I’m back from my 38-week appointment which somehow morphed from an average 45-minute trip to a 4-hour jaunt to Maternal Diagnostics at my hospital. Phew! My physician noticed my uterine measurements were a little behind schedule for my due date (aha! – that might explain all of the “your belly is too small to be [...]
Well, you would think I would be a posting fool due to my maternity leave and wicked organizational skills. Sorry, Charlies. I have a new love in my life, and it’s called…wait, what’s it called…oh yeah…Mystery Case Files: Huntsville. No more maternity leave boredom for me because I am solving crimes, yo. I came upon [...]
Well, well. Hello there. Hmph. What to do, what to do, what to do. It’s 8:08 on Monday morning and I already don’t know what to do with myself. It’s really peculiar not having to work. Even though my job is based from home, I still have to put on a suit (which lately has [...]
It’s official – I weigh more than my husband. Additionally, I am wearing his shorts considering they are the only piece of clothing in this god-forsaken house that fit me. On a happier note, I am 50% effaced and a “fingertip” dilated. Not much, I know…but it’s a hell of a lot better than last [...]
Have you seen Tony Pierce’s “Rules for Blogging”?
I had my first cervical exam this morning and… DUN DUN DUUUNNNNN nothing has happened. My cervix is tightly closed- it looks like Whoorlito still has some cooking to do. I was talking to one of my favorite nurses today in an office I call on for work, and I asked her to guess what [...]
Or be a part of my non-scientific, double-blind, placebo-controlled, government-funded study! Um, it’s really none of those things. But did you see how well that flowed from my fingers and translated on the written page? Seven years of pharmaceutical sales has taught me something, by God. Mommies, tell me how many days +/- you delivered [...]
One of the beautiful things about being 36 weeks pregnant is while your husband slaves away in the nursery, you can sit on your ass and make up new hybrid cartoon characters with the baby’s belongings. Introducing the spawn of Marvin the Martian.
I just realized my previous entry is about to disappear off my page, leaving nothing but blank space on my blog. That would accurately describe what’s going on in my brain right now…a whole lot of nothing. You would think Whoorlito’s arrival in a month would send my brain into a flurry of activity. Alas, [...]
Why do questions from strangers about your pregnancy follow the exact same pattern 85% of the time? The Holy Trilogy of Pregnancy-Related Questions: 1) When are you due? 2) Is it a boy or a girl? 3) Have you picked a name? These questions are usually followed with a couple of random tidbits about their [...]
As you may have noticed, my
I do recall some interest in these…well, ask and you shall receive. You can now buy these cuties- just click on the “Cutest Booties Ever” link on my sidebar and enjoy!
I’ve been very good about not bombarding you with all of the darling baby things I am receiving, but I had to show you these hand-knit boots a family friend made for little whoorlito. They are currently in Oklahoma with 95% of my other baby gifts, but my dad sent me a photo today. Seriously, [...]
Bose headphones in order to watch the television in the bedroom. If you need me during the next 2 months, I’ll be the big-bellied girl in the bedroom with the airport tarmac gear on.
I’m hot. And tired. And annoyed. I contemplated not writing this until my body temperature cooled off a little, but I have now realized my body temperature is NEVER going to cool down until I have this baby. Which really aggravates me to no end. I’m the cold-natured girl! I’ve never had this problem before…the [...]
