I’m expecting at the end of the summer and my two boys are now going to have another brother. Having grown up with all sisters, having all boys in the house kind of feels like this.
It’s not like that ALL the time. They do get sick every now and then.
But honestly boys are a lot of fun. I have always gotten along better with boys growing up and I always wanted to know what it would be like to have brothers. Having sons has been a great experience for me. I did want a girl just for a new challenge, but I’m a little relieved because I have no clue how to raise a girl. I feel like I have a handle on the chaos that is raising boys.
And playing Legos and video games with my goofy boys is so much fun.
People ask me all the time how I’m feeling and I think I could sum it up like this.
I don’t get morning sickness which I count as a blessing. I have some sciatic nerve pain but it’s getting a little better now. I also have a hard time staying awake past 8 pm even if I had a nap during the day. Mostly I just eat a lot (oh chocolate how I crave thee) and it’s life as usual.
I usually sleep like a rock, but when I’m pregnant I don’t. I have to pee several times in the night and it’s hard to get comfortable with a baby bump so I don’t sleep as deeply as I usually do. And that means very strange dreams.
The weirdest dream so far is one that I think my fellow book friends will appreciate. It’s set in the world of Daughter of Smoke and Bone. In my dream, I was human and pregnant but then I somehow died. I was reincarnated into a newly built, larger demon body which I was getting used to. I was talking to people about how I was expecting and how excited I was….until I realized it was my old body that was pregnant and not this new demon body. I was devastated since I didn’t know what happened to my old human body and I had to assume the baby didn’t live.
Husbands reaction to this dream:
He hasn’t read that book and couldn’t get past the new-demon-body-thing.
All my dreams in pregnancy end in disaster of some sort. Other pregnancy dreams include: baby being born with humongous teeth, baby being pickled in a jar in a lab, scientists bringing back dinosaurs and the black plague causing all the people to die, and baby being kidnapped by space cowboys in a Winnebago.
They are hilarious when I’m awake but truly terrifying while I’m asleep. My subconscious is a very strange place.
As far as blogging goes I seem to be going through this nesting phase where I must write all the post ideas and drafts that I’ve had sitting in my folder for a year. I don’t know exactly why but it might have something to do with the fact that after the baby comes I might look something like this for a month or two.
So there you have it. A long post with spongebob gifs about how I’m pregnant. I think I’ll end with this gif since I’ve eaten five fun size snickers bars while writing this.
