Two posts in two days...not something that is likely to happen on Jellybean's blog until she arrives safe and sound...or at least that is the plan. But, I just posted on Gracie's blog and wanted to pop over here for a moment. I want to wish you all a good holiday weekend...I hope that is is safe and enjoyable for you all.
I am not sure if it's connected to the very loud noise of last night's fireworks that woke her from her nap or something else, but for the last 11 hours Beana has apparently been quite unhappy with the arrangement of things in her living quarters (a.k.a. my uterus). I am pretty sure that she has been moving furniture or ripping out walls or something of the like. I was starting to wonder if the velocity of her movement was going to pick up any time soon, as everything has been pretty gentle and mild. She has arrived. :-) But that's not really what I wanted to post about...I just posted it since I was here. :-)
I had another very random run-in with the "Are you over it yet?" lady today. There is no question for anyone who knows me that I am definitely pregnant, yet she felt compelled to ask if we were expecting again. Then she felt the need to reach out and rub my belly without permission. I wanted to punch her. She asked how things were going and then proceeded to assure me that if we were getting 'extra monitoring and special treatment' that we would undoubtedly have a different outcome this time. Again...wanted to punch her. Thought about educating her about this entire rainbow process and the general lack of guarantees in life, but decided that I really wanted to not be talking to her and all of this would just extend the conversation. Thankfully, she was on a mission and the conversation was limited to less than 5 minutes...but she made sure to assure me that she would be watching my husband's FB announcements for good pregnancy news and our birth announcement. Something for us to look forward to. :-/
When I was pregnant with Gracie, I am pretty sure that no one touched my belly without permission. This lady is the 2nd person to do it in the last 24 hours...and the other person was a complete stranger. I just simply cannot imagine walking up to someone I have never seen or met before and laying hands on their belly. Weird.
