Preggers Confessions - Page 6

post #101 of 109

I've been a bad bad girl!

I refuse to be frightened by anything, including medical advice (although I did scream in the shower yesterday when a huge spider dropped on my breast from the ceiling... but I think that's pretty understandable). This is my 3rd pregnancy, and here's my current "bad" behaviors from this time around.

1. I eat unpasteurized cheeses. I adore cheese. I'm quite sure women in other countries survive on their homemade cheeses during pregnancy.

2. We live in wine country, and I've enjoyed several small glasses of wine since my 6th month. The most I've had is two glasses in one night, so it isn't like I'm a total wino... just enjoying the vintage!

3. Those prenatal vitamins usually just sit up on the shelf. I forget to take them all the time!

4. When we have sex, I still like to be on the bottom, flat on my back (yeah, at 32 weeks). It feels good for me, so why not?

5. We eat hotdogs for dinner a couple times a week. I know they are nutritional nightmares in general, but in 100+ heat, there's no way I'm cooking dinner! I pop a few in the microwave and cut them into little pieces and my DS (4) and DD (2) and I share one plate of them with ketchup!

6. Still have coffee at least once a day. A must with preschoolers, I think. Evidence of my addiction: my DS says "Venti Mocha!" every time he sees the Starbucks logo.

I ate an entire bag of candy corn over the last 3 days.

I just cried at a Pampers commercial. (It was really sappy!)

I haven't taken my prenatal vitamin or extra iron in a week.

I made an excursion to Target on Monday and lifted a box which was probably way too heavy for me... but I was impatient and didn't want to try to get help. Then I kind of pivoted it on the edge of the cart and thumped it into the back of the car. Later when I asked my dad to move it into the house for me, I lied when he asked how I got it into the cart and into the car.
(I knew this was likely my last excursion to Target... I needed to make it count!)

The only place I feel like I can empty my bladder all the way is standing up in the shower.

I snapped at my mom the other day, and then I felt bad. She wouldn't stop bugging me about "have you done this yet?" "have you done that yet?"

Yay, the return of my favourite thread! Is it a bad sign when the list of "confessions" is giving me ideas of things to do?

This actually sounds like a very clever idea to me at this point!

I've abandoned my exercise routine, which was pretty lame-o to begin with (15 minutes of a prenatal yoga dvd, plus getting off the subway one stop early and walking). At this point, being conscious and breathing seems like enough of an effort.

On that note, I fell asleep at my desk yesterday. I was reading something on the computer and resting my head in my hands, and next thing I know I'm waking up ten minutes later. It was very refreshing, actually.

I eat ice cream with chocolate sauce every night. In general, I'm eating like a Hobbit these days: first breakfast, second breakfast, elevenses, lunch, tea...

I've fought with/snapped at DH every day this week. I firmly believe our fights are the direct result of his lack of consideration and general doltitude; however, I guess there's the slight tiniest possibility that I might be just a wee bit hormonal and snappish.

I don't bother to take my dog for a walk after she pees/poops in the house because really, why bother, she's already gone.

I've had a half-mug of coffee every day for the past two weeks.

I fixed the toilet and put together a dresser from Ikea last weekend. I plan on installing the car seat this weekend since DH finally realizes we need it after my prelabor has ramped up this week

I've been slacking on my daily walks. I have pain where my legs meet my torso, but the walks do help my sacrum feel less tight. So I try to make the ones I do take count by walking around a manmade lake at a park 10 minutes from me.

I HAVE to have two donuts at least once a week. Something about autumn makes me crave them!

1. I drink coffee every morning. It's technically only one cup, although I bet my mug really holds 2-3 cups.
2. I almost never do kegels. Well, only after I sneeze.
3. I sent the baby's birth certificate form in with my hospital pre-registration, and I left blank the section on whether I'd smoked during this pregnancy and how much weight I've gained. Now, I've never smoked even once in my life, but what flippin' business is that of the government? I am feeling more and more non-compliant by the day.
4. I am due in 17 days, and I've only crossed 3 items off my "to-do before baby comes" list.

Yup, that's me too!

Yesterday I took the scissors to the elastic band in my underpants and maternity pants. I hate to hurt clothing like that, but the elastic was digging and I'll be DAMNED if I spend another penny on maternity clothing now at 38 weeks!!!!
I may end up driving to my remaining midwife appointments, NSTs, and the birth wearing one of DP's camo ponchos. That should be big enough to cover me!

I push on the baby to get her to change positions. I try to be nice... but dang! The right side of my ribcage can only take so much. I did this with all of my children and it doesn't appear to have harmed them. ... I don't think. ...

I still have a cup of cappuccino french vanilla stuff from a can every single morning. I think it has more sugar and fat than actual caffeine.

I eat deli meat and cheese.

I don't give a crap how much I've gained.

I had crappy Velveeta shells with sausage last night and it was SOOOO good.
