This “return to blogging” has been pretty pathetic. Probably because I started at a time when I should have been cutting back on my extra-curriculars, but oh well.
I am now almost 29 weeks. Crazy. Here’s what I look like, without my messy hair:(I realize that my cat looks like he has been stretched out and digitally manipulated, but I assure you, this is what he looks like when hungry).
I really need to take my “do less, worry less” goals more seriously. This is Spring Break, so instead of laying around, like this (as was the goal):
I decided that this would be a great time to socialize with people I haven’t seen, as pregnancy makes me sleepy. On Monday evening, Blokey and I went to see friends from my old pool team. To make a long story short, I ended up having weird, painful menstrual like cramps that night and had to go to Labor and Delivery Triage in the morning. It wasn’t Braxton-Hicks, and it wasn’t round ligament pains, but luckily everything checked out. Plus, I got to see little buddy on the sonogram manchine. He is already 3 lbs and 2 oz. Big guy! I am cleared to fly to California next week.
Anyway, I’ve been having long chats with belly buddy about the importance of being patient enough to stay inside until he is full term, or close to full term. Little buddy is already head down, and occasionally punching downwards.
Other than this scare, the first week of my final trimester has been nice. After our hospital visit, I took my napping responsibilities seriously. And there are still plenty of social plans for the rest of the week, but I am trying to cut down on my other ambitions and responsibilities between now and my SF trip.
It’s finally in the 50s and sunny here in NYC. Is Spring actually here? I took out a bunch of my warmer weather clothes (many of which are summery dresses) and realized that they just don’t fit my new figure. Everything has spread and I had no idea how fitted my tops were to my formerly small chestal arena, so my optimistic idea that I’d wear a lot of existing summer dresses when the weather changed has been dashed. Bigger summer/spring dresses are on my second hand shopping list.
Hope everyone else has been feeling something like spring in their parts!
