I had my regular appointment just yesterday, and am now going every 2 weeks! The baby's heartbeat was 140bpm. Funny how as soon as she brings the Doppler towards me, we can already hear it. The first few times when we heard it at 10 weeks or so, it took a couple minutes to find it. His movements have also changed a lot. He is just getting so big, and seems to be stretching alot more now, and less room to do it.
For the most part I am feeling well. People always ask me how I am feeling, and the only thing I can really say is that I feel pregnant. I am tired more now than I was in my early weeks of pregnancy. My back is less sore now, but my sciatica nerve is worse then it was. I still puke or dry heave almost daily, and I constantly feel full. I feel like I am going to explode some days. But all in all, I would say I feel good for the most part, as good as I can anyway.
I stole this saying from a friends blog, I thought it was fitting. "It seems to me that being pregnant is like being young: You can't appreciate how awesome it is while you are in the midst of it."
The HypnoBirthing classes are going well. We have had 2 classes so far, and have another 4 more to go. I can say that I have taught myself to be able to relax into a deep state. Something I never thought I would be able to do.
Today is a big day. I am at home right now, listening to the window installers, smash away at the old window. We are getting a new window is the baby's room today. After they leave, I have to hurry to the southside and write my Law and Risk Management exam. I am terrified I am going to fail. Some things I know really really well, and for other parts, I have NO idea. I did the practice exams, and Alan helped me, but it seems as though I don't understand the questions. Very confusing. If I do fail, then I simply just pay to write again. Of course though, I will have to go to my employer and tell him that I failed.....that will be embarrassing!
I did get to sit in on a couple interviews last week for my position. That was neat. The one woman was INSANE!!! Like, actually insane, and the other couple I liked, and thought they would be great for the job. Just another 8 weeks or so, and I am officially on Maternity Leave. OMG, I get to take Maternity Leave, and then almost a year of Parental Leave!!! Wow!!!
I love the shadow in this picture!
