That's right, I'm almost 29 weeks. Last time I went to the midwife she gave me a packet of papers for birthing options, hospital tours, and parking passes for the big day. It kinda freaked me out--it's not that time yet!
Things around here are good, but hectic. Brendan has had a few interviews and has another major one coming up on Monday. He's off to Milwaukee again for a second interview for a job he really wants, and they are hiring like right now so if he were to get it, what does that mean?? Not only are the holidays coming up but so is a brand new baby. Makes moving a little tough, you know?
Otis has been moving around like crazy, doing flips and rolls and making my belly look quite crazy. Brendan is so funny, he just does not get into the pregnancy thing at all. I could sit and stare at my moving belly for hours, while he touches it once, feels a move, and immediately grabs his hand back. I laughed at him and said what's the big deal? He said he knows in his head it's okay but he feels like he's going to hurt the baby or something. By putting a hand on my belly. If he saw how Ingrid treats me he wouldn't be so worried...She is constantly climbing on me and elbowing me in the belly, or hitting me or poking her finger as far as it will go (not far) into my belly button.
Yesterday we got some new pjs for Ingrid at the consignment store--they have "Big Sister" on the shirt, she was SO excited to put them on as soon as we got home. She seems excited to be a big sister but who knows what that means in her tiny noggin!! Hopefully she'll be okay when Otis gets here but that's another thing to think about--she's going to have a new brother and move to a new house right on top of each other...Two major things at once, hard enough for adults, much harder for kids. Nothing I can do about it now, though, is there?
So that's that, more of the same. Thinking about jobs, moving, babies, being sick, stressed, and trying to enjoy life as usual while we are in this limbo...
