Okay, people (Tera), here it is! The elusive belly shot. This was taken at almost 27 weeks (I am right now at 28 weeks). I have to say, that it is really hard to feel cute when you are pregnant and it is 85 degrees out, with high humidity. I finally asked Keith to take a belly shot if only because we should have at least one for this pregnancy.
What do I think so far? I've been carrying very low, and as they say in Chinese "jian jian", which kind of translates to "pointy", all of which culminates in the fact that I think it's a boy in there. I am so certain, that I will be really shocked if it isn't.
The nausea finally passed around week 25, after which I had a couple of weeks of feeling grrreat! But now, I just feel big and tired, and I expect that will continue for the next few months until the end. I've been feeling lots of guilt over the fact that it's harder to play with Lili and that I just can't give her the energy she wants. But, all that prepares her for the months following the birth, I guess.
She asks about the baby a lot. What it can and can't do when it's first born, what it will eat, what she will be able to do with it. I really appreciate how in tune she is with the whole process. I'm hoping it won't be a huge shock to her, we'll see.
Anyway, here it is! If I can eke out any belly cute-ness in the next few weeks, I'll post another. Who knows, maybe a haircut will help?
