This week's list:
Things that are in:
Hope. 23 weeks and 2 days today. 5 days until viability.
Childhood cereals: Fruit Loops, Frosted Flakes, Captain Crunch…..
Kicks:My child is getting stronger in there. And he likes to prove it to me late at night when I'm supposed to be sleeping. He's even giving me a preview right now as I type this.
People rubbing my belly: OK, this one is getting on my nerves. See belly. Don't touch. Geez!
Cleaning: My house is a travesty. And obviously, I can't trust C-Dub to clean. And speaking of which, why do husbands have the nerve to ask,
“Why are you doing all of that? you should be sitting down!”
Because moron, if I left it up to you, I would be afraid to sit on my own toilet.
Things that are out:
Sex. I give up. I won't do it unless I get the sad sad puppy dog eyes. And I apologize to any and everyone who I have ever criticized for not giving up the booty during pregnancy. It's just too awkward and I get tired too quickly. I mean really, there are only a few positions that work anymore, and they all involve me doing most of the work!
Spending money. Ummm, there is a baby coming in 3 months who will need lots of expensive gadgets.
Looking at the scale. Really, self explanatory there right?
Things I am working on:
Fear: I've almost got you conquered. You will be vanquished soon.
The nursery: a work in progress.
Exercise: I have a theory that this will help the swelling, give me more energy, slow the weight gain and help me to sleep better. But I need to actually exercise to test that right?????
