Do I write that every time I do a pregnancy update?!
It’s just that time seems… to be… flying!!!
We somewhat finished the nursery and I can’t wait to show you guys how it turned out. It’s simple, but classy. It’s not something I would have thought of doing for our first, so it’s fun to try something new.
I still need to sort through all of Bastien’s old clothes and wash them. Last time around the entire nursery was DONE by 32 weeks, but knowing that I am more of a late birther (10 days late last time!) than an early one, I am not in a rush. I think it’s going to bring up a lot of memories digging out those onesies again…. it’s bittersweet knowing I will never see a teeny tiny Bastien again but so exciting to think his little brother will be in those clothes soon.
I haven’t gained as much weight this time around (despite two large weight gains the last two visits…) but the big ball I’m carrying around is still pretty uncomfortable. He’s SUCH a mover and his positioning is the exact same as Bastien right up to his little bum sticking out of my right top side. So, let’s just say I have pretty low expectations for his sleeping….
I have been naughty and haven’t taken any belly shots or even bought a baby book. It’s on my long to-do list of things that need to get done before baby arrives. Amazing how things are different this time around. Are there any baby books you guys love and can recommend?
And lastly, I started taking iron pills and the difference has been night and day. Readers may have noticed that my posts have been a little more sporadic. I’ve just been so exhausted/dealing with the house that I had no energy left. I am so glad I started taking them.
And lastly, I am starting to think of the best way to introduce baby brother and smooth over the transition for Bastien with sharing his mom and papa’s attention. Any tips?
