I think I am going to abandon my photo a day thing and just post pictures when I feel like. I have a lot to share but with everything that has been going on, it’s not near the top of my priority list. Sadly. I may revert and upload the photos to the specific days but I might not. It’s all up in the air.
I am going to try and blog more frequently though. I have been documenting things privately but am now ready to share since the news is out there now. I hope it doesn’t turn into a baby or Mommy blog… not that there’s something wrong with that…I want it to be well-rounded. 🙂 We’ll see what the future holds though.
So far 2010 has been going along pretty smoothly…the whole 9 days of it! But as of today I’m officially 14 weeks and things are progressing nicely. My belly is starting to be a belly and I *think* I have felt slight movement twice now in the past few days. I’m pretty sure once for sure because the doppler was on at the time and when I felt the “movement” it was right where we were listening to the baby’s heartbeat. Such a cool feeling! Almost like the feeling of hitting a hill just the right way and you get the flutters…just not on as big of scale. I’ll know in a few weeks for sure if the feelings multiply and intensify. But very exciting.
The first few days of work this week were chaos. Not exactly sure why but I came home from work and just felt like dropping dead. It got better as the week went on though. Thank goodness. I would have lost my mind. I attribute it to the post-Christmas rush. Most kids were like this before Christmas but the kids in our room are so young that they don’t really understand what is coming and what to be excited for but once they experience it, they don’t really understand all the changes and craziness that Christmas brings. Just that it happened and is suddenly over and they don’t really have the ability to understand and adjust like older children. Hopefully this next week starts out smoothly and calmly and isn’t such a big mess. hehe
J and I had a spontaneous date out last night. First time in a long time and I really enjoyed it. I forgot I was pregnant and had a dog and didn’t talk about work…it was nice. It all started because I was starving at work. We were just going to get fastfood but then we opted to go to a local pub. I had awesome sweet chili wings and sweet potato fries. Not the healthiest. But so yummy. I even have lots of leftovers that I’m about to eat here shortly. Mmmmm!
I hope we get to do that more often because I have a feeling those days are numbered. Although when people come out to visit we may just enlist them for a couple hours to escape and be “us.” I’m not going to lose that. I can’t. I need all forms of “us” not just Mommy, Daddy, Baby, & Scotia. I still need J time. Scotia time. And obviously baby time. And all of us a whole. So many aspects of one simple word. But so important to me. My priority. People are telling me I won’t be able to do it but I beg to differ. I’m stubborn. If it can be done, it will be. I just need to befriend people who will help me let this happen. So I can get that ‘me time.’ The big downfall of living in AB. No real support system. I have J and a few friends. That’s all.
I have so much to do today. I feel like I should be doing a lot. There is a big pile of laundry and dishes and the last of the Christmas boxes to put away. J has been doing laundry since early this am when he got up with the dog and now he’s outside fixing our car. Well, not exactly fixing per se, because it still works. It’s preventative. It’s going to stop soon. Well the heat is. We have a thermostat issue and it’s not allowing the car to fully heat up no matter how warm or cold it is outside and won’t blow hot air. Just luke warm. Yay for having a great husband who can do this stuff and saves us lots of money! hehe
Well I should be off. I’m starving and need to get moving. Stop procrastinating. Get ready for groceries and such. Well everyone, have a great Saturday and hopefully your first week of 2010 went smoothly. 🙂
