T - 3months

I am officially 3 months from my due date! It's hard to believe this pregnancy is 2/3 of the way through. I've started my Target registry. I just called and signed up for childbirth, infant care, and breastfeeding classes. I can now feel Peanut move several times a day. This is actually real! Now I've just gotta get around to clearing out the nursery and putting stuff together. But right now, I'm working on cleaning the rest of the house. Josh's dad and stepmom have decided to come visit for the weekend. I've had the last couple days off, but I've been feeling like I'm coming down with something so the house is still messy. They're supposed to be here around 4, but fortunately they're not actually staying here. Well, Josh just got home and it's lunchtime. So I better get going for now.

I just noticed, I'm down to double digits!! Less than 100 days till Peanut is supposed to make his/her big debut :)

Navy Ball Pictures

I finally got the pictures from last weekend's Navy Birthday Ball off my camera and onto my computer. We had a really good time. Though I was a bit jealous of another girl at the table who was drinking margaritas. Enjoy the pics!

25 week appt

It was pretty uneventful. Weight was down about 5 pounds, but I knew it was going to be. BP was 108/77. Baby measured at 27 cm. Heartbeat was 141. My next appt will be 3 weeks from today. I've actually got 2 appts that day. In the morning, I'll have my normal appt with the added fun of my glucose test. In the afternoon, I'll have a 3D u/s which will include a look at the placenta to check for the potential of placenta privia (sp?).

I know, I know, I should post more often

It's been a crazy few weeks in my world. I've been undergoing a lot of stress and pressure at work. I've also been experiencing a lot more morning sickness. I think the stress has a lot to do with it.

So I've decided to resign from my job. I'm going to go back to subbing until the baby is born. It's going to be a lot less money, but I think it will be better for me physically and emotionally. I turned my resignation in last Monday, but since I'm under contract, I have to wait for them to find a replacement. My principal is supposed to be doing interviews next Wednesday. It's kinda frustrating because the interviews were originally scheduled for this past Tuesday and then rescheduled for next Monday. Now, they're pushed back even further. It's just irritating because now that I've decided to resign, I am so ready to be done.

I haven't updated my belly pic in a while either. On weekends (when I normally do belly pics), I normally don't feel like getting dressed or going anywhere. I'll get more pics up eventually. I still think I just look fat rather than pregnant. The good part about that is that I don't have people wanting to rub my belly. It's really cool now that I'm feeling baby move more often. Not that much fun when I'm being kicked, but the moving is interesting. Josh kinda freaks out whenever I let him feel the kicks.

This weekend should be fun. Josh and I are going to the Navy Day Ball in San Antonio. Fortunately, I have a nice dress that still fits! So I didn't have to spend a lot of money on a new dress that won't fit after baby. I love that I still haven't had to switch to maternity clothes yet--guess that's one of the advantages of being plus sized and pregnant.

My next appointment is Tuesday afternoon. Should be fairly routine though. Doc wants me to have another u/s between 26 and 28 weeks to check on the placenta position. So I'll probably schedule that for a couple weeks after this appt. We're still planning on doing the 3D. I'm guessing that should mean that we'll finally have a definite gender answer in a few weeks. Oh, I think Josh and I have finally come to a compromise on names. He's wanting Will for a boy and Lindsey for a girl. I like Charlie for a boy and Sarah for a girl. So we came to the decision that if Baby is a boy, we'll name him William Joshua, but if she's a girl, we'll name her Sarah Lynn.

Well, I guess that's about it for now. I'll really try to blog more often so my posts don't get so long and winded. Thanks for checking on me!
