Pro: My boobs are bigger than they have ever been before. Besides breastfeeding I suppose!
(although not sure why this is a pro to anyone but Brian, because MAN do they hurt! Also, maybe not even such a pro for Brian because, well, MAN do they hurt!)
Con: They are dwarfed by my large belly so no one can ever tell.
Pro: My large belly makes my behind look smaller than it ever has before! Downright petite in comparison!
Con: It is most certainly not petite. Not. at. all. As everyone will notice in a few months when the belly stops being an appropriate fixation for your eye.
In fact I might go so far as to say that it is the biggest it has ever been?…but no! I just can’t. That is too depressing! And I could ask Brian, but he will probably just mumble something about needing to work and leave the room.
In other news- sadly, no more Drumsticks for me, as they give me TERRIBLE heartburn! Oh, they are so delicious, I feel a bit teary just thinking about them, but not worth the burning bile creeping into your mouth at 2 am.
And, if the old wives tales are right (which-apparently they are!) , I am having the male version of Rapunzel. Because even oxygen seems to give me heartburn! Wake up in the morning with an empty stomach and- hello stomach bile!
Other than that, and bad lower back pain this week (made worse when I fell in a hole today) (yes a hole) (I don’t want to talk about it), I am peachy keen and trucking right along!
I still am grossed out by rice and the smell of my homemade bread baking. I have a new recipe in the oven right now for us to try out-fingers crossed!- but we have been having to…wait for it…wait for it…EAT STORE-BOUGHT BREAD! Oh, the shame!!
I am feeling the baby kick all the time- along with some strange “Come feel this lump-what is that?!” moments, which I love. Every night I fall asleep feeling him move.
The newborn clothes are still in the attic (I think. I haven’t seen them since before our move), my niece is still sleeping in the bassinet I’m going to use, and I have only bought the baby three things.
Also, I don’t know for sure what doctor or hospital I am going to deliver.
So I should probably get my act together?
Or maybe microwave some s’mores and watch the newest Underworld with Brian?
Yep, I choose that one.
