On Thursday, I went to a prego party! Ever since I found out I was pregnant it seemed like everyone I knew was finding out they were expecting too! So I thought it would be fun to get all the girls I knew who were pregnant together for dinner so we could just hang out and chat about what else, but being pregnant!
Since we are all so close in age and due around the same time it was so easy to talk and get to know everyone, and share what our experiences were. For a lot of us it’s our first pregnancy, and it is a very new, exciting, but scary time for all of us, so it was nice to know we aren’t going through it alone.
We talked about everything: from weight gain, to cravings, to weird bodily functions. Some of the girls I had never met before, but felt like I already knew them because we had such similar experiences thus far. Overall, we had a great time, and I look forward to the next time we get together in a month or so to see how far everyone has come along.
On Saturday, my sister, mom, and my friend Savannah went crib shopping. We checked out a couple places: Baby Furniture Plus and Shower Me With Love in Charlotte. There were so many cribs to choose from! I was glad to finally look at some in person, versus online, so I could see which types I like better than others. I have finally come to a conclusion on one thing… the theme!
I call it “classic glam.” I love the simplicity of theses rooms, but it also has that certain flair meant for a special girl.
On Monday, while DH did his usual Football thing, I stayed at home and watched my belly move for about an hour. Oh the simple things in life. J For the past month or so, I have been feeling her kick quite often, everyday in fact. And I definitely don’t take it for granted. But I haven’t seen her kick until this week. I literally watched my stomach move for about an hour due to her wiggles and movements. It was way cool! I am still so in awe, because I still can’t believe there is a living human being inside of me!
I am really enjoying writing this blog, and reading from all of your comments and input! Last week I asked for you guys to vote for our Breast Cancer T-shirt, and I loved reading all your comments. I really do read them all, and I am so happy to hear all the love and support. I have chose Amber Schoenfelder as the winner of the random reader giveaway, so congratulations to her! I really hope our shirt wins, because it is for a cause close to my heart, and I am sure many of yours too.
Thanks again for reading! Until next time..
