Running Out Of Steam


To quote a funny movie, Drop Dead Gorgeous, “I’m like, due or something.”  That’s the response that’s been popping into my head whenever my husband wants to make plans for our family.  I am 38 weeks pregnant, and I don’t feel like doing anything.  I just want to lay in bed, get up to eat, then lay in bed some more.  And I do sleep when I’m laying down, so I must be tired and needing the sleep.  But this is weird for me.  I haven’t been bored in years, and now I feel bored, not because I have nothing to do but because I don’t feel like doing anything.  It’s so annoying!  There is so much to do around the house to get ready for the baby, and I don’t feel like doing any of it.  On top of that, I feel badly not having the desire to entertain my 4 kids, but luckily they’re very good at self-entertaining and their oldest sister has been amazing with spending fun time with them every day while I rest.  But I don’t remember feeling like this with my other pregnancies.  I do feel tired, but this lack-of-motivation-to-do-anything thing is getting old!  Then again, this is the first pregnancy I’ve had being in my 30’s.  Maybe that has something to do with it?

  1. Maybe he will be born Oct. 5, never mind the plans? 🙂

    Aren’t some other birthdays among your family and friends around this time too? Any one will do, but especially the 5th. 8)

  2. I said something similar for the last pregnancy but alas, he arrived a day later 😉

    Not to worry, though, tay. I’m sure that you will be back to your normal routine in no time!

  3. Age definitely has something to do with it. I noticed a difference between my 2 pregnancies. You’re almost there so enjoy the rest. Christine and I can clean your house when we get there. Just leave us a list. Think of the end result. Soon you will be holding an adorable little boy in your arms.

    Derek, our anniversary is the 5th. I assume that is your birthday. Happy Birthday early!

  4. I think I know someone who has a special day every day in October: birthdays, anniversaries, etc. Luke’s birthday is up to God, but I think he would like his own special day every year, not a reminder about who else shares his bday 🙂
