29 Weeks: Bumpdate

by SimplySharpe on January 23, 2014

I can’t believe it’s the last week in my twenties — pregnancy, obviously not age. My birthday is this weekend, and I’m definitely not still in my twenties, though I am pretty happy about that. I have a few friends still enjoying the last years of their twenties, and I forget how different their problems are. They still focus on small things that I forgot to worry about long ago. I love being in my thirties, even if I wish I could pause the clock–about three years ago. Anything after 30 but before 35 just sounds good.

Now, my middle aged arse is ready for the regularly scheduled program:

Simply Sharpe 29 Weeks

How far along? 29 weeks

Maternity clothes? Yes. I have three pairs of maternity pants I love. I would like to burn the rest using striped shirts with caps sleeves for kindling.

Stretch marks? Listen, my Mom had them, I got them. If I’m blessed enough to have a daughter one day, she will get them, too. Life’s unfair. Blah, blah, blah.

Sleep? Still singing the side-sleeping blues every night. Extreme exhaustion has kicked in, too.

Best moment this week? Naps. They may only last 10-15 minutes, but they are appreciated.

Miss anything? I think I went long enough without some turkey sammich talk — I’m ready for my cold, delicious hospital sammich in 10 weeks.

Movement? I keep wondering if he’s a lazy baby like his Mama? I know my anterior placenta muffles his movements, but maybe he just likes to chill in there? I know I would.

Food cravings? All the dark chocolate and the cheese. Who moved my cheese?

Nausea? Nope.

Started showing yet? Showing that I can barely see my feet? Yup.

Labor signs? Thankfully, no.

Belly button in or out? Still an innie.

Happy or moody? Happy, but a bit more irritable than usual. I’m not sure if it’s a coincidence, but all the calls at work lately seem to be made by people who are full of,  “Um, um… I need to, um..um…” and they all think my name is Martha. Why does Marisa sound like Martha?! And why don’t people know what they are calling for when they call a business?! We only offer one service, how do you not know why you called??? WAAAAHHH. Okay, bitchy this week.

Looking forward to? Spending my birthday with the hubs. We’re not doing anything big because I’m low on energy, but just being with him makes me happy. <3
