Thirty Six Weeks

Today I am 36 weeks pregnant & I am so ready for her to come out. I've officially hit the too uncomfortable part of the pregnancy. I keep running into people who think I've dropped a little, or who say they are sure she will be early -- I can only hope these are truths.

Sir Winston is watching from the hallway.

I love looking down & seeing her move around, and feeling her little hiccups, but I'm ready for her to come out now. I just want to be comfortable again.

I have no idea why there is a tangerine on the back of the toilet.

I'm ready for walking without a waddle, skin that doesn't feel like it's going to tear at any moment, panel-less pants, being able to bend over & put my boots on without being in agony & sleep -- oh sleep, and being horizontal position at all without aching & being so uncomfortable. (I make this sound incredible, don't I?) The truth is, I can't be too annoyed since I've had such a great pregnancy, but hey, I'm ready for it to be over. I want to have my little baby girl squirming around on the outside & away from my precious organs.

I still don't know where my stomach is hiding. Perhaps it's somewhere near my spine.

Just four more weeks.

We are pretty much prepared for her arrival. Our bassinet is coming soon (this week?) and the other furniture for her room will arrive shortly after (not that she will need it all right away). Other things I'd like to do include: washing all of her clothing & blankets, organizing her room a little better (including finding her a bookshelf) and cooking up some casseroles & freezable food so I won't have to cook when she's brand new.

The boy was so tired after work today that he fell asleep a short while ago. Sweet dreams babe.

I hope your holidays went well & to all of the pregnant ladies reading -- I hope you're feeling comfortable & happy & healthy! Have a fabulous evening & send comfy thoughts my way. Peace.

Oh wow! Uncomfortable as you are, you look gorgeous! :) Not long to go now, though - hope you feel more comfortable soon!

Wow. You've dropped a bunch! I remember doing everything from carrying rosemary on my person to sniffing (NOT drinking) castor oil to induce pregnancy at the point you're at now. I was so insanely anxious for that baby to come along. 13 and a half years later I kinda miss those days...kinda.

@elly: Awe, thanks so much! Hopefully soon, soon, soon!

@melanie: I'd like to know all of your labour inducing tricks! I know about raspberry leaf tea, but that's about it (oh, and spicy food and sex, of course) -- but what worked for you? At what point were your little ones born? Curious me!

You're looking great! I can only hope along with you that she is ready to make her appearance sooner than later! At 3 weeks behind you I can feel the same symptoms creeping on, and am crossing my fingers things stay where they are...but she is just getting so big so fast, my body can't seem to keep up! But I am right with you for being lucky and having an easy pregnancy. At least that much was good! :)

oh my you are absolutely darling. this waiting game you are playing is about the most unpredictable, crazy and totally fun thing ever. really, it's like the best surprise party. you just have to embrace it. and enjoy it.. i was four days over and completely uncomfortable, ready for him to come.

sending you good wishes. and honey, don't worry.. the nursing thing will come. i feared the worst, but it (thankfully) came so easily for me and hope it will for you too. just ease into it and relax and love your babe to pieces.

if you have any questions, just email me.. i have just been there!

@marta: Thank you so much for your support! It is a fabulous waiting game -- sadly my spine isn't feeling so fabulous these days!
Many thanks & much love! You're family is beautiful.
