On Wednesday we’ll be 25 weeks.
My my, the time is flying by!!
Nausea finally completely tapered off around 20 weeks – Praise the Lord!
Ive already gained a whopping 20 pounds thanks to my sweet neighbor who keeps bringing me Belgian Truffles and our dear friend in Seattle who sent us two dozen chocolate covered strawberries for Valenties Day. Thanks guys!
Baby is active and I love it! Im not one who really enjoys being pregnant, but this is my favorite part…feeling lil’ bit moving around and stretching those tiny limbs. Even the kids have been able to feel her kicking which is so special!
At my last appointment, my doctor told me:
“Our goal is to get you to 32 weeks. Every week after that is a bonus. You most certainly will not be carrying this baby to term“.
If nothing drastic changes, the plan is to take her at 37 weeks. Crazy to think thats a short 12 weeks away!! The time has flown and Im both excited and nervous as I think how soon she could be here.
So we are a bit of a “house divided” when it comes to what we’re going to call our sweet girl. The name hasn’t changed, she will be Gabriella Juliette. Ive ordered things with monograms, so we’re committed:-). But, Gabriella is a big name for a little girl.
We’re toying with whether to call her
I love that “Gigi” is so original and it means her nickname would have the same initial as her “big girl” name. Plus, there seem to be a surpluss of “E” names these days…Ellie, Emmie, Elena…. But Ive kinda gotten attached to hearing Evie call this baby “Ella” for weeks now.
