I'm getting closer to the day of the bar exam and now I'm getting nervous! I haven't been able to study as much , as it doesn't fit in well with my nap schedule. Which is just about all day. When I'm not working of course! Good thing I've already got one bar membership under my belt. This would be a lot more urgent if my career depended on it :) Oh yeah, I'm STILL waiting on an answer for my maternity leave proposal. I'm pretty sure it will be approved but I'd like to have written confirmation. What? Its the lawyer in me. And one more thing, I cleaned my office today (you know, just to get a bit more organized) and what do I hear? "What do they call this - nesting?" I reply, "No, I think they call it cleaning up one's office". I'm pretty funny for a pregnant lady, donchathink?
I've been feeling pretty well and take walks religiously around lunch time every day...weather permitting. Because I am not yet showing, I don't exactly feel pregnant. I actually have to read the "week-by-week" books and have a look at my ultrasound pictures to remind myself. As a result, I totally forget to sleep on my side at night. I wake up every couple hours to find myself - you guessed it - flat on my belly. I better get a body pillow for a little assistance.
My adorable little fetus is busy with thumb sucking, toe wiggling, and (not so cute but equally amazing) making urine and breathing amniotic fluid as the liver, kidneys and spleen continue to develop. Lanugo (thin, downy hair) is growing all over the body for warmth.
