How far along are you? 31 weeks 5 days
Forget those comparisons of baby to fruit - what animal do you most feel like right now? If I'm trying to get off the couch or bed - a turtle on its back. Otherwise...a baby hippopotamus.
How many cup sizes have you gone up already? Where do you think you'll end up? 2. I'm comfortably filling a D. Once my milk comes in -probably a DD. On a 5' frame. Perhaps I can pick up a moonlighting gig?
How many times a day/night do you pee? 2,748...give or take a few!
Are you ever disappointed after running to the bathroom to pee? Feeling surely there must be more then that? Half the day. There are times where a teaspoon trickles out. And I waddled quickly for that?
Have you found anything that doesn't give you heartburn? Negative. Sleeping apparently causes heartburn as its been waking me up at night. Oh wait Pepcid and Zantac don't!
What are you tired of hearing? You look so cute! No, no I don't. I look pregnant and I have competing bumps in the front and back. It hurts to sit and it hurts to stand.
What are you looking forward to? 3D ultrasound on Saturday!

I slept wrong on Saturday night and a muscle in my neck is not happy about it at all. I trudged through the pain on Sunday to get everything done and finally managed to fall asleep last night. Despite telling the hubby to come to bed a zillion times since he was falling asleep on the couch, he didn't. So then Jellybean woke up around 11:30, saw the light from the TV and wanted to get up too and watch "TB". It wasn't night night time anymore since the TB was on. After an hour, he finally fell back asleep. And I couldn't. Because now my neck hurt again and my heartburn was kicking. Then I had to pee. Then Jellybean woke up again. (Repeat cycle ad nauseum)
So its Monday, I'm back at work on about 4 hours of sleep and my neck still hurts.
Thank goodness tonight's dinner is a frozen pizza and salad!

I have a sinus infection.
A “I can feel the snot vibrating in my ears every time I blow my nose” sinus infection.
A “The pressure is making my teeth hurt” sinus infection.
A “I’m almost 8 months pregnant and absolutely miserable” sinus infection.
The minute clinic won’t see you if you’re pregnant. My GP was useless when I was breastfeeding so I doubt he would be helpful when pregnant. So I called the OB office, somewhat begging, for a prescription. My OB is off today. Of course. They are trying to track him down so he can call something in.
In the meantime, I’m dying here. At my desk. At work. Because I can’t take a sick day since I missed almost 4 days while Jellybean had the plague. And I have at the most 9 weeks of work left before maternity leave. This obviously means I need to go ahead and start playing the lottery. That way I can afford sick days.
Because this shit – sucks!
Good things about today. Jellybean woke up happy. At 6am. Walked out, sat on the couch and started watching Cars 2 for the bajillionth time. As in we just watched it last night. While munching on some cereal. Happily walked in the door at day care without a glance back at me.
Dinner is ready to pop in the oven as soon as I walk in the door. I really love meal planning sometimes. When I stick to it, it makes my life so much easier!
Now I’m going to resume not breathing. And whining. In tandem.

Yes, I know. I abandoned all of you. I swear it hasn't been intentional.
I've just been busy. Plus we've been sick for pretty much the past month. On top of running my mommy group and you know, incubating a child. Oh and working full time!
So what have we been up to? Joey attended a course to earn his med gas certification. He's now looking for a new job using that. It will pay significantly more. Long term plan is to eventually have me stay home if things pan out.
Jellybean, poor jellybean, he caught a nasty virus that had him down and out over a week, fever, blisters, no appetite. It was pitiful. He's back to normal now though and a total goofball. He's obsessed with cars, trucks and trains. We watch Cars 2 & Mater's Tall Tales a lot. Chatterbox, smart as a whip and just as mischievous. It's been pretty cool watching his personality develop and come out!
Jujube - 30 weeks along now. And I feel it! I failed my one hour glucose and passed my 2. So far growth ultrasounds have been good. I'll on OB appointments every two weeks now with a non stress test at each one and continuing growth ultrasounds every three weeks. So, I basically live at the OB office. If I go into labor before my scheduled c section date then our plan is to have me labor at home as long as possible and basically show up at the hospital ready to push so I can have a VBAC. Things are slowly coming together at home. One thing I know I don't need is clothes. Holy beejeezus - we have a ton!
I'll try to not be as much of a stranger if I can!
