Where does the time go? - My little ticker says my baby is 4 lbs! He's definitely a little mover and groover- I can really feel how long he is getting.
My weight has been holding steady for the last month at +20 lbs. I don't know why I have stopped gaining, since I am still eating alot, well, maybe a little less since I am getting fuller faster. I think the baby is just taking from me now. My next OB appt is next Thursday, so it will be interesting to see how much he's grown in the last 2 weeks. Still lots of Braxton Hicks especially when I am sitting on the couch at night. I need to keep track of them. My OB said if 6 or more an hour I need to call her office. Getting a good night's sleep is getting a little harder. I feel like I toss and turn more and am getting up 2 times a night to go to the bathroom. I suppose it's all to prepare me for sleepless nights in the the months ahead.
My nursery is pretty much done - got my curtains hung this week. I need to post some pics. My arm's reach mini-cosleeper is coming in this week, so I am curious to see how that works out.
In other news, today is our 4 year wedding anniversary. This morning, my husband cradled his hands over my belly and felt Baby W moving all around. Such a peaceful, sweet way to start our anniversary day, considering 3 years of our marriage have revolved around trying to make this happen :)
I think we might go see the Hunger Games tonight, since we haven't been to the movies in eons.
We are still on the fence regarding circumcision. Oh my god, y'all, I watched a youtube video of it last night before going to bed and it was pretty horrific. I had a nightmare about circumcision last night. I guess we are lucky to be in a position to have to make a decision over this, but it's a hard one for me. I can see the pros and cons of each side, but I am leaning towards not doing it, because it just seems barbaric. The reason my husband wants to do it is, so that our son won't feel different from his peers. I would like for my son to be able to make his own decision regarding his body, but I know that it's alot more to go through to get circumcised when you are older. Kind of like how tonsil surgery is harder as an adult, which my husband will be having in a couple of weeks. He is going to get his tonsils and adenoids removed and his sinuses straightened out. He's been putting it off for years and we figure we might as well do it before the baby gets here and while we have COBRA. I hope this baby stays put until at least 37 weeks.
So my replacement at my husband's law office is trained - yay! Hence my leisurely morning of blogging. Although I feel like I have a million and one things to tend to. #1 on this list is getting the baby shower thank you notes done. Gotta do it.
That's all the news for this week. Hope all of you are doing well and enjoying the unseasonably warm spring weather we are having.
