Around here…

  1. My belly is big.  Like crazy big.  My shirts don’t stay pulled down.  My lap literally rests on my lap.  I have to go to the bathroom all the time-but not really.  Even though I feel like my bladder is stretched to the extremes, barely anything comes trickling out when I do go…good times.
  2. I still have horrible heartburn.  From about 8pm on, I have a fire in my chest.  Thank goodness for Tums.
  3. My feet really started swelling this past weekend.  Huge.  Not pretty.  I would look at them and it was as if they were attached to a different body, like a man’s feet were fused to my legs.  Crazy.
  4. Good news though.  No more swelling this week.  Actually none.  That’s great!
  5. My back is not hurting too bad…unless I have to get up in the middle of the night and go to the bathroom (which I do, every single night).  Thankfully I haven’t fallen down yet.  That would be fun.
  6. Cooking is not on my list of things that I really want to do.  Like, NOT AT ALL.  My poor family.  Thankfully, they enjoy peanut butter and jelly.
  7. We are in the middle of having some work done at our house.  Well, Matthew is working super hard on our bathroom (he installed the shower last night!) but we also have some workers (neighbors) coming in and finishing our trim.  Due to the work (both bathroom and trim), our house is in a constant state of dust.  It’s big fun for this nesting gal.  Our house is never going to be clean again, I’m convinced of that.  Really, it’s never going to be clean.  Oh well.
  8. I finish up with my Harding work tomorrow!  Yea!!!!!  I actually still have final projects to grade, but that can be mostly done from the comfort of my couch.  But, I’m glad that I am wrapping up my work!
  9. We are scheduled to meet our baby in 2.5 weeks.  I wonder every day if he will come early (and part of me hopes he will although Matthew would have a heart attack if I voiced that)…how exciting to have that surprise!  HOWEVER, I was putting his little clothes away in his dresser the other day and putting his diapers in their spot and kind of had a mini-anxiety attack.  I am not familiar with changing baby boy diapers.  Give me a girl diaper to change, I can do it with my eyes closed.  A boy diaper…ahhhhhhhhhhhhh!  I might break him.  Hopefully we have a good nurse at the hospital.  But I do know that after a day of changing diapers, I will have it figured out.  I will have no choice.
  10. Elyn has been not so fun lately.  Pretty much ZERO fun!  She has thrown a fit every single day this week (possibly this month, I haven’t kept close enough track of it but I am confident that she has thrown a fit every day this week).  I feel like the worst mom in the entire world when we are in the midst of it and I am ready to “loan” her to someone else while it is happening.  But, amazingly, she loves me and tells me I’m the best and kisses me all over…and I think the same about her.  Sigh.  Motherhood-hard stuff.
  11. I can’t sleep.  Oh, I mean I WANT to sleep.  It sounds so appealing, so wonderful.  But, when it’s time to go to bed, I am not tired.  I roll over in the middle of the night and I am awake for 30 minutes afterwards.  I go to the bathroom and have trouble getting back to sleep.  I wake up earlier than I would like…I think all of this is just getting me ready for Rives.

Sorry I’ve been absent from blogging…things are slightly crazy around here lately.  I have pictures to share, and for the sake of my children and their memories, I hope to post those soon.

Bless your heart! I think you just need to get Rives here and a lot of these issues will go away...well, minus the diapering part. Believe me, I have thought the same thing about changing a girl's diaper, since I have all boys. Thankfully, it's all boys for me.

I had the same insomnia problem at the end of my pregnancy with Caleb, and my doctor told me to take a benadryl before I went to bed. It really helped! Just a suggestion. Blessings on your last two weeks.

Having both a boy and a girl, boys diapers are so much easier to change. Just make sure you tuck everything down or he will will pee right out of the top of the diaper. Happened just a few times to me and I couldn't figure it out, until I watched the pediatrician do that at his two week appointment. I felt so dumb, but then again, how would I know?
