The little one is growing rapidly and I’m still extremely tired. Funny fact: my belly is growing very fast (it’s rather obvious that I’m pregnant) but I’m not gaining any weight. I even think I lost inches around my upper legs and upper arms. Is this baby eating away my fat?! I hope so! 😉 I’m certainly not bingeing, I eat healthy food and I just don’t have that much of an appetite.
My husband came home the other day with three bags full of baby and toddler clothes. A friend gave this to him. I sorted everything out. They’re mostly girl’s clothes and they look awesome. We don’t know the gender of our baby yet. We’ll visit the midwife this Friday, maybe she can detect the baby’s gender on the ultrasound. We’ll know for sure on the 8th of November. Then we’ll have our 20-week ultrasound (at which point I’ll be almost 21 weeks). I’m so excited!
Furthermore, I bought two baby carry things. One mini monkey which looks like this one. We intend to use it when the baby is still very small. It was €5 second-hand.
And a Kipling version (reminded me of that guy in The Hangover, haha!) for €7 second-hand. It sort of looks like this:
Both were hardly ever used and look great.
I’ve become enthusiastic about carrying the baby ever since reading Valhalla’s blog. I hadn’t thought about that before and just assumed putting the kid in a stroller in order to tag it along. This does seem more natural, intimate and an opportunity to bond much better.
I’m also reading a lot about breast-feeding. I hope to breast feed for at least six months.
