What I’m looking forward to 18 February, 2007

I’m looking forward to a lot of things after this pregnancy is over.

  • A new baby, of course!
  • Finding out whether said baby is a boy or a girl.
  • Being able to sleep on my back.
  • Being able to sleep on my front (eventually).
  • Being able to roll over in bed without it feeling like a major event.
  • Going for a run.  I’ve been doing a lot of walking lately, but I’d really like to feel the wind in my face again.
  • Not having to get up every hour to pee.  Sure, I might have to get up every hour for the new baby, but that’s something I can pass off if I need to – nobody else is going to pee for me.

I decided to jazz up my pram by making a pram liner with this awesome fabric.

I am now in uncharted territory. I’ve never been this pregnant before. Strangely it makes me feel a lot more zen. The end is near*.  It better bloody well be.  I cannot continue to take getting only four (five if I’m lucky) hours of sleep a night, prelabour contractions that get my hopes up, feeling like I’m going to vomit all day long, and every damn person asking me if the baby is still sitting tight every damn day.

*I started writing this two days ago and I was feeling pretty good.  Now I want to curl up in a hole.

Six weird things about me 1 February, 2007

Because Lulu made me.

  1. I don’t like pumpkin. I try it again every so often, cooked different ways but I just can’t get into it. Pumpkin soup is OK.
  2. I must start the day with a bowl of cereal. In a pinch a glass of milk will be OK, but I just won’t feel right for the rest of the day.
  3. I don’t care which side of the bed I sleep on, as long as it is closest to the door.
  4. I have a pterygium. I wear sunglasses every day of the year.
  5. I am a complete pansy when it comes to spiders.  The only ones I can get close to are Daddy Long Legs, and that’s with the vacuum cleaner.
  6. I’m not aiming to have a natural child birth because I want to be all earth mama.  The truth is the thought of pushing a baby out my vagina is far less scary to me than getting a needle stuck into my spine.  I hate needles.

I didn’t say they would be good.
