Seriously Lame

Really, that summarizes my blog and my inability to post on a regular basis. I could blame it on the fact that I'm still in the stupid "interim" manager position that was only supposed to take up 40% of my time but is now taking up 140% of my time. And, I could also blame it on baby-nesting that I've been doing every freakin' weekend. But, really, it all comes down to my laziness.

I am now 32 weeks! I officially have only 8 more weeks to go and our little baby is wreaking havoc on my body. Things that have happened between my last post and now:
  • I have gained 20+ pounds and still gaining. By the end of the day, I feel so heavy...everything is bloated. My belly, my feet, my face (OMG, let's not talk about how chubby my cheeks are), my fingers, my ass. Everything has a plumpness to it that I never thought imaginable.
  • GAS! I believe I am now the main contributor to greenhouse gases. I FART EVERYWHERE! At work, at home, in the bathroom, when I sleep, when I'm awake, while I'm eating...You get the picture.
  • Our little eggy is a major squirmer. He moves constantly and sometimes keeps me awake at night, which doesn't help my sleep situation (this deserves a bullet point of its own).
  • Sleep...Maybe this is nature's way of preparing you for those long sleepless nights, but I haven't had a night of uninterrupted sleep in a very long time. Bathroom breaks and hip pain have made it difficult to do more than 2-3 hours at a time.
Most importantly, though, I think the most amazing thing that has happened is just the transformation, mentally and physically. I can feel our eggy getting stronger and bigger and mentally, I'm so ready for him to arrive in our lives. I can't wait to see his little face and touch his little hands. Two months and counting!!
