To feel human, and to give my brain a break from grading research papers, I must write something else. How about a list?
FIVE THINGS I’LL MISS ABOUT BEING PREGNANT
#5 Wait, five? Let’s move on to four.
#4 Ummmmm. Perhaps three will come to me.
#3 Prince Charming’s aversion to feeling the baby move because “I don’t want to hurt him.” Such a strong man.
#2 Cuties 1 and 2 kissing baby brother and snuggling so they can feel him move around.
#1 The magical feeling of baby swimming around inside me. Yes. This I will miss.
#5 Being asked (for the 80th time) if I am having twins. This has happened with all three pregnancies.
#4 Being asked if I’m SURE I’m not having twins.
#3 Sciatic nerve pain
#2 SWP (sleeping while pregnant)
#1 Stepping on the scale at the doctor’s office. It is ridiculous that they mess with the calibration every time I’m there.
I am 2 cm dilated as of yesterday. Keep it coming, Cutie #3! Can’t wait to meet you!
