Just Chillin'

I haven't had much to update on lately. Everything is going swimmingly. I am thoroughly enjoying being pregnant. I've been blessed with very little morning sickness. I haven't thrown up any, just dry heaved a few times. Not bad at all, though! I've had some abdominal cramping, but nothing I can't handle. I guess the worst symptom I've been having is that I'm exhausted all of the time. I can't seem to get enough sleep. I've always been a really great sleeper. When we went to Ukraine all those times during my teenage years, I never had jet lag. Not once. I was having restless nights before I became pregnant which I had blew off as stress related because of infertility and finances. Since then, nothing. I have slept like a baby every single night and I HATE getting up in the mornings....more than I used to.

I have my final appointment with Obi-Wan Kenobi tomorrow. I have mixed feelings about this. I really love my doc and I don't particularly want to leave. Also, I love the staff. I love being able to go into a clinic and carry on a conversation with everyone about things other than my medical charts. They are so wonderful and I'm afraid once I go to an OB clinic, it won't be like that. I loved being able to connect with the clinic even though the reason I was there stunk. I know Obi-Wan won't steer me wrong. I trust him in whoever he picks to refer me to. I guess we'll just wait and see what happens.

About the daycare thing, I'm over that. I know I'm totally lucky to have even got to this point and if putting our baby in daycare is the way it has to be, I'll deal. I'm sorry I went off about that. I know my infertile blogger friends were probably rolling their eyes at me and what I have created into a big deal. I'm getting my baby and that's all that matters right now.

Until Next Time
Stay Cool Blogger Buddies!

Hey! I am glad to hear that you are doing so well! You are very lucky about the throw up thing.... my sister had all-day-long sickness with her pregnancy, and it really seemed to stink.
Maybe you can do something special for obi-wan and co. to commemorate your final visit. I am sure they would appreciate it. After all, they never get to see their patients to fruition, so they might be sad too.
As for your infertile commentary, don't sweat it. We have not gotten our chance yet, but I can assure you, we have thought about how we can make this work when it does. We live in an expensive part of the U.S., so the daycare topic has come up a time or two. I know that you and Russ will find a wonderful place for your teddy bear. You clearly have strong ties to your community (exception "Coworker") which is sure to give you a lot of good choices.
