No one warned me how much this part of the pregnancy sucks. Waiting on Baby is not enjoyable! I just want her here, or at least to know that I’m in the process of bringing her here. Right now I know that in a vague way, as in she’ll be here sometime this month, but I want to know that she’s … imminent. I want to be in labour (and when I am? I will laugh at myself for writing that). I wish no one had ever mentioned that she might be early (especially not my midwife, although in her defense it’s not the end of the weekend yet!). I wish my grandpa hadn’t dreamed of storks, and Chris hadn’t noticed that the full moon will be here on Monday. I wish I were still walking around with a smirk and expecting to be at least a week late.
My nipples were tingling all day yesterday. I kept staring down at my shirt to see if I was like lactating or something. I’m wasn’t. I can’t believe my boobs are going to sustain life (when I told Chris this, he said, “They can sustain my life anytime… bow chica wow wow!”)
Insofar as any progress — well, nothing really to report. I had my most intense cramp so far (NOT a contraction) last night while watching Jeopardy, which I was kicking ass at btw, but that’s really it.
Chris asked me out on a “date” tonight. Kinda. There aren’t any movies out that we want to see. He doesn’t eat big dinners on weeks when he works, since he goes to bed so early, and dinners tend to be pretty pricey to eat out anyhow. So I suggested we head to Caffé Demetre and just have dessert for dinner. I don’t think I’ll be getting the apple pie again, though.
His mom flew in last night and I expect she’ll be over soon, so that may throw a little kink in our plans, but I will leave her here alone if I have to!
Also, I need more interesting webpages to visit. I spend all day rotating vapidly between World of Warcraft related pages, pregnancy/parenting blogs, and foodie blogs — but now that I’ve pretty much given up WoW and have no intention of returning, there’s a huge gap in my internet browsing habits. I guess I shouldn’t need to worry about that for too much longer, really… soon enough I may not even have time to keep up commenting on all my favourite mommy blogs!
