Its hard to be a baby

7 months pregnant

on July 8, 2013

Hello third trimester! Sometimes I feel so close to being done and other times it feels really far away. Its going to be a HOT summer. I was outside most of the day for the last few days and the heat was rough. Maybe I will move to Iceland for month of August.

We are also very firm on a name at this point. I guess anything could happen, but we are pretty sure it will be:

Henry James Williams

That’s actually the first time I’ve typed it–it looks pretty darn good!

How far along? 28 weeks 4 days

Total weight gain/loss: Now up about 14 pounds–right on track!

Maternity clothes? Yeah. I need to get them organized–think I’m still in denial.

Stretch marks? Nope. No linea nigra yet either. I can’t remember when I got it with George. It was pretty light and went away soon after delivery. Curious to see if I get it this time.

Sleep: Pretty good. Once I get settled in with all my pillows I’m usually good for the night. I’m only getting up to pee sometimes.

Movement: Constantly. He is a KICKER. George was a roller.

Food cravings: Ice cream. Dairy in general seems to be my go-to.

Gender: Big boy.

Belly Button in or out? Half way out.

Wedding rings on or off? On. Never had any swelling with G, so hopefully this will be the same.

What I miss: Not wearing a hip brace! I have to wear this stupid hip brace 24 hours a day or my pubic bone really suffers. It really helps keep my pelvis stable, but its no fun to wear it all the time.

What I am looking forward to: Getting George’s room set up for two! I’ve been thinking about the best way to do it, but its really nice that we don’t have much to do before the baby comes. George will stay in the crib until well after he is born. He doesn’t really seem ready for a toddler bed yet. Henry will be with us until he is at least 6 months, so we are trying to minimize the changes for George as much as possible. Mainly, I just need to set up the second closet for the new one and do some minor rearranging to the changing area. And get out all of the newborn items!!

    LOVE the name Henry. It was a contender for us both times. So exciting to bring another boy home soon!
