Has not been a good week, has not been a bad week. I went to see my mom for my dad's birthday. We ate at his favorite Chinese restraunt, ordered his favorite stuff. Then we hit up garden shops. As nuts as my mom can make me sometimes I am happy I went. I feel like it made her day easier. She bought me a peonie which led to me buying another one. They are going nuts all over town right now. I learned that the reason peonies have ants on them is that the ants help with this sticky residue to get the peonie to open. Then once the ant does it's job it moves on to other work. I asked a woman at work about this because my mom was worried about bringing ants in the house. But really ants shouldnt be attracted to the open flower. Interesting, I never knew that.
Friday I got a call from my doctors office about my bloodwork from my rhemotologist. She said there was so signs of my mixed connected tissue disease in my bloodwork at all! It has completely disappeared for my pregnancy, how amazing is that! The nurse practioner said sometimes your body releases natural steroids and these things just take care of themselves when pregnant. So bizarre, something I have had for 10 yrs just disappeared for this period of my life!
Eating has been kinda bad lately. I have been trying hard to go on walks after big meals. It makes me feel a lot better. I need to focus on 2 small dinners maybe. 1 big dinner makes me feel like I am dieing lol I did my dance class yesterday morning and as usual it made me so hungry all day long. So this morning when my alarm went off at 4:30 my thought was "ughhh do i wanna feel like I am starving all day?". So I slept lol Already at 5000 steps from half a day of work so far. It's raining!!!! Yayyyy no watering my garden today!
