5 Months

I am 5 months pregnant and May cannot come soon enough. Our baby girl is about 8 inches long and weighs around 1.2 pounds, basically as big as a Papaya I am told. Blake and I are still trying to figure out a name for this baby girl (if only we could agree), but we are making lots of progress on her room. I have been very tired. It is so hard being pregnant and keeping up with a 2 year old. Usually when Carter naps I am napping too. At the moment baby girl is breeched, which Carter never was my entire pregnancy with him. She is completely only on my left side so my entire left rib cage and left side of my back is in constant pain day and night. She kicks all the time! Blake can feel her kicking and you can even see her kicking if you stare at my tummy. She is a mover and a shaker! My belly button is completely out, which did not happen until much later in my pregnancy with Carter. I am in full on maternity clothes. I am sleeping pretty well through the night, thank God. I am just totally ready to meet this little baby girl and dress her in all the clothes we have bought and received. I can patiently wait until May though. I am trying to enjoy each day with Carter and take in every little thing he says or does because I know once May comes and baby girl arrives it will be a dramatic change for him. We are looking forward to the months ahead and we have lots of fun things planned before baby girl's arrival. I hope everyone has had a good January.
