39 weeks going strong
one week before my due date.
it is a friday and i have been off work for a week and my belly is so massive that sometimes it feels like i will topple over.
here is how i spend my days:
float in my pool
water the garden and yard
clean up every little detail
think of new things that still need taking care of around the house.
i've been social a lot too. tonight i went to rebecca's birthday party and stayed till almost 11:30....woo hoo late night for me! both rebecca and sylvan finally got to feel the baby move as she wriggled her little rump inside me. i had the best carrot cake in the whole wide world, made from scratch by doniella, and even sipped a bit of carolann's homemade sangria.
i wore shorts under my dress so everyone could see my real belly.
it's more fun that way.
the days are warm but i like them just fine that way.
hearing doniella and carolann talk about wearing jackets in the city made me soooo grateful for my sundresses-at-night, dry-grass-all-day, riverside, poolside, golden hot summer moon foothill town.
and my july pregnancy even!
even if i do waddle like a sweaty duck and practically fall down while trying to get out of my pool these days.
i also get way cranky in traffic and find myself just slightly more irritable toward everyday annoyances, like someone at the thrift store standing too close to me or staring at me or something like that.
i am up and down and all around, a whirlwind of energy sometimes and then a total slug.
a positive glowing happy mama sometimes and sometimes a grumpy and intolerant old lady!
still loving on my kitties bigtime and concerned about upsetting routines with them when baby comes.
billy loves to snuggle me at night. he definitely thinks of himself as my baby. now what am i going to do about that? do any of you have pets who sleep in your bedroom with your baby too?
i was feeling jolly and wild today, like some big rounded green summer sprite.
maybe a little fairy dance will bring baby out into the sunlight.
our big moment approaches....thank you all for being so absolutely sweet, supportive, helpful and wise through my pregnancy here in blogland!
