Things To Do

I have a million things to do tonight. Things that need to be done before I can go to bed and my bed is where I really want to be. I have a cold and fighting through brain fog, to accomplish my list has proved daunting. I thought if I unloaded some thoughts, maybe the fog could move a bit, allowing me to successfully check the necessary tasks at hand.
Thought one... I hate bras. They are uncomfortable. I have been wearing one for the past 15 years (late bloomer thank goodness) and I haven't got any more used to them. I am always delighted at the end of the day when I get to take it off and change into pj's. If I am ever up late and for whatever reason forget to shed my bra and realize it right before I go to bed, I am more than a little peeved. All that comfort time, gone to waste. I don't, however, want to be the only one with saggy boobs. *Correction "saggier boobs". Yes A cups can sag. Have a baby sometime. You'll see. Anyway, I was thinking, if we all stopped wearing bras, we'd all have saggy boobs and then no one would care. In fact, we might even start saying things like, "Oh gross. Did you see how high and firm her breasts were? How does she see around those puppies." Okay, if that didn't sell you, just think of all the money we'd save.

Thought two... Finding out you're not pregnant by starting your period, is the WORST! It's like all your hopes and dreams being dashed by bloodshed every month. I really hate the waiting, the build up, getting to day 28 and starting to get your hopes up, then... well you get the picture. They really need some kind of instant test. I really, really wanted a May baby and I had two shots. Oh well... now I really, really, really want a June baby, so fingers crossed, or heck, arms folded for us would be greatly appreciated. Oh and by the way, Yes we are trying again.

Thought three... Mentioning saggy boobs and periods in the same post, is not the best way to build my readership.

Thought four... Or is it???

See, and I'm so flat and saggy after 3 kids and 2 marathons, I need the bra to make my flaps of skin look like breasts at all. But I'm with you on the end of the day thing. I think that's why I change into jammies at 8 pm when the boys do.

I'm sorry to hear about your hopes being dashed this month. A May baby would have been great, but a June baby means that you'll be getting unpregnant just as summer gets into full swing. Think of how great THAT will feel. :) Having "get pregnant" thoughts for YOU (because I definitely don't want 'em).

Sorry, I find wearing a bra far more comfortable than letting the girls swing free. In fact, I even wear night bras to bed to avoid injury. Giant postpartum saggy boobs are not only sad, but they're liabilities, too.

I'm sorry you got your period. That is the absolute worst way to find out you aren't preggers; there's the major disappointment followed by the realization that now you have a week of your frickin' period, followed by starting another whole month of hoping and trying... My fingers and toes are crossed for you. xo

No opinion on the comfort of bras.

Hard to believe I will ever say 'did you see those yucky breast that were all perky and firm.'

June babies are the best. Super smart, amazingly good-looking, and humble. Trust me.

Don't be sad!

This gives River one more Mother's day with his mom all to himself.

Then, in June (fingers crossed and prayers being said), he'll get to become a big brother.

I think it's a win-win.

Also, I'm totally with you on the bras. I take them off as soon as I'm pretty sure I'm not going out again. There's got to be a more comfortable way to support boobs than elastic bands and metal clasps.

I am laughing so hard right now!! You are so great! I can relate to everything in your post...everything. It took us longer this round to get pregnant...hang in there. Now that we know you are trying we can be praying for ya!!
