Feeling big

I know that I have 3 more months to go, but I feel huge. I have never weighed this much, and I know I am pregnant and am supposed to gain weight, but it just feels odd. I was on such a work out kick before getting pregnant and had lost a bunch of weight, it is a little odd feeling. I still work out at least 3 times a week, so that makes me happy.

John and I had a great anniversary last night. We ate at Doc Pierce's, which was delicious. Their shrimp appetiser was so good. We both had steak and a baked potato, with Snickers cheesecake for dessert. YUM-O!

After dinner he took me shopping at Burlington Coat Factory, they have a large maternity and baby section. I was able to get a shirt and a Christmas gift for my nephew. Yes, I am Christmas shopping. We have my sister and her family done, YIPPEE! Have a great rest of the week and a good weekend!

I had a great weekend, I was able to drive to Richmond, Indiana and spend the weekend with my sister and her family as well as my mother. My nephew is getting so big, and he is just too adorable, especially when he sleeps :) I am trying to find a romantic restaurant in South Bend area for Wednesday. It is our 3rd anniversary and I want to take him someplace neither of us have been, any suggestions?

Unexpected News

I had my doctor visit today, which went well. He said that the placenta was not completely covering the uterus, so I won't require a c-section! WOOHOO! That makes me happy. I was getting used to the idea, but am glad I don't have to go that route. He did say that I am measuring 27 weeks, when in theory I should only be 23 weeks. So either I am going to have a large child or I am due sooner. The ultrasound had the baby at normal weight, so I might be due the beginning of January. He will check me out at the next visit to see what I measure and make a decision then. Weird...

New Little One

John and I are proud to announce that we will have a new little niece or nephew come June. WOOHOO! His brother, Jerry and sister-in-law, Kasey are expecting another little bundle of joy. They already have 3 girls and are praying for a boy, either way this will be their last child. Congrats guys!

I have been having more back pain lately, I think the last time I cleaned house, Tuesday of last week, I pushed it a little hard. I was on my hands and knees cleaning out the corners or our basement. I can't stand cobwebs, they drive me nuts, and once I start, I can't stop. Tonight I have to complete laundry and do my workout. I have been trying to get on my elliptical 3 times a week, I should have done it this morning, but I was not ready to get out of bed! I have been searching for a maternity jacket lately, anyone have one they wouldn't mind loaning me? Or advice on where to get one?? Saturday John and I met my mom at Michigan City, half way point, to eat lunch. We decided to go to the outlet mall. I was able to get a maternity shirt and some clothing items for our little bambino. He is kicking and moving a lot more during the day. It is so fun to feel that, I can't wait for John to feel it as well! We had John's 32nd birthday yesterday, and I was able to get his friends together for dinner at Logan's. We had a blast and then had cake and ice cream at a friend's house. 5 months down, here is me as of today...

I am disappointed. The child care provider that we visited last night was so nice! But there are two concerns that we have. One she is not CPR certified, which is not a deal breaker for us, because she at least used to be. The second one however is an issue. She has cats, not just one or two, but John counted around 10, not including ones that might have been behind closed doors with her sons. My father-in-law is allergic, plus I just don't have good history with cats. We have another interview with someone else next Wednesday, so I am hoping that it goes well. I wish my mom would retire and move closer so she could watch him, it would be much easier!

Day Care Provider

We meet with a potential day care provider this evening. I am nervous and excited at the same time. I hope that she is as good in person as she was on the phone, the only thing I worry about it the price, since the economy is not doing well. I am also coming to terms with some news from my doctor. I may have to have a c-section to deliver this baby due to a potential medical risk. However there is still the possibility that the issue will resolve itself and I can deliver naturally, which is what I am hoping for. We will do whatever needs to be done to have a healthy child, but I wasn't expecting the possibility of needing a c-section. Did anyone else have one? Any advice??
