Sooooooo….

All the books I have been reading say that the kicking and movement in my pregnant whale bump belly should be less now and/or less pronounced – which makes sense as there is less room for the little one to move in at this stage.

But………

There has been no slowing down of movement. Or less kicking/bubbling.

There has been MORE!!!

It’s like a constant bubble show down there!

Seriously!

I’m constantly bulging at the top of my belly with his feet prodding out all over! Happening right now as I type! Happens ALL the time!

And these prods are BIG still, not minor like the books say.

Soooooo…..

Does that mean that the little one is going to be the next Hulk Hogan?

Or is he getting so fat from all that I’m eating that he is super uncomfortable in the lack of space and fighting to find some room?

Or is he kicking me to show me his rebellious and naughty side from now so that I can be prepared for what the next decadeSSS will be like ahead?

Or is he trying to push down to get out?

Or is he in a constant sugar shock? And freaking out? Like mother like son!!!! Haha!!

I guess we will have to see.

In the famous words of everyone around me: “it’s countdown time”!!!!!

I took Stuart to see the Briarwood apartment today as it seems to be something we (me) are very interested in. I did take that video of the apartment but figured he had to see it with his own eyes. We actually saw two apartments in the building as coincidentally another similar unit came on the market just yesterday – so now we have to really think…

Most of today was about me gathering materials and submitting them to a mortgage broker that we use at work to see what we could be pre-approved for. No idea what they will come up with from us paupers!! Speaking of that – it just made me think about the lottery we played yesterday so must check that ticket!!

So we were asked to check our credit scores online today to give them a sense of what scores Stuart and I have. I’ve never actually checked my credit score before – everything turned out ok though as was waiting for something bad or random on there – glad I paid off my credit cards a few months ago!

BUT…

…I didn’t read the fine print on this website I was on and managed to get signed up for a monthly credit report membership instead of the advertised “free” check. I was rushing as had so much I was also doing at work at the same time and then as it was loading I briefly saw the $17.95 at the bottom in teeny weeny writing…and it was one of those “ah crap” moments 😦

I’m glad I saw that figure in my peripheral vision as wouldn’t have known. As after my free trial I would have been charged almost $18 a month to an account that would not be able to accomodate that!

So then I had to search for how to cancel this sudden membership – which of course could only be done via phone! And on the phone it took forever as she (the salesperson) of course wanted to sell me every possible option – long read out speeches, one after another, of options I could still have if a member. After the fourth courtesy listen I then kept interrupting  with “no thank you” every time she revved up for another speech.

Finally she said “I guess you have your mind made up to cancel everything”

YA THINK????!!!!!!

Sidenote: I wrote some notes about this blog on my blackberry, as I do every day along my day to remember things to 365 blog about later, and I ended up on the wrong subway train at the wrong stop! UGH!!

Lesson today then – don’t take things for granted. Don’t take things at face value!!

It’s one of those days…you have a shower and then boom you’re drenched again it’s so hot, and you haven’t even left the house yet!! I have to carry props today too of course in this heat mania! It’s the humidity that’s going to kill me – and its only May!!

Holy Crappo!!

That’s part of the reason I hope to get out and have the baby in London as this will be horrendous here if I have to stay as its going to be such a hot summer at the rate it’s going! UGH! It’s going to be miserable pregnant here!!

AHHHHHH!! Please Green Card come before I can no longer fly!!!

I’m also in that in between phase too where I feel like I do still need to cover the bump, which is there, because I still feel like I’m in the “unsure if she’s pregnant or just fat” area! And still in denial, I know I know!

I have lots of baggy clothes so that’s not the issue, although you can still see the bump, but I need to wear layers too under as in my office and in rehearsal it gets cold – so I can’t win in this dire heat!! All the baggy clothes that are the lightest for this heat are super huge too so I look even bigger, but frankly I don’t care in this heat!

It’s just too hot!!

Kalo Mina! (Happy First Day of the Month in Greek)

May is my month, well and Stuart’s: tomorrow is my birthday, on the 15th of May is when we got engaged, and on the 19th of May was when we first met and will be celebrating four years! A month of celebrations!

It was a good start to the month – it was predicted to be thunderstorming all day but cleared up and stopped raining, and the sun came out!

Another good thing was that everyone in the cast of my presentation I had today at The Actors Studio didn’t know I was pregnant! They all said they couldn’t tell and would not have known 🙂 So, I guess the bump is not as BOOMING as it is and feels like to me! OR….they all think that I am fat instead!! Great!!

Went back to the maternity shop today as it was on my walk to the subway. They had one of those 7 month predictor belly belts in the dressing room that you can try on with the clothing. I put it on to see what it would look like and freaked out!!!!! It made me look and feel like…

Stuart came to pick me up from there to go to a pre-birthday dinner.

What do you get when you put Stuart in a maternity shop full of preggos = UNCOMFORTABLE! And silent 🙂 Hahaha!

Well…

Farewell age 30!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!
