Updates and Currentlys

Seeing the doctor once a week now. This week's quote was "Are you waddling? This kid's head is prettttttty low". So that's where we're at. 36 weeks.

Wondering how in the world did we get here already?! But also...

Feeling anxious and ready. Most days I can add "uncomfortable", "out of breath", and "over-emotional" to the list.

Watching Call the Midwife...because what else would an extremely pregnant woman who has less emotional control than an overtired toddler watch?! I've watched a few episodes of Billy on the Street too. If you're not familiar, it's Billy Eichner (who plays Craig toward the end of Parks and Rec) randomly going up to people on the streets of NYC asking pop culture questions and playing outrageous games. I'm still on the fence as to whether or not I think it's funny or just exhausting to watch. 

Listening to NeedtoBreathe

Eating all the cereal. Specifically Rice Crispies with a banana sliced up in it.

Anticipating getting the last few things set up in the baby room. Maybe then I will finally feel ready. As ready as one can feel, I guess.

Wishing that we had a recliner that I could sleep in. I just can't get comfortable in our bed these days. I thought last week when Justin was out of town that I would sleep better having the whole bed to myself. But it turns out that finding yourself in the middle of a bed that your awkward belly won't let you roll out of is not ideal.

Wearing anything that covers The Belly. Leggings as often as possible, and a rotation of dress pants that I don't have to keep hiking up. 

Reading a book on baby-led weaning. Also, I have The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah sitting on my nightstand but I haven't picked it up yet. 

Loving this card that we got at a baby shower this weekend. Justin's amazing faculty threw us a shower and one of his coworkers' daughters included this adorable card.  
The note on the back says:
"I hope you have a very good baby shower. This card is from *her name*. We can't wait to meet your new baby and see your new baby! And can you tell us your baby's name too? And your boy baby can be friends with our girl baby named *girl's name*. I bet we'll love your baby just like we love our baby. May Jesus be with you and your baby. From, *name* (five years old)"


  1. I love Needtobreathe! Hard Love is my jam.

    I also LOVED The Nightingale! Definitely a must read.
