In the meantime, Gavin and I have been really busy, andthat has helped. We have done SOOO much - the nursery is officially complete. I should take some pictures and post them, but that would require me getting off this couch and walking back there for actual activity, so no can do.
Lately, when I get home from work, it's like I have these bursts of nesting energy when I clean my house like a and organize things like a mother trucker, followed by periods where I am incapable of doing anything but sitting right here on my ass. I have been told this is hormonal. I can't complain though, because if it weren't for these bursts of energy, nothing would get done.. at least not by me. Poor Gav has really been picking up the slack - thanks honey!
I also have some fun new symptoms, including but not limited to low back pain on one side and sciatic pain on the other - yay! Back pain? Really? I feel like a Plaintiff or something. I also think I lose my mind momentarily at times. An example of this was when I saw my very sweet, very southern, very hilarious grandfather a few weeks ago. Keep in mind that he hadn't seen me in a while, and I was wayyyy pregnanter than at our last meeting.
Here's how that went:
Me: Hey DeDa!
DeDa: Hey Honey.... what happened to you? (sarcastic allusion to my large and in charge state)
Me: Well, DeDa, I done got knocked up. (hugs)
Seriously Bets? He appeared to get a real kick out of that, but now that I think back, I'm pretty sure it was inappropriate. Whatevs..
In the meantime, I've had a few showers! My pals J and V gave me a really nice couples shower a couple weeks ago, and we had the greatest time. Here I am with the hostesses....
Then, my office gave us a really really nice shower at a local restaurant. Gavin and I were floored when we got there and saw all that they had done. Here's a pic or two...
Well, I go to the doc tomorrow to see if I'm dilated at all.... that should be really fun, as cervical exams always are for me. In the meantime, I'll try to take a look at my life and see if there's anything going on in my life that's not baby-related that I can blog about. I feel bad being so one-dimensional on this blog, but the fact is, being this preg really consumes your life for a while. I go to work and then come home and do pregnant lady things. I'll do better.
See you soon!
See you soon!
