New Shorts and Cold Front!
Two things might just make this pregnancy-end turn out OK afterall. First, the longest heat wave in 4 years has ENDED!! YIPEE!! I survived without airconditioning at my house (let me interject that I know they manufacture room a/c units but I wanted to tough this out just like my mom and her mom and her mom and her mom did in pregnancy). Let me also say that I spend from 1 pm - 9 pm each night at my mom's house in her airconditioning. hehe. So yeah, I cheated a lot but it was still hot sleeping in my bed this week! LOL.
Secondly, not counting underwear and bras (whole other post entirely!) I have spent less than $30 on maternity clothes this pregnancy!! I bought 2 skirts, 3 shirts, and 2 pairs of pants ALL at goodwill to survive this. I was lucky because a friend gave me all her clothes :).
Where is this going? Since I was so sure that Wilbur was genetically programed to be born early, I have been surving this last month of pregnancy with only ONE pair of shorts that fit me right! AND THEY WERE MADE OF HEAVY SWEATPANT MATERIAL! I refused to go buy any more because I was like "oh this will be over soon". Well, as a 39 week and 3 day gift to myself, I bought a new pair of ultra thin, super comfy shorts. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND A 39 WEEK GIFT TO YOURSELF because heck, not all women even make it to week 39! My mom likes to remind me that she "wouldn't know what week 39 is like". The scummy scum. haha.
Heck with these new thin shorts, I'm sure I could go ahead and be pregnant a whole more month and not even mind!
And lastly, Nick "might" just have jumped on the "you are crazy" bandwagon. Here was our conversation an hour ago:
Nick: Where are you?
Me: At the towpath
Nick: Doing what?
Me: Riding my bike
Nick: You are CRAZY!
Me: I'm at 9.2 miles and still not back to the parking lot!
Nick: You are REALLY CRAZY!
Don't know why he jumped ship today!!! I've been riding my bike every-other day since the snow has melted, and I'm actually making a promise right here, right now, that if Wilbur is still in my belly on July 13th (his due date), I WILL ride my bike :). Don't worry, rescue is a phone call away and I know my body well enough to know what I can handle!
