I’m here. I just don’t have a lot to say right now. I could complain about how miserable and achy and exhausted I am right now but I think everyone knows that a 9 months pregnant woman is pretty uncomfortable, so there’s no use restating the obvious. So I’ll just say this – I am so ready to have this baby.
I could tell you about the meltdown I had last night over something Nate did. But I won’t. I am proud of myself for refraining from coming on here/Facebook and posting about it last night because I wanted to in a bad way. I will just say that he spent the night on the couch but we are fine now. I’ll probably look back and laugh at how sensitive and hormonal I was over something so silly but last night – and even now – it was something BIG and important to me. But then again, to me, everything is BIG right now. Especially myself. But let’s not go there…
I have reached the point where I don’t have to be reminded to rest and stay off my feet. I am resting and staying off my feet because I am too tired to do anything else. Today I have done nothing but get dressed, get Emily dressed, and take a shower. I haven’t even emptied the dishwasher yet and it’s 2 pm. And the crazy thing is that I don’t feel particularly guilty about it, nor am I in any way motivated to get up and do it. There is no way that would have happened a week ago.
I finished a couple of last minute chores this week before my exhaustion took over – all the bottles/accessories are washed/sterilized/ready to go and put away, I have the hospital bag 80% packed (everything else is last minute stuff that I can’t pack yet, but I have a list for those items), I’ve cleaned the house, kept up with the laundry and everyday chores, AND I managed to get our stairs painted. We have old wooden stairs that were painted gray when we bought the house – I would LOVE to replace them with some nice oak stairs but in the meantime, I repainted them and they look so much nicer. It’s amazing what a simple coat of paint will do. I did that on Thursday and I think it about did me in because I haven’t done much of anything since.
Nate is currently working on cleaning my living room carpet with the Rug Doctor he rented earlier this morning. Having the carpet clean always makes me feel better. 😉
I’ve been thinking about this today – what am I looking forward to more? Getting to meet and hold my baby boy finally or not being pregnant anymore…?
…I’ll have to get back to you on that one. But thankfully I get to experience both in about 10 days….
