So I figured out why my MIL & I do not get along as well as she would like. We communicate differently. She is into idle chatter & I am to the point. It happened again yesterday. I decided to call her to tell her about the ultrasound. By the time I was able to hang up I heard about her response to a wedding invitation near the due date & about a wedding or two from the past & other stuff. (BTW Her social calendar rivals that of any head of state.) By the time, she got onto the wedding subject, all I could think of was, "I don't care if you were at table 200 or not..." No I am not kidding - 200+ tables times an average of 8 people per table...
Which segways nicely into the hospital tour. As a caveat, I was bone tired & still thinking far too much on the untrasound... This will be a bit snarky...
a. it started a bit late (no biggie).
b. some people arrived even later (no biggie).
c. the guide pretty much started over for the latecomers (IRRITATING considering that the tour started late to begin with...)
d. too much idle chatter - like when we were in the mother/baby unit she pointed out the closet - because we will be using coats pretty soon, "Although it has been warm the past couple of days." That should not bug me, but it does. We all know that it has been warm & the unseasonable warm weather does not have one thing to do with a hospital tour... (Especially when I was already tired...)
I've mentioned the untrasound twice now, haven't I? Don't tell anyone, but I know the answer to the $64,000 question. (If you know the reference, jump up & down like a fool...) I am not going to tell you the answer... :o) But there are several people who I would prefer not know that I know the answer as well... BTW My husband quite enjoys being cryptic when telling me about almost anything. For example, the official answer to where we are registered is "The Bureau of Prining & Engraving" and we prefer to get post masters instead of presidents. (The cryptic part - figuring out the last bit - who was a post master & is on US currency.) I gave him a liberal dose of his own medicine while he tried to get the answer to the $64,000 question out of me. :o)
The baby is fine, but in a breech position. This will most likely move my birth plan from 100% natural to planned caesarean... But that may be speculation on my part - I see the doctor next week.
I guess waking at 3 is becoming closer to normal for me. I usually just stay in bed, but to day I got up got cleaned up & fed then plopped on the couch with 2 cats to watch the news. (I leave the house at about 6 for work.) Looks like we will be getting Pittsburgh's weather soon, so I can "plan" to make butter nut squash soup. :o)
