some observations

  1. People keep emailing me (jay) to ask how vee and the bump are; so much that I’ve taken to copying and pasting the same paragraph over and over again. The paragraph says she is OK but a bit uncomfy and I think we’ll both be happy for the baby to come sooner rather than later because s/he is fully cooked. Strangely, I have not yet had any replies to any emails containing this paragraph.
  2. A woman’s nesting is never done. Next stop: the car. It’s gross; too gross for BB to be exposed to.
  3. Heavily pregnant and rather grumpy ladies (like vee) generally do not get on very well with oversensitive, PMTy ladies (like me), especially not on a Friday afternoon when both ladies are very tired.
  4. The above issue is quite easily resolved by one of the ladies offering to make a cup of tea for the other.
  5. According to our ticker, we have 14 days to our EDD. Fourteen days! That’s two weeks! That’s… scarily soon.

  2. my comment re #1. i so hear you, and that’s exactly how i felt. being so huge and heavy is uncomfortable, and the anticipation is huge. but my midwife put things in perspective for me. she said (and was right): this is a precious and magical time, and you will never have time like this again. enjoy it, and enjoy each other. watch movies. go to restaurants. take walks. have sex. sleep whenever possible. do things that you will not be able to do for many months to come.

  9. Wow – 2 weeks?! I’m so exited that BB is on his/her way so soon. Also, I’ve never heard PMT before and had to google to see what the T stood for.

    I can’t believe how very soon BB is coming! I hope you two are able to enjoy one another for these couple of weeks–especially once that PMT subsides, Jay. It’s not long now at all! xoxo
