it's week 36 people and do you KNOW what that means? that means we (river and i) have officially been getting to know each other for 9 months!
9. freaking. months.
and of course, as most of you know, we celebrated with some big time fun and MOVED our entire house to yes, another house. and here, in today's belly shot is my new bedroom.
there's a new window and a familiar bed. though i can't say right now if things will be arranged this way forever because um, i can barely find clothes in the morning. this outfit, required no less than 6 bags to be ripped open before i would discover something usable but poof! i'm dressed and i'll take it.
other than the most obvious new thing of the week, there have been some pregnant developments that i will attribute only to being 36 weeks along and here they are:
1. LOSING my mind. i forgot hank's name. i mean, i said it outloud and then wondered secretly, wait, was that right? is his name hank? what did i say? ...and then, i forgot easton's name. and i wanted to call him to me but seriously could NOT remember his name. i thought that maybe it was easton but that sounded wrong so i didn't call him.
2. braxton hicks - or as we hypnobirthing students call them - practice surges. they're for practicing and honing my meditationy skillz. and i'm getting good because when these happen to me, my stomach literally comes to a point in the center and i cannot move comfortably. so i just close my eyes, breathe and wait. not gonna lie, it's kinda super exciting. i'm like..oh yeah uterus!? let's make this work for both of us! and then we do and it's happy and i waddle away.
3. speaking of waddling... waddling. now, there are many people who would probably tell you that i've been waddling for a while now. and while it's probably true, my reasons for it have evolved. for the last ohidontknowhowmany months, i've had INTENSE pelvic bone
we went and had an ultrasound last week. river bunny is squished to shit in there, poor kid. they're guessing he weighs a little over 6 lbs currently but since i have no idea how they came to that guess, i'm not putting any money on it. though i should really start a pool. i'll commission hank to get on that - he loves a good game. hank - you reading this? make it happen, lover.
i have a lot more to come on my new house this week but can i just say in the interim, um....big houses are scary.
oh and you did enter this giveaway, right?
