Friday Thoughts

It just occurred to me that I have 7 work days left (at most) before I start maternity leave.  One week.  Holy moly.

The swelling has really kicked in this past week.  My feet and ankles look ridiculous.  I’m thankful to have made it as long as I did and I’m hoping it doesn’t get as bad as it was with W.  On the bright side, I’m still able to wear my rings (for now).  I’m certain they were off at this point with W.  On a related note, nothing fits me these days and it’s pretty depressing.

Also pregnancy related, baby has nightly parties in my belly.  He moves like crazy in the middle of the night, which makes me think he’s going to be a night owl.  So I’ll have a 2 year old and a newborn who do not sleep at night… Lord, help me!  Preparing to be a mom zombie… “mombie”... as if I weren't one already - Ha!

We had Irish and German colleagues in the office Monday through Wednesday.  It was really busy, but we received lunch and breakfast every day!  Score!  Chinese food, sandwiches, pizza, and cookies… oh my!  A pregnant girl’s dream come true!  I’m expecting the scale to not be kind to me at my next doctor’s appointment.

If you’re a parent, go like the Honest Toddler facebook page.  It’s hilarious.  And be sure to view the sleep deprived selfies.  So.darn.funny.  Made me feel a tad better about W’s sleep habits.  Speaking of, W woke up 4 out of the past 5 nights.  Uggh.

I had planned to write more, but ran out of time.  Have I mentioned that work has been CRAZY lately??  Maternity leave is going to be interesting... I'm anticipating emails.


  1. Oh to be 7 days out! Must be nice. How much time are you taking before the baby's due date?

    1. I have a scheduled c section so 1 day. :) People think I'm crazy and keep asking why I'm still working. You should see the looks I get. ;) But I'm not sure what else to do. I can't keep up with my 2 year old these days so staying home with him seems like a poor choice - he has more fun with his grandmas. I could drop him off and stay home, but I'm not the type to sit around and watch tv - that would be great for a day, then I'd be bored. So I keep coming to work. :) I have a desk job so it's not strenuous and I'd rather save my maternity leave for when baby is here.
