23 week ruminations…..

This week’s list:

Things that are in:

Hope.  23 weeks and 2 days today.  5 days until viability.

Childhood cereals: Fruit Loops, Frosted Flakes, Captain Crunch…..

Kicks:My child is getting stronger in there. And he likes to prove it to me late at night when I’m supposed to be sleeping.  He’s even giving me a preview right now as I type this.

People rubbing my belly: OK, this one is getting on my nerves.  See belly.  Don’t touch.  Geez!

Cleaning: My house is a travesty. And obviously, I can’t trust C-Dub to clean.  And speaking of which, why do husbands have the nerve to ask,

 “Why are you doing all of that? you should be sitting down!”

  Because moron, if I left it up to you, I would be afraid to sit on my own toilet.


Things that are out:

Sleep.  Really.

Sex. I give up.  I won’t do it unless I get the sad sad puppy dog eyes.  And I apologize to any and everyone who I have ever criticized for not giving up the booty during pregnancy. It’s just too awkward and  I get tired too quickly.  I mean really, there are only a few positions that work anymore, and they all involve me doing most of the work!

Spending money.  Ummm, there is a baby coming in 3 months who will need lots of expensive gadgets.

Looking at the scale.  Really, self explanatory there right?

Things I am working on:

Fear:  I’ve almost got you conquered.  You will be vanquished soon.

The nursery: a work in progress.

Exercise: I have a theory that this will help the swelling, give me more energy, slow the weight gain and help me to sleep better. But I need to actually exercise to test that right?????



  1. I can sooo totally relate. I am making my hubby clean the bathrooms though. I’m not supposed to be breathing the fumes. I’m not having the trouble with sex. Yet. And, no they don’t think before they speak. I can’t say a lot, as I’m the queen of the Volcano Mouth species. I hope you feel better soon! Nursery, what’s that? I can’t even nail mine down long enough to pick out a name.

  2. Oh yeah, the cleaning monster has set in. I’m even forcing DH to clean out his closet!

  3. LOL 🙂

  4. HA HA HA…You go girl!!! I ask hubby every other day to clean the toilet and once a week for the rest of the bathroom…..

  5. Don’t hold out any hopes for that bathroom sweetie By the time I was too unwieldy to clean the bathroom I asked hubby to do it, which he did…once. My bathtub was growing legs by the time I gave birth. I finally cleaned it for the first time in months a few weeks ago and I’m sure hubby didn’t even notice! And the sex, sadly, that will likely not improve either. Boo!
