[Not time for mine yet : ) ]
I started watching A Baby Story when I was about 15 with my mom and sister. In the summers when school was out, we’d have marathons of baby and wedding story shows. I remember my chest welling with emotion every single time a baby was born. I hoped that some day I would be able to give birth too. As I grew up, I had much less time for TV and haven’t really had that much interest in the show – until recently! I thought: “I should record a few episodes!”
With lunch today, I watched an episode and instead of a small swell of emotion I found myself with hands on belly sobbing when their baby came out! I have pondered about this month my whole life and cannot believe that it’s here and that one way or another, we will be bringing a baby into the world too [knock on wood]. It still doesn’t feel real yet. In some ways, I can already barely remember being pregnant even though I still am. It’s just gone by so, so fast.
I went to Pump this morning for some lifting. I’m not sure when my last Pump class will be, but I’m able enough to do the free weights and modify all planks to hands-and-knees, go out and use the machine during chest and squat with just my body weight. Still glad to be keeping the muscles in shape!
Lunch today was a scrambled egg wrap with spinach and some of the Caromont Farm herby goat cheese. So much delicious flavor!
On the side..
Corn chips + a peach!
Plus a refreshing lemonade-spiked water
Holy moly, I left the TV on in the background and just heard the woman on the next Baby Story episode is 36 weeks and in labor! I’m 36+4 today!
And I guess one final baby thought – I promise to update you all when I go into labor. Several people emailed me yesterday when I went missing : ) Unless there is an emergency and we literally can’t get to a computer or my phone, I’ll put up some kind of “it’s time” post.
