I just realized that I have less than 60 days before this little man pops out of the old babymaker (aka Cooter)! Technically/medically the kidlet will be considered "fully cooked" in just 5 more weeks! I can't believe how quickly time has flown with this pregnancy. From what I hear, the next few weeks will be pretty long, but I'm up for the challenge.
I'm still feeling freaking great (knock on wood) with only some back discomfort. The discomfort seems to come from the fact that Jack likes to wedge his foot in my ribs and somehow that radiates towards the corresponding part on my back. I roll up a towel or blanket and lean against that and I feel much better.
I'm currently finishing up week 1 of my 2.5 week United States tour (Philly, DC, Boston, LA, and back to Seattle), and am doing well. I miss Troy and being home, but I'm able to see a great friend this weekend while I'm staying outside of DC. She has the most adorable son ever, and I wished to god that I loved almost anything in life as this little man loves his Jumperoo. He literally screams with joy while he's in it.
I've sent my friend and her husband out for dinner and a movie and am watching her munchkin for the evening. He woke up crying 45 min ago, but I was able to get him back to sleep in about 10 minutes without major incident. I wish all babies were this easy and happy!
I'm excited that when I get home in a few weeks that I'll have my baby shower! My sis has done an awesome job planning it, and I'm looking forward to catching up with all the special women in my life.
Oh and someone call CPS because I just poisoned my baby with a shitload of SweetTarts. They sounded like a great idea at the time, but after 2 hrs straight of Jack going all fetal ninja in my ute, I'm thinking candy will no longer have a part of my life until this squirmy man-baby is out of my bellah. It's such a weird feeling tonight because he seems to keep trying to push his butt out through the small space below my rib cage. I keep threatening to "spank" his infant butt if he doesn't simmer down and chill out.
