Darn, about the brownies! I could so have done with a couple (dozen) of those today. Managed to get another chapter revised AND had DH test me some so even though I was feeling horribly depressed it was a good day for studying. Let's hope I can keep it up for the rest of the week. My exam is on Thurs.
So ms Sophie has decided to be in my pelvis now which really hurts and makes walking really difficult. Well everything really difficult. So Im thinking that if she doesnt move back up and the pain doesnt go away by tomorrow Im going to call. Its still from Saturday. So idk what to do. She is still really active so no issues there. Just ALOT of pain and pressure. Its like a few months back and she was like this for a week or so and moved again. I just hope it doesnt mean she is getting ready to come way early.
Sorry I haven't been on in a few days ladies. My laptop chose to die (or so we thought) on Thursday during school. Thankfully, it was actually only the charger that died, so I ordered a new one today. Yay! Much cheaper!
My niece moved out last night, so now I'm trying to move my DS to his new room (her old room) and get what is to be the nursery ready and sorted so I can figure out what we even need still. Idk what we even have, or what my SIL has. Its nuts.
DH is still job-hunting. I applied for pregnancy medicaid, so hopefully that all goes through because there is no way in this world we can afford this otherwise. W/o pg medicaid we will be waaaayyyyy over our heads in debt b/c of the high-risk status and probably NICU stay on top of the c-sec, and all that comes with any reg birth. I have a dr appt with a u/s on Wednesday with the high-risk dr. I learned my high-risk, MFM dr does take medicaid afterall (WooHoo!!!!) so I don't have to change from her, and while I can't stay with the same reg o.b. they do at least have another dr in the office that takes medicaid, so I don't have to change offices. Truthfully though, I may change anyway just b/c I'm not so comfortable with him. We'll see I guess.
We got a TON done this weekend. We cleaned out DS's closet (which was been another place we filled with junk when we first moved in 5 yrs ago and haven't touched since.) It was literally an all day undertaking, but we felt soooo good to have it done! Only one closet left in the house to clean out! Yay!! Beginning tomorrow a.m. we are going to start walking every morning around the block. I'm hoping that will help me keep my weight down the rest of the pg and also help with my energy levels, the swelling, the blood sugar numbers....haha, sounds like I'm looking for a magic bullet, huh? LOL Actually, from previous experience I know it does help with all of the above, I'm just usually too lazy to do it. How's that for honesty? :/
Aarilyn is now moving so much you can see it from the outside of my belly and DH finally got to feel her kick for the first time. All day Friday and then part of Sunday she was in such a painful, awkward position I literally had to bend over and breathe deeply when she would move, it hurt so badly. I probably looked like I was in labor. LOL But she has since found a better position to stay in and I'm quite thankful!!! She is still super duper low. I'm looking forward to finding out how much the u/s thinks she weighs! I can't wait to meet this little girl! The Christmas season is usually my fave anyhow, but somehow this year is just that much more special b/c of Aarilyn's arrival. I'm ready to start decorating already!! LOL
I have been lately also. Doesnt help getting up between 330 and 530 every day. But today I was able to go back to sleep after the couple times I woke up. So I got more sleep finally and got up around 6am instead. Im excited.
That's always nice. I didn't get out of bed until like 9:45 today. I sleep absolutely terrible at night so i'm glad I'm able to stay in bed for a long time and get some extra time/sleep. When DS is here I don't get to stay in bed that late but still pretty late (usually about 8 or 8:30). Except it's switching so I'll have to have him to school on Wednesdays starting at 8:50 or something like that next week. BLAH. It's at least 20 minutes to his school. and I try to get him there early to play with his friends. Not looking forward to Wednesdays!
Ugh. I did a ton of homework last night... Just finished a couple of hours more... Have more for the class I just did. And I have more tonight to do with DH. I HATE SCHOOL. I wish I could be done with it already. I'm thinking about next semester and having a new baby and thinking I might just not do it.
You can do it Maddie. I started college in 09 with 2 kids and dating my youngest daughter's(for now) dad and then I got pregnant with Sydney while I was going. I thankfully timmed it right and had her while on summer break so was able to just take the summer semester off with her and she was 6+ weeks old when I had to go back. I graduated with my AA when Sydney was 6 months old. I was a single parent during most of it. I was also working my last semester also. Its doable and you will only have 2 kids. Just think how much better things will be after your done with school.
Roxi - So sorry about your nightmare! I have really weird dreams right now, but a few nightmares here and there. I hope yours was a rare occasion, and you'll have better dreams now.
Kati - Mmmm now I want brownies. . . .
Jana - Yay on the charger and not the laptop! How's all the house cleaning and organizing and de-junking going? Good luck with the Medicaid. It has been a great blessing in my life for this pregnancy. If you decide to change the OB, do you have referrals of where else to look? I'm excited to have a Christmas baby, too. I wasn't happy that she'll have to share her birthday with the holiday season, but this year will be great.
Are you guys planning to take your newborn to all the holiday activities? I am terrified mine will catch something (like pertussis), even at a family event and it will be bad bad bad. At this point, I'm planning to skip most of the events, even family events, and stay home with her. I'm just so scared, and I don't know what other option there is to protect her from illness when she is so tiny and new.
So we had ANOTHER daycare issue. What is the problem? Why can't I find a good daycare? I'm getting so frustrated. We ended up pulling DS out within hours of the incident, and as soon as he was out I reported it to the licensing agency. At this point, a friend of mine is going to watch DS until I have the baby. After that, I'll figure out what to do (depending on how I'm doing with a new baby all by myself, if work ends my contract, etc). I don't even trust licensed daycares right now- I've had to pull my son three times in the last year, twice for injuries and negligence. I just can't take it anymore. I can't handle seeing my little boy go through this crap and drama. So, I'm going with a friend, someone I know and love and trust.

Single Mom parenting my kids the best way *I* know how
FH - My former husband and the man that blessed me with both my kidlets
DS - My May 2010 Moonbeam born
BG - My baby girl expected in Dec 2013
Marie Im sorry your having major issues with daycare. Its really hard finding someone you ca trust with your lil ones. I was lucky finding the one I have now. She is awesome and my kids love her and I totally trust her. She will take the baby after shes born well atleast after 6 weeks I might have to go back sooner than that but will get to it when we get there. Have you tried an inhome daycare? They are more personable. I had major issues with our last inhome and Taylor required staples in his head so I pulled the kids specially since her story has changed multiple times. Horrible that your DS got injured. Some people are horrible.
I will be taking Sophie to all our family stuff. Between my 2 brothers and me we have 10 kids between the 3 of us. Most are 6 and under but as long as noone is sick Im ok being around them. They will all come see us in the hospital (other then one of my brothers 2 girls unless he has them that weekend). Im not really paranoid about the kids getting sick or taking the baby out first born. I have 3 other kids besides the baby and Sydney has siblings at her dads house plus both my brothers kids so she will be exposed to alot of things. All my kids have been really healthy.
As for me today I fell asleep at my desk. lol Had both my headphones in and was just sooo tired. When I woke up I got up and went outside with a couple co workers and talked to them and walked a bit. Was fine then. lol I so wish I could nap in the afternoons. But can not. Blah. But on a good note I have been able to relax again when I wake up in the middle of the night so I am no longer getting up between 330 and 530am for the day. Which is nice. So getting a lil more sleep. Tomorrow I am 34 weeks.
