36 weeks! Sorry this one is a little late ~

  • Started weekly appointments!
  • Our home visit is this week and we’ll be getting our delivery pack for the big day!
  • I’ve started having contractions - nothing timeable, but they’re very distinctly uncomfortable compared to the typical BH contractions I’ve been having the last few months. Lots of pressure, so perhaps a sign that this will be my first baby under 41 weeks gestation?? We’ll see.
  • At my last appointment we discussed going over my due date and my current level of discomfort and briefly touched on the possibility of a membrane sweep at my 38 week appointment. I’m about 98% sure we’re going to go through with that. 
  • We’ve got the bases covered for the birth all set to go. I bought a butt load of towels today and put our waterproof mattress pad on the bed yesterday (once bitten; twice shy) and I’m pretty sure I’m not forgetting anything. But I’ll go over that with my midwife later this week. 
  • I’ve become anemic, which kinda blows but I’m not surprised. I haven’t been eating much meat lately, and I’m mostly craving carbs and fruit. My midwife recommended a supplement to help boost my iron over the next couple weeks.
  • I have acid reflux like no body’s business. It’s horrible and I hate it. 
  • I had to take my wedding ring off this week because my fingers are just too puffed up.
  • I’ve put on another 10 pounds, so I’m now 21 pounds up from my pre-pregnancy weight. Not too shabby.
  • While I’m a bit nervous about giving birth (mostly because I’m scared my mom will find out and pester me, or just about how the boys will deal with it) I’m really really excited about it. I feel ready. 
  • I can’t believe she’s due in less than a month, honestly. As hellish as this pregnancy has been, I’ve loved it. A part of me will always love and miss carrying a little life in my belly, but a bigger part of me is really looking forward to this next great adventure. 

Aaron Joseph Purmort was well aware that his time was almost up when he decided to work with his wife to write the ultimate obituary. Dying from brain cancer, Purmort decided to leave the world and his infant son a handful of thoughts that would be well above and beyond the usual story of someone who is survived by their family and was a good person who enjoyed skeeball. The fact that Purmort’s obituary started out with the revelation that he’d once been bitten by a radioactive spider kind of sets the tone for the entire rest of the piece.

The body of his obituary explains who he was, where he went to school, what he did, and who his family was (including a nod to his first wife, Gwen Stefani). The clincher comes at the end, when he lists his son in the line “He is survived by current wife Nora and their son Ralph, who will grow up to avenge his father’s untimely death.”

i feel like being a werewolf is a good metaphor for past abuse because once youre bitten by the wolf it affects your whole being

and somtimes you become the wolf no matter how badly you dont want to or try to stop the cycle

Dream Girl

This dorky princess that
Is clever and sharp as a tack
Just painted my scene black
To set my heart on one track

She’s a quick map to
Cheap laughs we kiss through
And retract back into
Her eyes that only ring true

Once bitten twice shy
Without us knowing why
She is the sun, moon and sky
And I’m the apple of her eye

A future understanding
Stringless but still landing
We fear for disbanding
We fear for expanding

Sedimentary memories
Time to us matters not
Smiles, hugs, charity and art
Whispers from a heavy heart

This moment’s love affair
What will be written there
Will it abide to stand and bear
I declare I do not care

The past is dead to the world
The future yet unfurled 
The present gratefully twirled
Lost inside a Dream Girl
