Things I’ve said in recent past:
“I can’t wait to meet my kid in October! Is it October yet?”
“Is the first trimester over yet? I’m tired of being sick all the time…” (Note, this has now changed to is this pregnancy over yet? The nausea did not expire after 12 weeks.)
“Is this low recovering yet? I don’t really want another glass of juice. Oh – shut up Dex…”
“Why hasn’t this Super Bolus kicked in yet? 2 hours later and I’m still in the 190s.”
“Why don’t I have a bump yet? And all of my pants still fit?” (Updated recently to “When will I feel the kid kick me in the stomach?)
“I’m never going to sleep again comfortably again, am I? How much longer until morning?”
“Work is driving me nuts… is it time for maternity leave yet?”
“I miss eating real food…”
“Can I dance tonight? No? How about tomorrow?”
To me: “have you found out the sex yet?” “No – not til 20 weeks. Not until June.”
“This nursery isn’t going to clean itself out, is it? Eh – we still have time.”

I am so re-living my pregnancy vicariously through you 🙂 So happy for you!!! Keep the running tally of the crazy things you say. You’ll REALLY enjoy hearing the things your kid says someday. Like what I said the other day, that I never imagined would come out of my mouth: “Would you please stop licking the car?” (a full sized real car, not a toy one, at that.)
Hehe! I’m looking forward to the awkward kid moments too. But yeah, it’s been a rough 16 weeks thus far.
Though, it looks like I came back in time for D-blog Week!
P.S. And I totally remember the first 20 weeks taking FOREVER. The second 20 go much faster, I promise!!
I really hate to tell you this, but you will not sleep comfortably again for a long time…. Three years later and now it’s: “Mooommmmm… I need (insert thing) nowwwww!!” What’s a full night of sleep? (But worth it. So happy for you!)
And the bump? You’ll wake one day and you’re smuggling a basketball. Seriously.
I know – I was just hoping to catch a few more Zzzs before the inevitable. Besides – my Dex wakes me up enough.
Is info this public now? 😀
Nearly. Everywhere but Facebook. 🙂
October will be here before you know it!!!
