8 months! Another milestone! Home stretch. Wow.
Nothing much to report. My appetite has slowed down, I’ve noticed. For a while I haven’t been eating double portions; sometimes barely normal-sized. I’m not sure if that’s really my appetite or if I don’t want to cram a lot in there because there’s not much room.
I need to finalize things for the shower. I have out-of-town family and friends coming in, which makes me anxious. I have to entertain these people who spent money to come see me! Mixed crowds, mingling people….simmer down, social anxiety. Stir in a little family drama and let sit. Mm-hmm.
As I get closer, I am probably going to hit up some of you to see if you will be open to doing guest posts while I’m adjusting to Minicorn. I want guest posts featuring your own pregnancies, birth stories, and adjustment to a newborn, stuff like that. I love reading others’ perspectives and I know you as readers will too.
Friday I find out if my (admittedly half-assed) efforts to get Minicorn to turn around worked or if I still have some work to do.
I’m also trying to find good sources of information to send to Crabby about how to help me achieve the best natural labor I can. I realize now that the midwife will not be with me the whole time if there are other labors going on. So she will be in and out, and so will the labor and delivery nurses, and I don’t know how that’s going to be. So if there’s going to be large chunks of time with just us, I want him to feel confident in knowing how to help me. Suggestions welcome.
Other than that, I’m just feeling so unorganized. I feel like there are THINGS I need to be doing to prepare, but what?? Where is the ultimate to-do list? I like to-do lists.
Here’s the caftan Kit sent me, Jesus Fluffy Christ it is so comfortable. Highly recommend one of these bad boys.
And here I am in my 8-month glory:
I also took my maternity photos this weekend with Some.Sweet. I saw a proof on Instagram, and I can’t wait to see the rest! If she lets me use it here, I’ll post it separately.
EDIT: Here it is!
P. S. Ramit has yet another contest going. This one is for 2 roundtrip tickets to anywhere in the USA. Where would you go? Me? Hawaii. Enter here.
