I haven’t updated the blog on Baby G in quite some time! I felt a little stifled after some comments from nameless individuals concerning “arrogant baby bloggers” , so I think that contributed to my lack of dedication. I’m here to say, lighten up people! I’m really excited and proud of my growing boy and will continue to update anyone who wants to support me through this electronic venue. I’ve had a hard time being in another state where I know no one, so the encouragement and love I receive through this sometimes gets me through tough days. I appreciate everyone who chooses to support Nick and I through this silly little blog. On to the good stuff…
Total weight gain: 26 lbs and counting (yikes!) I have gained so much faster in the third trimester! Thankfully, I think I can keep a healthy hold on it and stay under the recommended 35 lbs before delivery. I got the King family bird legs, so my resemblance to a pug is uncanny! I get a good kick out of it sometimes.
Food cravings: strawberries, graham crackers, tomatoes, and Mexican food (its always been a weakness)
What I miss: shopping. I know, I know…vanity is a terrible trap…. But I’m already bored of my maternity clothes.
Best moments this week: I had my first of two baby showers! My Mother-in-law is really thoughtful and planned a shower for the George side of the family. I really enjoyed connecting more with his family and feeling their support through such an amazing transition in both of our lives! Also, Nick and I started a birthing class. We are really busy from now until delivery, so I couldn’t get us into an actual community class (boo…I may have cried), BUT our hospital offers an online version of the class with a lot of great tools. This is really convenient for us during this hectic time. I'm praying that its just as beneficial as learning from a tangible instructor.
Milestones: I’m already seeing my doctor every two weeks!! This makes me feel like nameless “Baby G” is coming very soon.
In other news, Nick and the Celica got into a car accident!! (Everyone is fine, thank the Lord). Out of the four cars involved, Nick was one of the least beat up. He called me that morning and said “well, the officer on sight said that since my car is so old, it’s considered totaled”. I thought for sure this was the end of an era with that little black car. Nope! Nick pulled into the garage and I looked at his car and was like “...why is there duct tape securing your back bumper?” Apparently, his car IS totaled, and the insurance company will pay us a little extra if we turn it in to them-but Nick refuses. Haha!! He said that it’s still drivable and he will choose to keep it for a little while longer. I sure do love that guy. I have full confidence in that man’s loyalty. Thank the Lord he and the Celica are safe!
