Baby On Our Mind

My stomach looks like a small Mt. Everest, and it goes up and down, like an ocean wave. I readjust my position on the recliner, trying to breathe better. Kicks and tumbles, and all sorts ofย flips are going on in my womb ๐Ÿ™‚ Seriously, we may possibly have a future gymnast in there ๐Ÿ™‚

Last week I had my ultrasound and was so happy! Our prayer was that my placenta would move, soย I wouldn’t have to have a C-section, and it did! Baby was looking good, and a healthy weight.

We still have not hardly discussed names. I have no idea why. In fact, we never were like this with the others. Last night sent me into a bit of a panic, because I was having pretty strong contractions, and wasn’t feeling well, and I’m thinking “Oh no, the baby will come, we have no name for him or her,the car seat isn’t washed, etc. etc.

I did not have a good night, and this morning after a call to my midwife, I was put on bedrest. So, I’m currently pretty stuck to the recliner, and we will go in for a checkup tomorrow, and then go from there. Baby is not relaxing. Hardly stops moving. Does that mean sleepless nights coming up?? ๐Ÿ™‚

At any rate, we are super anxious to meet our sweet baby, and see this busy little person! I’m definitely being taught a lesson in patience ๐Ÿ™‚

Until then, we will do our best to stay healthy ๐Ÿ™‚

And here are a few pictures to close this post…

  1. God bless you, Jo! I know you will be so happy when you are holding that sweet bundle of joy in your arms instead of your belly! ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope all goes perfectly smooth for you. Praying for you.

  2. This reminded me of how my son was so active in the womb that that ultrasound technicians used to call in other technicians to witness it. And yes, he was/is just as active now. I’m terrified the circus will come through town and reclaim him. All I can say is good luck!
