11 days till my due date. Almost to single digits! I tried to speed up the process this weekend but painting the front of the milk house and unloading a load of hay only gave me hay rash and a sore back.... and me asking hubby to throw me in the car last night because I couldn't lift my foot high enough to get into my own Jeep. lol Well.. technically it got me a date at the fair too. I was making everyone nervous enough that they told hubby they would take over barn chores if he agreed to take me to our town fair for fireworks last night. Hubby and little man enjoyed the fair food. I got a small bowl of ice cream and was done. I didn't even want fried dough sprinkled in sugar. Something is seriously wrong with me at this point.

Now I just have to decide.. gym or no gym. I managed to get into my own vehicle without assistance this morning. I also managed to lock my keys in my car the second I got to work so I was 45 minutes late getting to my desk. I did learn which member of the maintenance crew could break into my car in 1 minute flat though. Trained security crew who is suppose to know how to jimmy a car?? 44 minutes and asked 300 times if I had AAA. Maintenance guy who was walking by and asked to give it a try. 1 minute. I love this man. I may name this child after him. lol I just have to find out what it is and get him a giant box of cookies as thank you. Now I can pretend it never happened and hubby will never know just how looney his wife has become.

So.. am I a good employee who makes up the time working through lunch.. or am I a pregnant woman going through the equivalent of a kid getting excited about spring break. Yes.. I consider maternity leave a type of spring break. It's the only extended vacation I can get from work, the barn, the cows, and I get to flash my boobs every couple of hours.. so yeah.. just like spring break. Plus bouncing on the elliptical could speed things up!

You start to rethink your gym habit when you suddenly become tempted to ask the woman in the stall next to you "Can you help me put my pants on?" hehe That almost happened today. I made it to the gym for the 4th time this week. Then.. well.. I couldn't put my pants back on. lol Now I know what women are talking about when they say they stopped being able to put their own shoes on at this point of their pregnancy. Personally I'm a big kid and I haven't had to tie my shoes because well.. they either don't tie or because I've stretched them to the point that I can just pull them on. I probably wouldn't have been able to tie my shoes either. Somewhere a gym shoe nut is screaming at their screen. Actually a gym nut is probably passed out on the floor from rolling their eyes so many times if they follow me.

I should have known something had changed when my belly hit my steering wheel this morning. Only disadvantage to being 5 foot tall is there isn't alot of room between the two in the first place. Add a small human and you may as well stop eating in the car because everything gets stuck right there.. and then well.. by the time you get to work that tiny crumb from your breakfast bar has created a smiley face on your belly. That's why I switched to breakfast shakes.. so I could add some eye balls to the smiley face and pretend it was done on purpose. No one seems to question it with maternity clothes. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

So.. there is a week left in my membership. Whether or not I'm able to take advantage of it will be determined by my ability to dress myself come Monday. Only 14 more days though! I think I've done pretty good at freaking out the other gym goers. If it comes to it I will just throw on some comfy shoes and walk the track upstairs.. in the air conditioning.. because pregnant chicks sweat. ALOT. It isn't pretty.

Now I just have to solve the mystery of the missing panties and my day will be complete. I could have sworn I packed an extra pair with my gym clothes like I always do.. because pregnant chicks sweat.. alot.. in alot of places. They were missing. Since I didn't discover any in the bathroom or locker room I'm assuming they're laying in a parking lot somewhere after leaping from my bag in an attempt to escape. Or.. maybe they are on the dining room table where I packed my bag. Or heck.. my bag is next to little man in the backseat when I take him to daycare. Maybe he's wearing them on his head right now. Till then.. wish me luck. I'm going commando hoping I don't sneeze and pee myself.

It's official. People love to feed pregnant women. I came into the office today to find watermelon on my desk. Yummy! I guess my obsession with watermelon finally got annoying to someone in the office because it magically appeared. Then I get invited to lunch by my temp. Who fed me italian food and gave me my first baby gift. Adorable fox onsies. I wasn't really expecting anything with my 3rd other than eye rolls and mutterings of "really?? another one??" so I was shocked and over emotional. lol Then the restaurant brought out my dish.. and it was heaping high. As in could feed an army of 10 amount. Apparently they thought I needed more than the average person.

