pbm: week 38
week 38 is here.
that sounds awfully ripe, doesn't it? this outfit epitomizes my daily home wear. belly exposed at all times, tank tops because it's so damn hot and really any shorts, yoga pants or undies will work to finish it off. comfort is king.
today is my first day of working at home while i wait to see when this little river will flow his way into our lives. i'm a little conflicted. what do i do? where do i go? what time do i shower? ...unpack...check email...run errands...clean...relax....eat.
my current brain dump.
i'm off to a doctor's appointment now but a quick update on how things are going:
new things: period cramps. what do these mean? these mean that this party is getting started! slowly but surely, we will meet baby bunny soon. sooo excited! seriously, about it all.
sleep: actual sleep is great. i sleep a lot and long and comfortably. BUT the second i wake up, i can feel the pain in my pelvic bone and ribs. the baby has moved to whatever side i was laying on and he's heavy. rolling over from one side to the other or pushing myself up to get out of bed is difficult...at some times, even excruciating. i'm getting very creative about using different muscles to get myself moving these days.
eating: i never recognize when im hungry so i probably go far too long without eating. then i feel nauseous and think...oh shit, when did i eat last?? at least since he's moved down some, i can fit more food in there. a full meal, hooray! weight? i haven't unpacked my scale yet so i have no idea how much more i've gained but my doctor's office scale said 170 last week which would bring me to a total gain of 34 pounds. i don't know about you other pregnant ladies but i never count the doc scale - i mean, my clothes weigh at least 5 lbs, clearly.
things i miss: still missing me. missing moving around easily. alcohol. yoga. dancing. working out. [note that i never worked out before - ha! - but man, i really miss being able to choooose not to]
things i scored on: craigslist finds. stay tuned.
