The tired month
Previous Entry :: Next Entry

Oof. Every day for the past few days, I've planned to write a journal entry...and every day, I've ended up feeling way too tired and brain-dead to manage it. Sigh. This ninth month of pregnancy is no picnic. (And really, how ironic is it that women are incapable of good sleeping in this last month of pregnancy, right before the months of real sleep deprivation actually begin? Wouldn't it be more sensible if our bodies went into full-out hibernation mode to get us into tip-top, well-rested shape beforehand? There are sooo many things I would change about pregnancy if I were in charge of the universe...)

Still, I've had a good week so far. Monday I had a great lunch out with a couple of friends and their adorable 18-month-old, who's always a great reminder of how much fun little kids can be. We talked about writing and publishing and ate delicious pizza and tiramisu. Mmmm! Tuesday, our birthing pool arrived in three huge boxes - that'll be poor Patrick's next big DIY job, along with the 10,000 other things waiting to be done to the house - men definitely don't have an easy time in this last month of pregnancy, either. I keep saying: "I'm ready for the baby to just come out. I want this pregnancy to be OVER!" and Patrick keeps saying, "Not until the house is ready!"

And we had our very last prenatal class this morning. It was a very strange feeling to realize that the next time we all see each other, at the post-birth reunion, we'll all be carrying babies with Very real.

In the meantime, I'm having a great time re-reading old Georgette Heyer novels. I'm midway through The Unknown Ajax right now, which is even more fun now that I'm actually living in Yorkshire myself. (The snobby Sussex nobles in TUA are absolutely appalled that the hero has come from vulgar Huddersfield, just next to Leeds. The hero, well-aware of their prejudices, teases them throughout by putting on a thick Yorkshire accent just to watch them blanch with aristocratic horror.) I'm also brainstorming more ideas for Kat by Ghostlight, stocking up on light, fun movies to watch after the baby comes, and taking as many naps as possible.

Hope everyone else is having a good week!
