I'm at 29 weeks, people, crossing the linea negra to the thirties on Monday! I can hardly believe it. Sometimes I feel like she can't get here fast enough, other times I want to delay the pain for ALAP (as long as possible…that should be the new ASAP). I went to the doctor today and everything is fine. I don't have gestational diabetes, yay, I gained another mother$&%!ing six pounds, which puts me right around a hot 20 lbs. total, lame. Next Tuesday I get to have another ultrasound to make sure the placenta is out of the way and just to check up on cutie pie in there. So new photos next Tuesday!!! She has gotten so unbelievably active in the past couple of weeks it's amazing. Amos and I can see her moving in there, which is both weird and cool and earned me the nickname "Ripley" around the house.
My first week of maternity leave couldn't have happened at a better time. Monday morning I woke up with a sore throat, which quickly escalated into a full-blown upper respiratory infection. I'm at the runny nose/stuffy ears/stare at you with my mouth open phase. Tomorrow night I'm supposed to hostess, so I hope I don't look like a zombie then. That isn't attractive when you're trying to eat dinner, although I don't think I'm contagious, since Amos is untouched by the sickness.
All the house projects I wanted to do have been put on hold, obviously, but next week I'm going to TOWN on her part of the room. We are so close to having everything done that I can't wait to get it all set up and take some photos. Oh and I got my hair cut today, nothing drastic, just fixing it up so it can continue to grow longer without looking all choppy weird layers, but seeing as how I've got the zombie face I'll post a photo later. I LOVE the new hairdresser I used and will use her until the day I die…or actually probably till the day we move. Anyway I love her!
Sorry for the stream of conciousness post…being kind of stuck in the house/in my brain for the past few days has left me a bit loopy, and Amos won't talk to me anymore since I've made him rotate Junior and Shrek 2 in the DVD all week. Whatever, both those movies are hilarious! ;)
