How is everyone's weekend going?

So what is everyone up to this weekend?

I am so bored right now. Yesterday and today I was all alone with DS. I adore him and love spending time with him but it has been long days. Since I am careful about caring him (he can't walk do to CP) I feel like we are stuck at home...can't go out...and I don't have the energy to be able to play with him like he deserves. Then DH came home from work...just to spend the entire afternoon/evening doing yard work and staining the deck. I know the yard needs to get done but it would have been nice to hang out. Now DH just came in, DS is in bed and I am exhausted so to bed I go. I get the joy of waking up early tomorrow morning to head to the lab to do all the tests that my doc wants. I don't know how I will not eat when I get up....if I don't I always puke. And then to go to the lab drink that orange drink and sit there for 2 hours....yikes. My tummy is not going to like me...wonder what would happen if I puked it up? Guess we will see. The afternoon I am doing errands and shoping then an evening with my boys. I was excited to have a weekend with no plans and no one coming over....now I kind of wish we would have had plans Smile

I had to do the GD test 5 times in my first pregnancy. 3 of those times it came right back up. They made me come back the next day and test again, not fun! I hate those tests.

This is a holiday wkend, Monday everything is closed. I think we'll go for a hike today.

Our weekend is almost over, it's 6pm Sunday evening here.

Yesterday ds and I had a pretty quiet day while dbf was at his rugby league game. It was drizzling so we stayed home and spent the afternoon on the couch reading books. Last night we had friends over for a few hours. Today we went shopping for a bed for ds, we ended up getting this http://salefinder.co.nz/harvey-norman-catalogues/half-yearly-clearance/2970/single-packages/271398/ Its quite low to the ground making it perfect for a toddler bed. We will pick it up in a couple of weekends time once it's all ready and we have cleared out the spare room. Tonight I am planning on finishing my ethics learning journal for one of my classes and a bit of study for my exam on Tuesday.

What a cool thread, Melanie. Thanks for starting this. Good luck with your tests tomorrow!

SO surprised me tonight by taking me out to stuff myself with middle eastern food! Tabouli, hummus, tzatziki and lamb. The restaurant was packed, and I got to drink kefir and it reminded me of when I lived in Crimea. It was extra sweet because we've been really trying to be very frugal and therefore I've been trying not to complain about doing so much cooking.

Now, he is kind of zoned out in front of the telly... I'm researching nutrition stuff...specifically benefits of cod liver oil... I've been kind of directionless since graduating college, but I think I do want to go back to school for a PhD in nutritional sciences.

Boring here too. Dh is depressed again and refusing to take meds or find a job so I am spending my time trying to decide whether to leave or not. He's miserable and unpleasantly critical so I need an escape an just in case. Today Mélodie and I are going to the mall so she can play on the indoor lsygrpund (it's raining) I'm also going to get her new socks as the sock monster seems to eat them. A tip for FTMs, always buy only one or two types do if you lose one you can match it with another.

Sorry to hear about your DH, Carrianne. I have a friend whose DH also has depression and it is really hard on her sometimes. It's really like being a single mom cause she pretty much has to take care of the kids by herself.

I have been sooooo bored this weekend cause I am stuck in the house trying to rest. I hate being in the house all the time; I am the kind of person that likes to always be out somewhere, especially on the weekend. I did go out to the doctor's office yesterday for a blood test but that was it. I think I will have to get out somewhere this morning though...maybe we will go look at new cars for a little while. Some friends are coming over for dinner later so that will be nice.

Back to back 12 hour shifts for me this weekend.....uggghhh..I'm so tired!

It stormed here last night and my toy poodle was so scared of the thunder that she was shaking. So she slept right up under me last night and I was on the edge of our (king size!) bed. No fun. I'm exhausted.

Haven't heard anything back. But I wasn't trying super hard either. I figure once the baby comes I will really start making calls after I send my resume. Right now I make my own schedule unless, like this weekend, I cover for another nurse that needed off. I was also unsure about switching insurance in the middle of my pregnancy. I didn't want to chance my OB not taking new insurance and having to switch to someone else. I've been going to her since I was 20.

I do have it pretty good here. I only schedule myself 8 hour shifts and one 12 hour shift every Wednesday. Working two 12's back is exhausting.

I always have to work the weekends (aahhh, the life of a concierge at a resort in Las Vegas... yes I'm being sarcastic lol), but I don't go in until 3PM so I get to at least spend the morning and early afternoon with the family. DH actually surprised me this morning by doing the laundry, dishes, and vaccuming... and when I tried to help fold clothes he said, "Baby, you're pregnant, just sit back and relax for once." I could have made love to him right then and there lol! Actually DH woke me up this morning to some "sweet lovin"... just the way I like it... then we took the kids to park before I came in to work. It's actually been a fabulous day!

Melanie, good luck with your test tomorrow! I hate that one, especially because with my last baby, the test results came back about 5 points over the limit, so I had to go back and take it again where I drank, sat an hour, had blood drawn, waited another hour, had blood drawn again, waited another hour, and had it drawn a third time... it was a freaking nightmare! And of course, in the end, everything was perfectly fine! Damn these OB's and their tests lol!

Weekend winding to a close here now.

Friday was my anniversary and today is my birthday, so it was pretty fun Smile

Today was church as usual and then we spent the evening at the park. We had a picnic supper with my mom, stepdad, and sisters. Cold chicken, potato salad, broccoli salad, watermelon and a yummy cake for dessert.

I'm exhausted! This week marks me being 4 months pregnant. And I look 6 months pregnant LOL. I am already having trouble bending over and rolling over in bed. Going to be a long summer!
