25 weeks marks a very exciting time… it finally puts us into a double digit countdown. Being able to say our little girl will be here in less than 100 days gives me the chills. She’s also gotten a lot more active in the past week and I”m starting to feel actual limbs. I can’t recognize exactly what they are but I know they are body parts. I also can see her moving around and shifting which is equal parts awesome and freaky. I feel like this week something shifted inside of me (aside from her normal movements of course! lol) and I feel an incredible connection to her that I didn’t feel before. I don’t know really how to explain it but it’s just amazing.
In other news, this week also marks the most emotional week I’ve encountered since becoming pregnant. I cannot hold back tears… at all. I’m usually pretty good about being in control of my emotions but I literally lost it this week. Uncontrollable. Sobbing. ScreamingCryingCan’tUnderstandASingleWordI’mSaying. I literally want to tell myself to snap out of it but I don’t know, maybe it’s necessary.
We went to IKEA (aka Erin’s hell) this weekend and got a couple of things for the nursery. We’re going to be updating some things in there this weekend so I think I’ll do a progress post once I finish painting. I’m loving how everything is coming together. I just need to find some special pieces to make the room uniquely hers.
Now for my weekly update:
