I am waiting.
It is all I do.
I have not been this bored since I became a mom. In fact I didn’t know that being bored was even a possibility for me anymore… Well yes, in-fact it is. When you are trapped in your own body, you get bored.
I am pretty uncomfortable. The fact that I cant bend over, or stand up or lift my foot 2 inches off the ground without a huge effort, or not have my hips ache all night is getting really old… But for the most part I am just bored.
I hate going anywhere, because it makes me really tired… especially when I have Carmen with me. And don’t even get me started on the clothes situation. So I stay at home.
I have been trying to keep my house relatively clean, since I wont have the chance to do much in the weeks following the delivery. But I usually get discouraged because with the fact that I don’t take Carmen anywhere to get her energy out, she gets it out making messes around the house, so it’s like- what is the friggin point?
I have now painted my toenails 3 different times (each time thinking it would be the last time before the baby came) but I get bored with the color and think “hmm, I think I would rather look at red than pink while I am pushing this baby out.” And painting my toenails is no easy task, since like I mentioned before I cant bend over.
Some things I am grateful for that help me pass the time…
Facebook– I only check it about 467 times a day and there is never enough new stuff to read… so for my boredom’s sake- go update your status so I’ll have something to do. but for pete’s sake don’t ask me when I am due… IT’S THE 27th PEOPLE! whoa sorry for that little outburst, but I really should just buy the T-shirt, or get a tattoo (or I guess I could make that my status update… but that would be, like, right).
Flight of the Conchords re-runs- I have watched every episode of this second season at least 3 times. My favorite highlights are the sugalumps and friends songs (that I always have stuck in my head… there are a few naughty words so click at your own discretion), and from last weeks episode when Jemain’s Australian girlfriend tells Murray that her accent sounds like marlyn monroe and he responds “maybe if you squint your ears”.
Cheer up Murray is one of my favorite songs from last season.
This is the funniest show of all time, if you haven’t seen it yet… you are missing out.
My Etsy shop– Because the one thing I can do while pregnant is knit, but it also tends to get old when it’s all you do (and how many times can you knit the same cozy and not get a little bored with it).
Nesting– It really is nice that we get that nesting instinct because it does keep you somewhat busy thinking about what else you need to do before the baby comes. But when you have pretty much done all you can do, the restlessness creeps right back in.
Carmen– While it is difficult being 9 months pregnant, and the mother of a very defiant little 3 year old… She does keep me going. I think she maybe smarter than me already.
She pretty much knows how to use most of the functions of my iPhone.
She can get into almost every part of my house no matter how locked, or high up.
And she comes up with stuff that just blows my mind. Like today, when I asked her why she was eating a cookie when I told her she couldn’t have one and her response was “because I am not a good listener, I am a good naughty-er.”
Well sorry about all the complaint posts lately, but all you preggos know how it is… Soon there will be nothing but “gushing about my baby” posts, so that should probably make up for all this negativity.
So come on out of there baby… with each passing day you are giving me a new stretch mark.
