It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Well, not really (it’s very much a gloomy, dark autumn day, not a bright and crisp December afternoon), but about half the Christmas gifts I ordered arrived from Amazon, so I figured I might as well wrap them now. There are more on the way, and it certainly feels good to be ticking so many things off the list before the baby gets here!
I still haven’t been struck with any magical insight as to when the baby will get here. I’ve been feeling nauseated since we went out for brunch, and I only had scrambled eggs and an English muffin with peanut butter (so it’s not like I ate too much). Sometimes I get queasy after eating at restaurants if the food is too greasy, but I usually shake it pretty quickly. The wise internet has a lot of anecdotal evidence that nausea can signal impending labor — or not. So I’ll just keep sitting tight.
