"Before you, Bella, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars, points of light and reason. ...And then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn’t see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason, for anything."

What are you reading (23)?

It's Monday! What are you reading this week? is a weekly event now hosted by One Persons Journey Through a World Of Books. It's helpful way to take a look at what you have read and what you want to read!

It's been a few weeks since a last posted.  Life has been busy busy busy!!  The holidays were wonderful but draining.  I'm now 34 weeks pregnant with less than 6 weeks to go...I'm miserable.  I know longer remember what it feels like to sleep for eight hours straight without getting up to go to the bathroom four times a night.  Plus, I've watched so much late night TV because I can't sleep I'm pretty sure I'm going to turn into an infomerical. 

As for baby, I'm giving birth to a large ham :).  We went for another ultrasound on Wednesday and baby was measuring at 36 weeks and 6 days...3 weeks ahead of schedule.  He's 6 lbs 9 oz according to the ultrasound and growing rapidly.  The doctors are thinking C-Section if he continues to grow because they worry about crushing his shoulders as he travels through the birth canal.  I've been having Braxton Hicks on and off all weekend, and some cramping.  I'm not sure if I'll make it long enough for a C Section...lol :)  I also passed my 3 hour glucose test so no gestational diabetes for me...yay!!!

I'm ready to have this baby and looking forward to the new year.  I'm looking at different challenges, none of which I'll probably complete with a newborn but its still exciting.  There's so many motivational ones out there, and I have so many books I can't wait to read!

As for these past few weeks, I read one book in between the Christmas shopping and family visiting.  I finished Size 12 is Not Fat by Meg Cabot which I loved, and I've been working on Size 14 is Not Fat Either.  I haven't read a lot of Meg Cabot and I'm really enjoying her!

I'm not making any reading goals for the next week, because I don't know what the week holds!  Happy reading everyone and enjoy your new year!!

I've been wanting to read some Meg Cabot too, she seems to have a great sense of humor and everyone likes her books! Can't wait to read your reviews :)

I'll cross my fingers that the remaining weeks in your pregnancy go quickly, I can only imagine how you're feeling at this point!

Have a great week! Mine is at:

That baby will be here soon!

Those are my favorite Meg Cabot books. I can empathize with the getting up 4 times a night even though I don't have the excuse of being pregnant. Old age does that too. Happy reading!

You must be getting very excited. I had three preemies and would have been thrilled to make it to 34 weeks. I do recall being uncomfortable, even now 18 years later, it really does seem like yesterday. Enjoy this time. Have a wonderful week.

I wish you all the best with the birth of your baby. This is a very exciting time for you and I am also glad to hear your glucose test was negative for diabetes. Get use to the lack of sleep, because it will be a while till you get those eight hours back again.

Have a great week.

Ooh, I do recall the weeks leading up to the births...I had four, and my babies tended to come late! My fourth was a C-section, after three "natural" births (I use the term loosely).

Good luck, and when it's over, you really do forget MOST of it...LOL

I'm adding Meg Cabot books to my list, as they weren't around when I was that age, and the titles sound enticing.

Here's my Monday:

I like those Meg Cabot books too. Have a great week.

Julie said...

Oh my gosh! Your ham (I mean baby) will be here before you know it .. and you'll spend so much time just staring at him that .. well, reading and everything else will just fall by the wayside for a while! Meg Cabot is a good way to keep your mind off everything for a while!

I'm sure your little ham will be here before you know it :) In the meantime, enjoy your books!
