I'm still plugging away with swimming and yoga, because exercise is my Prozac, but much of the time I am really, really lazy and tired...did you know being pregnant (first and third trimester, anyway) is like having mono? I had deja vu and realized I was flashing back to that time.

I think my body is transferring iron to E now and that's why I'm so tired. The doctor said it was normal. I think it's the equivalent of giving blood 3-4 times or something.

I finished knitting a white sock with red hearts on it, which I will try to photograph when the laziness fades (although I might just put up a pic of the second sock, when I'm done with that! Because the second sock always comes out better).

I met the most affectionate cat in the world. Correction: I met her a while ago, but she lived in a watch repair shop where you had to be buzzed in *and* out. It creeped me out that the watch repairman could keep you there against your will (not that he did, he seems nice enough). It's just the principle of the thing.

Anyway, now it's a combined barber shop/watch repair shop. The black cat seems to have been renovated out of the picture (I hope he's just hiding in the back) but the gray cat is very much in evidence. She purrs so loudly and enthusiastically, it's like an outboard motor...and she rubs her head all over your arms. I saw her eyeing my lap speculatively, but she rightly concluded that there's not enough lap there for her. There's a big basketball in the way!

I wonder what Rainer would think about your non-existant lap. :P

Are you still able to do most of the yoga poses? I guess the handstand pose that you posted a pic of once is out of the question at this point. ;)

OH MY GOODNESS! You're pregnant!!! (Dang, I've been away from Blogland TOO long.)

I'm soooo happy and excited for you, beautiful soon-to-be Mommy Bearette! When are you due? I can't wait! Take good care of yourself and your baby. I'll be praying for you smooth and safe delivery. =)

Roxanne - yup, headstand is out of the question ;) I've been doing a prenatal yoga DVD...done it so many times that I can practically predict what the teacher says before she says it :) But hey, it gets the job done. It's hard to see Rainer these days...not only because he's in Brooklyn, but also because the train to get there is broken down every weekend! I think they're doing repairs on it to "improve service." Oy.

Irene - yes, it's been a while! Thank you :) Starting to get freaked out at the thought of delivery, so all well wishes are welcome :)

Poor kitty...

Next time, bsby E will still be in the way, but in a different way--more lap but no free hands.

I'm thinking E stands for something Norse, meaning "Eternal ruler," and a red-haired namesake found Iceland.

If not, it has to be Edison!

Bearette24 said...

Duncan/BC - you are right -- about the eternal ruler, not Edison ;)

Irene - I forgot to answer your question! June 10 :)

You need to start taking your camera with you so when you see these little furry am-in-als, you can take photos of them to satisfy me and my curiosity! It's all about me you know. ; )

Yeah, I need to get a smaller camera!
