Notes from the last week:
- I’m still getting used to using “he” instead of it/they/baby… then I excitedly catch myself and remember that we now know it’s a dude baby! Squee! I love having a pronoun!
- Baby has now graduated from the size of a mango to a “large mango”… creative, babyzone.com. Don’t overdo it now. Most importantly, he has a shot at viability in the outside world and is getting even bigger and stronger every day. Grow, baby, grow!
- I sucked it up and bought my first maternity wear, since even my elastic yoga pants were starting to give me a weird preggy muffin top. Umm, not sure why I waited this long because maternity leggings are THE BOMB. I am never changing out of these things. Ever. I highly recommend that every individual in America invest in a pair.
- Jeff and I have also sucked it up and begun serious name negotiations. We may very well need the full 16 weeks to agree on something because our very different tastes have precluded us from making much progress so far. As you can guess, he likes more traditional things while I am determined that our boy will be the only one in the county with his first name. We’ll see. 🙂
