So, for whatever reason, I erased my first entry about this pregnancy. Just straight up deleted it. Awesome! Since my grand total prior to today came to TWO WHOLE ENTRIES, I am feeling great about deleting 50% of my content. Rad. Poor baby.
Ok, so, yes, I slack. In my defense, Movable Type was not cooperating. All that is in order now. Hallelujah.
And then, second, there is this pesky grad school business keepin' me busy. And the three-almost-four-year-old of fantasticness who eats up all of my free time. We have been trying to get him adjusted to the fact that I won't be able to spend every waking second with him when the baby gets here. That will be an experience.
So anyhow, 34 weeks now. I am starting to feel whale-ish in appearance, which is about when I remember this feeling sinking in last time around. Yesterday, at the dentist's office, one of the dental hygienist's saw me at the front desk and said, "Oh, wow, you are so unbelievably cute! When are you due?" I honestly could not believe she was talking to me, and I looked around for someone else who might be cuter and less pregnant than me. Cute? Cute? You don't call a girl who is almost 6' and is carrying around a beach ball in her abdomen cute! Don't get me wrong, I loved it... but geez, not the adjective I feel at all resembles my being at the moment. I just feel... big.
Currently, life is very much on standby. I end my first year of grad school in less than three weeks (YIPEEEE!!!!), and I just need to make it across the finish line at this point. Summer is finally here in Portland, which makes working very difficult. Combine that with the fact that I don't really want to be upright past 9 pm, and the fact that Teo does not want to sit around patiently while I work, and you have a recipe for procrastination. I will get there, though. Everything will get done. I will get there. It will get done. I will get there.
I have a ton of things I want to do before the baby arrives, but of course all of those things will have to happen after school gets out. So wish me luck for the next few weeks... hopefully I'll have time to update more (and better) once my schoolwork is all taken care of and handed in to the appropriate professors. June 9 is the magic day.
