Three (3!) Things Thursday

1. I’m pretty sure that Alvie Bean is having a major growth spurt, which in turn is causing my belly to have a major growth spurt, which causes discomfort and exhaustion. I’d be angry, but I think it’s futile to be angry at a fetus.

2. I had a mildly crappy swim last night, due to the aforementioned discomfort. BUT – I did get in the water for about 25 minutes, even if the swimming wasn’t great. AND, in the locker room after, a woman said she was really impressed w/ how well I was swimming for a preggo. She then ruined it – she asked when I was due, and when I said the beginning of April, she was shocked & asked if I was having twins. I’m just short-waisted! I am 7.5 months pregnant with only the one baby.

3. I am training a new employee this week, and I think she’ll be great. However, it’s so hard for me! I could do it faster myself! I am a terrible delegator. I know in the long run, it will be better, but for the next few weeks, it’s going to be hard to relinquish control. I told her that this was a limitation of mine and to let me know if I was getting to micro-managey or back seat drivery. I hope she actually does tell me. I don’t want to be obnoxious.

  1. It’s perfectly acceptable to be angry at a fetus. Lord knows you will direct lots of anger at him after he’s born.

  2. Well I am also very impressed with your swimming, but I won’t ruin it! I think that’s very common- people don’t know how big a full-term pregnant woman gets. People are morons! You are beautiful.

  3. I think those that aren’t preggers have no concept of how “big” or “small” a pregger person is supposed to look at the various stages…I certainly don’t =).

    Be impressed you did great! 25 minutes is better than 0 minutes.

  4. I agree with above comments – even people who are pregnant don’t really know. One of the first things I noticed in my prenatal class was how different everybody looked. I tried to guess where they were at before we went around the room mentioning how far along we were and the bigger the belly – the farther off I was.
