Hello again, Journal and sweet Journal Readers! I am so sorry I haven't posted in such a long time. I guess third trimester has just been catching up to me! So much fatigue, it's incredible. Oh, and a dab of nausea, too -- so much fun!
Today Tim and I went baby shopping! It was fun, and very tiring! People were right when they told me to get it all done by 6 months -- wish I would've listened! We were only gone for about 4 hours (and 2 of that was driving time) but I was still exhausted when we got home.
This made me laugh because it's been 6 WEEKS since I've seen them, I haven't had my GD test ordered (which they would've had to do at my 24 week appointment), and they never scheduled me to be seen twice a week since I entered the third trimester. And it's just NOW occurring to them to call me?
House on market, applying for civilian jobs, moving... Gah, the thought of all that stress makes me want to vomit! That's just so many unknowns, and I really like to plan stuff out. It's hard for me to know that I have absolutely no control over how all this is going to pan out.
I am so hungry right now, it's not even funny! I've got french fries cooking (don't ask, it's been my latest craving) and decided to hop on my journals.
Last night I went to a meeting group here in my town for moms and preggos. It was nice to get out and meet people who had kids, and knew what I was experiencing. They were all really sweet. There was a lady there who had a 14-month old daughter, and she was THE cutest thing!
I just know everything is going to be so much more amazing with a baby -- the first time he experiences anything, and we'll get to be there with him and show him all of the joyous things in life. I am feeling so very blessed right now.
As we get closer to the birth, I find myself getting more nervous. It's not so much an "I can't do this" feeling as it is a fear of the unknown. It's just a totally new situation, and although videos and pictures can give you an *idea* of what it might be like, they can never fully prepare you.
I told him there are just some things you don't say to a pregnant woman! Good grief, that irritated me, but it also made me a little sad for her. You've got to be pretty thick-headed to not see that you're being that rude!
I don't think I posted in here (darn preggo memory, I can't remember for sure) about our whole Bradley instructor saga. We were being taught by this lady who lives right across the street from us. We were excited about that since we were her only students...
