Blog? What blog?

Filed under: Uncategorized — K @ 9:26 am

I am feeling decidedly lazy, lately.  If you check out my pregnancy ticker, you probably understand why.  And if you don’t, you’ve probably never been pregnant….  I don’t know what it is about “third babies”, but many of my 3-time mommy friends agree that this pregnancy is just harder than the first two.  I also have a dear friend who is an RN and a doula, who pointed out to me that, well, I’m 30 now, and this isn’t the same as going through a pregnancy at 25!  She sure wasn’t saying I was old, but I am old enough now that age is a factor in my physical well-being.

In Baby News, the non-medical version is that the baby is measuring big, but I’m measuring small, meaning that I’ve got the fun of experiencing 9th month discomfort, but ever since the 6th month.  Umm, ouch.  Baby is active as can be, and this means that I don’t sleep a whole lot, or very deeply, so I’m just sort of ready to get him out, at this point.  He still has some cooking to do, though, so unless he decides to come out early (not expected — my babies like to cook until they are well-done), I am scheduled for a c-section on Mar. 23rd (exactly 4 weeks from this moment, I should be cuddling a really-brand-new human!)

We took advantage of that belly the other day with a fun art project for the kids.   I’ll spare you the in-progress pictures, but I wore an interesting ensemble made of garbage bags that left just my belly exposed, and let the kids paint my belly to their hearts’ content.  When they were done, we smooshed a piece of art paper across my belly from side-to-side, and admired our artistic creation (yes, the white dot in the middle is from my belly button — the pop-out timer says there is plenty more cooking required….)
