Peapod stuff & Week 33 updates

I was really cool, infact excited all this while about the changes coming up but since last week, thinking about it makes me very very nervous. I am all the time reciting Psalms 121 and sometimes I just can't even get past the first line. I am not so much worried about the delivery as much about everything that will precede it. My health, the baby, the peapod's admissions, managing the whole family circus, pulling this whole thing off without loosing my nerves. Since I am so used to being in control of things, being in bed with restricted mobility is like pulling my life plug. I know, I should just trust others in the household to takeover and step back. Maybe I will(like I have a choice) but cant help getting paranoid.

There is this whole lot of things that I did love to do considering it would be Christmas time when the baby arrives and I want it to be special for all of us. Ofcourse blame the nesting instinct that has kicked in as well. I am arranging & re-arranging the house in my head. Also, considering the fact that I will be home for atleast 4-6 months, I want a beautiful house to live in. So far its been just necessities and a tidy & warm place to return to at the end of a day. Both my sisters dropped in tons of baby stuff that were not used or hardly used and I sorted all that I wanted and put away a whole lot as well. The hospital bag is ready. The peapod knows that the baby will arrive in December and seems as excited as me. The father seems to be in deep thoughts all the time, so I don't know if the thoughtfulness comes from the excitement or he is gearing himself for the avalanche that is to follow.

The Jellybean went back to Baroda. I did not see the Peapod enough over the 3 weeks, the Jellybean was here. Every evening when I landed at mom's place to pick her up at 7-7:30, she wasn't willing to come. The moment she hears me ring the bell, she was already yelling even before the door opened to let me know she wasn't coming and I can go. At about 8-8:30 my sister used to drop her but she wouldn't come alone, she would force the Jellybean to come along or the jellybean would tag along on the pretext that she has to drop her at our doorstep, and once she is here, the peapod wouldn't let the jellybean go. My sister would then go back and then come back around 9:30ish to pick her up. Thank God we just live 2 blocks apart from my Mom's place. After the jellybean leaves, finally we have time for one super tantrum, a little throw and mess the house or cry for no specific reason or some insanely impossible stuff like she needs 10 llamas (blame me for the books I read her) ...RIGHT NOW . Finally we used to get to bed by 10:30-11ish. The 2 weren't even all lovey-dovey all the time but they just had to be togather every waking moment possible.

Some weird things the peapod does, she reads her books upside down and she writes right to left. Like if she has to draw an 'H' the right most straight line comes first then the left one and then the sleeping line goes from right to left. She even writes her 'F' like its mirror image at times. I think she gets this from watching us read/write by sitting across her. I think we have comfortably managed to mess it all up. Off late, she questions everything and it doesn't end with an honest answer to the said question, the answer only leads to an another question and then an another untill I put up my hands and surrender to her on my knees untill she proclaims Mumma does not know anything with tightly closed eyes with additional emphasis on "does not know anything".(Mamma(ky) onnumm ariyethilla). The other hit thing around is asking me when something would happen and in peapod's world, she has to know how many times she needs to sleep and wake up before its saturday or how many times she needs to sleep and wakeup before the Jellybean comes or for any other peapod look-forwards. There are days when she gets all excited and starts me on when the baby is coming. Can you imagine my distress as she goes,
pp: When will the baby come?
Me: December
pp: so if I sleep and wake up then what happens?
Me: you go to school
pp: and if I sleep and wake up again then what happens?
Me: you go to school
pp: and if I sleep and wake up again then what happens?
Me: we all have a holiday
pp: and if I sleep and wake up again then what happens?
Me: Then we go to church
pp: and if I sleep and wake up again then what happens?

after we have covered about 2 weeks, I just say and then the baby will come. She gushes all excited and gets back to her stuff. She knows her numbers, weekdays and months but none of that is of any practical use to me when it comes to peapod's self-devised counting methodology.

Week 33 is on. My lower back is aching. Sitting, standing and lying down are all equally uncomfortable and the worse is when moving from one state to an another. I feel embarassed waddling around in office like a penguin on ice, dragging my feet and my whole self around. An another 45-50 days to go. Uff .... Its not even like I am all set to go into labor today or even a week down the line but still.

Loved reading this update! Peapod sounds adorable - growing up! Becoming big sister very soon - such an exciting time. She's going to be a great big sister.

Rohini said...

Hang in there. Just a few more weeks to go...

Loved the conversation. Get ready for endless daily questions on when the baby will walk, talk, eat chocolate, read books, go to restaurants, play with sand toys and every other conceivable thing under the sun :)

What a conversation :D! Is there ever a dull moment with Peapod and Jellybean?
