I had previously written a different blog post for Saturday, but yesterday morning I decided against posting it…
This random stranger in the store had decided to tell me her traumatic birthing story prior to me writing, and some would say I was a bit “pissy”. This lady just really annoyed me. 1) I don’t even know you lady. 2) I promise I have no interest in hearing how terrible labor was for you.
I also had a dream that Reese did something to make me mad so I was in a grumpy mood when I woke up. 😉 I nice round of yoga and the anger had subsided.
So here we are now – I’m calm, caffeinated, and procrastinating putting on pants for church. Writing it is!
Somehow or another, we are at week 28. For those of you who (like me) may not be too sharp in the math department, we’re EIGHTY-THREE DAYS FROM THE DUE DATE. Mother of pearl. This has been a whirlwind!
We have A LOT to do before this little tyke arrives, but guess how motivated I am?
I don’t know if being pregnant has made me less worried about details, or if I’m just spending all my time thinking about food and naps so there’s less time to worry about the nursery…but it definitely is no where close to being anything that remotely resembles a baby room. Mayyybe we’ll get around to that next week or something. The baby will stay in our room at first anyways, sooooo we’ll just get there when we get there. 🙂
I did post a preggo-pic for the first time and let me tell you – I nearly had an anxiety attack. I don’t know why, but it freaked me out. I’ve never considered myself to be all that photogenic, and my make-up and hair gets done about once every 2 weeks, so pictures haven’t really been at the top of my priority list to say the least. Haha. But anywho, here ya go! 11 weeks, 18, weeks, 25 weeks and 28 weeks:
Update on how I’m holding up amidst the growing mid-section:
- I feel ridiculous running…it’s become more of a run/walk. And there should be more potty’s out there.
- Speaking of – DO NOT get in between me and the bathroom. I’ll knock you over.
- This. Lower. Back. Stahp already!
- My left thigh is forever asleep and there’s a nice shocking feeling in the back of my right knee from time to time. Yay!
- Maternity pants are like little angel babies.
- There was an incident in public and liquid started coming out of places that it had previously not come out of. That was fun.
- I grew a sweet tooth and it’s RAVENOUS.
So we’re hanging in there! We have narrowed down our list of 45 names to about 7 or so, so that’s good. We’ve also decided to do cloth diapering (YES WE’VE READ UP ON THIS, AND YES WE KNOW PEOPLE WHO DO THIS, AND NO WE DON’T WANT YOUR OPINIONS) so that’s exciting! 😉
Little baby will be here before we know it and it’s SO EXCITING to think about! We have another baby class this week, so let’s everybody keep our fingers crossed that they have more of the cookies they had last time. Reese is NOT going to be a happy camper if that’s not the case. (Maybe me too.)
