so this week again has been a good one 🙂 something strange is happening around my belly button though…it scared me a bit at first. i thought it might be a very faint beginning of stretch marks (AHHH) but upon further investigation it seems to be my skin turing a darker color. it kind of looks like a bruise, and i have done some research and i think it might be something similar to the linea nigra. it becomes more prominent at certain times of the day, mostly at night. hopefully it won’t start getting super dark. i have been letting baby listen to music for a couple days now. i am not sure if this is really doing anything to baby’s brain development, but i am willing to try! he definitely likes it though because he kicks around when i put the headphones on my belly. well that, or he is like turn that sh*t off mom, i am trying to sleep! haha. little stinker.
this weekend i finally decided on an outfit to bring baby home from the hospital in. remember this penguin outfit? well it was on sale at baby gap so i just bought it. i thought it looked cozy and something baby would look extra handsome in. i seriously can’t help myself when i go shopping…all i want to do is buy baby clothes.
this friday brian and i have our first pregnancy class! i am pretty excited to see what this class is like. it’s held at the yoga studio where i do prenatal yoga. i think it focuses on things brian can do during labor to help support me and help me through the pain. i will let you all know how it goes! there is also a class at the yoga studio where two doulas will share birthing techniques and get us a little more informed about the birthing process. i think i will sign up for this class and see what i think about the whole natural birth choice. more on that topic after my class 🙂
