How you can love somebody that you haven’t even meet? It’s day four of maternity leave and I am so emotionally ready to meet you that I cry and long to see your face. I want to be able to hold you in my arms, to be able to enjoy just being with you. It’s okay Savannah, you can come. We are ready for you. Your father and I are so excited to see you. God grant us the strength and patience to be able to make it through this time of waiting for her arrival. I am so anxious to meet you that I daydream about me and your father holding you in our arms to see your smile, sitting on our front porch feeling the cool breeze brush my hair, feeling you move. It makes me thank God for this glorious afternoon with the sun shining. It makes me smile in anticipation of playing with you right here on our front yard, right here in the green grass of this august day.
See you soon…
Today we went to the doctor and we found out we are having a girl. We are both very excited. It was pretty cool, the ultrasound tech was like are you ready? Uh yeah! A pause and you are having a girl! I was like okay! Last thursday we felt noodle kick for the first time. It was so cool. I have enjoyed this next phase a lot. I like this connection I feel between me and noodle. Now we have to to figure out what color to paint noodle’s room. She has a real name of course, but we’ve been calling her “baby girl” since we left the ultrasound.
This past weekend we started our bathroom remodel which was to say interesting. A bit stressful and little uncomfortable due to the hard as rock beds at the cheap hotel that we got for a couple days. Due to the fact that my body is always changing it was interesting trying to get comfortable. Lets just say I got creative with the extra bedding. But we made it through. What’s important is the fact that we have a working shower and toilet Yeah!!!!! Hunger. That is what I am feeling now all the time. A cute growing belly and the need to eat is quite an urgency. mmmmmm chicken pot pie mom made over the weekend. Enjoying the need to eat whenever noodle says.
Today is the big game packers vs steelers honestly it doesn’t matter to me who wins. Today to me is a great day to spend with family and friends. The highlights will be of coarse the commercials and let’s not forget the food. Oh the food….mmmmmmm meatballs, little weenies, chips and dip, hot wings and of coarse pulled pork that Alan made yesterday. The fact that I am now in my second trimester I am hungry a lot. Today is going to be all about the food and of coarse football right. 🙂
I love being pregnant now that I am past the nausea stage. Lots of amazing and wonderful feelings. So many changes, physical and emotional. Being that this is my first time, I just never know what each day will bring. One day I have nausea, the next I am having back pain. I have to admit when we first found out, it just didn’t feel real even though I was having all the normal symptoms fatigue, nausea, etc. When we saw the first ultrasound (the blob), even though we couldn’t see much detail, we knew the baby was there.
The next appointment I saw the real ultrasound with much more detail and it was awesome to see. Today I feel really good, no back pain and I have weekend off. Yeah! I went out to dinner with some friends from work and had great food. I’m feeling pretty full and pretty good. I am just enjoying each day and looking forward to what each day will bring and each phase of this great experience with my wonderful husband.
