This Texas Baby: Week 26/27 Check-In

BABY'S TASK FOR THE WEEK: Listen up! That's right, your hearing is getting better and better everyday. Daddy wants to go buy a book that he can read to you before we go to bed every night, and I think that is the sweetest thing ever. Also, you just need to keep plumping up and developing the same way you have been.

SYMPTOMS: Tiny stomach, I think I have officially hit that mark where I really can no longer eat as much as I used to in one sitting anymore. But then I am starving two hours later. It's kind of frustrating, but it's ok, I know it's not going to be that way for much longer!

CURRENT MOOD: A little freaked out! I realized last Monday marked 3 months until your estimated arrival date! And then the fact that I have entered the 3rd and last trimester gets me going too. Oh don't get me wrong, baby girl, I am so excited to meet you but at the same time promise me you will give me the full 3 months I have left, ok?

THIS WEEK'S GETTING READY FOR BABY FINISHED HOMEWORK: I have been cleaning/organizing the house like a mad woman the past month or so, I am not sure if it is a precursor to nesting or what, but it's starting to make me tired! Thankfully, I would say your room is pretty much done, sure I would love to put up crown molding, but if it doesn't happen, it doesn't happen, I still think your room will look amazing!

Your daddy and I also took one of two childbirth classes and a breastfeeding class to help us be the most prepared we can be for your arrival. I thought the childbirth class would freak me out about what all is going to happen, but it really helped to calm me down and make me prepared for what's going to happen. I am excited to go to the 2nd class in December, during that one we get to take a tour of the hospital and see where you will be born!

NEXT WEEK'S GETTING READY FOR BABY HOMEWORK: Daddy and I picked out the curtain rod we like for your room, so I think I will go buy that this week and hope daddy can hang it up this weekend. Then we will just wait and see if anyone buys us the curtains we registered for for our baby shower. I should also have a lovey wall decal I orders for your room in this week, maybe we can convince daddy to stick that up this weekend too.
