Forgive me for being a little pre-occupied -- but in just 11 days, Sprout will be considered 'full term'. Woah. That's a heavy thought. And I have only 14 work days left until my Mat leave. There is stuff going on at work right now that I won't even be there for. Amazing. I had some training yesterday for a program that will be implemented the week after I leave.
I had a full-on meltdown this week. Monday was a very bad day for me . . . I was feeling fat, and swollen, and tired of being pregnant - and people were being kind of nasty about it. I was feeling mighty low. Then I got into a bit of a misunderstanding with a much beloved friend, and I felt even lower. Then Mr. Wonderful asked what was wrong, and I told him, and he kind of had the wrong response, and I cried and cried. It was terrible! And probably very much hormone driven - but man, I was miserable! Fortunately, Mr. Wonderful realized his response was not what I was looking for, and he corrected it -- but still, it took me almost all of Tuesday to get over Monday.
Tuesday I only had a half day at work due to an OB appointment - which I now have weekly (what a colossal waste of time) . . but something kind of awesome happened. Know how Sprout has never been much of a mover? Well, it seems she's changed her mind. As of Tuesday, Sprout is a confirmed squirmer. She wiggles almost constantly - which is making me kind of fine with still being pregnant again. Because now it's not like I just have a giant belly. Now I have a giant belly that wiggles and thumps. And that's just entertaining sometimes!
Of course, I now have to deal with some wicked bad edema in my feet and ankles, and my hands are going numb which drastically slows my knitting, but what can you do? It's last trimester pregnancy and the end, she is in sight!
I'm considering casting on for childhood, even though I really should buckle down and finish my eyelet chemise . . . The seed st jacket is all but done - just needs buttons. And I plan on getting all my required button shopping done next Tuesday . . . which I have off! Due to another OB appointment.
I really feel like the finish line is approaching on this whole pregnancy business, and I look forward to my body being single occupancy again - Now I just have to hope that Sprout is a girl AND arrives in a timely fashion.
