. . . for Lauren and Lauren: 25 and 26 weeks

December 2, 2015

25 and 26 weeks

I feel like time is going very fast these days!  As much as I'm looking forward to not being pregnant, I am getting a little more nervous as time gets closer to our baby boy being here.  I feel anxious about what our days will look like, how Addilyn will do with a new baby and how I'll survive with no sleep for a long time!  I cannot wait to meet our sweet boy and am so so grateful he is on his way, but I am definitely feeling more nerves these days about how our transition will go.  I've been enjoying Addilyn a ton lately and her personality is just becoming so funny and enjoyable.  I get nervous thinking about not being able to give her as much attention and how I'm sure she'll struggle with the transition.  

I'm feeling big!  I am starting to have a hard time bending over or sitting with Addi and playing.  The other afternoon we were playing for about an hour and half of chase, dancing and playing around on the floor and I was so tired after.  It makes me wonder how the next 14 weeks will go!  Chris was out of town last weekend and like normally when he's gone, I slept quite poorly.  Thankfully this last week has been a little better with sleep.  It is hard for me to get comfortable and sleep more than two hours straight without waking up, most nights.  

I've been doing a really good job working out the last few weeks.  About four or five times a week I've done a workout video.  Either a modified Fitness Blender video, ones I've found on You Tube, or a maternity one on Beach Body on demand.  I feel good when I do them, and hope that it helps my recovery and ability to get back in shape after the baby is here.  (Not making a difference in weight gain - that just keeps on coming!) On Thanksgiving I did a 5K Turkey Trot with my sister and mom.  We did it last year, but walked this year! I've always thought it'd be fun to do a race when you're pregnant and someday tell our baby that he did a 5K. :)

I feel baby boy move all the time.  A few times I can see my belly shake from the outside and it still surprises me.  I remember near the end when it gets so clear that there's a hand or foot moving across your belly and I'm sure we'll get there soon!  It amazes me that he's really in there growing and moving all around.  

While I may be feeling lots of nerves these last two weeks, I am beyond excited to hold our sweet baby and have him join our family.  14 more weeks baby boy!

I'm really nervous about how my son will react to the new baby too. He loves babies but he's never had one around 24/7, taking so much of mom & dad's attention. But I keep thinking how I couldn't imagine having grown up without my sister, so I'm just hoping that I'm doing the best thing for him in the long run. I'm also nervous about going back to work. It seems that I have a hard time getting my grading and lesson plans done as it is, and then just the guilt of leaving two. My mom watches them, and that is a big blessing, but I don't want it to be too much for her.
