I am thirty-six weeks along today. It seems like we were just finding out about this baby yesterday and now here we are at thirty-six weeks! Crazy how the time has flown.
We are so ready to meet this little guy; I can only hope these last few weeks fly by as well. Plus, as much as I’ve enjoyed being pregnant the last few months, I am ready for a few things to come to an end. Like …
My incessant clumsiness
Apparently this is common at this stage in pregnancy, but God, is it annoying. I can’t walk into a room without knocking something over, spilling something, dropping something (or all of the above.) My comb spends more time on my bathroom floor now than it does in my hands. I somehow managed to send Ricky’s cell phone flying across the room the other day when I picked up something off the table that was next to it. I didn’t even think I touched his phone, but off it went. And thank God for Tide sticks, because I ALWAYS drop whatever I’m eating—on me, the floor, the couch. I’m truly a mess these days.
The constant back and hip pain
Again, a common complaint, but not fun. I feel like an old woman. I guess carrying around another human being will do that to you.
I can truly cry over ANYTHING these days. You like my outfit? I may cry over the compliment. A commercial with a baby comes on? I’m probably going to cry. Ricky is a little late coming home from work? I’m crying because he obviously loves his work more than me and the baby. (He so doesn’t!) Enough, pregnancy hormones! Leave me alone and let me be sane again!
All the time with the peeing. Oy.
Despite all of the complaints, I am still enjoying this pregnancy. Our little guy is quite the wiggle worm and I love feeling him pushing and prodding at me every day. I think I may miss that a little once he’s here. But I’m sure he will provide me with new things to look forward to and love!
I’d list some of the things I’m looking forward to, but I have to pee.
