26 Weeks...

Wow, I suck at blogging lately. I have just been too busy being pregnant, working and prepping for baby girl's arrival.

I am still so in awe of this whole pg thing. I feel pretty normal at this point, other than my protruding belly and how tired I am. I feel baby girl in there banging around everyday now, some does she does more flips and kicks than others but mostly she moves around plenty enough to keep me reassured. i think she knows her mom is a paranoid freak and is quick to remind me that she is ok in there, thankfully.

Time is just flying i can't believe I am on the cusp of entering my third trimester. We have mostly finished the nursery, a few additions on the wall and minor things here and there, but it's painted, the furniture is in, it looks really good. My MIL even made up the crib with the bedding. We do need to get a blind and a lamp, but mostly we're done.

I registered at BRU and found there's not a lot I need, which is wonderful. Baby girl is the first grand baby all around, so the grandparents have gone mad buying us all the big gear. I got a couple gently used items from friends. But the things I need most now are outfits and towels and such. So I registered for the extras, that will be great if we get them, but aren't necessities.

A few parenting fears are creeping in here and there, sometimes I wonder how I will have the energy once she arrives, I am so bushed all of the time right now, I really hope that's a pg thing and I will regain some of my spunk not too long after delivery.

I have about 10 weeks left of work and I think I will be ready to go when it's time. I can't wait to have a year off!! Clark will be off for the summer with me, which will be great.

I have a few labour and delivery fears niggling at the back of my mind, but I figure I can't control how it will all happen, so I am trying to teach myself to roll with it. We start pre.natal classes in a week or so, so that should be interesting.

Mostly I am hanging out in my daughter's nursery feeling incredibly blessed.
