22 weeks 4 days. 122 days to go.
The allergies have been crazy. Seriously crazy here and since I have been pretty good about not taking meds unless I absolutely have to I haven’t wanted to take any allergy medication. I take benadryl once or twice a week at night so I can actually get some sleep and not have to deal with the allergies at night. Well, yesterday I was in my office before bed checking my emails for the night and then it happened. I sneezed. No big deal right? I have been sneezing 1000 times a day. Why was this any different? Well… I peed a little. I called out to E saying “aw, man! I can’t believe it! This isn’t suppose to happen till like the third trimester!!!” and his response was “uh-oh, what happened?” All I could do was laugh and say “I just peed a little with that sneeze”. He about died laughing. I am so glad he finds it hilarious and not going to lie, I thought it was pretty funny too 😉 It’s weirdly exciting to have all these things happen to you that you never thought you would get to experience. Bad or good. Maybe that makes me weird but I don’t care.
The rest of this is just going to be all over the place… sorry!
In other news I made an amazing lunch today. I have been devouring carbs like nobody’s business and so I have been trying to find some quick and easy recipes for lunch. I tried this today (http://www.keeperofthehome.org/2012/07/10-minute-lunches-mediterranean-chickpea-salad.html) and substituted the goat cheese for some fat free feta (pasteurized, of coarse) and it was delicious! I will definitely be adding it to my weekly rotation 🙂
Only two days till our anatomy scan, pt 2! I am hoping this little man cooperates and lets us see his handsome face and beautiful heart/diaphragm this time. Plus I am excited to see how much bigger he got in the last month. I know he is getting stronger because I can feel it but I want to ask if his placement is ok. It seems like he has been in the same spot since week 18… he moves from my right side to the center of my stomach but I don’t feel like he is moving up at all so I want to ask about that too.
I am still trying to prepare to go down to ATL this weekend. There is just so much to do! Not to mention trying to find appropriate maternity clothes to wear to work for 4 days is super hard without spending a fortune. Especially since that will be the ONLY time I wear those clothes. It’s hard going from working every day in yoga pants/pj’s to actually thinking about putting together an outfit that doesn’t involve jeans. Also, my first “baby shower” is while I am down there. I can’t tell you just how excited I am! It’s going to be mostly family with just a few friends but that is totally ok with me. I am just so excited I get to have one!!! It’s more of just a party than a baby shower (couples, no games, etc) but still… YAY! Getting the dogs ready is the second hardest part of all of this. The three small dogs are coming with us and our big foster is having to go stay with someone here. It’s a serious pain in the ass but not a whole lot I can do about it. I was just wishing he would have been adopted by now!
I am really procrastinating working. I have found it really hard over the past couple weeks. I just don’t want to do anything!! Well I guess that is enough randomness for one post. I will update again on Thursday after our scan and appointment 🙂
