It’s been a while since I posted. Guess what I’ve been doing?
Mainly just working, sleeping (yes, finally sleeping a teensy bit better, thanks for the maternity pillow), cleaning, freaking out about pending in-law 5 day stay, and…that’s it.
Today, I had my normal monthly OB appointment. When I arrived, they told me I was going to get a flu shot and a Rhogam shot. I was expecting the Rhogam since I am Rh-negative, but not really psyched about getting a shot in my butt. Then the nurse asked if I wanted to just go 3 for 3 and get the Tdap shot as well. Sure, why the hell not? Bring it on, lady. It made me feel better to know that my husband will also be getting the flu and Tdap as well. Can’t risk pertussis around the infant, ya know.
My very sweet husband is nesting. He has been cleaning out closets and organizing the office/baby room. He sold a butt load of DVDs, video games, books, and CDs and got a bunch of money. What he do with that? Bought me the new JK Rowling book for starters, then bought the baby a bunch of books. It’s been really amazing watching Chris get so excited and happy for little Henry to make his grand entrance. The baby is going to be CRAZY about his dad and vice versa. I can’t wait to see that. One book we bought is called My Daddy & Me and I cry every time I look at it. It’s the hormones, of course. Yeah. Hormones.
The Monster at the End of this Book was my absolute favorite as a kid. I love Grover.
…when I am with you.
I’m a little verklempt. Talk amongst yourselves.
In an act of desperation, I dropped $70 on a pregnancy pillow called the Snoogle. Dumb name, but let’s hope it works. I am a tummy sleeper, and being pregnant isn’t conducive to that obviously. After a week of barely no sleep, I had to try something. The regular body pillow does nothing for me. My dog loves it though, so not a complete waste of money (ok, it totally was).
Wish me luck! I hear good things about this from previously-preg ladies, so I’m excited.
And if it sucks, I have the receipt handy.
I re-wrote the post that I tried to publish last night. After I wrote it, I realized I wasn’t quite ready to share yet. So, as one of my friends pointed out, maybe it was meant to be. Thanks WordPress for not working, I guess!
I just wrote a really long, kinda heart felt post about something I hadn’t told many people. It was difficult to write AND my bed is looking really comfortable right now, so I was happy to get it done. Then I pressed “publish” and WordPress told me my request was invalid. They’re invalid! That’s not cool. Oh, and this was on the quick post screen, so I was looking for the save draft button and somehow it completely erased. That is my cue to go to bed now. I will attempt to write it again tomorrow.
In the meantime, here is our fur baby Quincy in her pillow palace. I bought a body pillow to help my pregnant ass sleep, but it does not. At least she likes it.
