Being pregnant, there are some things you just can't do. And then there is the whole long list of things where it just isn't worth it. Today I am missing some specific things.
*Laying on my stomach or back.
*Laying on my right side for more than 20 minutes.
*Sleeping with just one pillow.
*Being able to lay next to my husband in our King size bed.
(I am not that big it just takes a lot of energy to scoot out of bed so I just sleep on the edge.)
*Being able to snuggle with my kids on the couch.
*Having a lap.
*FOOD! With the other pregnancies, I could have given you a list of specific foods--bacon, orange juice, tomato anything, onions--that just gave me heartburn. But this time, I miss yogurt. Something about the consistency, I just can't do it.
*Shoes that tie.
*Shoes period. I am down to two pairs of flip flops and it's snowing! (It was when I wrote this.)
*Snuggly blankets. I got the greatest blanket for Christmas and so want to use it!
*My ankles. I used to have them--bony ones even.
*Rolling over in my sleep. Now it's a whole production to get this body onto the other side.
*And I really miss pants. Skirts are just easier right now.
*Bending over. ET asked for help tying his shoes yesterday and it was awkward to say the least.
But when I went to the doctor yesterday, I was 60% effaced and 1 cm dialated. Which most likely means nothing! But at the very least I only have 4 weeks to go. With hubby's finals, ET's karate tournament, and everything else, I am really shooting for May 3rd so my husband's head doesn't explode. You should have seen his face when I told him my water broke on April Fools.
