Belated Happy Birthday, Child Care and other things

Yesterday, I turned, I can't believe it. S keeps reminding me that for everyday that passes by I am closer to 40 than 30. What a nice, sensitive guy he is!! I had a great day yesterday, S went to church with me(this is a big deal since he only goes on Christmas and Easter), he went shopping with me and we went to one of my favorite restaurant for dinner. It is hard to believe that this is the last birthday without a child--it actually feels a little weird.

Today, we toured a day care center. We are still not sure what we are going to do, but we decided to start looking at day care centers to keep our options open. Everyone is telling us that there are very few day care centers that accepts infants so we decided that we should get on the waiting list so at least we have options come May. We liked the center, it was clean and it seems like all the babies are happy. They have a lot of infant, I think because the demand in the city is high and there are very few places to choose from. It also helps that one of our really good friends have their 4 month old baby at the same place. Overall, it just makes me feel good that we have some options.

So my next project is to start the baby room....this is one area where I've neglected. Thinking of what we have to do is just so overwhelming that I keep putting it off. I think I've run out of time and I have to face the music. I can't believe I have less than 15 weeks to get everything done!! This is really happening...

Things are pretty good..I am growing by the minute. Other than not sleeping very well, I can't really complain. I think the sleep thing is your training for when the baby comes. I really can't find any comfortable position and once I find myself sleeping, I have to get up and visit my lovely friend the toilet!! I try every trick in the book, going before bed, not drinking a lot before bed, but nothing works! I still have to go at the minimum of once--mostly 2x in the middle of the night!

S and I played nicely during our field trip to gigantic baby store. We finished our registry...he just keeps reminding me that we were there for 3 1/2 hours! I know it was long, but I didn't want to go back. My mission was to go there once and be done! It was nice since we went on a weekday and it felt like we had the store all to our selves. Plus it was extra bonus points that most of my friends just had their babies and I just printed out their registries and pretty much took their registries and copied it! That saved us a lot of time.

So I go for another doctor's appointment tomorrow. I will be updated how much weight I gained so far and hear the baby's heartbeat again. I think I only have one more appointment after this one before I start seeing my doctor every other week! How time flies!! But for now, I better get my work day I've mentioned before, things been really crazy and I am totally swamped at work. I hope everyone is doing well.

22w5d...50th post

Yes, I am still here. I am sorry if I've been so quiet lately--works been so busy that it leaves me no time to blog(which is probably a good thing....keeps me out of trouble) and then we had computer problems at home-our hard drive crashed!! Not a good thing, it was out of commission for over a week while they replace the hard drive.

Anyway, I am still alive, 22w5d today. I am feeling pretty good for the most part. The calf muscle spasms are back!! Urg. It's wakes me up at night-but I guess since I am not sleeping well anyway, what is the difference. I just feel bad because S wakes up every time I clinch and scream! I noticed that my appetite increased the last couple of weeks, but I am not craving anything yet. I don't know if this will change. I did notice that there were certain type of foods that I used to like (like a bag of chips) that I just do not care about anymore--it just doesn't appeal to me anymore. Funny what p does to your body.

We also started thinking about the nursery. We are getting a free crib--I love free things-from my cousin so I am really happy about that. One less thing we have to buy. I started looking into nursery decorations only to realize that there are really not a lot of things out there that are gender neutral. I guess most people find out the sex of the baby in this day in age and there are very few people who opt not to. Anyway, I did manage to find something that I like. We are headed to register on Monday--S is really looking forward to this...yeah right!!. I figured might as well do it now while I still feel good and have some energy.

Anyway, I hope everyone is doing well. Just want to give everyone an update of what is going on with me.
