Lots of crazy cravings for milk this week. Moo.
For some reason the internet doesn’t have any good images for the 9th week.
The last couple of days I’ve been feeling a new kind of twinge that I swear is my uterus stretching. Fetus is getting ready to grow.
I think it is beginning to dawn on me that this process TAKES a while. I’m a little disappointed with week 9. Fetus is still only the size of a grape? Fetus still looks like an alien? Summer and newborn seems a long way off.
I had my first baby dream. It took my dreaming brain a while to catch up. First there were generalized anxiety dreams, then I dreamed I got a puppy. Close but not quite! A couple nights ago I dreamed I had a boy AND a girl. The experience of holding them (individually but never together in the same room, kind of like Clark Kent and Superman, in this dream) was very vivid and real. Since I don’t know yet whether I’m having a boy or a girl, I think the dream just used both.
I’m trying not to get down on myself for feeling so lazy sometimes. Exercise (besides walking the dog), paperwork, housework…not so much of that going on these days. Pretty much every pregnancy book I read (currently I am reading four at the same time) says to sleep as much as you can, relax and enjoy it because when the baby comes you’ll be busy! You won’t sleep ever again! A bubble bath will be a distant memory as you wallow in your own filth! They always add that last tidbit cheerfully.
Time to get back to all my overdue paperwork. I think Steve is going to get our furnace fixed just in the time for the arctic front.
