This week marks 32 weeks of pregnancy. It’s hard to believe how fast the entire experience has gone by and how soon my daughter will be at home with my husband and I. Aside from the crazy sickness and unbelievable exhaustion in the beginning months I have had a fairly easy pregnancy so far, for that I am so grateful! Of course in the past couple of months there has been the random swelling of my feet, ankles and legs leaving me feeling more like a tree trunk than a beautiful glowing mom to be, but for the most part things aren’t too bad.
There really is no feeling like being pregnant. People ask me all the time “what does it feel like when she moves?”. Well, honestly there is no way to describe it, it is like nothing i’ve ever felt in my life, I feel blessed to be able to experience it. I have bonded so much with my daughter and we have been through a lot together already as well. All of that gushy stuff aside, I am soooo ready to have my body back to myself.
The things I miss the most are my skinny jeans, heels, and an occasional after work cocktail. I know the skinny jeans might take a little while to get back into and the heels won’t be any more practical carrying around an infant than a giant pregnant belly, but they will be much more of an option once she is here! I have already started designing her birth announcements and picked out outfits for her first photoshoots. I have plans for getting my body in better shape than before I got pregnant and I am so eager to just be a mom.
So, as much as I am enjoying the closeness with my daughter I am so excited for her to arrive. These last 8 weeks will hopefully go smoothly and quickly, although it feels like it’s been December forever already. Thank you to all of you that tweet me to check in on me and the baby and for all of your support so far. I am looking forward to a couple of months off of work and Blog Trends to spend time with my new daughter and my husband. 8 weeks to go!
