Hyperactive in the Womb! And Teenager Successes!

July 13, 2009

Bunky has been so active today that I’m not entirely sure he’s rested at all. We got up at 6 a.m. and he was happily obliging his father with palpable kicks… that have continued all day. Even now, it’s like popcorn going off in my belly. I can’t get over it–I really don’t remember my first son being this active, but… 17 years is a long time to remember much of anything I didn’t write down. (Part of the reason I blog as much as I do.)

But a weird thing happened at work today. One of the co-workers from the other side of the building came round the corner and gasped when she saw me. “You look so skinny!” she exclaimed. “Is there something you need to tell us?”

Some days I show, some days I don’t. I am just heavy-set-but-big-boned enough that I still just look plump in most clothes, but anything cut for maternity makes me look more maternal.

I just feel like a freak show, though. The attention I get kills me. I’m not sure what I expected (ha!) but it’s been very difficult to enjoy this pregnancy

But on a totally different note, Elder Son made his debut today on the radio, at the college station at the university where I’m working on my master’s. He came off the air absolutely beaming, and filled with enthusiasm for the medium. Since I spent 10 years as a journalist and 4 as a club DJ, I’m completely squee about the idea of him following in my footsteps, but on radio–but even more so after seeing him so full of joy. We finally have almost everything together to enroll him in the new high school, and I’m finally starting to feel optimistic that things are going to work out just fine.

If I could just get all the bills caught up…
