I wonder…

5 No tags Permalink 0

There are lots of things that I wonder, most of which I won’t bore you with today. But I will bore you with the latest baby things I have been wondering. I did warn you in my Dear Puff Pieces post that my brain is consumed with all things baby!

Ok, so here are my wonderings:

  • I wonder everyday if I’m having a boy or a girl. From the day I found out I was pregnant I thought it was a boy. But every now and then for a moment I think it might be a girl!
  • I wonder how the hell I’m going to get this baby out! For so long you just focus on the pregnancy and I think the words, ‘you’re now in your third trimester’ made me stop and think, oh shit we’re on the home stretch now and I actually have to give birth.
  • I wonder what it’s going to be like to not be pregnant! I feel like I’ve been pregnant for so long, it’s almost as if my belly and kicking baby has always been there.
  • I wonder when I’ll be ready to leave the house after the baby is born.
  • I wonder how the hell you do your grocery shopping with a newborn. Two words come to mind: Coles Online!
  • I wonder if my belly button will ever be the same again. Actually lets just add my whole body to that!
  • I wonder what Jack our dog will be like with the baby.
  • I wonder what it’s going to be like to be a mum. The words hardest but best thing ever come to mind!

What did you wonder when you were pregnant?

    I think I went through all the same feelings as you did with my first, and probably focused far too much on the actual birth itself towards the end. I also made the critical mistake of talking to too many mothers who told me their horror stories. Helpful :)

    With my 2nd I was hideously sick from conception to birth so only ever thought about not throwing up. I literally counted the minutes until I would give birth.

    However, I must say I was most obsessive about boys names – so incredibly hard. If my 2nd was a boy he would probably not have one at all!

    Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy :)

    Clever gal – get that Coles Online set up NOW!

    It’s always a little scary getting out and about with the first. I was happy to walk with the pram places pretty much straight away, but it took me aaaages to drive somewhere, because I was convinced I wouldn’t be able to work out the baby capsule! But it wasn’t so bad after all. There’s no rush. When you feel ready. ;)

    I remember wondering exactly the same things that you are wondering…apart from the dog one, we don’t have a dog.

    The best advice I can give is don’t worry about the birth. The more you worry the more stressed you’ll be. Just go with the flow, whatever happens will happen, you won’t change anything by worrying.

    And I felt so awkward leaving the house with a baby. Pushing a pram felt weird, I used to worry about how I would get through non-automatic doors!

    And breastfeeding in public?! I never did it, I stayed home…a lot! But it all gets easier when you get used to it. As Jodie says, just do everything in your own time. And enjoy your new baby because they don’t stay ‘new’ for very long. xxx

    I agree with Thea about the birth, what happens will happen, just have an open mind to all possibilities.

    That not being pregnant anymore thing? My baby is 9, and sometimes I swear I can still feel a baby turning over inside.

    I was happy to leave the house from the get go, it actually helped me to get out and not feel so house bound, but everyone is different, just in your own time.

    Just enjoy this time as much as you can… you will never get this time again where it’s just you, Hubby and the dog.

    So, feet up and enjoy xxx

    what it would feel like to out my old favorite jeans back on, and believe me, when that time comes, it is the best feeling in the world.
