Here I am at 26 weeks (yesterday). Depending on who you ask, third trimester. I still have trouble believing that there will be a baby at the end of all of this. It doesn't seem real. Obviously, I have a growing stomach and appetite, and I can feel him moving all the time, but my brain is having a hard time conceiving of the idea that eventually, there will be a little person here. Or that I will push that little person out of me. With little to no drugs.
Then other times, my mind is consumed with thoughts of the son that I am going to have in a short 12 weeks (because BabyJoe and I have decided that 38 weeks is a great time to come). I didn't know it was possible to love someone you've never met so damn much. I feel like every day I learn his personality a little more. I am going to have my work cut out for me when he gets here! He is on the move constantly - especially when Mr. Joe is talking to him. Or I'm complaining about claims at work :-) He responds the most to when I'm listening to music in the car. I hope he loves music as much as I do - so far it seems like it!
We received our very first "shower" gift off of our registry last night! It's an exersauser and it's adorable. It's also in a very large box in our living room until we can make the time to work on the baby's room hahaha.
Not much else has been going on in our little corner of the world. Most of my time is spent at work or at home thinking about the cleaning I should be doing but watching tv instead. Hopefully I will go into nesting mode soon or BabyJoe will have to wait a while till he has a room! I'll try to update more often, but my life is really not that exciting right now!!
