Lime And The Coconut

Week 20

Baby’s Length: 6.5 in

Baby’s Weight: 10 oz.

Baby’s Size: Coconut

Halfway to the finish line!! Only 20 more weeks to go… or less. It took this long for the whole “I’m going to be a mom” idea to actually sink in and make sense. And yet I have a feeling I still won’t fully grasp it until I hold my baby in my arms for the first time.

Hopefully, Bambino will cooperate on Thursday and we will finally be able to tell whether it’s a boy or a girl. I’m so excited and anxious and I just can’t wait to find out. I actually be able to shop for baby clothes! Speaking of which, why do they have to make baby clothes so ugly? Especially for little boys? So far, I haven’t found any little boys clothes I would put on my child. Well… except baby Gap clothes, but who can afford those?

Soul Gardening made an excellent post on breastfeeding last week, while Motherhood Uncensored approached the subject of libido-less husbands in her usual humorous way. Both were interesting posts you may want to check out if you have time.

I’ve been wondering lately what form this blog will take after my baby comes. Will I have time to blog anymore? And if I do, will I be one of those mom’s that drives everyone crazy because I can’t talk about anything else but my baby? Should I prepare myself ahead of time and make this blog more child-friendly or do I want the flexibility to talk about the hard subjects like Asperger Syndrome if the mood so strikes me? I don’t know. It’s something I will have to keep thinking about for a while yet, I’m afraid… Or maybe I’ll just have to wait and see.

  1. Will you have time to blog after the baby comes? Umm…not so much…LOL At least not right away. The time you do have you’ll want to spend napping….trust me on this. And, when you do blog, write about whatever you want. It’s YOUR site for goodness sakes! You will however, have some great material with the impending mommy-ventures 🙂 Take care sweetie!

  2. In a nutshell: What Cindi said! Napping is a high priority with an infant. I still remember sleep-deprivation with horror.
    As for the blog, she’s right there too.It’s your blog, and you can have it be whatever you wish. My own is a prime example of what happens when you just ramble, stream-of consciousness style.
    Take it easy, love


  3. I promise, I won’t get my feelings hurt if you aren’t able to blog after the baby is born.


    Please, by all means, don’t worry about the blog.

    Take everyone’s advice.

    Nap when the baby naps.


    Someone who wasn’t able to nap.
