I've had several strangers this week ask me when I'm due and when I saw Saturday they all say they are surprised I'm out of the house and even had one clerk ask if my husband knew I was out walking around doing errands because I COULD HAVE MY BABY ANY TIME!
Thanks for the concern strangers!
Do I have (pregnancy-related) stuff I could complain about? Sure. I pee so much it's ridiculous. No matter what position I sleep in, whichever hip is lowest aches. I have an irritable muscle around my sacrum that has been giving me fits lately, no doubt because of all the extra weight and my newly exaggerated lumbar curve. Okay. But it's not miserable. Also, just because I'm "due" anytime now does not mean I plan to jump up on your counter and squeeze out a baby, thank-you-random-checkers-at-various-stores.
"Oh, well, you can't be anywhere near having this baby, you're not even waddling yet! EVERY woman waddles! Just wait."
I'm 40 weeks. And waiting.
Oh I've got the waddling thing(not waddling yet!) and the burst of energy thing, which every day when DH comes home he asks if I had a burst of energy yet. I finally had to tell him that not everyone gets it. I think he was mostly hoping to come home to a crazy clean house. hahaha
As for waddling, I never really did last time. This time I sometimes waddle a bit the first few steps after sitting for awhile, thanks to achy muscles and joints, but it wears off quickly.
Oh and I waddle in private . But if anyone else is around, waddle I do not .
and when i do get impatient i remember - i'm garaunteed to be holding sweet baby in the next 14 days, after nearly a year of waiting, 14 days arent that many....
I was just saying this to my bff the other day! I just don't seem to remember not being pregnant anymore. I know I wasn't this time last year but I can't really picture it in my head.
The only thing bugging me really is the hip I sleep on, no matter which side it is and what position I'm in or any of that after a while of laying on one side it just hurts. As soon as I get up out of bed I'm fine. I really miss sleeping on my back!
im slightly dreading not being pregnant anymore actually, because then i'll just be fat and saggy rather than bumpy and radiant lol
But man I miss my normal wardrobe, sleeping comfortably and being able to fit through doorways without bumping into people! I'm so excited to meet my Baby and have my body back to myself (except my breasts of course which will seemingly forever belong to someone else ).
Super crunchy Mama to DS1, DS2, DD and wanting a bunch more! We homeschool, bed share, homebirth and baby wear. We're attached, we only cloth diaper and we don't vax. There's a lot more to us than that, but it won't all fit.
Alas, maybe next time I'll say, "Well, my pussy REALLY hurts when I squat! And how are YOU?"
happy wife to dh and loving mom to dd (1yr) with another little one on the way in July!!
Since my baby dropped, there has been some discomfort when s/he pounds on my bladder or drums on my cervix, but this positioning is actually more comfortable all around, because baby is no longer throwing my hip out of whack.
