At this point in my pregnancy, it is hard for me to think about anything besides the impending arrival of our baby. I feel like a ticking bomb. Anyway, part of the reason it’s difficult to focus on almost anything else is I can’t really do much beyond working at the computer, tidying up the house, reading, and watching TV. Sounds nice but I’m a wee bit bored (slash antsy). I’d love to do a long walk or hit the pool for a swim every single day, but sometimes exercise really just doesn’t agree with me – especially in the heat. Walks are getting shorter and shorter and must wait until after 7 PM.
I really do not understand HOW some women run marathons at 38 weeks pregnant – I can barely waddle. If you ran until your due date, you get major props from me. You. Are. Superwoman.
Every morning, I wake up and think, “Body, today would be a nice day to have a baby!” And every night, I sit on the couch and think, “Body, do NOT go in labor right now.” I really don’t want to go into labor at night because I’m end up completely sleepless. And just because I feel like that, I bet a million dollars I go into labor at midnight. Hah!
I actually have a question for the other mommas out there – when you got super pregnant, did the baby’s movements kind of… hurt? Not painful-hurt, but uncomfortable-hurt. I mentioned this to my midwife and she kind of looked at me like I was crazypants. But I’ve got this 6 pound kiddo inside me, flailing around like he is at a killer rave, and it’s not exactly pleasant. My doc did say that BabyHTP is ‘tightly packed’ – could that have something to do with it?

I bowed out of the BBQ I was planning to attend. Thus, dinner was eaten at home. I wanted to create a Memorial Day-ish meal, but we don’t have an outside grill, so this was the best I could do:
Roasted tiny potatoes
Corn on the cob
And Soy Creamy for dessert.
Hope everyone’s Monday was wonderful!
