I read about it in books and e-mail updates, I've had people ask me about it over the past few weeks, but I didn't know what they were talking about until now.
I am OVER being pregnant!!!
And it's not even because I don't like it or because I'm in pain. Pregnancy has treated me very well and I have loved (almost) every minute of it. Sure, I'm starting to get a little uncomfortable now, mostly at night, but I can't even bring myself to complain about it b/c I've been so lucky.
No, I'm over it because of people! The only thing that people seem to be able to talk to me about is
"When is that baby coming?" (When it's ready!)
"What are the names?" (Everyone knows we're keeping them a secret)
"Do you know what you're having?" (A baby!)
"How are you feeling?"
(at work) "You're still here?"
(to DH) "Don't go within arms reach of her during labor, trust me! My wife...(fill in the blank with some ridiculous story)."
Ugh. I am just as anxious as anyone for this baby to come, but in reality, it could still be another 3+ weeks. And I'm afraid I might throat punch someone before then. I don't want to spend the last few weeks of pregnancy being cranky, but it's driving me crazy!
Thank you for letting me get this out. DH can only take so much
