I’m referring to the cravings… never before during this pregnancy have I had such a strong craving and it’s driving me nuts to the point where I’d rather have it and risk running to the (broken) loo how many times a night than not have it and wake up dreaming about it…
Ice water. Not just cold water, ICE WATER. Hubby got up during the night to go get me a fat glass full of ice water so I could just shut up! I told him he must really love me. He chuckles and says “Ja I do, but actually I’m just trying to stop your moaning.” Hahaha. Chop. And this morning I thought to look in the freezer at work, to see if maybe there’s ice… and there it was, a whole fat bag of it. I now have a 500 ml beermug of ice water sitting on my desk. I’m wolfing down my cornflakes as fast as I can to just get to that water… drooooool.
Cravings are crazy… seriaaaaas!!
Brother Dear is dropping off SIL at about 09:00 here so that we can go to Life’s Miracle UIF Services to hand in our UIF paperwork. Hopefully everthing is in order and there will be no hiccups. I sent Brother Dear some reading material on the birth centre that he can print and take home to SIL; let’s hope he did!
Urgh the toilet is completely f*cked. Hubby put down a bucket full of water and told me that if I need to pee during the night, I must just then pour water down the toilet, it will create a flush mechanism. It’s a miracle that I remembered to do it, but I asked him to please fix the damn toilet this afternoon, before he disappears tomorrow for the bachelors and I only see him on Sunday. The toilet stinks already of urine, and for me to struggle down the stairs in the middle of the night still highly deur die kak is just gonna spell trouble. I’ve been known to donner down stairs while still half asleep.
It was so hot last night and sure enough, as we’re lying in the dark complaining about the heat, the wind picks up and we see lightning flashes and hear thunder… Oh boy, oh boy!! Rain!!! And sadly… all those few sprinkles did AGAIN was make my car look like it’s never been washed in its life… I was so disgusted. When is it going to rain???? And the neighbour’s dog’s yapping seems to be activated by thunder and wind, cos he was yapping all the way until Neighbour yanked open a window at 00:41 this morning and shouted at the dogs to shut up… didn’t help, it just aggravated the situation. I could hear him jumping out of bed and stomping down the stairs, flinging open the gate and slide door and all of a sudden all was quiet. Think he let them in…
My feet were so horrendously swollen last night that my toes didn’t touch ground. So Hubby shoved extra couch cushions under them and eventually it began to have an effect. But once I had to put my feet them back down on the ground, it started up again. Drat.
Anyhoo, it’s Friday! Yay! Y’all have a great day and a lovely weekend!
