Cranky and fat

I am so cranky and fat. That's why I haven't been blogging. No one wants to hear me bitch. Especially Ben. Who can just go relax in his own damn bedroom if my huge body and giant body pillow ARE TAKING UP TOO MUCH ROOM. He can't sleep because of all my tossing and turning, and neither can I.

Did I mention how bad my back hurts? Oh, but only when I stand or sit. So I have been lounging a lot.

The kids are driving me NUTS. Oddly the only thing I have patience for is playing board games, so we have been enjoying lots of Zingo, Trouble, and my personal favorite Headbandz. I am so crabby that I don't even think they're cute anymore.

Even when they ARE

My nurse practitioner told me today that I will likely have the baby in the next 3 weeks, since H and J were both 37 and 38 week babies. She thinks I am an early ovulator. I hope she's right, but I have a sneaking suspicion that this guy is going to be my 42-weeker. Think how crabby I'll be by THEN. Really, I'd just love to have him by September 1, so he can go to kindergarten when he turns 5.

SO crabby. Going to eat soft garlic cheddar cheese and TJ's everything crackers and take my awesome breath to bed.

    I never had a summer pregnancy, which would be tough in this weather but at least you'll have something to show for the crabbiness..we can hardly wait to hear about the new one (and the old ones too) Bomma

  2. I recognize that Koury's menu. :)

    You should take to your bed like the queens of old and get yourself some ladies in waiting. If none are available, enslave H and J!

  3. Ditto the taking to bed. This part is such a slog. I hope for three weeks, not five! And ditto the pre-Sept 1 birthdate. We've lost out on that three times.

  4. Evan loathes my body pillow. I have not needed it yet, but it sits in our room taunting him. He has bitched and moaned with the other two pregnancies about how I use the whole bed. He dreads when I will actually need it to, you know, SUPPORT MY STOMACH AND HIPS THAT CAUSE ME GREAT PAIN WHILST SLEEPING.

    The clothes you picked out are super cute. If this one ends up being another girl, I intend to pull out all the girls' old clothes and make her wear them home from the hospital too. :)

  5. Ugh!! I have days when I don't think Ethan is cute, even though he is, and I'm not even pregnant. So I totally get that. LOL

    I'm sure if Becca, Amy & I were closer, we'd gladly be your ladies in waiting. Hope the next few weeks aren't too uncomfortable!
