Here's some updates and funny stuff.
- No gestational diabetes. Yay! That stuff you have to drink is icky. I'm glad they don't make you take that test in beginning.
- I haven't let the name slip yet. It's driving mom crazy, but it's been fun for Josh and I.
- She kicks and moves all the time. She kicked all the way home during our 5 hour drive from Athens, GA. Last week I actually saw my tummy move. It was weird because she apparently was doing double axles and triple somersaults. It looked like a groundhog building a tunnel under my skin.
- I had my first shower. It was given by the related arts teachers at Station Camp. It was wonderful. I had asked for gift cards to Babies R Us. Hoping that maybe we could buy some of the nursery furniture. We received enough gift cards to buy the dresser and the crib. We only had to pay $85 out of our own pocket! Love,love, love you Station Camp and H.B.W.E teachers and staff! We couldn't have done it without you.
- This has nothing to do with the baby, but I'm sitting here on a super rainy, stormy day and the ice cream man just went down the street. The only thing that I could maybe think might stop would be the millions of cats and dogs it's been raining.
- The doctor says that I'm doing well as far as my weight is concerned. I go back to the doctor for another ultrasound on June 1st. Maybe she won't look so much like an alien to Josh this time. Maybe she'll even wave and say how she can't wait to see the outside of my body and her daddy.
- Josh and I believe her first words will be Pedro. That's our cat. We say and yell his name a lot. He also likes to sit on her (my tummy).
- We bought hardwood flooring for her room this week. Josh and Bryan are going to install it on Monday. Then hopefully we can paint the walls.
- I realized the other day that taking care of your child never ends. Even when they are 28 years old. I realized this as was I sitting in my car behind the dumpter at Hardee's waiting for my mom and dad to come get me because I had just regurgitated everything I had just ate all over myself and the car.
- And last but not least some stories about my students.
Yesterday a 1st grader told me he could see my baby coming out. Hopefully he was speaking of my expanding tummy.
One of my sweet special needs students realized after hugging me that something was different about my stomach. He asked, "What is that?" as he pointed at my stomach. I said there is a baby growing in my tummy. He wanted to see the baby and thus a tug of war began. He trying to pull my shirt up and me trying to keep it down. This went on in the lobby of the school during kindergarten registration for what seemed like eternity. I eventually won and ran away as fast as I could.
