P’tite date d’après-midi

Cet après-midi, j’ai une date avec mon chum ! On va aller manger des hamburgers chez Cheeburgers et on va aller voir Hunger Games au cinéma. C’est la première fois qu’on va être sans le bébé en un mois. Première date de parents !

J’ai fait une liste de sujets à discuter avec la marraine qui vient garder bébé. J’ai sorti 20$ pour qu’elle puisse se commander quelque chose. Tout est prêt. Elle arrive juste dans 45 minutes mais je suis douchée, habillée, mes dents sont brossées. Les biberons sont au frigo en ordre : le premier en avant est celui qui doit être bu en premier, etc.

Je lui ai sorti ma théière pour qu’elle se fasse du thé. Je lui ai mis des snacks pas santé sur la table.J’ai sorti un pyjama long pour le bébé et un autre tissu pour le changing pad.

Elle voudrait qu’on revienne juste quand on veut mais ça aurait pas d’allure ! Mes seins exploseraient. Je vais allaiter avant de partir et tirer mon lait en revenant. De midi et demi à 17h quelques sans allaiter…oh boy.

Only 3 posts until the end of Nablopomo

3 posts including this one until the end of Nablopomo. I don’t know if I will be able to post much in February once the baby arrives.

I can say I have been so lucky that I have gone through my pregnancy without much trouble. I am only starting the uncomfortable stretch where it hurts, it feels like being outside my pyjamas is not normal, sleep is full of un-nightmarish nightmares (I wake up all sweaty from a dream that doesn’t feel like it’s a nightmare), I’m tired, I’m impatient, all I want to do is eat.

I started drinking more coffee again. There was a risk of premature birth but now that I’m in 38th week, the risk is not there anymore.

I worry about contractions. I keep wondering if what I’m feeling is a contraction or the baby moving or what. I will know when it happens. But until then…

What I won’t miss :

  • snoring
  • drooling when I sleep (more than usual)
  • stuffy nose
  • colds
  • not being able to bend at my waist
  • people treating me like I’m made of glass
  • being so damn  hot all the time
  • sweaty feet
  • having to pee a million times a day

What I will miss :

  • people leaving me their seat in the subway
  • all the alone time in the world
  • feeling the baby inside me
  • having a good excuse for having a big round belly
  • luxurious hair
  • beautiful nails
  • leg hair that doesn’t grow

What I’m looking forward to :

  • eating brie
  • eating sushi
  • drinking 3 cups of coffee a day
  • going back to my more intense training
  • seeing my bf with the baby
  • seeing the baby for the 1st time
  • counting toes and fingers
  • hearing his voice
  • watching him sleep
  • long walks with the baby and the daddy

Nouvel ordi !!

Mon mac a décidé de rendre l’âme. Je n’ai plus internet..sniff.

J’ai donc acheté un nouvel ordi ! En attendant que mon chum configure la bête, je lui emprunte le sien. Je ne vais probablement pas écrire beaucoup tant que mon nouvel ordinateur ne sera pas prêt.

Ce sera mon premier ordinateur acheté avec mon argent. Je suis fière de moi.

1982 : Je sais enfin faire du vélo

After years of being teased and coaxed I finally got on a bike and rode it without help, by myself. I was seven years-old, late again.

My Sister was already on a bike and I was still with trainer wheels. I couldn’t do anything right the first time, everything took so much time and effort. And the more people tried to help, the worse it was. I was afraid of everything, and it seemed like my family’s expectations were the worse.

So One night, Denis, my mother’s friend, brought his old bike with a banana seat. Said it wasn’t new but he would give it to me if I wanted it, I could try it. While everyone was inside and My Sister was doing her numero de charme, the street was quiet and no one was around, I just started pedalling. A great push and just couldn’ t stop. I finally felt free !!

My heart was beating hard, my eyes were dry and my hands were sweaty, I was tense but freeeee !!!

I rode and rode…in circles. Our street is a terrasse, it’s a big round and I didn’t have permission to get out. Anyway, I didn’t know how to brake ! What if a car arrived ? What if I fell ? So I continued and I was giddy.

But I couldn’t wait to tell them I could ! I could !!

So I just bumped in a car parked in our driveway, fell and ran to tell the adults. They didn’t believe me. They never did. So I showed them. It wasn’t the same, I had trouble.

But I knew I could !
