Hi everyone 🙂
I know, I’m a few weeks behind on my Prego Mego posts. We have had quite a bit going on. These posts have probably taken a different turn but I still intend to do them.
If you would like to catch up on baby Cohen, you can click here. The posts will start out with the most recent.
We cannot tell everyone who reads this blog enough how thankful we are for all of your thoughts and prayers.
Cohen is kicking and moving all over the place! He is pretty sneaky though. As soon as I say the words “he’s kicking”, he will stop. So, I’m trying to indicate to hubs and friends when he is kicking, so hard that they can feel, without actually saying it. haha
I so want to savor each and every movement he makes because I think it’s amazing.
I’m not craving anything in particular. Nothing much sounds good. When I was with my girlfriends this past weekend, there was ooey gooey bars. Whitney’s mom made them and they were YUMMY! This is the only thing I can think of that I have kept wanting more of! I’m working on getting the recipe 🙂
I can tell I’m getting fuller quicker but hungry more often. That makes sense to me as le bebe grows.
I have no idea how much weight I’ve gained and I really don’t care. I know I’m starting to look different, but that makes sense. I’m growing another human inside me. I know I’m feeling bigger and well, I have the best reason ever! Maybe I’ll talk myself into checking my weight stats at our appointment Thursday.
Cohen hangs out on my bladder probably 80% of the time. He is low, really low!
Some things we are holding off on are the nursery and the showers. We are only holding off on the nursery because we have decided to sell our house. So until that transition is over, I will not work on the nursery. It makes me sad not to be doing a nursery, but I know it’s what is best for right now. I’m holding off on the big showers because I think it would just be too much for us. If things don’t go as planned, having had a big shower and getting lots of amazing things, I’m certain would make things harder. I think we will be blessed to get the things we will need to have by the time Cohen arrives, and we will enjoy all the little things we get along the way.
The first part of this pregnancy was a perfect and normal. The second part, not so much. However, I’m not going to stop celebrating that our son is in my tummy and doing wonderfully. Though I have some really terrible moments worrying about him and the future, I know that doesn’t change things. I’m still pregnant with our son and that makes me happy 🙂
In the past week things have been stretching! I’m having some pains off and on in my upper tummy but I think that’s typical. It looks like my belly button is being pulled every which way. I’m an innie. It’s getting harder to lean over which I tried to pretend wouldn’t happen.
I’m getting terrible sleep. I don’t think it’s as much thoughts as it is the fact that I CANNOT get comfy! I’m DRAGGING by 3pm everyday. Tips?
Elton (our pup) has been sniffing my belly. He also isn’t acknowledging me quite so much when I say “Cohen”. I think he has figured out I’m talking to someone and not trying to change his name.
Cohen is so lucky to have so many people who are thinking about him and praying for him 🙂
Cohen is going to have THE coolest baby book ever. It will be filled with emails and cards and pictures and so much love. That is one thing I can start working on 🙂
Well, here I am! I never thought I would post a bare belly prego pic but I figure why not. I’m big enough to tell I’m pregnant, but not big enough to looking like I’m popping just yet.
yes, I do have a itty bitty tattoo courtesy of being sixteen. It is a Chinese symbol and it means “happiness”. I didn’t think it would be legit if I edited these pics of myself for a prego mego post. Maybe it will be gone in my maternity pics? haha
We have so many friends who have sent or brought us little care packages. When we got the news of Cohen’s condition, we decided to spend some time just us. We had friends drop all kinds of treats off to us. We’ve gotten some thoughtful cards and goodies in the mail as well. We appreciate each and everyone one of them. I always have my camera out, as I’m sure you all know, so I’ve snapped a few pics. These pics will indeed go in Cohen’s baby book, along with all the cards…and probably emails and blog comments :o) He will know how many people out there love him.
Our friend Jen dropped these things off on our porch. The Pacifico & Puffs are an inside joke from our trip to Cabo last May. Hubs lived off those two things while in Mexico. The two other items are bread pudding….some of my favorite in town 🙂 Yes, I ate it for two days.
Some of our other friends, Kristen & Judd, put this on our porch the day we met with the first cardiologist. They knew we would benefit from these things for the 24 hours we cuddled in bed. Yes, hubby is a beer connoisseur, as you may have guessed.
Kyle & Jess brought us goodies over…..
pasta with sauce jess’ mom made.
My favorite, Better Batter
They also brought pizza, conversation hearts, beer…and well I’m sure there is more. They also brought these adorable Razorback salt & pepper shakers! They know how much we love the Razorbacks and how much I love salt & pepper shakers 🙂
Sweet Kate sent me Sprinkles cupcake mix and a wonderful prayer book that is quite dear to her.
hugs & kisses from Jamie
One of mine and hub’s friends we went to college with, Effie, sent us a sweet card and a book! I’m loving the book so far.
Thanks so much to everyone who has done anything for our family. Prayers, thoughts, cards, goodies, etc. are all SO SO thoughtful! I promise I’ll get around to sending thank you notes just as soon as I get around to replying to emails. Hopefully, soon! I’m starting to get a chance to read blogs again, which is nice. I feel out of the loop. I would MUCH rather read blogs that pack up my house…but I am.
Our next appointment is Thursday morning and it with our normal OB here in town. We will have a sonogram and I’ll do my glucose test. Hopefully, the second part of the amnio results will be in.
Our next appointments in Dallas are at the end of March.
Cohen’s prayer button is on my right sidebar if you would like to post it. The blog world (and really everyone we talk to) has/have been amazing prayer warriors!
