awkward and awesome

Awkward
- I don't know if this is considered awkward or awesome, buuuut my belly button is starting to pop out.  I'm really starting to embrace this whole changing body thing, it's almost like I'm back in seventh grade -I guess it's not really that awkward.
- I told a lady the names we are thinking of for our baby, her response: Well, you better make sure you give her a normal middle name in case she doesn't like her first name.
- I've got loads of mosquito bites on my legs, so many that I look like a leper -I-kid-you-not.
- People staring at you in public. They are thinking: So, is she pregnant or does she just have a gut?
- I'm starting to waddle, this cannot happen I'm only 26 weeks along.


Awesome
- We went to our second prenatal specialist sonogram appointment this week to check out the "cyst" or what we've been calling the bubble. Our little one wasn't very cooperative and had her rear up where the bubble was supposed to be so it was kind of hard to get a look at it. There were a few moments when the ultrasound tech could get a peak at where it was supposed to be and she kept saying that she didn't see the "cyst".  To make sure I turned to each side to try and get a better angle, and she still couldn't find anything. So longer story short, they are saying the "cyst" is gone and we don't have to do anymore specialist appointments!! We are so blessed!
- Being able to rest bowls on my belly, this thing makes for such a great table!
- A new craving of mine is hostess chocolate donuts -the little ones- I can eat them all day. The funnest part though it that they really get our baby moving.
- Starting to make some hair bows for this girl, I don't want to go overboard, but I want to be prepared.
- A few weeks back Brand and I went to the mall and we looked at baby earrings, I had my ears pierced when I was a newborn baby -as early as they could do it- and so I thought I should carry on another tradition with this little one -I don't care if you judge me. So we were looking at baby earrings and Brand found these really pretty little pearl ones and we were thiiiiis close to buying them. I love that he is into this too!
- My favorite times of day are when I can feel and see her moving around in my stomach, even when it's 230 in the morning, seriously my favorite!
- So there are times when my skin smells like a baby, I don't mind though because I loooove the smell of a baby!
- Bringing back the crochet beaded socks for our little girl, I fell like I'm bring back the 80's with these.

  4. You look adorable!! I had my ears pierced at age 1, and I think it's better than when they cannot remember the pain and can't reach out and touch it. :)

  9. Wow! You are really good at working with that bump in the way! I am having the hardest time with maternity clothes this time around! I think because I am huge this time. (You are farther along than me and I'm way bigger! YIKES!) I would just like to wear a tent and call it good, but then I wouldn't look nearly this cute! ;)

  14. Aw I love this post! And I really don't think people should judge things like deciding to get your baby's ears pierced when they are a newborn. Those people need to get over themselves. She's your child, not theirs! :)

  23. OMG I want to smell like a baby!! LOL! That would be my fav part of pregnancy besides the hostess donuts LOL!

  24. You are glowing!!!! Yes, love the idea that you are piercing her ears as early as possible. Why wait when we know we are already going to do it. Get the painful parts out before they develop fearful memories.

  26. Was searching for my GF’s blog and came across yours. Started reading and came to your recent post wanting to have your daughter's ears pierced as a newborn. It reminded me of my own experience having our daughter's ears pierced soon after birth. While pregnant, I actually dreamed of my baby with earrings when the nurses first handed her to me in the delivery room, she had little pearl studs in each ear :) After she was born, I could hardly wait to get them pierced. Guess what her first earrings were...pearl studs :)

    Some mothers may have opposing feeling about piercing her as a newborn, as soon as they see her, the same moms will be envious of your decision and wish they had pierced their girls as infants too. Babies and little girls with little pierced ears celebrates their femininity and femaleness.

    Our ped encouraged me doing it when mommy could care for them. She did her daughter at six weeks right after her first DTP shot. She gave me some info for moms having their dd’s ears pierced to find the right person and place to do it.

    Would be happy to share by e-mail with any moms wanting more info or trying to decide ” to pierce or not to pierce.”

    Hope the remainder of your pregnancy is uneventful.

    Amy

    P.S. Go back and buy those pearl earring and put them in her nursery.
