Week 26- anticipation

Week 26~ July 29-August 4th

Well this week was a simple week… not a lot of ups and downs. I was restricted from purchasing any baby stuff because my Shower was on Aug 5th (Sunday). My mom hates it when I go out shopping before a big event so I tried to be REALLY good. It is getting harder and harder not to buy every cute frilly outfit in sight though.
On wed we went to an African Concert at the Zoo and that was a lot of fun! Edwin and his brother were really excited to go! It was great to just get out of the house and do something spontaneous. Lately I have felt overwhelmed with work and the stress of getting everything prepared so it was nice to have a night out and have some fun! As most of you know my work is closing. It has been a bittersweet mixture of feelings for me. I am happy that I can be on unemployment and spend extra time with the baby. But I am also nervous about our financial situation. My last day is Sept 14th (I finally got a set date!) The majority of our site was given their last day notice for August 10th sooo on Friday the 3rd our work had a Bon Voyage party. They let everyone off the phones for 2 hours to eat a catered lunch and have awards. It was really a nice setting and it was good to get to say goodbye to come people that I don’t see on a regular basis. I have been with this company for 2 years and a lot of these people have been very involved with my life so it will be hard to not see them all on a daily basis. But we plan to keep in touch!
On Saturday I went to Nissa’s going away party and also Lorie’s daughter Hailey’s 6th Birthday party. By Saturday night I was wiped out and ready for a good nights sleep.
The baby has been moving a lot now. I feel her the most in the early morning (around 5:00 when I am at work) and then in the evening when I am relaxing with Edwin watching TV or going to bed. Watermelon is still my favorite! I think we go through at least 3 watermelons a week. I also love fresh fruit so farmers market has been my friend. It is definitely getting harder and harder to find a comfortable position when I am sleeping. My belly is seems to be the hardest at night. I also have to get up at least 4 times a night to go to the bathroom. Oh the joys of pregnancy! But I love every minute of it! Well that is about it! I have my next doctor appointment on Friday the 10th and they are going to do the blood sugar test on me so wish me luck!
