Number 1. Matt talking to the baby. Just about everyday Matt says "excuse me, I need to have a moment with my baby" from there he will put his head on my belly, give it a little kiss and talk to her. Sometimes he starts laughing and I ask him what's funny. He tells me that him and baby are telling each other jokes or secrets and that I can't hear them. This morning he gave her, her first life lesson. He said "you can only kick sometimes. You can kick to be nice, so that we can feel you, but you cannot kick to be mean, that isn't good." He probably said that cause one time Matt went to kiss my belly and at that exact moment baby kicked and it got him in the chin. :) I love love love those moments and it makes me so excited for when baby is here and Matt will still likely be doing the same things, just not with my belly.
Number 2. Having people tell you how cute you are pregnant, asking about the baby and pregnancy, and wanting to touch my belly. I know it bothers some people and maybe it's because this is my first but I love it. I love everyone knowing I am pregnant and I love any chance to talk about her. I think this whole process of being pregnant is amazing. I love what my body can do and I am so excited for all my girl friends to be pregnant so they can see just how neat it is.
Number 3. Feeling this wild monster in my belly. She gets so crazy in there sometimes and I just wish my stomach was transparent so I could see what she is doing to make my stomach move that way. Sometimes I feel like she is having spaz attacks in there because my whole belly is moving and I can feel tons of little kicks and punches. Sometimes I like to think she is trying to tickle me with her fingers and that's why I can feel all these little twitches in only one spot. Sometimes when she moves it does get me to laugh because it really does kind of tickle and feel funny, especially by the ribs.
Number 4. I will kind of miss taking pictures of my growing belly and counting up or down the weeks. Soon I am going to have this baby and before I know it she will be one years old and I'll probably wish I could go back to being 8 months pregnant with her and starting all over.
Yup those are just a few things I will miss about this sweet little baby inside of me. But I can't wait for her to get here and to fall even more in love with her and enjoy all the pleasant and not so pleasant moments that are sure to come.
