Still A Kid At Heart

Today I'm 33 weeks pregnant! This is a huge milestone in light of all that has happened in the last few days and while I'm celebrating week 33 in the hospital and not at home...I am so very very grateful to have reached this milestone. 

An update ~ We had an ultrasound yesterday. Biophysical profile and cervix check. The good looks great. The tech switched over to 3D to give us a view of his sweet little face. The bad cervix in now under 1.5. This was not the news I was hoping to hear but the encouraging part is that I haven't dilated anymore. Yeah for small victories. I'll gladly take what I can get. 

The plan today is to monitor the contractions, which I'm happy to report have spaced out. The OB team will come in later today and see how the day has gone. Depending on that we'll make a decision on going home or not. My OB doesn't think that will happen but I guess we will just have to wait and see. 

As you can imagine...I have a great deal of time on my hands. I'm trying to keep myself distracted (thank you to Netflix for helping with that) and to just relax. There is nothing that I can do to change the situation so I might as well make the best of it! 

With the arrival of my son and the joys of childhood that come along with that, I was laying here reflecting on why I'm still a kid at heart and this is what I've come up with...

- I not-so-secretly want a kids menu at restaurants.
- I never pass up an opportunity to pop bubble wrap.
- or hit a piƱata.
- I don't mess with dark basements. They are scary! 
- I sometimes play "the floor is hot lava" when I'm alone.
- I  prefer to drink everything out of a crazy straw and I would probably eat more cereal if they still came with toys.

- I secretly want to jump in puddles.
- Building a pillow fort is something I often think about.
- I love sleeping in and taking naps while wearing footsie pajamas and wrapping myself up in a blanket burrito.

What makes you feel like a kid at heart? 

Pretty rainbow outside my hospital room window. 


  1. Hang in there Janet and baby! I hope you can squeeze in a few more weeks.

    And, when you get home, please please stay away from the WD40- that stuff has nasty effects on human (and birds and bees) health... its really not nice stuff.

  2. Yay for 33 weeks! Your son is going to be perfect :)

  3. Think about the fun you will have eating ice cream together soon ! Messy ! : )

  4. You need to add taking naps to your list!!!!

  5. I'm so glad to hear he's still hanging out inside and continues to do well! You are going to be such a fun mama-- especially for a little BOY! Lots of fort building, indoor dodgeball and squirt gun fights in your future :) it's the best!

  6. So glad he's still tucked in tight and that the hospital is taking good care of you!!!

  7. I just love you... HOORAY for 33 weeks and further baking! And HOORAY for being a kid at heart, because it will make you an awesome parent. I love that you play "the floor is hot lava." My short list... playing memory, having one-woman silly 80s dance parties when I'm alone, having a collection of picture books that started well before I started trying for a baby and before I became a teacher (although not so many picture books in 8th grade, even though I use them anyway at least three times per year). I love this post... keep on baking, baby boy!

  8. I've been thinking about you and am glad to hear that baby boy is doing well INSIDE! I'll continue to say my little prayers that he stays there for awhile:)

  9. 33 Weeks is good stuff!!! Keep him cooking! You're doing a great job! Your "kid heart" is going to make you a great mommy!!

  10. Congrats on 33 weeks!! Yay! xoxo