So .. um.. no gym. But watermelon and lasagna.. and some noodles.. and a meatball. But I did say no to the whole dessert thing. Even though they kept trying to put it in the to go box too. So no gym but eating wasn't uncontrollable either. Plus I started getting random contractions last night milking cows so maybe it was time for a rest day. Yes milking cows. I think the squats help hurry things up so I will continue to milk cows until I can't get back up. With little man.. that was the day before he came. lol With this one.. eh.. maybe tonight. Chasing little man in between cows is exhausting. Especially when he's wearing his superman shirt and he thinks he's superman.. then he comes running down the barn floor full speed expecting you to catch him and do one of those dirty dancing moves with the kid above your head in full flying pose. Which is ok. Unless someone else is in the barn. At this point my shirt doesn't cover my entire belly and well.. no one needs to see that train wreck except small children and the man that caused it. lol He better start thinking stretch marks are sexy or he's dead meat.

In other exciting news.. I've been a train wreck this week. Hubby went in for his regular exam and they found an irregular heartbeat.. on top of the diabetes they found last year. Today the cardiologist cleared him. He still has one more test but everything is ok. He has 3 of the risk factors they look for so he will have regular monitoring but ok. Great even. This way I will have regular confirmation that my husband is doing ok. His dad died at 53. We're about to have another baby. I don't care if he has to go for daily tests. At least now I can stop hyperventilating and balling my eyes out every time little man asks where he is. Instead I'll just keep hiding veggies in his food and telling little man to attack him so he gets his exercise.. even if it is superman poses in the barn with a 35 lb squirmy weight.

Well.. I made it to the gym yesterday. For 15 whole minutes. lol Ok I may have been phoning it in a little but I had a doctors appointment at 2 and my boss is riding my butt to get all sorts of things done before I pop. At this rate I will be sitting at my desk drooling the last week. So it was only 15 minutes or I would have been stressed the rest of the day. It seems to be working though. I worked out at 12. By 2 my blood pressure was 120/60. Fantastic! I don't think my blood pressure has ever been so good especially when I was pregnant. Baby's heartrate was great, weight was down a little since last time, and the doctors keep telling me I'm doing great for this being my 3rd pregnancy. I left there thinking the gym and the workouts are really the best thing for me right now. Then I stopped and got an iced coffee from dunkins. lol

I've got to admit it's weird not obsessing about how I look while using the gym. I can't complain I went to the gym for x number of days and x number of minutes and my stomach still isn't flat. I can't obsess over how tight my pants are.. because they're elastic.. and they go up to my arm pits. Really though.. everyone needs these. Your pants would never feel tight again and you can strip in seconds! Plus it avoids that whole intimate moment when someone is fumbling to get your pants off and you're attempting to suck it in and get on your back asap so they don't feel the muffin top... ah hmm.. not that I would ever.. nope.. ok maybe.. It may explain this whole pregnancy thing. Heck I can't even obsess over my thighs and calves at this point.. because I need a mirror to see them and well when I look at a mirror I'm too shocked by the size of my stomach to notice. Instead I have to focus on other things. Like sexy blood pressure, not waddling, and not passing out on the couch every night like a beached whale. Not that I could.. toddlers seem to sense weakness and attack at that moment with elbows and knees with demands of snuggles disguising their real mission of pummeling you and slobbering all over your forehead while you squeal.

I did attempt to talk the doctor into going to the hospital with me yesterday but he had some silly excuse about me not being in labor. Like that should stop us. Oh well.. seeing as there is no name, the baby clothes are still in a box, and I just remembered I have to buy new pump parts.. oh and move the twin bed upstairs to make room in little man's room for all his toys that aren't baby friendly.. I should do laundry.. or maybe pack a bag for the hospital. Huh.. 16 days left to get my act together. I do have a box of diapers.. Crap.. I have to find little man's carseat and make sure it isn't expired! *smacking head* Maybe I need to post a want ad for an assistant..with little to no pay.
