Holy heck! Where is the time going? With my first pregnancy the time seemed to drag. With my second pregnancy the time moved along pretty quickly and with this third pregnancy it’s like a flashing beam of light.
Today I bought only the second baby item for little bro. A set of anchor printed sheets from Target. I was doing a Target trip and went down the baby bedding aisle on a whim, saw the sheets, and thought I should buy them because HELLO only 13 weeks and 5 days left!
I guess the first step is acceptance or is it denial? I was in denial for a while but I’m starting to accept it because my belly won’t let me forget that there is a baby in it! 🙂
Of course, I’m excited! But THREE kids ages 4 and under can really make your mind do crazy shit. Like, not let you sleep because you are having all the feelings and all the thoughts and thinking about how you just feel like you adjusted to having two kids.
I am literally just sitting down for the first extended amount of time today and it’s 7:16pm. Val is in this clingy phase and wants to be touching me all the time. I do not remember this with G. Maybe I blacked it out? I totally wouldn’t mind her clingy-ness IF I didn’t have a 26 week belly to lug around. Holding her along with my big tank is, for lack of a better word, challenging. The only place it feels somewhat comfortable is putting her on top of my bump but she isn’t light so the bump gets tired.
Weirdest symptom of this pregnancy is that nothing, not any kind, no food sounds or tastes appealing or delicious. Huh? So I’ll grab a bowl of ice cream and then look at it like, eh or worse, not finish it. So weird.
So, I’m gonna get myself motivated. I’m gonna go through the 49 bins of girl clothes and decide what I can keep for Val, donate or sell.
I’m gonna start buying this baby bro some clothes because he needs some. Third child problems already.
Then I’m gonna make a list of things that I’ll need to buy or do to get his room ready.
Ready or not he is gonna be here in 13 or so weeks!
