Real Estate

I'm not talking about the new house or any other house either! I'm talking about the real estate that is within me, and this Baby Boy thinks that he can just move in and take up as much space as he wants! When I first started showing I thought I was carrying really low. My thoughts for that were based on the pressure that I was feeling from him. I no longer believe that he is laying low.

This little boy is taking up the prime real estate that my lungs once occupied! I can no longer walk around the house without stopping to take in a deep breath because my lungs just aren't able to expand like they could before. I already get punched/kicked in the ribs too. I'm not sure if they're hands or feet though - the ultrasound back in October showed that he's completely folded in half and his feet are right by his hands. I can't complain about the punches/kicks in the ribs because he's constantly reminding me that he's there and doing well.

Most days Baby Boy just does flips and turns and dances around, but today I'm thinking he took a kick boxing class behind my back - literally! I've felt him over on my right side where I'd venture to say my back begins. He's kind of under my arm I were to stand and just let my arm rest at my side. So much for telling Eden that her brother is in my belly! He's actually in my back now a days.

Speaking of Baby Boy, Lane and I are trying to come to some sort of an agreement on getting fabric, bedding, decorations, and the such for his room. Oh my goodness, I thought I was picky when it came to decorating Eden's room when I was pregnant with her. Ugh, this is super hard. I don't want to go with a theme room because I just don't like them. I don't have a reason for not liking them, I just don't. That makes it hard to justify to Lane when he sees something "ultra boy" and wants to go with it for the room. He likes the sports themes, the nautical themes, and anything else that he would classify as boy, but he doesn't like the idea of just using the colors as a theme for the room and decorating around that. I'm not sure why, but then again he's not sure why I'm opposed to it either! Oy, it's going to be a hard decision for us when it comes to figuring this out!

  1. I'm with ya on the themed rooms--I like the more classic, not so babyish, rooms for whatever reason. I know they're babies, but just my preference. :) And cherish all the kicking and punching--I totally miss it!
