Here I am at 27 weeks and 29 weeks. The pregnancy is going well. The only thing I will continue to complain about is sleep. I have gotten to where I have 3 more pillows in bed with me than I normally do and it's really annoying to rearrange them every time I get up to go to the bathroom (which is usually twice a night.) With the summer heat and humidity on the rise, it can be very hard to breathe when I'm outside, and I get hot very easily. I can tell you that there will be no more long car rides. If the trip is longer than 3 hours, I'm out. I can't stretch out in a car the way I want to and it's extremely uncomfortable and then I'm just not a pleasant person to be around.
I'm still not eating chicken. I've tried to eat it a few times, but it just doesn't work out. Other than that, I'll eat and try just about anything. I can't believe I'm almost 6 and a half months already. The time has flown by. I know it'll only come quicker and quicker too. I'll be starting on Drew's room hopefully this week. I've got the bedding and curtain. Withing the next couple weeks, we'll be buying the furniture. I'm so excited to see how his room turns out.
I know I'm ready to meet this little guy inside me and have him meet the rest of the family who I know are also excited to meet him. I just recently found out that my doctor is moving at the end of August so I hope Drew decides to make an appearance before them and also because my brother will be home for his 2 weeks of vacation from Iraq around that time as well. And then hopefully my dad will get to come home sometime in September or October from Afghanistan to meet his new grandson.
Along with all this pregnancy stuff I'll also be getting my classroom ready. Thankfully I have some great friends who I know are willing to help out. I'm super excited for all the changes coming in the next 3 months!!
As you can tell from the title I'm a buckeye, living in the bluegrass state. But I love it here and wouldn't change it for the world. I'm a 2nd grade teacher at Northern Elementary and I love all the rewards that come with teaching. My husband Mike and I live in Georgetown and just welcomed our first little one into the world on August 27th, 2010. We also have two dogs, Starr and Tyson.
