Pregnancy Rambles

As I approach week 29, I can't believe how fast pregnancy goes. It's amazing how much has changed in the last 6 months and I really need to savor the last 11 weeks. More than anything, I really need to document this experience. Here are some pregnancy moments and memories:

*I have nearly peed myself multiple times... already. It's insane. It's like the minute I walk into the bathroom, restroom or stall, I have to go. And go RIGHT NOW! And getting my pants down with the full panel doesn't make the process go any quicker!

*I crave Mt. Dew. All. The. Time. I haven't had a single drop of the golden goodness since June 2011 and let me tell you, if I weren't pregnant, I would have given in by now.

*I'm not as tired as I was in the beginning but I still could nap every afternoon for 2-3 hours. I can't give into these naps though. If I do, I'm up all night.

*I haven't been too emotional or hormonal so far (James may beg to differ) but in the last week, I've teared up a few times. I'm slowly getting more emotional.

*I can't imagine being a Mom. I know it's going to happen but the idea of being responsible for a little person in just a few short months is just lost with me. Normal, non-pregnant Stephanie enjoys everything planned and in order. I know this is going to change 100% and I don't know how well I will do with that. Regardless, I'm going to be a wonderful Momma. No ifs or buts about it!

*Putting together a nursery is hard. Actually, it's impossible. I can't find anything in stores or online that I like so I've recruited my Mom and best friend to make what I need. And the furniture? Forget about it!

*I have stayed pretty active during my pregnancy but I haven't been eating the best. I can't stand vegetables. At all. It takes everything in me to have at least 1 serving a day. I am sure if Connor grows up and hate his veggies, it's going to be because of me.

*I have the strangest dreams, which I have read isn't all that unusual during pregnancy but I swear because of these lifelike dreams, I'm not sleeping as deeply as I was pre-pregnancy.


  1. I think after the first trimester (which went SO slowly for me) it goes by fast.

    I hated veggies when I was pregnant too, fortunately I like them again and Hunter surprisingly likes them too.

    Also, I'm a planner and like things in order, at first it's hard but eventually you'll get the baby on a schedule and that helps so much!

  2. Oh the emotions! I was never the sentimental-crying-type, but now I find myself crying because I get so overcome with LOVE for my girl! It's the craziest thing. My husband definitely doesn't get it...ha!
