Joe and I both cried big tears of joy. Then my husband immediately started planning sports outings and scouting for season tickets. He’s watched more sports in the last two months than he has since we started dating. I, on the other hand, have hit a serious nesting phase. I even decorated the house for fall, which has never even hit my radar in the past. My primary motives are all centered around Baby.
We’ve been spending the weekends getting the house ready, moving things around, cleaning out closets, and yes, registering for baby stuff.
At first, I was so overwhelmed I told Joe I might just register at Sur la Table and cross my fingers that no one noticed. But, after some suggestions from good friends we were able to wrap our minds around what we’re going to need and what we’re not.
At least we think so.
Most of my food aversions are gone. I can eat salads again, walk through any section of the grocery store without feeling sick, and at least for today I’m not craving any red meat. There are a few foods that I still don’t care to touch, like almond butter and raw walnuts.
It’s hard to believe that Baby Green will be here in 130 days. Incredible.
Just in the last week, I’ve been able to feel our baby move. If you’re a mom, you know exactly how this humbled me beyond words. I could just sit with my baby while he wriggles in my belly and be in total bliss for hours. Nothing else would be necessary.
