Because, Why Not?

Hello? Is there anyone out there? Don’t want to show yourself? That’s cool, I’m quite experienced in the art of talking to myself. It’s not something to brag about though…

I haven’t the slightest clue what brought me here after months…MONTHS! Poor neglected blog that no one gives two figs about. I stopped writing, stopped getting readers, stopped caring…sort of. Had nothing to say anymore. But today I came back here and remembered how much fun I had with this in the beginning. I loved interacting with all you internet strangers. This is not to say I’m back. But I thought I’d give at least one more life update, because, why not? Who’s gonna stop me?

I am now 34 weeks pregnant, with a baby girl. I can’t believe how quickly these 8 months have gone. I still feel like I only JUST announced my pregnancy. Still haven’t quite wrapped my head around the fact that I’m gonna be a mom…a MOM! *Deep breath* Holy shit, that’s a scary thought! I haven’t so much as held a baby in SO MANY YEARS, I can’t even tell you. I’m afraid that when they hand her to me, I’m gonna feel completely clueless. But hopefully that whole mother’s instinct thing is real, and everything will just click, and I won’t be a total dummy.

On the plus side, I already love her, so that’s a start, right? At the end of the day, no one is born knowing how to be a mom. Sure, some people have experience, say, with changing diapers, but I’ll get there! I’m trying not to stress about how quickly time is going, though it’s hard not to. Still need to find a pediatrician, finish buying baby gear, and get the nursery together. I hope we get a chance to paint her room between this weekend and next. I think it’ll feel more real once we have a room that LOOKS like it’s meant for a baby, rather than the randomness that it is now. We shall see.

So yeah, I’m here, still pregnant, super uncomfortable, but otherwise okay. If you’re out there, I hope all is well with you too. And if no one’s reading this, well then…you suck. πŸ™‚

Add yours

  1. You’re going to be fine don’t be stressing instinct does take over and you have the love and support of your parents today and always. You’re going to be an amazing mom and I love you way more then words can express.

  2. I so glad to hear your doing well with the baby coming soon. I know my opinion doesn’t mean much but I have to say, you look more beautiful than ever just like a new mom should look. You may have been ignoring your blog of late but before too long you’ll have so much to write about it’ll scare you. Hope the remainder of the pregnancy goes well and I look forward to seeing the little Lily after she arrives. Enjoy this precious time.

  3. I’m super duper excited to see a post from you, Lily! To be honest I meant to comment on your last one, but I’d been off WordPress myself for so long, I couldn’t figure out how to log in. I concur with the above that you look beautiful as a mom-to-be and I am sure you’ll be an excellent. She can have every day of those first few years she couldn’t remember herself enshrined in blogdom, if you show wished. πŸ˜‰

      1. You inspired me! So what if it took another three weeks, lol, I posted also. You’re to be forgiven for being just a *little* busy these days πŸ™‚

  4. You love your baby! I won’t tell you that you have no idea, but you have no idea. You’ll be a good mom… You haven’t drop or otherwise injured anyone else’s baby have you?

  5. Yay, Lily’s back! (for now haha) This blogging thing really does tend to drag a little after you’ve been doing it a while so I totally get it. But I’m glad you still felt compelled to update the few of us who are still hanging out (even if we don’t necessarily write as often anymore, which is definitely the case with me) since it’s always nice to hear from old blogging friends. You look fantastic and don’t stress, just keep yourself healthy and as comfortable as possible. πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you! Yup, for NOW lol. I don’t know if I’ll ever post regularly, or even read as regularly as I used to. But it is nice the few times I’m back to see some familiar faces…well not faces but you know what I mean. πŸ™‚

  6. Oh my gosh, Lilianita! You are totally adorable!!! That baby bump suits you well. How very exciting that your pregnancy is going well and that you are not too nervous about knowing what to do because you are right, a lot of it just comes to you and even if you put the diaper on backwards, it will be okay. Please come back and post pics of the baby room when it’s all done! Stay well! πŸ™‚

    1. Lol, gracias! I love my bump. Gonna be sad once the baby is out and I’m left with rolls! Lol. Thanks, I know it’ll all slowly come to me and I won’t totally suck at this parenting thing lol. I’ll try to update more soon. πŸ™‚

  7. I’ve been out of blog land, too! I’m 33 weeks pregnant with another boy! You look great and DO NOT WORRY. Every mom feels like she doesn’t quite know what she’s doing at first. You will be great and figure it out as you go along. Hoping the rest of your pregnancy is comfortable & stress free!
