger this time. I still weigh the same amount as I did last time at this point. Go figure. This really hasn’t helped my self-esteem any this time.
This time the aches and pains are a little more intense, but I’m determined to work out as much and as long as I can. The amazing staff at Dailey Method here in Carlsbad have been more than supportive and help me modify moves. Oh, how I love them so.
I’m going to be 42 when we welcome this little girl into the world and I’m determined to walk out feeling as good as I did when I had Zach!
Any other mommy’s to be out there? Don’t forget to head over to my 4moms rockaRoo giveaway.
