A little rambling of my feelings during this 18th week of pregnancy.
As i am feeling this precious one more frequently now, it’s starting to sink in that this will most likely be my final pregnancy. The last time being a part of creation within, feeling the first little flutters, experiencing the ups and downs of pregnancy symptoms and the last time being in labor and birthing the most precious gift from God. It’s an overwhelming thought for me. Even through the worst symptom of pregnancy I thoroughly enjoy every part because it is such an amazing responsibility. Determined to cherish every minute of this miracle.
Son, I feel your presence. This will always be a very special time of life, the months I carried you. Know every moment I am not alone. I feel your sweet kicks get stronger. I look forward to feeling your soft skin, but right now I am so happy you are safe within.
Feeling a little physically out of it, but still better than both Jameson’s and Kingsley’s pregnancies at this point. I crave fruit, especially strawberries and pineapple and also seafood. Still haven’t fulfilled the seafood craving just yet, would love to make a clambake sometime soon.
Now the we know baby is a HE my control issues are taking over, making me want to find a name for him like right now, ha. Even though we have many weeks to go. We have a few on the list but none feel like the one just yet. We want something fitting to his brothers strong names. I’m sure we will find a perfect name for him by the time we leave the hospital at least. I just want my day dreams to be complete with a name. I want to rub my belly and feel him kick to the sound of his name. But that all will come, I need to calm down and be patient.
Since all of our boys are so close together I don’t plan to have a complete different theme for each of them for many reasons. But mostly because many things will be shared. Although it has evolved a bit over the yrs. We plan to bring baby number three home from the hospital to our master bedroom just like we did with his brothers. His dad has plans of building his co-sleeper in just a few short months. He will have his own special corner on my side of the bed.
As you can see our boy number three has already been spoiled. Even though we already have many things baby will need when he arrives, he deserves some special things just for him as well.
Details in above picture:
- Fabric for a blanket & co-sleeper sheet from AA Cotton Creations.
- Huarache Moccasins from one of my favorite hand made shops Mommy Makes Moccs. They are too die for and so tiny!
- The cutest little wooden Alarm Clock for babies corner in our room from Kikkerland.
- Comotomo bottle found on Amazon. I’ve heard some great reviews about this bottle, with its natural shape & curve.
- A fun wooden teething in the shape of an apple made by Bannor Toys. How fitting because we live and are from Washington state!
