Almost there?

in Mom Thoughts, Oh Baby!

Today, it is 86 degrees inside my house and out–we don’t have air conditioning. I feel like my body temp is at least 15 degrees hotter than that.

Today, like every day the last week, I can’t even spend too much time on the computer because sitting in the computer chair hurts more than anything else I do.

Tomorrow is my “due date”, though I’m convinced that the little man is going to be at least a few days late, if not more.

I am hot, I am huge, I am uncomfortable in just about every manner I can imagine.

And yet, it’s not so bad. I’ve made my way to the pool the last few days to both cool off and alleviate some of the pressure of being so pregnant. I’ve got almost everything taken care of that I can take care of so that I can just sit when I’m in the house (preferably with 3 different fans on me and multiple ice packs helping to cool me off). I’ve been able to nap intermittently throughout the day, when I’m not too hot. And while I’m nervous as hell about the eventual labor and delivery that await me, I’m not stressing about it–which if you know me in real life, you know is an absolute miracle.

I don’t know who this somewhat zen person is who has taken over my (hot, swollen, uncomfortable) body, but frankly I’m kind of glad she’s here. There’s a lot going on, and if I were being my “normal” self, I’m pretty sure I’d be a raving lunatic right now.

Of course, we’ll see what happens when I go into labor!

P.S. Thank you all so much for the birthday wishes! It was a great birthday, and I loved hearing from you guys!
