2. Three girls?! We laughed when we found out.
3. But, can they really tell that early?
4. My belly has been touched and rubbed at least a dozen times already. And I'm not even that big yet. (I'm sure this is just the first of a long list of pregnancy related culture shock I will go through!)
5. Well, I suppose my bump looks like I'm almost halfway through pregnancy already.
6. When I look at my two hands / two arms / one lap and when I look over at my squirrely (and sometimes downright disobedient) two kids, I wonder how I'm going to do it with a baby in tow.
7. But, then I remember: moms have been doing this forever. And sometimes with more kids and/or even littler kids than I have. It'll be far from perfect, but everyone will survive.
8. Many days, sometimes several times a day, Grace asks me, "Mommy, are you still preg-a-nant?" I answer, "Yes, but the baby won't be here until after Cora turns three."
9. Sometimes, Cora looks down at her large toddler tummy and says, "Mommy, I'm preg-a-nant, too." She then tells me the baby will be born in a couple of hours or tomorrow or next year and that she will name her Grace.
10. I recently learned that pregnant Thai women avoid caffeine like pregnant American women avoid alcohol. I’m going to have to sneak my lattes.
11. High heat/humidity and first trimester nausea don't mix well. But, the nausea is done and gone.
12. I'm really tired all the time.
13. I think I've started feeling the baby's kicks. Strangest, most comforting feeling ever.
14. I've always wanted three kids... we're excited!
