36 weeks

13 Feb

Timothy turned two. When did all the time go? Two already!

At the same time, I think of how small and dependent and uncivilized he still is – and I think it will take full two years to get to this point with baby #2… it’s a long road, what can I say.

On the positive side, it looks like I finally found peace with the imminent plunge back into milk-soaked bras, night wakings and house arrest. Next Thursday is my last day at work and I am happy about it. Which means I am ready to exit the work force for now and become a full-time mom again (although Timothy will continue in daycare).

This weekend we will move around some furniture and install the infant carseat into my car.

I did most of the baby laundry this past week. While my stuff was making rounds through my friends’ houses, the baby stuff multiplied, it seems. The amount of clothes for 0-3 months is baffling! I probably have two dozens of sleepers alone. And then there are some onesies and pants and whatnot…

I should pack that l&d bag. I bought everything, I washed everything – I just need to pack!

2.5 weeks to go.

Ouch. Baby’s kicking!

We watched Timothy interact with a 4-month old this past weekend. It bodes well! At least for the first little while. Timothy watched the baby with such adoration, he stroked it and kissed it, he made faces to make baby laugh. He wasn’t jealous when I held the baby – on the opposite, he joined in with me singing to the baby! So adorable πŸ™‚

Oh, I’m sure once our new baby starts crawling and grabbing Timothy’s toys, the dynamic will change. Still – I’ll take the short term peace over jealous tantrums with pleasure!

I am seeing my gyno tomorrow morning.

Heartburn, after being absent for about 10 days is back with vengeance.

If Timothy wakes me up in the middle of the night, I am having really hard time falling back to sleep. Sometimes it takes a full hour.

Overall, the sleepiness and tiredness have disappeared. I am once again ok to go to bed after 11 and get up at 7 am.

Belly is very heavy, walking is extremely uncomfortable, I am waddling like an overweight penguin, although my weight gain is low. Baby often resides on my bladder which makes walking very uncomfortable.

Nipples are still itchy, despite the lanolin cream.

Feet started to swollen, my shoes get tight around noon.

Linea negra didn’t appear this time around.

And I think that’s it for now…

    These last few weeks feel like they’re taking forever!
    I’ve got our baby clothes in the washer now; we have a half packed bag until they’re dry and I can put them in;) xxx

    I am starting to feel that it’s right the corner. Perhaps because I am in no particular rush πŸ™‚

    The bag is mostly packed now. I have a few more things to throw in, but all the essentials are there!

    Hard to believe baby is almost here.
