The baby is kicking periodically as I type this. His activity patterns change every few days now. For the past few days he’s been really active in the morning. I never get tired of watching my stomach. He seems to respond to my voice a bit. If I talk to him right after he kicks/moves he’ll move again in a quicker motion. If I don’t say anything it will usually just be those one or two kicks with some time in between the next. It feels like a little conversation. It makes me anxious for him to get here – to hold him, see him, know him. Other mothers keep telling me that I’ll miss the feeling of having him with me and all of his little movements. I know I will. It already feels so strange wanting him HERE right now but also wanting to keep him all to myself. I’m trying to take it all in right now and I’ve been enjoying it so much. I really have enjoyed being pregnant so far and I feel blessed to be able to say that.
This weekend will be for hanging out inside, cleaning, laundry, working on baby registries and shower guest lists, working on Pure Romance, cuddling, Netflix, bubble baths, hot chocolate, hanging out at my Parent’s house and overall relaxation. I’m going to savor every second of it.
