Was up early today. And no sleep. Sleep is getting worse….I can feel movement and I am uncomfortable in every position, and feel like I’m cramming the little monkey in any position. And then I’m awake and have to pee….lovely cycle!! Every single night!

Anyway, I had to be up early because we had someone coming in to do some work on the flat I am staying in, something that was planned a while ago for when the flat will be rented out again, but also would be useful for us, so my mum wanted it to be done before the little monkey comes.

Ah the little monkey.

Poor little monkey.

I am at 38 weeks now which apparently means that the little monkey is at almost 20 inches and there is just no room in there. Seriously. How can that length fit in my belly???? Seriously!

It must be crammed cabins in there. Tight quarters! And the little monkey is moving around A LOT!!! He is obviously not happy. He is fighting for some room in there.

I feel bad that there is no room in there.

So, little monkey, this is for you…

Sorry little monkey that I’m not sleeping well and not letting you sleep, or schmooshing you in my positions.

I’m sorry I’m short little monkey.

I’m sorry I’m eating and making less room in there for you little monkey.

I don’t know where you a fitting right now but I sense from all your movement and pressure you are giving me, that you’re crammed. I don’t blame you little monkey and I will put up with all that for you.

And if you want to come out earlier little monkey because you need more room, I won’t blame you either.

Eeeeeeeeek!!

I had a boozy long lunch yesterday – well not me of course, my friends Clare, Emily and Laura did and did me proud by drinking for me and the little schmonkie 🙂

It was also pouring out, I mean super pouring, so we got stuck, and even though the restaurant we went to was close to me, it was crazy sideways rain outside so we stayed. We all met for lunch and left 6 hours later in the prime of dinner time! I’m sure the wait staff must have loved us haha!

Anyway, the convo naturally would always come around to babies frequently. And with each bottle of wine all the fun questions came out!

As well as the baby naming game!! Which I had to shut down haha!!

I know, I know – I have to deal with that soon – trying to finish this one book first and then will move on back to the baby name book!

Names game then moved to feeling Bubbles game 🙂

I loved how everyone wants to feel the little monkey move – and despite the little one being naughty and usually not bubbling when you want him to, they actually managed to feel him! I think me sitting for 6 hours schmooshed him enough for him to have to shift about! Sorry Tess – I know you waited for ages at my NYC baby shower to feel a kick/bubble and got nothing but that doesn’t mean the little schmonkie doesn’t love you!!!

Anyway, one of the best questions asked yesterday was – do my boobs rest on my belly now?? And I had never really thought about it to be honest or noticed that as something hilarious, as it is, as they do rest there!! Haha!! When I sit down – like right now writing this blog – its like a perfect perch!

I guess I never imagined that the pregnant belly would sit out and from so high up – although that’s the stereotype for carrying a boy – but I also don’t have small boobs. I looked down as I was about to type and yup, they are sitting on their belly shelf haha!!

I could hide things under there! Or lose things!! 🙂

I’ve been watching those Border Patrol shows on TV…so this could be a good smuggling tactic haha!!

Yesterday, and what feels like today already, I have been quite uncomfortable in my stomach. Especially up near my ribs when I am sitting up – which is practically all day then!

I don’t know.

The little schmonkey is just moving up there or putting his feet there or his hands there or his butt – last time I had a sonogram before I left NYC the woman doing the tests told me that his head was on my right side with his hands and his feet and legs on my left side, and his butt, his little bottom, were up near my ribs it sounded like!!!!!!

Great so his bottom is up near me!! Is it his little bottom that is causing me this discomfort in my ribs then???

Get your bottom down little monkey!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bottoms in the air…clearly an Anastassiou 🙂

I am at 30 and a half weeks now – which is CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!

It’s weird now as the “bubbling” that’s going on is still constant but it sometimes feels super weird – weirder than normal – like the little schmonkey is moving – literally moving his whole self or something as it’s quite pronounced and bubbly-er!! Like sometimes there’s a bunch in a row!

STRANGE!!

Sometimes it makes me go “Whoah!!” out loud and freaks me out a bit!!!!! Or a lot!!!!!!

Let’s face it – it freaks me out A LOT!!


365 ONE: day 95…I have so many clothes….and yet I have nothing!

If you saw how many clothes I have you would laugh at me when I say “I have no clothes!” But, it’s true! I don’t!!!!!!! I know there are piles of it by the bed, hanging up, shoved in loads of drawers, at the back in the spare room closet, in the living room closet….and piled on my bike!! BUT…I feel like I have nothing!!!

I need to go through my clothes I guess and donate but I have a hard time getting rid of things, and how can I do that now when I am pregnant??? What if I can’t get into any of my clothes I own but I know I will want to wear them in the future when I am hopefully back to my original size??? So how can I make that call now??

I can’t seem to find anything to wear in the mornings (partly due to the mess that needs to be tidied so I can actually SEE my clothes) but “I have no clothes!” and so I get annoyed – this happened when I was at my smallest size too, but now that my body is changing I feel especially poopy about it!!!!!!

I was like a monkey and a headless chicken running around this morning – pulling clothes out, trying them on, then ripping them off again and chucking them!!!

I look/looked POOP in everything!

Whaaaah (or insert your spelling of whiney crying/moaning noise here) !!!!

Ah, something to look forward to again tomorrow morning….boy oh boy…

Unless it really is time to sort, or at least clean up, or donate some things or…..GO SHOPPING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
