Slacker

Don't miss out on my new posts - sign up for my email newsletter.
I admit it, I have been slacking lately. At blogging. At being productive. At basically everything. But I kind of think I have a good excuse - the whole being 24 days away from my due date thing. I have truly been taking every single opportunity to rest and relax lately. Part of that is forced because I have reached the point where my feet start puffing up as soon as I'm up and moving around. Another part of it is the tiredness - sleep is getting more and more difficult as the days go on. And since I can still take the time to relax and rest when I'm exhausted, I'm making sure to do just that. Soon enough, this tiredness will be caused by a little person who doesn't allow me to just put my feet up and zone out.

Aside from being the major slacker that I have become, we had our maternity photos taken this weekend and I am dying to see them! The photoshoot was a baby gift from my in-laws and I'm super grateful. It's not something that I would have ever thought to have done myself.

We also went shopping for some of the baby things that we still needed. I still have a few items that I want to get before Little One is born, but I think we're actually pretty set when it comes to the must-have items. What a strange thought, considering the fact that we barely had anything just a few weeks ago.

Did I mention that my due date is in 24 days? Just over three weeks. Although my instincts are telling me that I'm going to go later than that. I think I've decided that if I make it to the Friday of the week that I'm due (I'm due on a Thursday), that day will begin my leave from work regardless of whether I've gone into labor or not. That way if labor hasn't started yet, I can potentially squeeze in a few extra days of doing absolutely nothing.

If there is one thing I look forward to about not being pregnant anymore, it's my lowered immune system. During my first trimester, I think I caught every cold/flu/whatever that was going around at the school that I work at. After only one week back to work, I've already managed to catch a cold. I don't even know how it happened - I barely came into contact with the kids last week because I had so many things to do when they were in the library and I've been crazy obsessive about washing my hands. And yet here we are, Tuesday of the second week and I'm coughing and my throat is itchy and I'm fantasizing about taking NyQuil and sleeping for 10 hours.

And now I'm off to return to my laziness. Because I've been awake since 3am and I'm already planning on taking a nap after work, but I also plan on doing absolutely nothing requiring effort before work.
