Guess what is on my mind?

Despite my complaints I think I am better off than a lot of people that are over 8 months pregnant. I don’t look like a blow fish (not much more than I did before I was pregnant anyway :P) and I’m more or less okay with everything else. Today is the first time I tried to put on my wedding ring and it wouldn’t go on. I know of a lot of people who struggle with water retention from around week 20 already! (I’ll be 37 weeks on Thursday)

I *think* my tummy might have dropped a little because I have less of a need for Gaviscon, although I still do need to have it now and then. I just don’t need to drink it after every meal or every time I eat or drink something. Dropping tummies mean dropping babies! EEK!

My sling is set to arrive tomorrow. I’m super excited! I can’t wait to see it and try it on and stuffs. I have made absolutely zero progress with the baby room and my hospital bag is sort of half packed. I still need to pack in the last minute things that I am still using like my toothbrush, shampoo, etc. I am hoping the housekeeper is set to tackle the baby room tomorrow. I suppose we should re-arrange our room and put the cot in there so long. We haven’t quite figured out where exactly we are going to put it and of course Babyice will be in our room to begin with. I wouldn’t dare leave him alone in a different room at the start!

Come to think of it there was a baby crying in our complex last night…I heard him/her when I got up to go to the loo in the middle of the night. When I came back from the loo I lay there listening to him/her…thinking about how that was going to be the story of my life really, really soon. This baby had a ‘cute’ cry. It wasn’t that ‘blue murder’ kind of cry, you know? It didn’t sound like it would make your ears bleed. Whenever he started calming down I lay wondering what the mommy/daddy was doing to get that kind of reaction.

2 – 3 weeks. Maybe less. Probably not more. 2 – 3 weeks. That is NO TIME AT ALL. He will be here. I cannot compute this in my head…What on earth did I think? I was just going to be pregnant forever? FARK! It’s so scary!!!!

…and just this post isn’t *all* about babies, all the time…

I found ABBA and Queen Sing Star on Kalahari.net yesterday! I got so excited! I ordered both immediately! It’s going to be so much fun!!!! I just hope we’ll have a chance to sing before Babyice arrives. Surely we can’t sing much after he has arrived? At least for the first while?


I just turned the Sing Star paragraph into a baby paragraph.

Guess what is on my mind. All.The.Time.
