Maternity clothes? We've reached an all-time low. I wore pajama pants to work. Granted they are gray and lounge-y and could probably pass for non-pj's but they are pajamas nonetheless. And it was good.
Don't most babies drop in the later part of pregnancy? Why is mine going higher?
Sleep: I may or may not have taken my friend Alyssa's advice about picking up some Tylenol PM. I may or may not be drugging myself to get some sleep. And it may or may not have been the best decision I've ever made.
Cravings: Water and lemon-flavored things. Not lemon Pledge though. We do not need more Lemon Pledge. And I really need to stop linking up to family guy episodes every 10 minutes, don't I?
Best moment this week: Finding out the nickname for the awesome shooting pains that I've been experiencing lately. Do you prefer "Lightening Vag" or "Lightening Crotch" better? Either way, sitting for too long then standing up causes the owwies. TMI?
Movement: All kinds. IN fact, Blink is no longer breech. He or she went and flipped on their own, wasn't that nice of him or her? Now I don't have to punish it as soon as it's born.
Gender: It's funny when John or I refer to the Blink as he or she and someone hears it and thinks they caught us. Like we've known this whole time and haven't told them. Um, I swear we don't know.
Labor Signs: A few little Braxton Hicks (or Toni Braxton Hicks, as we call em) fake-y contractions goin on.
What I miss: I tell ya what, in about 2 weeks, it's not gonna be work. The never-ending countdown to my actually leaving my job for good is finally on. We're talking 2 weeks people, can you imagine?
Weekly Wisdom: Request a table instead of a booth when you're out to dinner to avoid any potentially embarrassing situations. The kind where you can't fit in the booth. Or the kind where you fit in the booth but can't lean far enough over to eat properly. Stick with a table, you'll thank me.
What Stereotype I Embody: I was at my bff's 30th birthday party this weekend, and together, with the other pregnant chick there, we attacked the dessert table. That and the ginger ale. We went nuts.
What I Bought This Week: Thanks to some generous co-workers, we were finally able to go scoop up our Chicco Cortina Discovery car seat and stroller. We don't have to leave Blink at the hospital now! We can bring him or her home! Us: Making strides in parenting since July 2010.
What I Checked off my To-Do List: We attended childbirth class where the best part was laying on the mat, practicing breathing exercises. I breathed myself right into a couple short naps. Oh and it was awesome when the one bathroom broke. 10 pregnant chicks and one broken bathroom? Scary.
