Eight conclusions from a VERY pregnant Mama to be.

Staring down the barrel of the 40 week pregnant mark with the aim of raising a natural baby, here are some conclusions I’ve reached:

#1)  Having an ever growing appendage attached to the front of ones body does not make bending, moving, jumping, running or sitting easy

#2)  Fran’s attendance at midwife appointments is imperative.  If only to make that damned waiting room downtime tolerable:

Wait a minute, how come I can't have a flattering profile shot as well?

#3)  The list of “don’t eat” foods easily outweighs the “eat” foods, but that doesn’t mean you can’t cheat a little or have the odd glass of wine (every few days).

#4)  You WILL get given a lot of stuff from family, friends and other randoms you come into contact with.  Most of it will be great, the rest of it will need to be goodwilled or trashed.  

#5)  Regardless of how pregnant you are, you’ll try to convince yourself that you can still fit your pre preggo clothes:

And I'm still wearing this hoodie as I type!

And I probably wore this outfit to the grocery store thinking I looked OK.

#6)  Even when you’re not hungry, you’re hungry.  Spoonfuls of peanut butter, anyone?

I'll take the crunchy, please.

I'll take the crunchy, please.

#7)  Until the birth, your dogs are still the babies of the house:

The big dog will always try to squeeze into the little dog's bed.

The big dog will always try to squeeze into the little dog's bed.

And the little dog will always take the big dog's bed.

And the little dog will always take the big dog's bed.

#8)  If in doubt, takeout.  There’s no need to slave in the kitchen when there are plenty of unhealthy, fatty options out there for you to choose from.

I’m at a loss for others, but I’m sure they’re rattling around in my brain somewhere.  Until I find them, let’s hope that this baby comes soon!  I have a date with large orders of salmon and tuna sashimi, followed with champagne chasers once he makes an appearance.
