Only 8 more days until my big ultrasound!!!! I am soo freaking excited it's not even funny! I've spoken with my boss and changed my last day to this Friday so that I can make it to the doctor's appointment and not have to worry about leaving work and then going back. I can't believe how quickly everything is moving along! We still haven't started packing! We were more concerned with getting everything pulled aside for our yardsale yesterday. We made a pretty good chunk of change off our stuff. We only sold about half of what we had out there! The rest is just going to get donated cuz I really don't want to have to pack it up and move it. Since we were willing to part with those items at the yardsale then there's no need to keep them just because they didn't sell.
Anyway, finally had a good Saturday night! We had gotten up at 6:30am for the yardsale that we were so tired by the time we got back home. D was thinking about going to his friends pool and hanging out but it started to rain and I told him that he should just chill at home with me and that's exactly what he did! We took a shower to get the grossness of the day outside off us, rested and cuddled on the bed, and then
Sex feels a whole lot different now tho! It's almost too much to handle cuz everything on my body is so much more sensitive.
My belly is growing a little more every week! I'm still just feeling fat though. Everything is starting to be pushed upward so even my upper belly is looking larger. I can't wait until I really start rounding out and being obviously pregnant. I've been feeling little flutters/spasms of movement for the past few weeks. It's starting to get more obvious but still not quite distinguishable as to whether it's just the baby somersaulting (sp?) or if it's kicks or whatnot. I can't wait until I can feel an elbow or a kick! We got to hear a kick the other day at the OB office! We were listening on the doppler and hear a "bloop!" and the nurse told us it was movement, most likely a kick! It was sooo cool!
Anyway, I think I'm gonna go and start bubble wrapping some of our pictures and such.
Last day at work . . . 3 more days til big u/s!!!!
Today is my last day at my job! I'm excited and sad at the same time. My co-workers have been the greatest! I'm really going to miss them! (Hubby and I are moving from South Carolina to Maryland on Tuesday.) This morning my co-workers all gathered around and presented me with a card and gift card to Baby's R Us since I'm not going to be around for them to throw me a baby shower!
I've had hubby running errands all day. We still are not packed, but thankfully we don't have nearly as much stuff to go in boxes since we did our yardsale the other week! Most of our stuff is furniture and larger items.
My mommy is flying into town Monday morning, we're getting the truck, packing, going to the dr's office for my sonogram, and then doing whatever else needs to be done before leaving out on Tuesday morning! It's gonna be crazy! I'm really looking forward to the move though. I haven't been with my family in 6 years, aside from short visits here and there.
Anyway, pregnancy is going well for all I know. I'm in discomfort quite often, but I just take that to be growing pains. I'm feeling little spasms and flutters of movement and I think last night I actually felt a definitive movement down one side of my belly. I guess it was a foot, elbow, or the head. It was just a little swipe to the right of my belly button. Speaking of belly button, mine is getting wider and shallower! My belly is getting rounder and slowly becoming more obvious that I'm pregnant and not fat! lol
I've been eating lots! We've had pizza about 3 times in the past week and each time I've had 3 pieces!!! Pre-pregnancy I could only eat 2 and even that much left me feeling incredibly full! I've been devouring cinnamon buns for breakfast . . . mmmm! They give me heartburn, but that's ok.
Anyway, I've gotta be getting back to work.
Well, so much has happened since the last time I wrote! We found out that we're having a little boy! My hubby was thrilled about that and I'm happy too! His name will be Ronan (I think we're still deciding on the middle name!). We have tons of boys in my family so it won't be anything new to me and he'll have plenty of cousins to play and grow up with!
Anyway, we got everything packed in one weekend, moved on July 1st after a few minor delays (pain in the a**), but we arrived in Baltimore safe and sound! My mom and brother helped us unload the truck, then my SIL came over and helped me unpack and somewhat organize the kitchen items. It was a busy couple of days, but well worth it! I'm so glad to be back with my family!
I started painting Ronan's room probably a week and a half after getting here! The rest is slow going. I have a ton of hand-me-down clothes from my oldest brother and his wife, with more coming from my other brother! I've bought a few new items with the gift card my co-workers gave me and have found some really cute things! I'm "borrowing" a changing table from my brother (they plan to have a second child sometime in the future), and will be getting a crib and bassinet from my other bro. That leaves a dresser as the only other real furniture that we need for now.
Hubby started a job within two weeks of being here! I on the other hand have been so freaking lazy about finding a job that I haven't quite gotten any offers yet. I've been filling out applications on-line but haven't heard anything on them. It's so nice to just laze around the house all day or go out with my friend or my mom on thier days off. But to keep up with the finances I do need to find something asap! Oy!
I'm getting so anxious and impatient for November 23! I'm also anxious to have Ronan's room finished and it's just coming along so slowly! Plus I have no idea when I'll be having a baby shower, nor who's going to plan and host it! So I'm also just concerned about what I should and shouldn't buy right now. I keep watching baby shows on tv and that's not helping my patience at all! I see all these cute little newborns and infants and just can't wait to see my baby's face and hold him in my arms. I've already decided that if there are no medical complications I want him handed to me as soon as he's out; I don't care if he's all covered in fluids and whatnot - I want to hold him asap!
I am getting so emotionally anxious for my baby to be here! I just realised the other day that in 8 days I will be starting my 3rd trimester!!!!
I've been watching a lot of baby and delivery shows since we got the cable hooked up - I'm so totally ready to meet my Little Roo!
The hormones are going crazy! I was listening to "It's All Coming Back" by Celine Dion yesterday while on the Nov. 2008 BB and almost started bawling! I don't know what it was about that song, but it hit me as soon as it started. The other songs that I listened to after that one didn't affect me at all . . . weird. Thankfully I'm not crying over ever little thing yet, but there are definitely some weird things that can get me all teary-eyed. Everytime I'm watching one of those baby showns and I hear that first cry - that gets me and makes me so impatient to hear my own baby's cry!
There are plenty of movies and shows that I just can't watch for whatever reason. My tastes have changed a lot since I got pregnant. I can't handle anything creepy or scary (horror genre) and even some suspense or dramas turn me off now. The movie Radio was on tv the other day, and I love that movie, but I couldn't watch it. I knew I'd start bawling if I did watch it.
Another effect of being pregnant - my brain is not functioning at nearly the capacity it was! I can't remember things, I have no attention span at times, and now I try to rely on my hubby to remember things for me when it's always been him relying on me - it's frustrating! I really need him to step up and starting remembering things, but he's always been kinda ADD.
Anyway, I need breakfast . . .
