After my last entry, I had a couple of Bad Days. When I’m not pregnant and wake up not feeling well, I assume I’m getting sick or ate something and will feel better either imminently, or worst case, in a week or so if I’m sick. When pregnant, I have no idea why I’m feeling lousy or when I’ll feel better. This time, it was a couple days, and now I’m just back to feeling large, awkward, and moderately uncomfortable, but not bad. I’m still mostly able to sleep, with maybe one wake-up a night, which is nice. By the end of my last pregnancy, I was up every hour to use the bathroom unless I took Unisom, so I’m kind of wondering if that’s coming this time, or what.
My parents will be getting here a week from yesterday, which will be great, as we’ll no longer have to worry about childcare if I go into labor. Hopefully we won’t all want to kill each other by the time they go home. If the baby doesn’t come until 40 weeks, it’s going to be a LONG visit. She wouldn’t hang around that long, would she? My last two surprised me. I did not expect in any way that my first would get here early, and yet she did. Perhaps this one will surprise me in the other direction!
In other news, I’m entertaining myself by boots shopping. I ordered a couple pairs by Sam Edelman. (At least one pair will go back.)
Thoughts? I’m looking for footwear to go with skinny jeans that will also keep my feet warm. (My only pair of maternity pants also happen to be skinny black jeans, so they will work prior to baby getting here. The in-between post-baby nothing fits phase will be annoying, but in past, I’ve just bought stuff for cheap in larger sizes off eBay, and that’s worked out pretty well.)
In other news, I’m trying to decide whether to buy a cheaper desk off Wayfair for L, or sale-watch one on Pottery Barn, which would still be a bit more pricey. Any desk recommendations?
I’m not getting any smaller, folks:
