I keep forgetting to update people - like I told everyone that I was being induced, and then I wasn't, and at work I had a draft email ready to go announcing Bassou's birth (because I didn't want to forget anyone's email address) and accidentally hit "send" instead of "save." Serious momnesia. At least my work-mates already knew I was a little out of it. Also, I learned not to update my facebook status with ambiguous quotes that will worry people, like when I heard of Chinua Achebe's death and updated with "things fall apart."
I'm working at home until Bassou arrives, and yesterday we had my weekly OB appointment and the first of twice-a-week fetal monitoring. My OB scheduled me to check into the hospital on April 8 in case Bassou doesn't arrive on time. Then I walked over to the Breastfeeding Center and got fitted for and wound up purchasing a nursing bra. It snowed the whole time and I walked slowly and carefully everywhere, though I was always within a couple of blocks of GWU Hospital, so what was I worried about? I took a taxi home and then settled in for a long nap, and *still* conked out around 9pm.
I need to make an effort to get out and walk around during the day. For the most part I enjoy working at home, especially with the satisfaction of getting household tasks done in addition to work tasks, but I have to remind myself to enjoy the sunshine too.
Oh whoops, Things Fall Apart - I guess that could be considered an ambiguous update! Actually it is a little funny to think about your coworkers seeing you walking around still pregnant having received the birth announcement :D Well, I hope things go well for you during your last moments pre-Bassou-arrival, and I am sure everything will go smoothly and he'll arrive on time!
