this is my world

I’ve been such a terrible blogger lately, I know. It’s the middle of March, and I’ve only posted 3 times so far this month! I’m so ashamed.

Excuses? I don’t really have any… at least not any good ones. I’ve been busy of course… but aren’t we all? I’m still frantically working to finish up the last 2 projects for my clients before this baby decides to be born. I’m *thisclose* to being finished with the stenciling in the baby’s room and posting some pictures (GOAL: this weekend) Combine those things with the fact that it seems to take me twice as long to do anything around the house anymore- laundry, cleaning up, showering, walking to the bathroom, getting out of bed- I just don’t have the energy to sit down and write anything interesting or thought provoking.

And in my head, all that’s been going on is thinking about baby stuff: her squirms and kicks, labor, her room, washing the latest batch of clothes (I returned a few things from my shower to BabiesRUs and had TOO MUCH FUN picking out clothes with the refund!) And I feel like posting about that stuff is just… BORING. Who wants to hear about how my belly button is completely flattened out (but not popped out, thank goodness)? Who wants me to write about how I am now TOTALLY waddling because it feels like there’s a head in my crotch? Or that we only have one childbirth class left (tomorrow night!) and then I’ll be on my own to make decisions about drug relief and prepare myself for The Big Event? Really… not very exciting blog material, if you ask me :P

But. This is my reality. So I guess that’s all you get for right now! In another month or so, I’m sure I’ll have much more exciting stuff to write about: diaper explosions, severe lack of sleep, umbilical cords falling off.

So dude- stay tuned. It’s gonna get EXCITING!

    walking around with a head in your crotch really does not sound fun. Good thing it’s temporary!

    I don’t know about everybody else but I read to hear about your life, boring or not. Not to be enthralled by exciting stuff. I like relating to you and learning and finding out about YOU and what’s going on in your head and your house. So don’t feel bad about not being exciting, and don’t feel bad about not posting much. Do what you feel like doing… and we’ll be here. :)

    It’s exciting to me! I like hearing about these things :) It’s your blog.. you should write whatever you want, whether you think other people think it’s boring or not!

    hehe yup…. the babies are left with a small ‘stump’ that shrivels up and falls off after it heals, usually a week or so after birth. Then all that’s left is the belly button!

    Ha. Had to laugh about the stump falling off. It can take up to three weeks for it to come off. It’s actually an exciting thing when it falls off!

    I chose not to save my kids’ stumps but I know a lot of people that save them.

    I can not fathom any reason to save the umbilical cord… it’s a rotting piece of flesh, no?

    He he….I agree with Laura..And I must say..the head in your crotch comment just made my day…. :) I have never had children, of course, but I think it is neat to learn new things about pregnancy…Even the strange things!
