Christmas has come and gone, and I have learned that not only is my smell ability really sensitive, so is my hearing. Everything seemed ten times louder than normal, and I had 13 people in my house!!! Can you say headache?!? I got to sleep in my own bed last night which was great! It felt so good having family over, but after a few hours, it got old fast...lol. We had so much fun though, and I really enjoyed seeing my niece open all her presents. It made me think of where I will be next year with my LO.
I am at work today, and it looks as if its going to be a very slow day!!!bleh. I can't wait to get home at 6pm and relax!!!!
OH! I noticed the other day that if I relax and concentrate really hard that I can feel a little movement right below my belly button. My mom says that I am imagining things, but I realyl think its my LO telling me that he/she is there!
UGH! I am so ready to be over with work. I wish DH would have a job that would provide us with enough income to hold us over, but for now we both have to work, and it stinks. All I have ever watned was to be a mom or a teacher, I am working on one, and the other one seems so far away even though I am qualified! Maybe after the baby is born there may be an opportunity for me to get out of here.
What I do is solicitation for refinancing of autos and mortgages. When I was hired I was not told that there was any solicitation but that I would be calling "our customers" very rarely. bullsh*t. I have to make at least 50 calls a day to try and get three applications. It sucks because nobody wants you to call them and offer crap. If they want it, they will come to you.
Phew, off my rant!
So, nonetheless, all I want to do is be with my baby when its born, and love and adore it without having to worry about going to back work.
On the baby front, my next appointment is 1/15 and I still havent done my bloodwork yet, or heard the heartbeat yet. I am starting to get worried that this doctor is one of those that are kinda ditsy, and have too many patients to think about the small stuff. hmm...I dont know. Maybe I am just in a foul mood, and am angry at the world. I dont know.
well ladies, I really apologize for not updating sooner. I have just been so miserable with hating my job and being sick. GRrr. Its like the tummy aches wont go away! I woke up this morning because my tummy had rumbled so hard that I thought I was going to throw up!
I am also having this issue with my lazy eye, and worrying about bells palsy, which my sister had throughout her pregnancy.
I have an appointment in a week and a half, and called the nurse practioner at the office, and she told me to just continue to monitor my blood pressure. Sometimes I wish I could just feel the baby in order to have that reassuring feeling, but that wont be happening for another 3 to 5 weeks.
I am on my lunch break and have to go back to work in 1 hour.
It is amazing what a few days of relaxation will do for you! I was at my mom's house all weekend, and it felt great to just be able to watch the food network and see my little niece in her potty training endeavor. Hubby and I came back home Sunday afternoon and felt so refreshed that we started cleaning house with no complaints!!! After about 3 hours of cleaning my body was exhausted and I had to take a nap, and when I got up I found hubby on the couch dozing off. So, all in all it was a pretty lazy Sunday.
I am back at work today, and it doesn't seem that bad. Of course I still hate it, but if I have more weekends like this I will be able to tolerate this job for the next few months.
I am starting to worry about the baby because all of my symptoms are gone and I still dont "feel" anything. My cramping has subsided and the breast tenderness is almost completely gone. I doubt something is wrong, but I can't help but to worry sometimes. I have my appointment next week, so we shall see. I have to get back to work though, but it felt great just to write this down!
I have come to the conclusion that I am a HORRIBLE blogger! I have a hard time keeping up with this thing on a daily basis...dont know why
I am currently in my 18th week, and feeling like I have a cork up my heiny...lol. Constipation has NOT been my friend...grrrr. All in all though, I have to think that all of these things are leading up to having my precious LO in the world with me and hubby! We are finally approaching our big U/S date. February 12th here we come! After my appointment we plan on registering for our shower (which is being put on by my mom and nanny). I am so excited!!! Shopping is a great therapy!!!
Well, back to work. Just 3.5 hours left
