Irrelevant of this post, I noticed I have had no comments in days and days. And here I thought I was putting extra effort in lately. Oh well. This time of year has everyone off-kilter, I suppose.
Anyway, I’m in the final stretch of the time before vacation. By this time tomorrow, I will be driving back to the house to finish packing and get the car ready for our trip. I usually feel a certain amount of anxiety amd nervousness before the drive but I seem to be lacking this. At least, today I don’t feel it. I refuse to rush or be angry about cars on the road or circumstances. I want the drive to be happy and peaceful, so that when we get to my parents’ house, I am not in a bad grumpy mood. (Remind me, too, to have snacks in the car. I am not a happy camper when hungry and driving.)
In pregnancy news, I think I am really starting to show. It’s weird how that all begins because the baby is still in the uterus, lower than my belly. But the body begins to readjust its weight so that the stomach gets all hard and round, even though the baby itself hasn’t moved that much higher. I bought a different type of maternity jeans this weekend and they’re much more comfortable, except they tend to fall down just enough so that most of my shirts don’t hide that blue ever-telling pregnancy band. Sleeping is rough but not too bad. I went and got a prenatal massage on Saturday morning and that was relieving. In fact, that’s the most relaxed I have felt in a long time. It was also one of the best massages I have had, even though it was only 30 minutes. I wish I could afford one of those about every month until I gave birth. Because how awesome would that be??
When we get back from Thanksgiving, I will only have 4 days until the gender revaling ultrasound. Just like last time, I “feel” like it’s a boy but I don’t know 100% if that’s because I “want” a boy. And this time around, I have this extra idea that my body produces boys so that’s, naturally, what this kidlet is. Who knows? They say a mom can tell but I also second-guess myself a lot. BUT, I am having very similar food cravings and I am carrying pretty much the same way.
I guess it won’t matter either way, to be honest. Like everyone says, so long as it’s healthy.
So, this post isn’t a whole lot of substance btu I have been working on it, basically, all day long. Maybe one tomorrow before my big break.
