Finally reach the last trimester, my belly is huge now, well not too big. I reach the 32 weeks along. I saw the baby on the ultrasound, its is not a small cells bunch together, but a real life baby. Its still small, but the doctor told me the lungs are not fully develop now, if I go into labour then the baby will not survive after the birth without help. Its so cute, but not showing what the sex is still, stubborn little thing, but still cute to see.
The kicking and moving, I can feel a lot more, I try to get it to sleep during the night, but not going to happen right now. I was in shock when it kick me very hard on day during class, more took my breath away, and my classmates was worry I went into labour, but happy when it was just a hard kick happen to me… I should not miss breakfast that day, thank goodness one classmate had an apple for me to eat in class, and the baby was very happy to have some food.
My family was in shock to find out I was pregnant with this baby, but they have been very helpful now. Mary and mom been telling me how to have good pregnancy, and a health baby at birth… They been telling me about childbirth, I was thinking of doing the birth without mediation, and see what will happen… I will be there for my mom and sister births when it happens in the weeks to come, and I want to be there to comfort them each during their birth… I just hope we all giving birth at different times…
Well I have to go back to studying for a test coming up very soon, and the baby is now sleep… Oops its not sleeping now, moving like crazy for food now… Well got to go to eat and study now.
See you later Dairy!
P.S. My belly button is sticking out now, I can play with it, and I got heartburn here and there… Thank goodness for Tums I carry around with me, but I am still having swelling around my ankles but still the same sizes still. My breasts has gotten huge now, fully of milk for the baby… The guys in the dorm, drooling all over my new size of breasts, I glared at them, slapping their hands away from my breasts, and freak out on them in my crazy mean pregnant mood… The boys learn the hard way, but they are nice guys to make sure I am okay during this pregnancy. Everyone love touching my belly, feeling the baby moving and kicking, but they ask me before touching my belly. Oh well that being pregnant now.
32 weeks, third trimester of this pregnancy, and Rick is happy that his new little brother or sister will be coming in the weeks to come. Rick was playing with my belly button sticking out of me, feeling the baby moving and kicking, and he kissing and talking to my belly. He learn to read a small story to the baby at night, even if Rick stumble over the words, but Rick is teaching the baby that mom and dad love it a lot. My husband is enjoy my huge breasts now, I just giggle and laugh at him, because it is driving him crazy big time.
Everything is going well with the baby growing inside of me, the doctor is very happy to see the grown with the baby. Rick came to my last ultrasound, seeing the baby on the screen, he saying to me that ‘his baby brother or sister’ with a huge smile on his face, jumping for joy seeing how big the baby is now, and cannot wait until the baby is born… That not going to be for a few weeks to come.
Rick found out my belly button stick out now, he playing with it as his talk to the baby in my belly, and making me laugh on how cute he talking between the baby and him. The baby kicks and move when Rick talking to it, and I think they will have a big time bond. We will see over the years to come if their bond stay strong.
Husband love touching and rubbing, talking, and kissing my belly. I love having him around for helping around the house, and he enjoy doing housework and looking after Rick here and there. My wonderful husband just been great all the time, the great lover too, maybe that how we end up with Rick and this little one too, who going to be born in a few weeks to come.
Well I better get going now, and seeing you in the weeks to come Diary.
The last trimester of this pregnancy now, 32 weeks now, and my friend, who going to be the mother, is very happy to see how I am doing now with this baby. The baby is growing nicely, but cannot survive without some help to breath on its own… I hope, I will make it to the end of my pregnancy with a healthy baby coming into this world in the weeks to come.
My husband being great helping me around the house, and making sure I am well rested until the birth of this baby. He enjoy touching, rubbing, and kissing my belly. He laugh a bit seeing my belly button sticking out fully now, he wiggling it as he giggle, and loving me still in every way. He even do the laundry, shopping, cleaning, and cooking. I think he is looking for brownie points for something after this baby born, and you what I mean what the award for all his hard work.
I cannot wait until this baby is born, my feet are so sore and swell, and I hope this baby comes into the world healthy and safe… Even if my friend wants a home birth, I am hoping to talk to Mary and Jennifer to come at the house, and be here for each other. We all due the same date, I think having a few more midwifes to come, and be there encase those two go into labour too. It will be cool if all of us have the babies at the same time or the same day too. I just hope Jennifer will be okay, it is her first time, and I remember my first time giving birth to my first born. Mary to remember her first time giving birth to Rick, and Jennifer just worry about the birth to come. She told us that she been looking up a few things about childbirth, watch a few videos, and she scared hearing the screaming in pain from the women on the videos. We told her that childbirth is not that painful if you make it, she a strong young woman, and she will be okay now.
Well got to go Diary, baby on my bladder again, and need go now.
