could be 6 weeks, could be 11 really. his movements have become less twitchy and more controlled, and yesterday i'm pretty sure i felt his foot press on my hand as i held it against my belly.
things i will miss once he's here:
watching my belly move
feeling him fight back when i hunch over or wear pants with a tighter waistband
getting woken up by his squirms in the morning
an excuse to buy new clothes because nothing else fits
danny rubbing my belly, feeling baby brown move
the sense of wonder (and weirdness) that comes from watching my body make drastic changes as i actually grow a person
looking pregnant and getting to rub my belly
fabulous hair and nails
hearing his heartbeat at my appointments
things i will not miss once he's here:
sleeping on my stomach!
energy and desire to work out
gradually fitting into my clothes again
having my body back, besides nursing
being able to pop my back by twisting it
being able to bend over
fewer aches and pains
not having to pee all the time
we have finally rearranged our room (since we have just one) and definitely have room for a bassinet, maybe even a mini crib or pack and play and a small changing table/drawer. and i have a corner to decorate for him.
lastly-i know every pregnant girl asks this, but what on earth do i need for my hospital bag? danny's? and when should i pack it? help please!
