23 Week Bumpdate

March 13, 2018

Hi cute guy!! This last week has been pretty uneventful, which we like! And looking back, it seems like that has been your pattern for the past few weeks haha. Dad and I bought you a bunch of new clothes last week, and have also spent a lot of time trying to figure out what we’re going to do with the nursery. I’ve been in super nesting mode, and it has been hard to try and figure out what to do with all the energy! When I was this pregnant with Carter, we were in DC, and when we came home, the nursery furniture arrived and we got to put it together. But this time, the furniture is already put together, so what the heck else am I supposed to do??? Your dad and I have decided to wait another month and a half to redecorate the nursery, so I don’t want to do that yet, and I feel like it’s too soon to rewash all the clothes. I’m just so ready for you to get here.

I went and got the prenatal massage that your dad gave me for Valentine’s Day last night! It was so awesome. It felt really good, but you LOVED it. You were wiggling around the whole time. It was fun to feel you be so active. We also had another ultrasound yesterday just to check on you, and you were wiggly then too! I have a feeling you are going to be an energetic little guy! Don’t tell your dad, but I think you kind of look like him. I joked yesterday that you looked like me, but as of right now, you have his face shape. Granted, you only weigh like a pound, but still. I also see a lot of Carter in your face, which makes my momma heart burst with happiness.

Probably the most noticeable thing about my pregnancy this last week is how emotional I’ve been. I feel like I’ve been all over the board: happy, sad, angry, exhausted, anxious, excited. It’s a lot! Your poor dad. Hopefully the hormones settle down eventually!

Thank you for another uneventful, wonderful week. Keep wiggling, and keep growing! We love you!
