Assuming I'll go full term, I literally have 15 weeks left (as of this coming Saturday). I'm not sure how I missed someone pushing the fast-forward button on my life, but this is creeping up on me like I never imagined. I've been blessed to have an uncomplicated pregnancy thus far and I hope it continues from here on out. With only a few months left, we really need to get her room in order and decorated soon so that's one less thing we have to worry about. But who am I kidding? Without poking and pushing, Hardy and I are probably two of the worlds WORST procrastinators....it is what it is.
We finally got 2 registries completed, Babies R Us and Target. I feel weird registering for things so expensive. When we got married I didn't have a whole lot on a registry because we had already been living together 4 years and had most every thing a newlywed couple would need. So I'm out of my element with picking certain things. I just hope I'm picking logical things that we NEED, I think I have.
Now that I'm so used to Persephone's movements and kicks, I find myself freaking out if I don't feel them during a "normal movement time". I'll start pushing and squishing my stomach to try and get her to move around. I guess that's a normal thing to do...right? I have a feeling the paranoia only gets worse from here on out.
**Side note that has nothing to do with pregnancy or Persephone: Did anyone hear about the Mickey shaped crater on Mercury?
According to thefw.com:
NASA's Messenger probe photographed three craters on the surface of Mercury that look strikingly similar to Disney's beloved mascot Mickey Mouse. The instantly recognizable shape of Mickey's head is formed by three overlapping craters in Mercury's southern hemisphere, the largest of which measures 65 miles across. Messenger is the first spacecraft to ever orbit Mercury and has been photographing the planet for the past year. The probe has acquired 88,746 images so far and will take an additional 80,000 photographs before its extended mission ends.
