Happy June everyone! Wow...where did the last 6 months go? Here comes SUMMER! I've had the song, "June is busting out all over..." in my head all day. Ok, all my Broadway loving friends...Name That Musical!
Today was my LAST day at work. I can't believe I'm done. I was actually kinda sad to leave...I didn't cry but I will definitely miss this field of work. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't always a piece of cake and getting yelled at on a daily basis was starting to get old, but there is something about helping people that I love doing. I haven't found "my true calling" in life (aka the perfect job) yet, but I know it will involve helping others. So with that said, GOOD BYE LEASING...hello motherhood again... :)
I also hit 37 weeks pregnant today. Only 3 more weeks to go and let me tell ya, I am ready to have my body back!!! Argg...the last month of pregnancy is very hard. Sitting, standing, walking, sleeping, etc. are all becoming nearly impossible to do. Especially sleep- it's crazy how your body can adjust to the lack of sleep. With Ryan still attending school 3 days a week, I am looking forward to taking some much needed naps! Ok- enough pregnancy venting for now.
Update on Kara- everything went well at my last appt. Her heartbeat sounded very strong and she seems to be growing at a nice steady pace. My blood pressure is fine, strep-b test came back negative, and I am still measuring where I should be. Now my weight, arggg, that's another story. I need to lay off the oreos!! ha! No seriously, I have gained as much as I did with Ryan's pregnancy. Which surprised me because I didn't eat nearly as many sweets with his! So it hasn't been bad, I just feel a lot "bigger" this time around.
I also had a conversation with Dr. Feio about my delivery with Ryan and he seems to be pushing c-section. I do not want to go down this route but I know that if it has to be done, it has to be done. Luckily, I am doing well enough that I could start labor naturally and if a c-section is necessary, then they will do it then. I also do not want to be induced this time around...cross your fingers I won't have to go through that as well! Our next visit is on Friday (6/6- I see the doctors every week now) and we are getting an ultrasound done to check the fluid levels. I am excited to see Kara (here's hoping she didn't grow another body part since March!!!) and hopefully I will get a nice picture that I can post.
