Weekly 30- The final countdown
Tuesday, May 31, 2011
Wowowowo is all I can say, I cannot for the life of me believe that this pregnancy is already 3/4 over. It's amazing especially since looking back it has flown by but while it was happening it seemed to drag on and on. I am still working on the nursery but promise pictures as soon as it's finished up. We have our next doctor's appointment on Thursday with an ultrasound so next week's check in should be a little more exciting. We had a low key weekend and holiday. Saturday we had dinner with one of Tom's coworkers and his family. They have 3 boys and a girl. So much fun. They live on an acre which is much more grass than we have in our town home so they have all kinds of fun stuff to do. They have 3 rabbits, 15 chickens and a little bee keeping thing. Tom was so excited to be able to have boy time and talk about the bees and all that jazz. As soon as we pulled up the kids were all over me. They wanted to play baseball and all kinds of fun stuff. It was nice and different from what we are used to. They asked us to bring dessert so I made Dirt dessert(mud cake, dirt cake, i think everyone has a different name for it) because I knew kids would love it and they wouldn't keep the leftovers so needless to say I pigged out on Sunday and Monday on the leftovers. It is gone thank goodness. Sunday we had to finish ripping up the flooring in the house because we had the final install on Sunday. Basically our living room and kitchen were in a state of disaster on Sunday and most of Monday so we were forced to hang out in the basement where the only other tv is. It was weird and I told Tom I felt like a prisoner. No windows so I had no idea what time it was and I just felt like I couldn't do anything. Luckily we got the floors finished yesterday afternoon and spent the day moving furniture back. SO GLAD TO BE DONE. We only have 64 days until the baby comes and let me say we still have a lot to do. I have a feeling these next few weeks are going to be jam packed.
The other detail worth sharing is my crazy hormonalness. I cry nonstop now. Like over everything. I was thinking about how magical this pregnancy has been and I couldnt stop crying. A song came on at the gym today and I couldnt stop crying. Saw a picture of an emaciated dog and couldnt stop crying. Its just crazy. I never cry so thats probably why I have been so much lately but man I feel like I am losing it somedays. Back to the magical pregnancy thing, its totally true. When I first got pregnant I didnt understand how everyone said it would feel because I hadnt experienced it for myself. Even seeing other pregnant women kinda grossed me out. I wasnt excited to feel the baby kicking and even when he first started kicking it weirded me out. But all of the sudden I realized how much of a miracle it is that I could grow another human being, a combination of Tom and I, in me and that I am healthy enough to do it. Every kick now is like a little gift. I know that sounds totally sappy and it is but I just feel really blessed, lucky and happy these days and I cant complain!
Thats about it for this week except the pics
sorry they are so blurry I swear i will start using our nice camera again soon!
