last week i told a coworker that i felt fantastic and it was true. the little one is moving regularly in the afternoons and evenings; feeling the baby is a huge sigh of relief. i read forums where women felt their babies at 16, 17, 18, 19, 20 weeks and i stopped because it made me nervous. he just needed more time. but he’s a trickster— he stays still whenever michael swaps hands with me!
i’ll share an outfit post soon and i’ll fit right into the “expecting a boy” stereotype: i look like i swallowed a basketball (maybe a basketball-sized cheeseburger with french fries). fixed-waist skirts are out of the question; i’ve been wearing elastic skirts and the bump is front and center. i didn’t announce to my students that i’m having a baby but they give me curious looks sometimes.
we bought the little guy a fox blanket but i haven’t decided on any other bedding for now. isn’t that print adorable? the whales are cute, too. i love it so much i might get another one.
