I don’t blog much these days, and for one simple reason, really: one isn’t able to muster much energy for non-baby related things in late pregnancy! What energy I have goes toward maintaining home and home school as much as possible, and preparing for the little one to come. I’m at the Weekly Visit To the OB stage, which is always a bit annoying to me. BUT, baby is doing well, and my midwife seems satisfied with my health, except that I’ve quit gaining weight. I, personally, am okay with that. My diet right now relies heavily on raw fruits and veggies, and I make an effort to keep plenty of good fats and proteins on my plate. I wish apples, carrots, and heads of lettuce were more filling!
I only have one last thing to do to get ready, and that is to adjust the car seats and install the baby’s. Easy-peasy, right? And maybe pack a hospital bag. But there’s plenty of time for that once the contractions start. No sense getting ahead of myself.
I told the midwife the other day that I was looking forward to an early delivery. “Oh,” she wondered, “how early do you usually go?”
“Actually,” I clarified, “I’ve never been early. Mostly late.” But a girl has got to have something to hope for!
