One Week

I've been home for an entire week now. And with the exception of two of my friends visiting me from Boston and Miami, I haven't done much of anything.

I mean, yes, I've done stuff: laundry, cooking, dusting. But I haven't gone anywhere. In fact, I haven't been in the car in three days.

But I'm resting.

Yesterday morning, I assembled FeeNo's changing table. All the baby furtniture arrived on Tuesday and the room wasn't cleared out. It's full of stuff: stroller, high chair, car seat, clothes, and diapers. Now it's my job to sort through it all. I'm not complaining, it's just that I didn't realize my belly was going to start to balloon in a matter of weeks, making things a little bit uncomfortable.

I'm clearly pregnant at 27 weeks. Entering my third trimester. FeeNo kicks and punches me and responds to conversations Mike and I have. It's a strange sensation, one I hope never to forget. I'm winded after climbing the steps. And I've given up on picking up the laundry basket full of clothes. I just can't do it anymore.

I've yet to scan my latest ultrasound picture, which is a shame on my part, since I am scheduled for another ultrasound next week. I'll get to it.

I will.

Were you working? If so, did you have to take sick time off?

Oh, the last trimester. I am trying not to think about it... Don't work too hard while you are resting. :)

Hey Anna--I'm trying to email you and you don't seem to have an address that's public. Would you shoot me an email? Lyrehca AT gmail DOT com

Maura - I was working, although the doctor had suggested I go home back in April. I continued, though, just because I didn't want to go crazy at home. Now, I'm home and going crazy! LOL. I had to go on short-term disability. For more details, you can email me at: thesnowapewife [at] gmail [dot] com.

FFG - I'm trying to rest. Really, I am. But I find myself cleaning out kitchen cabinets and reading old magazines. I think of you and your pregnancy often!

Lyrehca - I emailed you earlier!
