. . . yeah.
according to my iphone app, there are 99 days left in this pregnancy. i’m guessing it will be my last [though one never knows!], so i’m trying not to go into countdown mode. plus, i’m in no rush at this point; i have to admit i will very much miss sleeping through the night.*
currently: 26 weeks
craving: wine. daytime naps [and this weekend THEY WILL HAPPEN]. oh, and shopping for non-maternity clothes.
gain: 15 or 16 lbs so far.
excited about: picking out some boy outfits!
anxious for: josh to commit to a name! i have several that i really like, but the decision has to be mutual, you know?
not feeling it: the whole nursery thing is not calling to me yet. the room is a calm yellow, which i like, but i don’t feel like thinking of a ‘scheme’ and i don’t really want to invest in a 2nd crib. thinking of getting a convertible crib/toddler bed for a. and then moving annabel’s crib to baby bro’s room. or maybe we’ll just use a cosleeper until he’s 2. [kidding. although i didn’t have STAIRS to contend with when annabel was still nursing at night. it might be harder to make that leap this time around.]
feeling it: people are making ‘funny’ jokes about me going into labor. i don’t think i look THAT huge, but i am not one of those people who can hide a pregnancy well. whatever.
really feeling it: running is just harder this time, and i have no idea why. i plan to continue for now, but not sure i will make it to 40 weeks the way i did with a.
so, that’s pretty much where we stand at 26 weeks!
two more things:
1) BOARDS ARE OVER!!! i won’t get the verdict for 3 months, but i’m just glad i won’t have studying [or . . . the guilt of NOT studying] hanging over my head every night.
2) annabel‘s new fave phrase: “don’ LIKE it.”** at first it was cute. then . . . well, let’s just hope she picks a new one soon.
* which i have been enjoying for almost a year now — when i am not thwarted by work-related calls or pregnancy-related bathroom trips.
** “t” of “don’t” left out on purpose, because that’s how it sounds
