Weekly chit-chat November 29th-December 5th - Page 6

post #101 of 111
I am so happy! My heater is finally repaired and my babies are no longer running around with chilly hands and feet! My baby won't be born in to a house barley warmed in places with space heaters. I feel like crying, being warm in my home feels so good and being pregnant I am extra emotional. I had it at 70 to get the downstairs warmed up which didn't take long and then I turned it down to 60. After months of being on the cold side I feel almost overheated. There is only one vent to the upstairs (a 1910 house, heater was of course added much later) but it should be a comfortable temp by bedtime.

That stinks that you have to wait Nighten, I hope it's nothing serious.

So, I had my moment of freak-out the other night. I hadn't slept well at all the night before and had to go to school at night to watch a concert for my music class after I got off work. I was utterly exhausted by the time I got home, which was close to 10 pm and still had to finish my homework. It struck me that I am taking 18 credit hours next semester, having a baby right in the middle of the semester. I have to take this many hours though. I finish and graduate in May and I just have to push my way through one more semester and I'm done and I'll have my degree.
It also struck me that I am having my baby end of February/early March and starting my in-home business in May without even taking a week off between that and graduation. I was definitely feeling overwhelmed in my exhaustion.
This led to the thought that I am having a baby, period. We're the first of our group of friends to have a baby so I just feel like this changes everything. I was thinking, I can handle having a baby and even a toddler. I've worked with kids for years and that infants and toddlers have always been my forte. But I remembered that I am not just going to have a baby. I am going to have a 10 year old. I am going to have a 15 year old. I am going to have a 30 year old daughter. That freaked me out a bit. I don't like 15 year old girls and I am going to have one of my own living in my house.

I got a good night's sleep and felt better when I woke up in the morning. Taking it one stage at a time, starting with the baby part. Which I totally look forward to. The rest will come, as well as more babies hopefully!

I already have a 4-year-old and it still freaks me out, thinking of having a 10-year-old! Aaaahhh! But I'm sure it will be different when I get there. But anyway, I know what you mean!

Thanks everyone. I'm just feeling a little frustrated is all.

I could call her on her cell but I don't want to bug her. It's not terrible, having to wait, since I assume if it were something Really Bad the tech would've sent me back to the midwife/OB office. It's just a little tiring. I will call them first thing Monday though.

Ha! I have a teen girl right now and really it is not bad...actually there are a ton of things I love about it! We can have great talks about politics, books, boys etc. You can see glimpses of the person she is becoming! She has attitude for sure and she makes some pretty stupid choices sometimes but hey...that' s what teens do! For the most part, I enjoy her as much now as I did when she was small!

I'm 30 weeks I think...I keep losing track! I have a super buys week coming up next week, something going on every night Monday-Monday! Then...nothing, Dh and I also have 2 weeks off from work (no money either but hey, what can you do...) and both school kids are off as well...
I think we will get very spoiled not having to drive all over the place for two weeks!

30 weeks today! :
I'm not sure why, but it feels like a monumental milestone.
We finished the baby's room ... which is kind of funny, because the baby will sleep with us. But we designed it to be a children's room, so that our little one can grow into the room. I love it. We did it super duper extra extreme cheap, and it still looks awesome. I'm really proud of us for being so resourceful and creative.
I sit in there and just gaze around, stunned that soon I'll have our baby in my arms. So exciting!

Man I'm emotional mess lately. Today I feel like crying because this new job has my husband working 60 hours weeks. I love Saturdays with my whole family and now we don't get to have them. Sundays are more on the rushed side because church is first thing in the morning but Saturdays are nice and slow most of the time. I'm going to miss that for the next month and a half.

I understand, Jen. My husband has not been working since end of April because he has been writing his dissertation. Well, he's done . . . he graduates next week . . . and he will be going back to work. I am so spoiled to having him here 24/7. I am really going to miss having him here!
