Week 36: The Countdown Begins
Next Sunday it will have been 37 weeks, and you should be fully baked. It’s time to start dropping bebé… I only need to do one last trip to the baby store to be completely ready for your arrival. Everything else is waiting for you.
This week, people’s comments about the hugeness, grossness, and ouchness of my belly are starting to affect me. For that reason, I will not upload any more belly photos to Flickr. Interestingly enough, a few days ago some guy made a dirty comment on my latest bare belly photo. He said something about my belly being delicious and him wanting to play with my belly button. Disgusted, I deleted the comment and blocked the guy. However, that weirdo with a pregnancy fetish may have been the only person with something nice to say about us, so it’s kind of funny how my perspective has changed.
I was perfectly happy and self–confident before, but now I am officially scared of labor.
I don’t want a c–section
I don’t want forceps
I don’t want cuts to my vagina
I don’t want urinary incontinence
I don’t want to agonize for 24 or more hours
I don’t want anything bad happen to you
I don’t want anything bad happen to me
I had a hard day yesterday and am officially scared.
I’m about to go and see my doctor. We’ll see what she reports…
