Pregnancy week 39 only deserves bullet points

  • No baby Yet
  • Tight, tight skin stretched over my huge stomach
  • Raw scratches on belly from where I unknowingly scratch at night (looks like the cat has attacked me)
  • Cankles are back, on both sides–went to see acupuncturist today to see if she could help
  • We have commitment ceremony to attend on Saturday and no dresses fit me, no shoes fit me
  • I pee at least 30 times/day and 12 times/night
  • I sneezed at Target the other day and pee ran down my leg under one of the last skirts I fit into and onto my Chaco shoes that I can wear only unbuckled (fortunately Chaco’s are quite washable)
  • Attended Ethan’s freshman orientation last night–the spectacle I am–and didn’t get to just sit in the bleachers but had to play “get-to-know-you” games with other parents in the gym (had to stand for 2 hours)
  • Hoping I am retaining water in my butt, otherwise, why won’t these shorts fit that were falling off of me just two months ago?
  • Wonder if my cankles have anything to do with the large bag of Cheetos I bought for myself and ate after peeing in the baby aisle of Target to assuage my misery
  • Can no longer reach to shave my legs; baby will think he’s being born to a gorilla

  1. Poor Heidi! Standing for two hours at the freshman orientation? Peeing on yourself at Target? Cankles and scratches and no clothes that fit? I sure hope that baby’s born soon! (On the plus side, you’ve made it to 39 weeks, which probably seemed like an impossible feat a couple months ago!)

  2. Thank you for a great laugh today, Heidi! I all too well remember those days when the all the body wants to do is retain the water and then dispose of the water … in not such cool ways! Hang in there!
