Then, Friday afternoon DS went to his new dayhome for a bit, just to play and meet the care provider and other kids, while I ran errands. He did great. I told him a few times earlier that he was going there to play, etc. so he knew what to expect. When I dropped him off he said "bye-bye mommy" and off he went to play. The care provider said he did great, and he's excited to go play there again, so that is a huge relief! Otherwise, nothing too exciting. Went to a baby shower for a friend on Saturday, and had a quiet day Sunday. I'm still really tired and had two naps on Sunday! Sunday afternoon DH took DS swimming, so that gave me the quiet time to myself to sleep. What a treat.
So, my BIL and SIL are in New Orleans this week for a pre-baby trip (well, and BIL has a conference there for a couple days too). Now I really want to do a get away with DH. I think we need to re-connect a bit before this peanut arrives. Any good suggestions on where we should go? (Mid to Western US just due to flying time, and somewhere that is relatively nice in the winter as I'd like to escape the fridgid Canadian winter for a bit. I'm thinking Jan or Feb.) I know DH would LOVE to go to Chicago or NYC, but NYC is too far and too cold, and Chicago is just too cold in Feb I am thinking.
Oh, I forgot to comment on Captain America! SO CUTE! Don't tell me you made this??? Amazing!
I'm in Chicago and Feb can be hit or miss regarding temperature. It really depends on your tolerance and outwear. But there's a ton to do here, 2 zoos (one less than a mile from my house), lots of shopping, Navy Pier, Millenium Park, stuff out in the burbs. It's a really nice area.
Yea, I just might sit out Thanksgiving. DH may be needed to work that weekend now anyway if our football team makes it to the playoffs since there won't be students around to work the media stuff. So now we have a built in reason too. She doesn't have to know if they make it or not...not that I would lie to my mother because that would be wrong...

Lol. It's my fault too that my mom got fat. She had an amniocentesis done early in her pregnancy, "because the doctor forced her", and her fluid wouldn't stop leaking so he told her to go home and have her m/c, so she sat at home and ate hagan daas non stop until I was born. Then I was too big and she had to have a c-section. So, it's all my fault...
That's what I was always told too. And it is more of a problem for you than for baby. The weight of the baby when you are close to full term can compress your inferior vena cava and cut off blood to your extremities and make you pass out. As far as exercises you can continue what you normally do until it is uncomfortable or you get dizzy or have any bleeding but you can't increase your exercises amount. I forget how much weight you are allowed to do when lifting though. I think sometime in the last half of your pregnancy you are suppose to only lift so much.
Or worse, they'd love one another and form a crappy mom alliance against us daughters who made them fat! Are you other member who has cut her mom out of her life? If so, tips? I know it's coming and sooner rather than later. Now I'm wishing I would have done it years ago as I find myself hoping she'll do something so appalling that it'll be super easy to just be done with the whole relationship which I know is silly since she does a million little things every time I talk to her but it's hard to undo the 30 years of brainwashing.
Looks like the first big project I'll have when I get back from maternity leave is planning an all staff party. I normally do the staff parties but we used to do one in June and I informed the group that I'd be out then and suddenly a back to school party seemed like a better idea, lol. Guess it's a testament to me being good at my job. Working on the Christmas one now, it just hit me I only have a month and a half, yipes!
Timesaway, things looking any better for you with your health and/or the ex?
Don't forget to get out and vote today if you haven't done so already! Times like today (and whenever there's a long line somewhere) I wish I looked more pregnant. I'm not showing at all yet but that doesn't mean I have the patience to wait in line. I'm making a person people, step aside so I can get back to nappin!
Hope everyone is having a good week :)
Oh, and if you haven't watched this week's Walking Dead...don't. It kinda puts your pregnancy complaining in rather harsh perspective. I mean sure I'm tired and pregnant but I could be tired and pregnant AND trying to survive the zombie apocolypse.
