Pregnant Boredom plus...

Boredom
So lately I find myself utterly bored! Yep over 7 months pregnant and bored! I wonder if this is my pregnant dilemma. I don't get nausea nor other common pregnant predicaments but I seem to find myself in moments of unfathomable boredom! It's really strange but I guess I might as well dwell in this sensation until pepe arrives and I'll be wondering when I had the time to be bored! I've been reading alot of novels and find TV boring. I've just read a Kate Atkinson novel for the first time and it's fantastic. Now I'm scrambling to find one more of hers so I can get lost in it. 

Plans
My son has two days holiday from kindy so tomorrow we're going to spend our afternoon at the beach. I'm looking forward to having a swim in the sea but not the sun exposure(mindful of sunspots and all)!

Treats
Today I came home and hubby showed me more mangoes and avocados that a friend of ours brought back from Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania. Hubby went there last week and he came back with a bag of them on Valentines Day and I had been indulging on them for the past two weeks. When he found out our friend was going there this week he asked if he could bring some back this week so I'm one happy camper. The mangoes are so sweet like those in Samoa and so fresh they sure beat the ones we buy from the supermarket that were plucked from the trees way too early. The avocados also are rich in taste unlike the supermarket ones! I'm blessed and God bless the hubby for his thoughtfulness and our friend for bringing more back:)

Moe Time
So we've finally sorted out our 4 year old's sleeping routine in time for pepe's arrival. Before, it was a fight to put him to bed but after persistence and discipline since we got back, now he can go to sleep on his own after reading him bedtime stories. It's just been fantastic. He still crawls into our bed at the early hours of the morning which I don't mind one bit. He's still my pepe so will keep on enjoying the cuddles.

A Pregnant Update

I'm now past my seventh month so not long to go before a wee loud person joins this household! I've been enjoying my morning walks on the beach breathing in that morning air from the ocean while the weather is fantastic. Two weeks ago I started pregnant yoga classes. I love yoga generally and am glad I found a good class this time again to join. The instructor is fantastic and is a midwife as well so she knows her stuff. I still find it so weird to be in a room full of pregnant women though! Anyway so I've been enjoying the stretching and waking up with leg muscle pains from some of the stretches which has been very invigorating. Last week however I found myself fighting back laughter(the fob in me at play here) when the instructor had us on our backs holding our legs and then telling us to breathe deeply and exercise the vaginal area. Like squeeze and let go, squeeze and let go. All I could think of was that I was going to break wind plus "am I really being told to exercise my vagina!! in a class." I think all ya fobs that read this will see it the way I did! Just too funny. We did it again this morning and I swear I was going to laugh out loud. Anyway luckily I didn't and once again walked out feeling fantastic.
Last week on one of my beach walks I got cat whistled at. I found it rather disgusting and disturbing! Anyway I'm excited to see our little baby and in the meantime our four year old is very excited also and telling me all the ways he'll help me with his little brother/sister. However it's not "I'll help you change the nappies" anymore...it's "you can change the dirty nappy mummy and I'll put on the clean nappy!!" And I've slowly started to sort things out for pepe.
