Baby- Not Mine

Going to be with my sister today and she's having her baby. Kinda wondering if this will totally FREAK ME OUT or give me confidence. It's almost like confronting you deepest fears, being with someone who is going through what you will go through in 1.5 months. Not that birth is my deepest fear but I've never watched an actual person give birth to an actual baby and all the work it entails. I've just imagined it:)

I would like to live in lalaland for 1.5 more months maybe!!!

I Love Bebe

I love it when my baby kicks me in the ribs. And I think I'm not supposed to:) He's about 5 pounds now but I could sit around all day feeling him kick and squirm in there!! I think I should be complaining a bit more lately instead of enjoying this. If you agree, please see the following blog posts: here you go, and here. I complained at least twice and if you ask all my family members, they will testify that I complain a lot, I'm sure:) The full frontal adult whining can really drive them crazy!

But in reality, pregnancy hasn't been that bad at all. After listening to what women say about it, my pregnancy has been a walk in the park. Well, the nausea, severe hunger, and mood swings from months 2-4 were pretty awful but who can't handle 3 months of the stomach flu punctuated by hysterical crying sessions? Only a wimp!!!! January through March nearly did me in but April left me with nothing but easiness! At least I was suffering during dull, cold, dreary months. Everyone else in Indiana was also suffering I assume, though from the weather and boredom, not hormones and a child. Then in April we were all happy!! 

Baby still has to gain 2-4 more pounds of chub and then I'll let you know how the birthing portion of his life goes. Come back in September to read "Wow, pushing a baby out was amazing! I'd totally do that again to get a squishy, cuddly, adorable little baby!!"

Don't Do This

You know how sometimes you check your e-mail really quickly or at an odd hour? And you see an e-mail that makes you think "Uh oh, they responded" and get a sinking feeling? And you know you shouldn't open the dreaded thing because you don't have the time to deal with it properly? And it'll ruin your night??? BUT YOU STILL OPEN THE DAMN THING???

I did that tonight at 12:30 while waiting for Dear Heartburn to go away. And now it's 1:38 and I have a new reason for not sleeping.

The Fair

Went to the fair today with my 2 sisters, niece, and 2 nephews. The high today was 89 degrees and smart us went at 4:30. And my sister is 3 weeks away from her baby's due date. All we did was walk around and eat fair food: walking tacos, corn on the cob, elephant ears, milkshakes, and cotton candy. 

Pretty fun, very hot, now I'm tired. Plan on sitting the rest of the night:) Can't even make a caps or exclamation mark sentence.

If My Husband Worked From Home....

He'd never get anything done because I'd be popping in every 10 minutes to talk to him. As it is, I feel like I take up too much of his time when he's supposed to be studying and working at home.

But wouldn't it be fun!! He should work part time from home and then I could see him and talk to him 20 work hours a week! And he could earn tons of money working at work the other 20 hours! Perfect!!!

Because talking to me can be quite a job sometimes. In fact, perhaps he should get a salary for that. And I should get a salary for watching him wash his hands for the 30th time in one day.

Not Sleeping at 5 AM

Last night I before I gave up and went to bed, I was lazily flipping through the book I am presently reading. I'm not the kind of person to read the end of a book before I actually get there but sometimes I do scan a word or two near the end when I'm bored. Or putting off going to bed.

This time. Uh oh. I saw the words "verdict" and "not guilty". Oops. Hope that is a very minor court case involving a very minor character.  

So I went to bed last night at 10:38 PM and decided to take a break from sleeping a little while ago at 5:00 AM. That's what I do now, every couple of nights: take a break from sleeping. Doing something for a while gets pretty monotonous and difficult when pregnant. Imagine the flopping back and forth in bed every 30 minutes. Imagine the grunting it involves to turn yourself over! Imagine getting up every 3-5 hours to pee. Imagine the weird dreams, the wiggles, the hunger. It just gets too much. So I wake up:)

And realize the world if very quiet late at night. And the Internet only holds so much entertainment when you've forgotten your book in the bedroom. Maybe I'll fold the laundry!
