You know that feeling after you go to a classy restaurant (read: Olive Garden–ha.), you eat too much and suddenly the food inside your tummy starts to move and kick and turn and decides your bladder seems like an awesome trampoline but at the same time decides to push its arm out so your tummy distorts like the movie Alien??? Ok wait…or is that just me? Um that last part happening all the time lately and I don’t even get to eat breadsticks and hate myself in the morning.
Ugh. 2 weeks. or less…or more…..
Rocky flipped! All on his own. So yeah for Rocky!!! We went in for an ultrasound on Monday and were praying that he had flipped so we wouldn’t have to schedule a version and/or a c-section. But we were ready for any news….and had worked our butts off this past weekend in case Rock decided to show up this week. But he flipped, must have realized his parents don’t allow for a lot of monkey business. So now we wait, which means I get to enjoy Alien-time with this one.
The sonographer told us he probably would be around 7.5 lbs….maybe 8 but more likely 7.5. It feels like it, sister. Wow. I know for sure I am waddling around now. With Lucas, I was totally worried about the waddling….but now, let the world see me waddle. I could care less. I actually do care but really, it takes a lot for me to walk straight these days so I don’t really have a choice.
All the while L and J have been sick. Both sound like they have been smoking for 30 years. So sleep has been infrequent these days, on top of getting ready to pass on my work duties (to who? TBD, awesome). I realized I am ready for this babe, even without all the waddling, bladder cramping and overall attractiveness….but the fact that I woke right up at 3am and was actually not super tired and felt ready to start the day. Weird. L was up then too, which made for an interesting conversation.
” You ‘k, mom?, you ‘k??
” Yes, Luca, I’m ok”
Ok mom, lets go.”
“go where, Luca, its 3am”
” Nana house?”
” don’t tempt me Luca”
–bending over due to Rocky waking up and my bladder and/or kidneys becoming moving parts in my body
‘you ‘k mom?’ you ‘k??”
If he wasn’t so stinkin’ cute…..
Anyway, so we wait for Rocky…which by the way, is still nameless. I threw out a name option to Mom yesterday and she gave me the nonverbal sign AS WELL AS the verbal intonation in her voice of displeasure. Nana might just call Rocky rocky forever. Oh well…..Which reminds me….my co-worker pointed out how I still refer to L as ‘the baby’. She thinks its so funny when I do that. Why?
B/c he’s 2?
b/c he’s not a baby?
b/c I have prego brain and you are lucky I put my pants on the right way in the morning?
Oh well, I guess I will work on that too. Perhaps Spock is a good name…due to the fact I don’t remember any Alien character names right now.
My poor kiddos. 🙂
