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 itâ€™s difficult to focus on almost anything else is I canâ€™t really do much beyond working at the computer, tidying up the house, reading, and watching TV. Sounds nice but Iâ€™m a wee bit bored (slash antsy). Iâ€™d love to do a long walk or hit the pool for a swim every single day, but sometimes exercise really just doesnâ€™t agree with me â€“ 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 â€“ 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, â€œBody, today would be a nice day to have a baby!â€ And every night, I sit on the couch and think, â€œBody, do NOT go in labor right now.â€ I really donâ€™t want to go into labor at night because Iâ€™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 â€“ when you got super pregnant, did the babyâ€™s movements kind ofâ€¦ 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 Iâ€™ve got this 6 pound kiddo inside me, flailing around like he is at a killer rave, and itâ€™s not exactly pleasant. My doc did say that BabyHTP is â€˜tightly packedâ€™ â€“ 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 donâ€™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 everyoneâ€™s Monday was wonderful!
