After taking both kiddos to a prenatal appointment, and not getting a second to focus or think about this baby, I decided to sign up for the "bump group". Its group prenatal appointments, lasting 2 hours, where you get to meet other moms due at the same time as you and talk with some awesome midwives. I figured that this extra time would be well spent focusing on this baby #3, even if it is only a few hours a month. I had my first meeting tonight. It does feel weird being the only one who isn't a first time mom, but I'm sure my input will be a little helpful. (or at least humorous!)
I am in a better mental state lately than I was the first half of this pregnancy though. I'm getting more excited about having a little one again, the nursing, and mentally preparing for another delivery! G is most excited, and was the first one to feel this baby move. H doesn't seem to care, and is more concerned with her belly, and asks if there is a baby in her belly, when I try to explain that there is a baby in mine. We are slowly scraping together some names so we don't have to completely wing it when the time comes!
Some pregnancy and baby stats for you:
Baby is about 1 lb 9 oz
I have gained about 10-12 lbs so far
Baby heartbeat was 152 at my last appointment
Belly is measuring 1 week ahead (26 weeks at 25 weeks, no big deal)
If you have still stuck with this whiny post to the end, here's a recent belly picture!
