I am 24 weeks (well 25 now) preggo with a baby boy. We are so excited! Everything is going smoothly. My iron is a little low, but nothing compared to what it was with Nora and Lorelei. That was my first clue this was a boy. ;o) Other than that, I’m tired most days, but running around after a two year old will do that to you, preggo or not.
We have a few names on the list, but we’re pretty sure the middle name will either be Conrad or Henry. Both are family names. Conrad is a bit radical, but that’s Jason’s middle name, so it has grown on me.
I’ve started getting a little antsy about getting a few things done around the house before the baby arrives. With us getting snow every other weekend, the motivation level is low because most things require being outside at some point and it’s really cold. The snow never sticks around, though, so I am grateful for that. I know it didn’t stay cold this long last year, so it has been an adjustment and I am definitely ready for Spring! I’m down to three pairs of pants that technically still fit, but I’m sick to death of wearing them. In this pic I’m wearing tights on a snow-filled morning out of complete defiance of this weather.
The baby is moving around a lot more and has established a pattern of movement. He was head down at my last appointment (but may not stay that way), so I don’t have to worry like I did with Lorelei who stubbornly waited until about 37 weeks to get in position. He moves more often and is a bit more forceful with his kicks, so I’m thinking his personality will be more high energy. He doesn’t like it when you push on my belly (he shoves back), so I don’t think he will be as submissive as Lorelei. lol A little bit of spunk, perhaps? It’s fun to imagine how he will be and what he will look like, that’s the fun part of being pregnant. He will be our last, so I’m trying to soak in the moments. 15 weeks to go!
