I am 27 weeks pregnant today with Cohen 🙂 I cannot believe I’m almost to the third trimester!
I don’t really like how quick time is going by! It seems a bit crazy to say that I want time to go by slow considering I’m starting to catch myself complain a bit…my back hurts, I can’t sleep, I can’t breath after I eat, etc. I just don’t care though. I know it’s all SO very worth it! I’m really trying to savor each and every day with Baby Cohen in my belly (uterus, I know). I’m REALLY scared about what is to come once he arrives. There is just no way around being scared. Period. I’ve come to terms with that.
He is a dancing machine. He sleeps a lot but when he is awake is he moving like crazy. The outside of my belly moves around and it’s pretty funny. This morning, I was in bed laying on my side and it was seriously like he was taking his fist and banging on my side over and over again.
I feel HUGE this week. My longer shirts are getting shorter. I’ve had many people say “man, he is going to be a big baby” once I tell them how far along I am. He may be big. I HOPE he is big. The bigger the better. Hubby was almost 10 pounds and I was 7.5. I feel huge everywhere, not just the belly : /
Speaking of hubs and I, I’ve been meaning to post some of our baby pics. I forget. I’ll try to make myself a note for next week.
I’m SO hungry in the mornings. I don’t care if I eat a HUGE bowl of cereal, an hour later, I’m starving!!!
I’m not craving anything specific. I like green apples, Mr.Salty Pretzels and Braum’s breakfast burrito.
We’ve been playing music for Cohen 🙂 Hubby came home one day with a list of songs for me to buy off iTunes and a set of earphones he went and purchased at Best Buy.
We’ve been doing lots of packing and I think it irritates Cohen. I think he rather me be doing his nursery, but instead I’m leaning over packing boxes, sitting on the floor going through things and moving things around. I think it irritates him because in turn, I get pains and I hurt…pleasure is worth the pain, right?
I’m not getting to do nesting like a normal mommy. I’m trying to come to terms with that too. My nesting does not consist of cleaning out my house and making it all beautiful for baby Cohen to arrive home to. I don’t get to set up all his little fun stuff. My nesting is packing my house, trying to sell house and cars, going to doctor’s appointments and finding a place to live close to where Cohen will be born and much more. I’m okay with this. Sure, it stress me out sometimes because I simply can’t think straight. But, I’d give up everything I have to bring my baby home!! wherever that home may be!
We are still on for our doctor’s appointments coming up. We meet with our normal OB here in town next Thursday. The 29th, we go to Houston to have an ECHO with a cardiologist and then meet with a surgeon. The 31st, we have another ECHO in Dallas with the same cardiologist we met with previously (You can see more details on the right sidebar under “Cohen’s Story”). We will also meet with high risk OB and have sonogram and meet with a surgeon in Dallas. It will be a busy week! Also, I wanted to say and make note – I think I’ve lead to confusion as far as hospitals. I’ve referred to them BOTH as Texas Children’s. The Dallas hospital is Children’s Medical Center and the Houston hospital is Texas Children’s. Sorry! As I’ve mentioned, my mind is going 100 miles a minute and I just knew they were both hospitals for children..but I just wanted to clarify for those who have asked.
Here I am today… after dinner :o) …and after a few hours of packing!
I think he he has gotten a bit higher but he still moves low whenever he wants to!
This is probably going to be my new bed……
Hubs and brother-in-law moved it in the bedroom today. I know, it’s not beautiful. I don’t care. It is SO comfortable! I figured I might as well try it since sleeping in the bed has become such an issue. It won’t even work with 7 pillows!
Cohen’s daddy is being extra good to me which helps me out so much. Yesterday, he came home with some of my FAVORITE cookies!
You should have seen the smile on my face. These cookies are from Rick’s Bakery in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Hubs and I went to school at UofA and Rick’s is awesome! He had a little delivery made to him at work from a friend who had gone to Fayetteville.
Hubs also cooked us dinner last night! He made this….
Ritz Poppy Seed Chicken and you can find it here.
