While I still feel good, I think I’m past the blissful part of my pregnancy. I still have a month left before I hit the third trimester, but I feel like I’m already there! Two weeks ago I was telling Dennis I wanted to stay pregnant forever as long as I could stay the size I was. But I guess Joshua wasn’t finished growing because my bump is officially larger than my butt now, which is no small feat. I felt pretty cute with a smaller, manageable bump, but now I just feel huge.
This week I looked down at my feet and didn’t recognize them. They are like little fat lumps with fat little toes at the end. Whose feet are these? And my ankles make me sad. I get a crease in my ankle if I stand straight/flex my feet. Isn’t it too early for the cankles to be coming on? For realz!
Also, look at the Crocs I’ve been forced to wear. Oh so stylish and totally flattering to my stumpy legs. OK, I don’t mind Crocs that much, but this style is kind of ten years ago…and this actual pair is kind of that old. But they’re all I have and since my cute sandals offer no cushion or support, I had to switch to the old Crocs because of pain in my left heel. I don’t know what is going on but, but if I don’t wear Crocs or some other shoes with support, it really hurts. So Crocs it is. Woe is me. ;)
Update: some asked about my blood pressure as apparently it rises when you start bloating out. I went to the doctor today and it’s still doing good at 102/62.
Other than my swollen, painful, cankly, Croc-covered feet, I’m doing good. I can even reach my toes still…
hehe. OK, here I am actually touching them. I might be bending my legs a little. This belly is hard to get around I tell ya.
In other news, we finally settled on a nursery theme (Dr. Seuss/Cat in the Hat) and got a baby registry going at Target (some have asked for the link, so here it is for your viewing pleasure). Since we’ve already started buying/been given quite a bit, when we got there I was like, “we only need a few things–this registry is going to be pathetic.” Um, yeah. I didn’t realize how much we didn’t have and still needed/wanted until we were immersed in baby stuff. Needless to say, our registry is pretty substantial. How does adding one small human into your life require so much extra stuff?
As for our progress on converting the office into a nursery, we have consolidated to one desk and moved it to the living room, so the room is half empty now. We just bought a hutch today to put in another corner of the living room to store things that are spilling over from the kitchen now that I don’t have my extra closet for baking supplies. Making progress, though it still looks like Taz has whirled through our house several hundred times. Lots of organizing, cleaning, and straightening left to be done. We have a deadline of Labor Day weekend to have it all cleaned up because Momma Donna, her sister, and our friend Stephanie are coming over to paint the nursery! So excited! (A few people have asked about Momma Donna. If you missed my introduction, you can click her name to find out who she is-she’s at the end of that post.)
Speaking of Momma Donna, we had her dog, Doc, over this weekend. If you didn’t catch it before, him and Jessie are best friends and they love having sleep overs. Here’s Doc giving me some love.
Dogs never judge. :)
