Let's do the time warp again...

Sorry about the time lapse... I found that post I put up yesterday nearly completed but had never published it. The past 2 weeks have been something of a blur.
Here's the overview:
  • Started birth classes on the 7th. Only have one more next week, but I'll probably sign on for the breastfeeding classes after that.
  • Decided that the final week before La Cage production that my counterpart could be the one in charge and I would not spend much time at the theatre.
  • One painter was hauled off in the ambulance with heat exhaustion.
  • One painter never showed up to paint.
  • Used about a day and a half of leave (that I was really planning for maternity leave) to go work on the set, since we were short-handed.
  • Thought the whole show would be a disaster.
  • Was pleasantly surprised on opening night when everything went well and everything looked good. All in all, I feel good about the show and what I did on it. Pictures another time.
  • Carl got sick on the 10th and was out of work until the 17th. So far, no virus for Mama.
  • Began packing up books and art supplies and other things that we won't be using until after we move.
  • Made room in my dresser for several baby drawers- it's going to be a temporary changing table until after we move.
  • Finished a swatch for a lace scarf that I wanted to use for the delicious Schaefer Helene I got, and decided I don't think I like it. Pictures another time.
  • Went to the dentist- realized I really cannot lie flat any longer. As I lay there, I felt the baby's weight begin to move onto my diaphragm. Not easy to breathe that way.
  • Got another delicious maternity massage on Saturday. If I'm ever asked for a single piece of advice to give another pregnant woman, it will be to get a couple of massages in the final months. Eternal bliss.
That's about all I can think of at the moment. There was a lot of stress there with that last week of production, but all's well that ends well. Now, I'm getting ready for the baby and getting ready to get the hell out of this tiny apartment and this town! I'm so excited to finally get to meet this child. Just over 5 weeks 'til the due date!

Just 5 weeks, wow! Massages are wonderful, I DO wish I'd known about Maternity Massages when I was pregnant, I did go once to get a massage AFTER my due date was long past (or felt that way anyway) I'm glad your opening night was good and I hope you get some time to relax amidst this busy busy schedule of yours!

ps - We're excited to see baby too (that is if you decide to share him/her with us a tiny bit)

NOW you tell me about maternity massages, when the "baby" is going to be 13 in (gulp) 16 days (and going into the 8th grade in 30 days, yippee!).

don't worry about it, here in teh midwest, t hey were just getting back into breast feeding when i had my first (she will be 23 in november!)

enjoy having your baby! it will be fun (and exhausting, but worth every precious moment)
