Things here are moving at turtle speed...it seems like we have so little time left before this baby arrives but some days it feels like we just found out we were pregnant!
We've registered, painted the room, bought a few things for decorations, signed up for a birthing class, and basically have done everything we can to prepare and are just waiting. Last night I was having the worst Braxton-Hicks contractions I've had so far...I couldn't even sit down on the couch because it was too soft :) And I've started getting this new odd sensation in my upper back...whenever I squat to feed the cats or pick something up I get a tingle straight up my spine and then it spreads across my upper back and shoulders into little pops of itchiness...very odd. Luckily I've been in the kitchen each time it has happened with scissors nearby to stick down the back of my shirt and ease the itchiness but it is the weirdest feeling ever.
Baby Girl No Name is active and heavy and makes her presence known to Amelia and I everyday...she rolls and flips around as if she is a ballerina or an ice skater and is practicing for the Olympics...she's crazy. It's odd for me since I am in general fairly small...I weigh a ton but I have a fairly small frame, 5 feet tall, no hips, so yeah this is quite the experience for me...sometimes it feels like she is stretched out from hip to hip!
We've narrowed our name choices down to our top five so feel free to let us know your preferences. If I knew how to add those vote buttons I would totally do that but I have no desire this morning to attempt to figure it out...so just tell us what you like...the middle name is Evenia (my grandmother's middle name)...so go ahead sound it out, say it out loud, write it down, and vote, vote, vote!
Have a great weekend everyone!
