Normally in the morning, I LOVE eating some kind of grain. Cereal and fruit, egg and toast, waffles, english muffin with peanut butter. I JUST LOVE BREAD Y’ALL.
But this morning I wanted something healthy and protein-packed rather than carb-loaded. So I made this completely easy meal that…
28 weeks! Not much to report. Had my 28 week appointment yesterday. Heart rate is good and uterus is growing. Baby’s head is all the way down in my pelvis so let’s hope she stays that way? Although I do have a ways to go so who knows.
Still don’t know my weight gain because I won’t let them tell me. I’m such a weirdo! I just don’t want to obsess about it more than I already do. I’m starting to feel slightly bummed about the fact that I’ll only have 6 weeks of maternity leave. FMLA protects your job for 12 weeks but I would only get paid for 6 of those weeks with using up all the vacation hours I’ll have accrued and using some disability (which is only 60% of your pay). I would have loved to be off for 12 weeks to cherish those first moments and months of Ava’s life but I don’t think it can happen. We cannot be without my paycheck for 6 weeks when we have a new baby and likely a new house. Boo :(
Ava is kicking so much tonight and I love it :)
Ummmm. So is it bad that I am going to be 28 weeks pregnant on tuesday and not only have I not had any baby showers yet but I also do not have anything for the baby and have not even began to do ONE thing for a nursery? I did a search for ‘28 weeks’ and I see all these mommy-to-be’s working on their nurseries/almost done with their nurseries/washing baby clothes etc. And I’m just like ‘yea cool, I bought a receiving blanket and have like 3 onesies’.
So far I know I am having a baby shower on January 5th in NY (where I am from and where my family lives). I am sure that my friends and/or MIL will also throw me a shower here in NJ. I would imagine that would be maybe the weekend after the NY shower. This means I won’t have any baby stuff until then. I don’t know….should I be MORE stressed? I really don’t feel that stressed about it but now I’m wondering if I should be, haha.
Like I have said before, we are in a little bit of a different situation since we don’t know when we are moving. Ava will be sleeping in a bassinet in our room for awhile and I am not making her legit nursery here in this house since we won’t be here long. Maybe that is why I am not that stressed.
28 weeks on tuesday though, wow! I can’t believe it. I have an OB appt that day and then I have to start every 3 week visits. I’m not excited about that because I think going to the OB is annoying! I have been feeling fine I guess….still just a lot of damn heart burn. Feeling lazy. It’s getting a bit harder to bend over really far haha.
I am looking forward to the holiday season! Hoping to cut down our tree next weekend and then get to work on shopping and wrapping! I know that before I know it December will be over and I will be soooo sad. I get so sad when Christmas is over!! It just feels like such a magical time of year. Although now I have Ava to look forward to so something tells me I won’t mind it QUITE as much :)
I’m so sad. Rip Paul Walker.
Nooooooo. Soooooo sad!! RIP! Such a beautiful man!
