Horrible Mommy confession: I never did a special going home outfit. I think I was just so excited to actually GO HOME that I never cared. DD2 was planned as a homebirth so a trip to the hospital was not on my radar.
Bailey, Oh look at those cheeks! So cute! I hope you are able to deliver where you want to! I'm sorry you have to have amnio. Bummer.
A pretty good weekend so far. I got baby's room painted yesterday. I need to paint the door and trim still but that's needed to be done for 3 years! DH had an all-nighter with the Jr. High youth group Friday night so he was super wiped out yesterday so the girls I went out for a while so he could nap in a quiet house. Then we went to a local concert last night that was great! We know some of the band members and they just signed a record deal so that is very exciting for them! Not sure what we are going to do today while DH is working. I'm not feeling terribly motivated today and folding laundry while watching the Food Network sounds awesome but I don't think the kids will go for that.
I never did a special going home outfit either.
Cobabymaker - I'm not very motivated today either. We were at my IL's for breakfast and there were a lot of people there and it was loud and I could see DD possibly having a tantrum when we had to leave because gramma and grampa were on a cruise for week. We stayed for a short while (DD and I had already eaten when we first got up) but the noise was getting to me and I just felt like hanging out in our own quiet house today. My social skills always go down hill around this time in my pregnancies.
So it's not just me then? DH keeps asking what we're goint to do today. Honestly, I don't want to leave the house! I made pie crust for a pie to take to my parents tonight, and a batch of rolls from a recipe I pinned recently are rising. I just feel like vegging in the house now, and that's it.
I want home days too lately. Going food shopping yesterday was so flippin stressful, I couldn't wait to get home, there were like 10 people in every aisle, AGH! The cashier asked me what I was doing with my day and I replied "just trying to get through this". haha. But once we got home it was lovely, we got a bunch of snow, so dd was out playing with all the neighborhood kids, they build a huge snow fort. DH and I did a bunch of cooking and food prep for the week, and Becky, I folded laundry in front of the Food Network, and just had a nice homey day. Today there was a 2 hour delay on school, so I stayed home to work. I didn't have to, but it was a great excuse and the traffic may have been bad enough to ruin my day, so yay!
I am all about food these days, craving sweets but working hard to make sure I satisfy them in a good way. I made pumpkin pie yesterday, sweetened with honey and a whole wheat crust, so I can feel good about that, also got really good granola with a perfect fruit/nut mix (all things I like) and enjoying the hell out of it.
Off to work, hope everyone has a great week!
Well poor DH was trying to do some of the plumbing in the bathroom today and the valve stem broke. He spent the ENTIRE day trying to fix it. I feel bad for him, it was a lot work and very frustrating for him. So we had no water until almost 5 o'clock. It really is something I take for granted-just being able to walk over to the sink and turn it on or flush the toilet (with a pregnant lady and two little ones in the house there really is no "holding it"). I'm so thankful this evening for running water!
I feel like I am officially jumping to the third tri today. My belly has really been hurting today, just feeling like it's at capacity and baby is starting to push down more. Thankfully the pressure is not painful, just uncomfortable. My belly really was hurting for a while this afternoon though, down right painful where I could hardly move for about 15 or 20 minutes. Not crampy, just painful.
I am starting to think about how things will be post-partum and I am curious about how it will be different because DD1 will be almost 5. While she still needs me a lot she really does a lot and honestly WANTS to help. She picks out her own (mis-matched) clothes and even helps DD2 get dressed some days. This morning the girls were begging me to help unload the silverware from the dishwasher. They love to help with the laundry too. It really is fun to watch her grow and learn and see her sweet heart toward others. I don't want to expect too much of her but I am enjoying her desire to learn new skills and do things to love others.
