Pregnant Mommies: These charcoal yoga pants are SO COMFORTABLE. There isn’t an elasticity in the fold-over band so it’s perfect for lounging on the couch in. Thank you Pink Blush for gifting me these- I LOVE them.
Hi Friends! 30 weeks today, can you believe it?! It seems like just yesterday I was sitting on a moving box in the kitchen waiting to see if the second line appeared or not. (clearly, it did).
So for this weeks bumpdate, I thought we would change it up by doing it from Mauricio’s perspective! 🙂 Obviously these are a bit different than the questions I answer since he doesn’t have any cravings and he isn’t feeling any baby pains. I’ll write the question, Mauricio’s answer, followed by my commentary.
1. What has been Abby’s biggest craving?
Mauricio: flaming hot cheetos
Abby: Ding Ding Ding, he is correct. So random, but so addicting.
2.How many diapers does a baby go through in a year?
Correct answer: LOL. I died when he answered this one. The correct answer is 2,200
3.What has been Abby’s biggest complaint?
Mauricio: Her clothes not fitting her
Abby: Ehhh he is half correct. I would say that was my biggest complaint during the first trimester for sure, but now I’ve gotten used to it and am showing enough that I clearly look pregnant not fat. lol. Also, I have been lucky enough to partner with some really wonderful maternity lines that have kept me both fashionable and comfortable through these past few months. Stay tuned for more maternity wardrobe posts.
4.What’s been her worst physical symptom
Mauricio: She is snoring now!
Abby: LOL. The answer I was expecting was more like “her lower back hurts, she’s itchy, some times the baby kicks her ribs” … those type of answers. He clearly thought I meant what was my worst physical symptom FOR HIM. Haha.
It is true though, I used to be the quietest sleeper, but pregnancy just throws everything out the window. I didn’t really believe him at first when he told me, but one time I woke myself up from my own snore! HA! I was like “omg who was that?!” So strange- sorry honey!
Luckily its not every single night, I think it just depends how exhausted I am and where the baby is sitting in my tummy. Also, the weather has been so up and down here that it’s also stuffed me up a bit. Fingers crossed it doesn’t get any worse… or that he can sleep through it.
5.What has been your favorite moment so far?
Mauricio: Doctors Appointments- When we get an ultra sound or we get to hear the babys heartbeat.
Abby: Wow- I thought for sure he would say ‘finding out it was a boy!’
6.When did it become real for you?
Mauricio: When we found out it was a boy!
Abby: There it is! hah.
7.How long do you think Abby will be in labor?
Mauricio: Umm I don’t know, like 2 hours?
Abby: Lol thats some wishful thinking right there. Although I do hope that that is the case, its not likely.
8.What book are you going to read the baby?
Mauricio: Biology 101- he’s going to be a doctor.
Abby: Oh dear lord.
9.What sport do you plan to enroll him in first?
Abby: Mauricio has always been very practical. Although he went to college on a soccer (and academic) scholarship, he knows that the opportunities of going pro and making a career out of it are few and far between. Especially since our gene pool isn’t likely to give us a very large child. Tennis is a sport Mauricio thinks is both respectable and profitable…. so hopefully baby boy will find the same appeal in it. We’ll see!
10.Do you think you’ll cry when the baby is born?
Mauricio: I don’t know
Abby: Yes, I think he will.
11.Do you think Abby will cry when the baby is born?
Abby: Yes, I can’t imagine I wouldn’t. So many emotions and hormones going on right now!
12.Who do you think will change the first diaper?
Mauricio: I don’t know, I guess it’ll depend what time it is and who is around?
Abby: haha I’ve been instructed by several women to make him change the first diaper so that the nurses can show him how. Plus, considering I have to do all the nursing, I think its only fair that he changes the diapers when he can.
Alright, after that he got tired and didn’t wanna play this game anymore. So thats it for now. Do y’all have any other questions? Let me know down in the comments below and I’ll answer them next week in Bumpdate 31!
