Getting ready for baby...

I'm currently +/-6 weeks from my due date. Baby is due April 8th, and I honestly am really ready to be over the whole pregnant thing. Everyone takes cute pictures of themselves with their cute little baby bumps...not me. I have a few photos, but that's it. My husband took one of me over the weekend and between the wind and the fact that I had pulled up my hoodie, I honest to goodness look like a very fat penguin... Seriously...

I've been going through my horse things to sell off some stuff. I "think" I sold my saddle on Sunday. She took it on trial, and will let me know by tomorrow if it works. I think it's only fair that they get a chance to try it out because I would want the same chance before dropping $1,000 on a saddle. I "could" hold onto it, but if we're moving to Alaska, I don't want to pay to ship it up there, and then what? It's going to sit around and collect dust. There isn't exactly a ton of opportunity for riding that I can find. I won't be buying a horse in Alaska, I know that much.

Other news, in true Denali mom style, I got knocked over on February 13th by a friend's son and popped my ankle. They did x-rays that night, but it was so swollen that nothing would show up. I was on crutches for a week, and now I am in a walking boot for 5 more weeks. They didn't want to do more x-rays to check for a break, and said that it's not displaced if it is broken, so just wear the book. I asked about not wearing the boot and the doctor offered to cast it for me....never mind, I'll wear the boot. So much for a second opinion.

Oh wow, that sucks about your ankle.... What if it's not broken? It would seem kind of dumb to wear a boot and have to rehab your ankle if it's just a sprain..... why can't they x-ray it again? Because of the baby? Anyway, sorry it happened. I hope you aren't in pain.

I'm looking forward to baby pictures! I hope the last six weeks goes quickly for you. :D

What's this about Alaska??? Did I miss something? That sounds interesting!

Sorry about your ankle, and sorry about being "great with child." The last month is very wearing, for sure. I hope all goes smoothly for you with the delivery and yes, we want photos!!!

Um. To clarify RiderWriter's comment. Please do not post photos of the delivery. I cannot imagine a sane person wanting to see that. For any reason.

And I like you. ;)

Hang in there. The six weeks will suck like crazy, but they'll probably seem easy compared to actually having a child. Is that backwards? Ooops.
