30 weeks, 3 days
Ok, it is 2:44 in the morning, and I can't sleep
I have had major insomnia lately. I have no problem falling alseep at oh, 8:00 PM. but then I wake up at 1-2 AM and can't fall back to sleep. It sucks. Especially because DH is a total night owl, and when I wake up at 1-2 AM he is still up, so then I am up waiting for him to go to bed. Grrrr.
DH leaved tomorrow to starts work early Wed AM. We can't move into our apartment until Sept 5th, so he is going up there and staying in an extended stay hotel for 1 1/2 weeks (well coming home on the weekend), and then we move in on labor day.
I have been so hungry lately thought, and it is freaking me out. I have gained way tooo much weight. I have never weighed this much before. I just want this baby to be born, so I can stop gaining and hopefully lose some of it. It is very depressing...Lately, I have been really missing my skinny, college, pre-kids, pre-marriage body. I know it is all for a good cause and all, but WHY do we have to gain weight to have a baby? Why can't be just have the baby without the weight gain?? Of course, it totally doesn't help that I am at my parents house now and surrounded by junk food. My mom is always hosting parties or celebrations for church or her other organizations and then she brings the left-over donuts and cookies and muffins and chips home. So, I have been eating way more of that crap than I should.
QOTW: No, I do not have everything. No where near it. I don't even have a midwife anymore. I have just started looking, but haven't picked a final one yet. I have enough newborn clothes, however I need heavier, winter things. Heidi was born in Feb in KY, so by the time she 2 months old, it was really warm. Greta will be born in Oct in NH, so it is only going to get colder.
I also need more diapers, don't have all those yet. I am trying to wait until I am closer to giving birth before buying anything, but I do need to start looking for bargains. I need a double stoller, but probably won't get that until the spring, since I figure I can wear Greta all winter long, will keep her warm outside and hopefully she won't be too big to comfortably sling and power-walk before summer (although DD was 20 pounds by 6 months, so we will see). I need to get cloth to make my wrap-sling. I also need a high-chair (but won't need that for seveal months yet, so I am not worried about that), playpen -or bouncy chair, something to put Greta in for short periods of time - I used to just lay Heidi on a blanket on the floor when she was small to do quick things like make lunch and stuff, but with a 2-year old around, I dont' want to do that. I also need more nursing bras, breast pads and cloth pads for me. Eeeek.. I have a lot to do!
