That Tom Petty really knew his shit. Waiting? It totally is the hardest part. We feel suspended in Waiting Land right now. I know, I knooooooowwwwww - that's no way to live, waiting for the next thing to happen when there are perfectly good days right in front of your face to be living. Seize the day and all that. I KNOW YOU GUYS. But seriously? When you've got a baby's butt in your neck and her head hanging somewhere around your mid-thigh, and you're living in a lake cabin made for vacations with two kids and three cats with all of your useful and beloved belongings gathering dust in your perfectly nice family-sized house across the country, and you're DYING to do the whole nesting thing but have no nest to actually, you know, "do" and pinning crap on Pinterest just isn't doing it anymore .... tick tock. Waiting. Hard. Tick. Tock.
I saw the OB this morning for my second to last ever OB appointment. Which, really, was the highlight of my week because it meant I had a sitter for the kids and got to drive down to Wausau with MUSIC on and not cartoons, and got to eat at Jimmy John's afterward and read a book. And go to Target, because duh. All was well at the doctor. Alarming, to find out your baby is measuring 40 weeks when you're 37 and two days, so really she's the size she should be when she comes out but she has ten full days to gestate and get bigger and bigger and bigger and she'll probably come out needing 18-24 month clothes or speaking in sentences or with a full set of teeth or something. But somehow, she's managing to gain the weight without it reflecting on MY weight, so that's magical. Actually it's not magic, it's me eating the blandest most boring diet in the whole world to minimize the night pukes. Likesuchas the super tasty bowl of Rice Krispys I just had for dinner when what I really wanted was a freaking pizza. Yays!
37 weeks, 2 days. Officially out of shirts that fully cover the bottom of the belly and pretty sure my thighs DO NOT look that big in real life. But fresh highlights!
And I can eat pizza again without vomming.
