19 weeks. Crime scene

Crime scene: did the PIO shot myself the other night. Standing in my bathroom I slowly push in the needle. It hurts but soon over and I whip it out. HOLY COW - there is so much blood. It was like a tire that has a flat except it was my ass and it was shooting all over the wall, the cat (who was not pleased) and my lovely tile floor. Was I shocked? Well, ya, but it was kinda cool too!!

Brahms concert tomorrow (german requiem). It is 90 mins of standing which I'm not sure I can manage. I'll see tonight in the dress and if needs be I shall find a chair to park my ample arse in. I shall totally have to wing it since I am a bit shaky about some of the movements!!! Ah the blessings of singing in a 150 person choir. This week has been brutal in terms of work. I am flagging a bit now. Luckily I get to go to a conference all day tomorrow which is low stress and high possibility of snooze in chair. I shall bag it around 2 and go home to rest before the concert. LOVE IT!!

We had couples therapy today. My DH is an only child from a really quiet house. The therapist was trying to explain what the noise levels would be like. He is particularly afraid of the fighting. And we are having twins. Hahahahahahahahaha. I told him that my brother and I fought all the time, 24/7 and really enjoyed it. It's how you learn to work with people, negotiate, share, relax. It's a sign of sibling love. And he has a pair of noise cancelling headphones he can use!

I did the maths and if I go to 38 weeks my due date is August 15th. So let the count down begin!!


  1. Holy moly you still have to do PIO shots? I'm so sorry! Hope the concert goes well!

  2. OMG, I never was able to give myself a shot in the butt. You are so brave - blood and all!

    Yes, yes, by all means you must sit and not stand during the whole 90 min performance! The lemons will appreciate it!

    Oh, boy. My DH is the same as yours - he does NOT like noise. It rattles him to his core. But I figure he'll get used to it. He doesn't have a choice. Your DH must get double used to it!

    Have a great time tomorrow!

  3. PIO?! WTF is that about? I thought PIO is done between weeks 10-12. Ugh! Your DH an only child - so am I. It's one of the things that makes me very worried. I am just not used to annoying baby cry (and, yes, I do think it's VERY annoying and grating on the nerves). At least he has you and you'll have better experience on that end.

  4. I would totally get a chair/stool for the requiem. NOT cool to faint in the middle! And why not milk this pg for all it's worth?! Hope all goes well, and that is the beauty of singing the same part as 30 other people! I, on the other hand, had my first Brahms rehearsal last night, all alone on my VERY exposed part - eek! Must practice!!
