33 weeks

Growing right along {I say that at some point in a post every pregnancy ... the depths of my creativity are endless} at 33 weeks and 5 days because every hour counts at this point.

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.

;)

Just kidding.

Or am I?

  1. We moved--many moons ago--for residency, with a one week old. "Can't. . .nursing baby" dominated my vocabulary.

  4. I mean who else other than you can make all of your summer "fun" sound fun??! I will pray for Simon because he be crazy driving with 3 littles by himself but kuddos to him for doing it. I break out into a sweat if I have to drive more than an hour with my 2 and 5 year old....obviously I have problems! Oh and you are looking gorgeous as always, I mean seriously I am not even pregnant and I don't look that good!

  6. I need to take some calming tips from you. I would be so stressed out, you'd find me curled up in a ball, eating my hair. Obviously I am super well adjusted.

    You look amazing. Seriously, it almost isn't fair. But you're too nice to jealous-hate. :)

  7. Haha! Sneak eating popsicles in the bathroom. I love it. I did the same with cookie dough when I worked at a frozen yogurt place years back. Did I miss whether you've found a house in Florida?

  8. Simon is either insane or a saint for his transportation to FL plans

  9. Does this mean the house sold? If so congratulations.
    I actually love to read the mundane details of pregnancy and births. When I was pregnant with my first people wanted to tell me their birth/pregnancy stories and I was like "STOP! This is so boring." , but now I try to get people I barely know to give me all the details. So, point being, keep em coming!

  12. Hold on. When we moved, just across the city, it required an army of help and a grandmother who promised to keep the kids alive and far, far away. I am so impressed.

  13. I have said it before and I'll say it again....pregnancy just looks good on you. And these pastel colors look amazing! The craziness surrounding your move it too much for me to mentally handle right now, but if anyone can do all of this it is YOU!

  14. Grace, I am the oldest of 5, so I seriously read your posts and laugh. The mass chaos of that many kids, no one truly knows unless you are in the thick of it. It is the best thing though! I am so grateful my parents were nuts and wanted a big family.

  15. Wish I could be a fly on the wall in the car when Simon drives those 3 to Tampa. Since Phoebe's such a joy in a car seat and all.....

  16. Grace, I just love you posts! I am the oldest of 5 kids and no one really understands the chaos unless you are in the thick of it. I am so grateful to my crazy parents for wanting 5 children. I have the best memories.

  17. We moved from GA to NM with a four month old that loved road trips as much as Phoebe. Two years later I flew cross country with my 2 yo and three week old while my husband drove our stuff. Then we moved again and took an epic 2000 mile moving-cross-country-so-let's-visit-all-the-people road trip with 5 yo, 3 yo and five week old. We have always moved with a newborn, which is why I say I will never get pregnant again. Loved your post as always. Congrats and good luck on exciting times ahead. Oh, and be prepared for questions from flight staff about flying with newborn.

  18. I love the posts where you wear heels. They don't make me feel like a failure at all because you are pregnant, a Mom and wearing heels! Good luck on your move!

  19. Super woman, I am 34 weeks also, we closed on a house a week ago that is being repainted and refloored by us. We are literally moving two miles away and I am living in dread. Our two year old is a dream to have around painting. Good luck with everything!

  20. I just had at least 16 anxiety attacks reading this. We moved 20 miles last summer when we had a 4-year-old, 3-year-old and 7-month-old. I was sure it was THE HARDEST THING EVER DONE EVER. You put me to shame, and I applaud you for keeping your cool! Everything absolutely works out, no matter what. Prayers to you guys during all the upcoming transitions!

  21. Grace you looks fabulous! Best of luck on the upcoming move. I'm glad y'all will be in Tampa - such a great community there!

  22. We flew to Barcelona with our then two and a half yr old and an 18 mother, and I was six months pregnant. Can I just say that on the way home I thanked God more than once for one having a fever and the other having a moderate case of laryngitis. He does work in mysterious ways.
