4 months

Baby is due in exactly 5 months, which makes me 4 month pregnant today! I feel well, movements are still only a perception (sometimes I wonder if they are real at all) and the doppler is still a great reassurance little Phoenix's heart is ticking along. He's generally between 134 and 140 (counted by myself) so hopefully all is well. I check every couple of days for just one minute or so, I love hearing all the movements too! Belly is growing, will have to take another pic soon, but you know what's growing even more at an alarming pace? My boobs!! Had to go and get new bras on saturday, the D cup I was happily wearing till the end of Oliver's pregnancy has become a DD and the lady helping me said she would not be surprised if I'll have to get a E cup...you see, I love my boobs now, won't mind if they get to an E, but you know the way they then deflate horribly after pregnancy and breast feeding...there's no coming back from there! But still, it's all so so worth it.
We are nearing a decision on the beds for the second bedroom where Oliver will be transitioned ahead of Pheonix arrival. Still a few details to iron out but it's probably going to be an L-shape bunk bed with nice steps on the side!

And this is finally the last week of the teaching term, really looking forward to the end of the semester...three more days...


  1. Good to hear everything is going well. I know about the horrible deflating part... had to go bra shopping not too long ago too, because the ones I had were all too big (or too old)... :(

  2. Wow - things are moving so fast! I am looking forward to hearing and seeing more of the second bedroom and the nursery 2.0!
    Glad you are almost done with the semester!
    Yikes with the boobies! I went from a B to a D and I still have not gone back - but I know once I fully wean I will be having two little saggy girls left over - til next time!
    Take care:)xoxo great to hear from you!

  3. Fran, this update is quite sweet. I am hoping that you get to enjoy some great time off with the family. And each milestone for the little P is a joy.

    I fear life after breastfeeding with my boobs deflating from that triple d range. Yikes!

  4. How nice that you're at a comfortable stage in pregnancy during the holidays. :-)
    And the plans for the boys' room sound lovely.

  5. O dear, this alphabet game!
    B,C,D,E,F (and that is not the size to stop buying bras...) I guess I'll just keep them all for the way back.

  6. Congratulations on the 4 month milestone! So glad all is well. And as for "deflation" of the boobs....oh yes, how I know that all too well!

  7. I am so envious you can find the heartbeat with the doppler. I still can't! But at least I can hear the baby move, which is really all I need to keep me sane on the days I feel very little movement.

    I am hoping that since I don't even change cup sizes on the boob front it means they will deflate less after the baby is born. My older sister ended up in a G with her pregnancies! I'll stick to my fuller than normal C. ;)

    Can't wait to see the new beds!
