The Fifth month. Weeks 23-24
Anyways I came home, had a half bath/half shower, cleaned my room, set up some baby stuff and wrote Thank You cards for my past baby shower. I was in the middle of prenatal yoga when Phil called to tell me about his amazing skate and filming day with www.couragecanada.ca and confirmed he was booking a flight and looking forward to coming home this weekend for a breather. He's so good to his family and me and I'm so thankful. It's going to be a good visit, and give us that extra boost before we got the next month (all of September) with no visit as of yet. I mean, we've gone a couple weeks with no contact before but I think this time around it's harder because of the current situation (pregnancy, things changing in the house). I know I can do it without my partner because he honestly checks in all day. I have to learn to go day-by-day and stop worrying. Phil carried on today as if I didn't overreact and say things last night. He knows it's not me but I need to realize I can save myself and our baby some extra breath if I can calm myself early enough and just keep to the positive, day-by-day. He's filming his first on-the-road doc and going through our first pregnancy. He's coming home to visit like a true champ and we're going to spoil him and send him back out to finish what he does best. I'm so proud.
Let's do a baby update!
Gender: They're still saying Girl! ouuu my little friend and daddy's girl :)
Cravings: Italian! Pizza! Pasta! Tomato Sauce!
Baby: Small little movements :) I felt the biggest one to-date yesterday
Travel: I hope to make it to my cottage next weekend. I can still fly too so if a spontaneous opportunity comes up to go see the boys on the road then I will. But for now I have to remember to be pregnant and see them in Ontario. My time will come.
Other symptoms: Bleeding gums, visual veins
Exercise: Yoga :)
