So, 34 Weeks ands 4 Days...But really...Who's counting?? Passed my third glucose test, so I had pie for breakfast to celebrate...Just kidding-I had Special K with Red Berries, but pie sounds good.
We are currently having a mini-heatwave here in Western Mass, with temps in the low 90's, when they are usually at like, 79 degrees this time of year.....Bless my Father-in-law's heart, he gave Jon money for us to buy another air conditioner, since one of our 2 old ones crapped out ("I don't want my daughter-in-law to be uncomfortable"), which we bought last night and put into my tiny office........Ah, cool air.....
Aside from my constant backache, lack of sleep, sore and swollen feet and ankles and 2 ton stomach, things are good. I am convinced this baby is trying to make an exit THRU my belly button the way he is pushing lately, but unless I unwittingly became part of the cast of Aliens or Spaceballs, he has only one option regarding exit strategy here. That being said, I am STRONGLY considering offering my doctors bribes of money to induce me because I am SO ready to be done. For all the pregnant mamas out there who feel fabulous-Good for you! But if you tell me how great you feel, I will give you a great big fistful of "Why-I-Oughta"......My mood is such these days that any perky types I run into will be going down, and with very little fanfare.
Just so I can put you mind at ease (because I know you are all thinking that given my slacker tendencies, this kid would be sleeping in the drawer of a dresser in an otherwise empty room), the baby's room is slowly coming along-Most of the clothes are washed and I am slowly but surely putting them away. This weekend, I even unpacked some of the baby gear-The Pack N' Play, the Baby Papasan, and the Baby Swing all got put together. No matter that my living room now resembles a day care center-Least the boxes are put away.....It's a step in the right direction.
Also, let me just put this out there for anyone reading-If you have a pool, I will SO be your new best friend-I will happily let you poke fun at me in my awful maternity bathing suit, thunder thighs and all, if you'll let Old Shamu here float around for an hour or two in your pool. Sounds enticing, doesn't it?? You know you wanna a piece of this......
Also-Anyone want to cook for me?? (kind of sort of just kidding) Cooking is SO not happening right now.......Lucky for me, Jon's efforts in the garden are paying off, so we have plenty of fresh organic lettuce, and will soon have red peppers, cucumbers, cauliflower and tomatoes. So we won't starve...we'll just eat like rabbits for a while.
Well, that is pretty much it for now...tonight is another fun filled Labor and Delivery class at the hospital, where we get to see icky videos with crowning baby crotch shots and shown repeatedly EXACTLY what 10 cm dialated looks like (I totally THOUGHT I wanted to go drug free for birth before seeing that, but now realize I was completely insane). Fun, fun, fun.
