Week 36 Update


Ah, yes. 36 weeks.  I’m going to the doctor every week now.  Cheese has become the base of my food pyramid, which is a beautiful thing.  The end is in sight!

  • I still haven’t packed a hospital bag, but I finally sorted out the sourcing of some starter nursing tanks and bras, granny panties, pads, Tucks pads, and dermoplast.  GOD BEING PREGNANT IS SO DIGNIFYING SOMETIMES.  That being said, I felt a real bond with the pregnant pharmacy tech at CVS when I asked her where I could find said Tucks pads.  They were totally sold out, so I got all of the embarrassment and none of the thrill of the actual purchase.
  • Call for help: What are your favorite nursing tanks/nursing bras?
  • Critter is head down!  I am negative for Group B Strep!
  • The Glider arrived two weeks ago and it is magnificent.  It was definitely worth the $$$ we threw at it.  I’ll be sure to share a snap once the nursery is complete.
  • Last weekend, Marcus and I switched roles and HE nested.  I sat in the glider and watched.  We He assembled two strollers, a rock n’ play and a pack n’ play.  Critter will now be portable.
  • We just ordered our THIRD exersaucer (or as Sarah refers to it, “Circle of Neglect”) from Target.  Each time it gets delivered, we receive a battered package from Target with pieces that are mangled, which Marcus then has to return.  It has become his arch nemesis.
  • My entire sartorial world has been condensed into leggings-shirt-waterfall cardigan-scarf.  Sometimes I wear different earrings, just to change it up a bit.  I can still wriggle into my jeggings, but what’s the point anymore?
  • I don’t even want to say it out loud, because I am afraid I will curse myself, but I think that my eczema may have finally disappeared for good.  Praise.  That was a three month ordeal I am not particularly eager to repeat.
