Ok, so technically, it’s not Tuesday here yet, but since Mr. I-can-fall-asleep-and-start-snoring-within-30-seconds-of-getting-in-bed has done just that, I figured it was as good a time as ever.
To save my sanity and not go totally berserk on him for something over which he has no control, I’ve decided to relegate myself to the basement couch for the night. The upside is that it’s cooler downstairs than it is upstairs (yay?).
I’m still looking for birth stories to share on my Many Faces of Chilbirth page. A big thank you to those of you who have already linked or sent a story. If anyone else is interested, please check out this page for all of the details.
My dental clinic called today to schedule my yearly exam. They wanted to see me on August 20th. I told them that I was very pregnant and that later would be better. I ended up taking an appointment on October 8th.
To help with the natural birth I’m aiming for, my partner has been practicing some massage techniques. I think that given my couch predicament, he’ll be doing some more practicing tomorrow ;).
This coming weekend, my partner is participating in a miniature train exhibition. Among AFOL LEGO builders like himself, there will be a whole bunch of other exhibits for trains enthusiasts. I’ll be going along with Charles so that he can get his fill of trains (and, at the same time, I’ll be there to support my partner in one of his passions – LEGO MOCing).
Everyone around me is betting that Peanut is going to come early. I think that given that both myself and the dada are stubborn as heck, the little peanut will decide to extend his/her stay just to contradict everyone. My thoughts: s/he’ll come out when ready.
It was finally warm enough yesterday to warrant going in our pool! Woohoo! I think I’ve only been in it about 5 or 6 times since the start of summer so far.
Our few pool visits were enough to get Charles accustomed to the water once again though so I expect that the transition to the swimming lessons we’ll be continuing with him in September will be rather smooth.
Speaking of the little guy, he’s definitely entering the wonderful world of the teenaged-toddler. It’s both a pleasure and a pain in the butt to see him asserting himself.