A few weeks later, around the 37 weeks now, Jennifer and Mary came over to their parents place, and Jennifer was nervous about giving birth to her baby any day now. Mary and Jennifer arrive that the house, being greeted by their mother, and trying to hug each other with their bellies getting in the way now. There was laughing at the whole hugging thing, and Bev let them into the house. “Any day now, our babies will be born,” Bev told Mary and Jennifer rubbing her belly with her hand, and smiling at her daughter.
“I know, I cannot wait for number two to come into the world,” Mary say to her mother rubbing her belly with her hand too.
Jennifer shrug her shoulders, having a worry look on her face, and speaking with nervous in her voice, “I am just scared being a mother for the first time.”
Mary and Bev looking at Jennifer, and Bev spoke first, “It is scary for the first time mother. I was scared to for the first time, so was your father. He did not know how to change a diaper for the first time or feed a baby, but we survive the first time being parents, and had more children years later. It is okay Jennifer we are all here for you, and that why we are all here to help each other. If we go into labour, we can help each other, and birth will be easy together. You don’t have to be scared when that time comes for your baby to come into the world.”
“I agree with mom, it is tough at first, but it does get easy over time. My husband was scared at first to hold Rick the first time, and now he plays with Rick like no tomorrow. My husband did not like the dirty diapers changes, really it will stink big time, and he was always gross out by it. The first diaper change is the hardest one to get through, it is like black as night, and it is gross. But you will be okay during birth, and we are all here for you, sis,” Mary told Jennifer hugging her sister on the side.
Jennifer nodded her head, and saying to her family, “Your right, I will be all right to get through childbirth and motherhood just fine.” Jennifer smiling at her family, and just happy she home safe for this baby birth. She was done College for the year, coming home was better for her, and being home for her baby birth was even better. She headed upstairs to her bedroom, unpacking her suitcase, looking down at the baby stuff in her suitcase, thinking if she wants to keep the baby or not, and she stood there crying. She felt her baby moving around inside her belly, and she place her hand on the side of the belly to cry more. She lay down on the bed to hold the pillows in her arms, thinking of the night she got rape, and being pregnant with this baby. “I am scared now little one,” she whisper to her baby.
Mary and Bev was having some tea together in the kitchen, talking about a few things, and thinking about the births to come. “Jennifer is worry about this whole being a mother for the first time, and that baby is a baby from rape. I think she rethinking about keeping that baby or not,” Mary told her mother slipping on her tea.
“I know that baby from rape, but it is up to Jennifer if she wants the baby or not. We are being with her with her chose for the baby, and she will make the right chose in time,” Bev say to Mary slipping on her tea too.
“It is scary the first time being a parent,” Mary say to her mother, thinking to herself being pregnant with her second child now.
“It is all scary for all my pregnancies,” Bev told Mary looking down at her cup of tea.
“No way mom, you were scared with all your pregnancies,” Mary say in shock to her mother, looking at her mother with wide eyes.
“Yes, I was having your older brother at 23 years old, he was a huge boy coming into the world, and he came at the hospital. He was over due by two weeks, and he was weighting nine pound eight ounces. You, Mary, I gave birth to you when I was 25 year old, you were born in a the front seat of car heading to the closes hospital on our trip, you can a week early at 39 weeks, and weight eight pounds even. You were born with a cord loops around your neck, and you have a set of lungs when you cry your first breath of life. After that other three born in a hospital on time, weighting between eight to ten pounds. Boy at 27, Girl at 29, and Boy at 32, and they were nice and healthy. Then there Jennifer, who came along born at 28 weeks, weighting a tiny weight, and almost never made it. I gave birth to her at 35 years old, she came the worse night of our family life, the night the twister hitting the town, and she can downstairs in the basement right into my hands. A tiny baby I ever saw in my hands, she was not breathing on her own, and I thought she will never make it. Look what happen 20 years later, she still here and alive, and I am happy her pregnancy is going good. I am happy that all my children are still around, happy, and healthy. We are all still family no matter what, helping each other during the hard times, and Jennifer maybe the baby of the family. Right now she the one suffering big time now, being pregnant with that baby, and she need to be comfort now,” Bev told Mary thinking about all her children being born into the world, and she remember how she deal with the pain of labour and birth.
“Ya I remember Jennifer birth, I was scared seeing you in pain, holding your belly in your hands, and getting down over the towels to push Jennifer out of you. I remember how tiny she was, and helpless she was at that time. But we were luckily that we were found in time to get you and her to the hospital for help. I remember seeing her in the INCU hook up to everything, that you cannot see her very much under all those wires and tubes. We all hope she will pull through, and she did,” Mary told her mother, as they talk a bit more, before going to bed, and sleeping through the night.
