denim - Target
I feel like this post could read two very different ways because some days I start dreaming up elaborate holsters to wear on my person to tote around my Tums and I get winded just thinking about walking down the stairs to switch the laundry and I just KNOW that today will be the day that my glorified spandex that I call maternity jeans laugh in my face when I try to paint them on yet again. But other days I'm totally fine and almost (ha! that's a fat almost) forget I'm pregnant and am happy to tote Phoebe around as much as her little highness desires and does anyone really care? No.
Let's make up some questions ...
are we settled on names? NO. No. Simon says we are "narrowed down enough" to just decide on the way to the hospital but ... I disagree and have the lengthy LENGTHY lists of names saved on my phone to prove it. So, hopefully he plans on taking the long way to Labor and Delivery.
has this pregnancy been noticeable different from the other four? I know every mom says that their in utero babe is very active but I specifically remember noting how lazy Phoebe was so maybe it just seems like this baby is extra kicky but ... I do wonder if and when he/she sleeps because they have a lot of energy to exert. All the time. This is the only reason I think it could potentially maybe (just maybe!) be a boy because I remember Sebastian was the same way.
biggest cravings? (really reaching here! I'm sorry) it varies by the day but spicy food always sounds good. Always. And popsicles ... I've resorted to sneak-eating them in the bathroom when the kids are awake because I'm selfish.
will Simon deliver the baby? No. No, no no no. I have my own OB that I really, really like and while some wives like their husbands to catch their offspring I am not one of them. Is it nice to know I won't have to have a resident that I know personally (I really love all the residents Simon works with but ... I'm not in love with a male swooping in ... and I realize this makes me a huge hypocrite) come in if the baby precips (it won't .... Phoebe and Theo paved that stubborn way) and Simon can do the honors if he needs to? Of course.
how old will the baby be when we move? Young. Probably around a week old. I'll fly down with the baby and Julia while Simon will drive with the middle three kids (his choice!) ... please pray for him because I think he is insane but he insists, "it will be fine" ..... (okay). We are moving to an apartment for a month starting the week after next (yay, double move) BUT it's really nice to be in the thick of packing the bulk of our stuff now when I'm 34/35 weeks along (to go into storage down in Tampa) vs. at 39/40 weeks or with a newborn. Are you resting easy that you know our summer itinerary and writing this down in your calendar? I hope so.
Oh my gosh ... how's your siesta? This is getting DRY. You deserve better. I'll just have to try harder tomorrow when you get an exciting 33 week + 6 day bumpdate.
Or am I?
