Pregnancy Musings Vol. 3

36 weeks.

I am so, so hot. No, don’t worry, I haven’t had a 180 in my self-esteem since the short hair cut, I mean I am so freaking HOT all the time I have new empathy for menapausal women and all people who live in Arizona. I cannot seem to regulate my body temperature and it’s kind of amusing if you think about it, because naturally I tend to feel much colder than Trent and we are always disagreeing about the covers on the bed or the temp in the house. Things have changed now! I want the ceiling fan cranked up high and lay in shorts and a tank top throwing the covers off like they are hurting me, while he snuggles up under the layers. I also open the freezer and stick my head in for a couple seconds about a dozen times a day.

Whoa…funny thing just happened. Our computer desk has a pull-out keyboard shelf, and in order to get up close to it, my huge belly is resting/pushing on the edge. Sydney just kicked so hard it scooted the shelf forward while my hands weren’t even touching it. Weird!

Also, good news from last dr visit. I actually lost a pound in three weeks! Don’t worry all you “Don’t diet! You’ll hurt the baby!” people, I am NOT dieting. (Have I mentioned Magic Shell?) It probably was the stomach bug. Sydney is perfectly fine according to every measurable test. The other good news is that because of the ultrasound measurement and the fact that although Carson was “on time” it turns out he was actually late, my doc said that if Syd is not here on time, she’ll only wait as long as July 8th to induce. I really like having that date in my mind! Don’t get me wrong….June 28 still sounds better, but at least it’s not indefinite. There is an end in sight. Now? We wait….


  1. I like your outfit.(: I also love the hair… that has to help with the hot flashes!

    I was also extremely hot all the time. More so this last time than with Nathan. My poor Colombian friends froze in our house because I kept it so cool. Hang in there, you’ll be cold again someday.(:

    You look great and wow… 36 weeks, it won’t be long now.
    I’m getting excited.
    love ya,

  2. You look so cute I want to snuggle you up right now!
    Now let’s move onto your hair! I love it. Super cute!
    June 27th-my mom and Derek’s birthday
    June 28th-JJ’s bday!
    Syd is in good company.
    Give me a call because I want to plan a time to come see babe!

  3. hey, i like the hair. but i like you more. hang in there! the finish line is in sight. then you get your body back! and a precious little girl to snuggle.

    love you….

  4. I’m lovin’ the short hair! Aren’t you all adorable pregnant girl with matching shoes??? 🙂 I am assuming the jeans are Jenna’s – I hope she’ll let me borrow them too when it’s time!

  5. Jen, your hair is cute and a very smart move with two kids. I know I freeze the girls out in my office because I have the AC on. The hottest person in our office will be wearing long sleeves and I have on a tank top. Reality is really setting in for me being prego – i just cannot believe that God made our bodies so they could stretch so very far.

  6. JB,

    I got so hot the other day my thighs rubbed together and gave me two huge inner thigh blisters….so i had to put PANTS on which was TORTURE!!! Pregnancy “hots” are the worst….i am righ there with you!! And, yes…good choice on the hair!!!

    Kel 🙂

  7. Okay, you are all so supercute with your hair and your clothes and oh the shoes!!!

    Abel used to kick all sorts of things away from me. He *really* did not dig it when I’d do stirfry and would kick me away from the stove – such a weird thing to be moved from something within.

    Yay for the Final Countdown!

  8. Love the new haircut- Sydney would be proud of her stylin’ mama if she could see you. Guess she gets too soon enought. 🙂 Can’t wait! Hang in there.
