I guess a pregnancy update may be called for.
So here I am at 8 1/2 months pregnant trying to look less-than-dead so Kait could snap a quick picture of me. I thought about photo shopping some lipstick or some very pinterest-y maternity clothes onto myself but then realized that I ain’t got no time for that so I just went with what I was wearing at the time the picture was taken and I’m calling it good.
I had my 38 week appointment today and all is well. Baby is moving and both our hearts are beating and everything is going just like it normally does.
We still don’t know the gender and some people seem to think this whole “new” not finding out thing is just a phase or popular thing to do right now.
Um… What else. Let’s see.
Food doesn’t taste right anymore. Everything is somewhat bland except sour foods. And even then I can only take so much sour.
Lucy refuses to believe there is a new baby coming. She told me today, very seriously and shaking her head in doubt, that if there is a baby coming she will play with it, but then she will put it down. When I told her there was a baby in my giant basketball of a belly she told me, no. When I asked her if she thought it was a girl or a boy she said, it’s not a girl or a boy.
I’m tired. I’m sore. I have a lot of restless joint issues.
But I’m getting a new baby and that pretty much cancels out any discomfort I’m going through.
Just about 2 weeks left. We’ll let you know what happens.
