Random Baby Thoughts

I have baby on the brain this week. I apologize if I'm bombarding you all too much with pregnancy-related posts.

Most of my thoughts for the last couple days have been related in some way to baby and/or pregnancy. I think it's just because my whole weekend is full of baby events, and I'm really looking forward to it. These are some of the things running through my head:

Random Baby-Related Thoughts

1. Our maternity photos are being taken tomorrow! I'm really looking forward to it. Some friends of ours from church, who also happen to have a photography business, are doing them for us, and I'm really excited to see how they turn out! They've done a lovely job on other maternity sessions. I'm a little stressed though about whether Saturday will be a bad hair day or not though - my hair is so unpredictable.

2. My baby shower is on Sunday! Not only will it be fun to be the center of attention for a day (hey, what can I say, I'm a ham), but I'm so looking forward to seeing all my family and friends again.

3. I'm also looking forward to taking inventory of our gifts on Monday and determining what I still need to get. Then much of January and February will be spent filling in the gaps. I'm such a planner, it's been killing me not knowing what I should buy and what I should wait to buy - that dilemma will soon be behind me!

4. I'm planning on spending much of next week organizing the nursery. Then I just have to work on finishing some decorative touches . . .

5. I think my body and baby must know exactly when I hit a new week in the pregnancy. This whole week I've been feeling smaller than normal, and then the day I hit 32 weeks, BAM! The belly pops out more. I'm feeling quite round now. Pictures coming next week.

6. When I stand up straight and look down, I can no longer see my feet. Now if I want to check to see if my toe nail polish is chipped, I must lean forward ever so slightly. Not that I wear toe nail polish, because I even have troubles taking off my shoes these days . . .

7. I think this pregnancy has been unusually asymptomatic lately, except for this expanding middle of mine. And the little man's constant kicking (which you know I love). I'm quite okay with having a largely asymptomatic third trimester.

See? Not a single non-baby thought. Don't worry, this won't become a weekly occurrence . . . I do think about other things too . . .

Oh I hope you have a wonderful shower! And I'm so the opposite of no. 3! Haha, I want to buy as little as humanly possible for the baby myself. If I don't get it from a shower, I'll probably try and get away with not having it. I know, I'm already well on my way to being a GREAT mother... :P

Have fun at your shower and I can't wait to see the maternity pictures! I think it's totally normal at this point to be thinking so much about your little man. He'll be here soon! :)

Ohhhh I want to see pictures of your maternity shoot! Please share :)

I can NOT believe you are 32 weeks! In my head, our pregnancies our very close together, even though there is almost 6 weeks difference. 32 weeks seems like such a long way away for me!

I sweet talked my hubby into painting my toes when I was huge with child! ;)

All I can think about is baby things too!

Amber said...

It's so fun how the first baby consumes you! Then you have more and you have to share with the other children. God made Mama's with a lot of love to go around. :) I'm sure your hair will be just perfect! And you remind me so much of my friend, she's pregnant with her first, and I think the girl has everything planned to a t. Cracks me up. But I remember...I made a lot of lists when I was pregnant with Q. ;)

Ashley said...

Oh I like hearing about the pregnancy! It's so much fun! Sounds like a very exciting week - enjoy!

Brittany Ann said...

I, too, am baby-centric in my brain. I try not to be, but I can't help it!

Jessica said...

You have so many exciting things coming up! Enjoy them all. And random, but my cousin's shower is on Sunday, too! I hope you have a great time at yours :-)

Amanda said...

You SHOULD have baby on the brain! You're going to be a MOM! Woohoo! I hope you have a blast taking pictures and enjoying your baby shower! Sounds like the perfect weekend to me!

Haha, you have every right to talk and think "all things baby"! Us baby fever readers enjoy it too! :) Have fun with your photo shoot! So fun!!

Jenene said...

How can you not think about the 24/7? That's all I think about. A baby completely changes your life, long before you give birth.

I'm very anxious for my last baby shower. I wish mine was as soon as yours!

You're so lucky to be able to do a pregnancy photo shoot. I'm sure it will be beautiful!

Melanie said...
