I hate pants. They are all too tight in the lower belly and legs. But I can't wear dresses anymore because of the aforementioned gray tennies (well my flats technically fit but allow my feet to swell up like CRAZY). PS - Maternity yoga pants are ok but not for work!
I never realized that pooping normally was such a luxury.
The nice(?) part about being fat, then losing weight, and then getting pregnant...no new stretch marks...
At this point, is 2 cups of caffeine really that big of a deal? I think not. COFFEE IS MINE.
I'm bummed that soon I will not have an excuse to eat Dairy Queen, which was strictly VERBOTEN pre-pregnancy.
I have hated pineapple FOREVER. It's too acidic and makes my tongue and throat hurt. However this week (week 39) I can seriously not get enough of the little fruit cup with juice plus 4oz 2% cottage cheese, eaten every other bite. Weird, right?
I have never been so impatient in my life. I keep reminding myself not to wish time away. It's hard.

Is it considered "nesting" if I can't wait for my housecleaners to come again?
They cleaned last week on Wednesday, and are coming again this week on Wednesday...and I'm freaking out about every speck of dust they missed last time, and the floor being slightly dirty, and the bathrooms needing to be cleaned again...
Now mind you, I'M not the one who is going to clean - but I can't wait for them to come again!
Other things "hanging over my head" that I am being a bit ridiculous about:
I am doing a zillion tiny loads of laundry because I don't want any dirty clothes in the baskets. Also, I have like 3 pairs of pants and 5 tops that fit (for work). Must wash often.
I have reorganized the clothes drawers in Peanut's room about 4 times. Now things are sorted by size though (newborn vs 0-3 vs 3 months vs beyond).
I drank spoiled milk the other day and didn't realize it until a quarter glass through...my taste buds have been 'off' so I just figured that was it. I made Jeff smell it and he about gagged. Oops. So then we both completely threw stuff out of the fridge (when we lost power during the ice storm things got a bit warm and spoiled faster than expected).
I have made about 12 different lists of stuff to do before I go into labor. One of which included "paint toenails". Also, "pack snacks for hospital bag". (Really?)
I am paying my bills on an every-other-day basis. My usual schedule is once every 2 weeks.
The bird feeders are getting refilled at about 3/4 empty. Usually they go empty for a day or two before I notice.
I purchased almost $300 worth of groceries this weekend so I would "have stuff on hand"...
So...is all of this nesting? Or is it just me being SUPER TYPE A to be as prepared as possible??? WHO KNOWS!

I was one of the lucky / smart ones for the #SnowJam Part 1, and took off from work about 11:30AM. I had a completely normal commute - snow was 'just starting' to accumulate on the ground, and had not yet frozen, by the time I got off the interstate.
Our streets were REALLY slippery for about a day last time until everything melted off. I expect the ice storm coming this afternoon will be more of the same.
I will definitely be heading home before all the rain turns to ice. It's about 38 degrees right now.
I hate to say it - but it was REALLY NICE to be this pregnant and have 2 work from home days last time! It kills the group productivity but for my personal production - I got a TON of work done! So we will see how the next 2 days go...stay safe out there!
