You guys, I keep getting larger (I am already 2 weeks larger than the above photo, at the time of writing). Just when I think it’s not possible, it just keeps happening. And I know it will continue to happen. It happened last time, it will happen this time. I know I’m not extra large, I’m measuring right on track, but, ugh. You can’t help but feel this way in the moment. I officially reached the weight limit I had wanted to gain, and with several more weeks left with the baby gaining weight, well, I will too. Ah vell. I’m not about to not have my sweets and cereal (as I eat a bowl and a half of Kix while writing this), what with not being able to indulge in all the holiday drinking.
I can’t believe it’s Christmas next week! It’s so exciting. And after Christmas comes baby watch 2014/2015. I really do feel like this one might come early for some reason, though if he’s anything like Henry, it’s only wishful thinking. I’m not wishing to hard yet though, I do want to make it to Christmas at least – for his sake, and mine. Time to finish the nursery and do loads of tiny laundry…
mr. stubborn pants is now 10 days late. however, the doctor’s are finally getting things started late tonight…hopefully tomorrow we will have henry in our arms after a smooth and safe delivery.
my last day as a non-mom so far has been spent sleeping in and taking a long shower – two things i’m sure won’t happen again for a looong time. also on the agenda: a mani and a pedi and finishing one last project for henry (a t-shirt blanket – perhaps that is what he has been waiting for??).
things will probably be a bit light around here for a bit, though i’m sure i won’t be able to resist posting a pic (or a thousand).
what a great weekend i had! two showers to celebrate henry coming, with tons of amazing gifts from such generous friends and family. pics to come…
on to the latest maternity book entry:
speaking of feet – i’ve been lucky so far, for 35 weeks, but no more. the heat over the weekend brought out the sausage toes and cankles – not cool. and i think i need to take off my wedding rings, just to be safe. nooooo. i will feel so naked! i’m now going to the doctor weekly, and today we have an ultrasound – i can’t wait to see him again , it’s been a couple months.
have a great week!
h.o.l.y. c.o.w. i am now 33 weeks. time has flown, and yet, i can’t believe there’s still 7 weeks left. 7 weeks of henry – and me – growing. yikes.
one week down, one week closer. and only one week left of second trimester!
have a great weekend (and st. patrick’s day!)
bring on week 26.
