Mom-to-be Tiffany Thornton is inviting Celebrity Baby Scoop readers to follow along as she experiences her first pregnancy. The So Random! star and husband Christopher Carney expect a son (that they’ve already named KJ) within days/weeks.
In her third guest blog, Tiffany opens up about nearing the end of her pregnancy, which has proven to be a bit challenging with some nausea and aches and pains. But while the Disney star can’t wait to meet her son, she says, “I will miss feeling him move in my tummy, even if he is kicking me in my ribs.” Continue reading Tiffany’s blog as she gets close to welcoming baby No. 1.
The End Is Near
I can’t believe how quickly time flies when you are pregnant! When the nausea of my first trimester hit me I thought I would never get out of that trimester. But a few weeks later my nausea was gone and I wasn’t ‘accidentally’ falling asleep on the couch for 4 hours at a time.
In my case all the stories were correct when they stated that the second trimester is the best part of pregnancy. I had so much energy and wasn’t tired like I was in the beginning. My breasts stopped hurting and I finally looked pregnant enough to not feel awkward in my clothes. What a breeze my second trimester was!
Then the third trimester hit and I started feeling a lot like I did the first trimester, minus the nausea. I would definitely have to say the third trimester is the hardest of all. My legs always seem to feel like I just stood up from doing a thousand squats, my arms hurt anytime I try to blow dry my hair, my inner thighs feel like I just completed an 8 hour cheerleading practice and my lungs are so squished even breathing seems laborious.
I find myself constantly saying I’m ready for this to be over and just give birth already! So here I am just a few weeks away from seeing my child’s face that has been growing in me for the past nine months, and the harder I think about it I might actually miss this feeling of being pregnant!
Yes it is hard in the end, but I’ve been the sole caretaker of my little angel for the past nine months and now I have to share him! I know I will miss feeling him move in my tummy, even if he is kicking me in my ribs. I will miss the cute feeling of his hiccups at night, seeing my husband’s face as he feels him move and watching my husband talk to my tummy.
On one end I can’t wait to meet him, on the other hand I love having him so close to me all the time. I mean, I can barely leave my puppies at home and not feel bad when we go out to dinner, how in the world am I ever going to want to leave my son for a few hours?
I’m sure a few weeks after giving birth I will get that desire, but for now I will deal with the pains of the last few weeks of pregnancy and cherish this time I have just me and my son. It’s hard to imagine one day I’ll be watching him walk across the stage as he graduates high school wishing he was a baby again. What a crazy thing to think about!
