32 weeks, I can't believe it. I feel like time has really gone by fast because I just recently started to actually feel pregnant. Even though I've been bloated and feeling this change since about week seven. People have recently noticed the baby belly, even though I noticed it at week 13. I "felt" movement week 16, after the ultrasound on week 19 I knew what I started to feel was baby. Week 26 I had to get monitored and the nurse pointed out the baby's hiccups, week 29 I finally started to realize what they were.
Now all I want is the time back to enjoy these changes, movements and wish I could have realized even sooner what it all was. I am enjoying knowing the baby is head down, her butt is on one side of my ribs and her feet are nicely tucking and kicking up under my ribs. She is still moving on both sides of my body and keeping me up at night. I really just can't wait to meet her.
Slowly the countdown is coming. I'm trying to prepare as much as possible for what I can but it's so hard to try to prepare for something that I have no idea how it can go. Reading up on this whole process, pregnancy, labor and delivery has helped. But it has also just made me realize that whatever I plan won't happen that way. I have been reading up, trying to keep an open mind and prepare myself to take things as they come.
So instead of reading about labor and delivery I decided I would read a little about what happens after little cookie gets here. Again, it seems as though how much I plan for it probably won't quite be the same. I found out today that cookie is going to be a Taurus, which says she is going to be stubborn. Yep, so I have that to look for. A very "strict to follow the routine" kind of baby which may be a little hard for me since I couldn't wait to get out, go for walks and try to meet up with other friends and get this little girl to learn to "go with the flow". May be a little challenge.
