I’m working today! Doing a reading at NYU…it’s my first job in a while and probably my last for a while, so I am really eating it up! I’m playing the matchmaker in a NYC musical version of Emma, called Playing with Matches…do you think I’ll be named Emma? I’m pretty excited!
Have you seen my mormon video yet? I get about a thousand new views a day! Crazy!
On to the update:
Last week I did not exercise once. It was Spring Break so I was completely out of my routine, and I just didn’t do it.
The pollen counts sky-rocketed last week, so I spent a lot of my time being a bit miserable anyway. I finally bought some benadryl to get me through the night and certain parts of my day (any part that was outside). Normally I premedicate before the pollen hits, with no less than 3 perscriptions, but since I’m pregnant, I chose not to. Oi.
I hadn’t seen many of my friends for about 10 days, and almost everyone I saw after the break commented on my growing girth. My response: “I thought I was tapering off a bit.” Everyone agreed: “You look unmistakably pregnant now.” Well, I am 8 months pregnant, so I guess that’s ok.
Though things are tightening up in my stomach, I still feel pretty great. I haven’t had any back or joint pain like I seem to remember with Phoebe, and I am still sleeping comfortably. I only get up to pee about once per night (if at all), and as long as I don’t eat crazy late or crazy tomatoes, my heartburn is good too!
My facial expression looks a little funny here, not sure what I was thinking, but whatevs…you can see my belly is bulging! I am not a huge cargo pants girl, and I never joined the j brand Houlihan skinny cargo pants movement that was all the rage in Manhattan, but this maternity shorts version, fit very nicely and were a good purchase (on deep discount–I think that means I am NOT “on trend”). Don’t you love my run-on sentences and poor punctuation?
Oh! Did I tell you Jason bought a minivan for our growing family! They really are great set-ups. Even he was quite happy as he loaded the groceries from costco. We are members again. Jason started the photo riff-raff, how could I not join in?
Is it weird that we have the minivan before the bassinet/car seat/stroller/baby carrier/bottles/diapers/wipes/binkies/everything else? I have a lot to do! Do you think she will be on time?
