Can you see my belly in her sunnies? Completely unintentional but hard to avoid these days.
It's currently 4:15 in the morning and I have been tossing and turning in bed for 45 minutes because I have way too much on my mind and am feeling overwhelmed. Instead of just lying there worrying my sleepy little head off, I figured I would come out in the living room and write this post which I had planned on writing during nap time today but chances are I will probably want to nap too.
Wishing: For my mind to shut off when it's time to sleep- but that one is pretty obvious. What I am really wishing for is a healthy new baby and a safe delivery. I'm a little scared about going into labor at home because Aubs was induced so every aspect of my labor last time was monitored and I was able to buzz a member of the medical staff if I had even the slightest question. This time since I don't have GD there is really no reason for me to be induced so chances are I will be going through all of the early stages of labor at home. I know I'll be fine and women all over the world do and have been doing it since the beginning of man. That fact really doesn't make me any less nervous, even though I wish it did.
Reading: Nothing really at the moment except other blogs. I go in and out of stages where I read a lot and right now I'm in a stage where I am not reading at all. It's probably also because I have so much on my plate at the moment that I feel guilty reading. Also any "spare" moment that I have had over the past couple of weeks has been spent watching the Olympics.
Cooking: Freezer meals. When I was pregnant with Aubs I had stocked up about 40 meals so that we wouldn't end up ordering take out or I wouldn't stress myself out about cooking when I was exhausted or felt like I didn't have the time. I probably won't make quite as many this time around because like I said before, I feel like there is a million other things that need to be done too.
Anticipating: Besides the impending birth of my second child, I am anticipating my 36 week check-up later this morning. With all of the braxton hicks and uncomfortable pressure I am having, I am wondering if I have made any progress as far as dilation goes.
Missing: Being able to move around comfortably. This is pretty much a problem in everything I do. It's most noticeable when I am doing dishes because I always end up with a wet belly or when I am playing with Aubs. You should have seen me trying to color with her on the floor the other day. Yeah- coloring on the floor won't be happening again until there is no longer a small human residing in my abdomen.
