38 weeks

i'm pretty much a pro when it comes to transitions as it seems like i've been in transition from one big life change to another for nigh on forever now. so i'm hopeful that this next transition of becoming a parent, which is sure to be the biggest yet, will come natural. or something like that.

until then, i'm soaking up as much alone-to-an-extent-except-no-not-really-at-all (baby hiccups are special reminders) time as possible. which is to say, i'm enjoying these last few weeks of pregnancy, even though my "not very big" bump feels like it's taking over the world and there are about a million and one things left on my to-do list.

but, the weather has been pretty spectacular lately, and oh golly, my mood is good :)

also, love this picture loverboy took of my 38-week belly:

a baby is in there!

isn't it amazing that there's a baby in there? that's all i have to say really. and also, stay in there for another 3 weeks baby because we still need to set up our bassinet and wash some clothes and install a car seat and also i want my braces off first...but seriously, i can't believe a baby might really be here in a few weeks! this is blowing my mind daily.



fun third trimester facts:

1. babies can kick like a ninja in there.
2. i have no idea where my innards are. somewhere behind my spine, i'm guessing.
3. skin really can stretch out the size of a basketball.
4. pregnancy is easier in third trimester because you can just about eat like a normal person without insane indigestion/nausea and you now look really pregnant and not just fatter than normal. and also, the waiting is almost over.
5. pregnancy is harder in third trimester because you just try sleeping on a basketball and you'll know what i mean and also because all your joints feel like they're about to give. any. second. now.
6. i'm still as grumpy as i was in first trimester, but probably—hopefully—better than second.
7. my dairy intolerance has disappeared...so i should probably have as many shakes as possible. for the baby.
8. it's super fun to buy things for a baby, even when it's bottles and sun visors. sometimes i forget its for the baby and not me. i mean, we're kind of the same person right now.
9. pants are not fun. neither are work clothes.
10. husbands are pretty awesome and deserve some praise. especially when they give you nightly back massages.
