Hi! We are officially halfway through this pregnancy. Crazy crazy pants!
Also, I don’t get this size thing. I have four different apps (that is probably the problem) and apparently this week the baby is the size of a mango/banana/endive (none of those are remotely the same size as each other)…but another app said the baby was mango-sized last week so….
I was a basket case this week. We are just days away from our mid-point (can’t believe the baby will be here in 4.5 months!) ultrasound, also known as the anatomy scan, where we spend an hour looking at all the parts of the baby to make sure everything is developing properly (the chambers of the heart, brain…every little itty bitty thing).
I don’t know why I think worrying will somehow prepare me for the worse case scenario, when all it’s doing is taking me out of feeling my happiness now. Maybe I should focus on some wins I had this week? Which includes getting my hands on my favorite açaí bowl from South Block! This is the pb&j bowl:
Work is going well, even if I still have yet to break the news to them (gulp) and will be having those conversations this week. I also went to the gym on Saturday (formerly dubbed “Migraine Saturdays) and managed to NOT come down with a pounding head attack. I also walked a ton, and had some really great quality moments with AM. There is a lot to feel blessed and grateful for.
Anyways! We get to see how the baby is doing in a few days, and we are both thrilled and nervous and excited (I mean nervousness and excitement are two sides of the same coin) because we have already become so attached to the baby. I’m already envisioning holding him on my shoulder and smelling his head and how amazing that’s going to feel (sniff, sniff).
Here’s to week 21!
