My existence is a life-long treasure hunt.

33 Weeks

Whew, my brain is fried. Work is crazy. I’m tired. Minicorn is allowing me to eat Multigrain Cheerios with diced strawberries again, so that’s comforting. I have been eating 2 huge bowls a day. I’m sick of oatmeal. I’ll pick it up again maybe after birth to help with my milk supply.

I found out yesterday that Crabby’s mom used cloth diapers on him and his sister. Neither of us ever knew! How awesome! She did it as a cost-saving move because Crabby and his sister are only 13 months apart.

Minicorn is the size of a pineapple this week which is just cracking me up. Imagine an entire-ass pineapple, just chillin’ in there.

Thanks everyone who volunteered to share their birth stories. I will be e-mailing you all soon (if I have your e-mail). If I don’t have your e-mail, holla at bohemianbahamian@gmail.com . I want to hear/read ALL of your stories, even the not good experiences. I think it’s important to have a wide range of perspectives and experiences; and I personally love reading ALL birth stories.

Good news at my 32-week check-up last week: Minicorn is now in the correct position. Midwife said she could still turn again, but I tuned her out. I don’t need to hear all of that, thankies!

There are 5 midwives at my practice. I really like 2 of them and I am hoping I get 1 of them when it’s labor time. You meet with a different one each week because you never know which of them will be on call when. The other 3 are meh, okay, but I definitely click with 2 of them. UNIVERSE HEAR ME!

Um, what else? Did I mention the pelvic pain? That was actually my clue that Minicorn changed positions because I went from horrible back pain to an extremely sore pelvis; I guess due to all the pressure on it from her new and improved head-down, facing backward position. It hurts to walk sometimes and it’s excruciating standing up from my desk chair or trying to get out of bed at times. Whatevs.

I only gained half a pound between 30 and 32 weeks which I figured would happen. I haven’t been that hungry. Packing in the nutrients, food-based prenatal, DHA supplement, Floradix/iron supplement, etc.

WOO LAWD THOUGH LET ME TELL YOU I had a sudden ninja donut attack craving. Donuts are generally not vegan. I wanted them. Specifically, Shipley’s glazed donuts. I’m not sure if they’re Texas only or south only, but if you ever get a chance, try them. Bucket list worthy. I hope I don’t get fined by vegans for that. Or my vegan card revoked. I haven’t had donuts in YEARS. 5 or more years. I ordered 2 and immediately knew that this is what it feels like when doves cry.

 

Until next time, my dears!

    LOVE IT. It’s nice to know others are sitting in the same pelvic pain boat. This week (30) is cabbage week. I swear, the food analogies are weird. A pineapple? all I kept thinking about was the PAIN of having a pineapple come out of my vagina! When I hit 32 weeks, I may need another comparison!

  6. I’m with Krissy!! Hahahahahaha! Whatever I was about to say the doves cry KILT it! LOL!
