I'm back. Just got kicked hard in the cervix in front of DH, and remembered I said I'd write more. LOL Babies should not be allowed to DO that!! OUCH!!
First I want to say Good Luck, Mamamoose
with the sex talk. I get so nervous before I have to speak in public. And Good Luck, Tiffanoodle
with the job interview and trying to look "just fat". That actually sounds fun. Hope you don't waddle like I do.
This baby is so active, she drives me a little nuts sometimes. If I'm sitting or standing still, she virtually never stops moving. I feel her wiggling around at night, too when I wake up to pee. Can't wait to have her out of me! Yet I'm still really enjoying being pregnant, esp now that DH is back and we are doing so well. He's been quite the handyman lately and is helping me get the baby room ready.
I'm 31 wks today and also not getting much done around the house. Part of it is I don't care that much and part is enjoyment of relaxing w/DH and/or putting my feet up when they're swelling, and part of it is I have been pretty busy with appts and events. I've recently joined a ladies's Bible study that meets on Thurs mornings, and just started allowing nursing moms and infants from birth on up to come. They used to only accommodate ages 2-5. The group takes the summer off, so that will be nice, and they're only 4 blocks from my house.
I also recently joined a mostly crunchy moms' group in my area, and have gone to one event so far that was for pregos & new moms. It was great talking about baby wearing and cloth diapers! We're having a pedicure date next week (yay because those toes get farther away every day!). They seem like a great group of ladies, and I'm glad I joined because in Dec DH will be leaving for about a year so I'll need to keep busy.
Today I hit Goodwill and picked up an adorable little wooden rocking chair for $8. I am loving having someone special to decorate for. Baby shower is next week, and so far only 3 people have bought from either of my registries. That's okay because I told everyone I really prefer 2nd hand things anyway. I like that because then it's more of a surprise for me and less of a burden for them, but at least they know what kind of things I'm after.
I also found out WIC gives away breast pumps here so if I need one, I don't have to buy one. They said they measure people so you get one that really fits.
The weather has been perfect here for a few days now, and everyone is out walking dogs, riding bikes and motorcycles.
