The Waiting Game
Hi friends! Took a little blogging break for a few days to do…well, not much of anything, really. Ryan has been super-busy with work lately—like, leave the house at 7 and come home at 9 busy. I get so used to having him around most of the time that when he has these stretches of needing to be gone a lot, it feels super-lonely around the house. I’ve basically been eating frozen dinners, hanging out with the dogs, and doing my work (except for teaching) from home…wah, wah. Luckily, the craziness should end this weekend, and then we only have one more week of school until spring break!!!
Last year, we went to Key West. This year, we’ll be watching natural childbirth videos and finalizing our birth plan. What a difference a year makes, right?
We’re officially nearing the end—we’ll have a doctor’s appointment every week from here on out, and they’ll check me for progress each time. As of my appointment yesterday, I was still 100% closed—fine by me! I’d like her to stay in and cook for as long as possible…get those lungs developed, little lady! The doctor *did* say, “You know, I have to tell you—I don’t think this is going to be a small baby.”
Just what you want to hear when you’re sitting in those dang stirrups.
After I pressed her a little bit, she told me that she just didn’t want me to think that I was going to have a six pound baby—probably closer to 8, by her guess. Whew. 8 pounds is fine by me—I just want to steer clear of double-digits.
Anyway, all is well—baby is cooking, but I’m…well, not. Again, Amy’s frozen dinners have been my bffs as of late. Here’s a picture of the smoothie I had this morning…the closest thing to “cooking” that I’ve done over the past few days:
I’m hoping to get back into the kitchen soon! We need to start stocking our freezer for life with baby. Any good recommendations for recipes that freeze well?
