I spent practically the whole weekend laid-up on the couch. This is time #2 of being sick during this pregnancy. I guess I should consider myself lucky b/c some people are sick for the whole first 3 months. I have a cold this time around. Last time it was a stomach-bug. Being sick & pregnant is worse than being just normal & pregnant b/c #1 I can't just take any/every kind of medicine all day long & #2 I worry all day everyday, until I am not sick any more that this poor little baby feels half as crappy as I do. But, the doctor says the baby is fine, so I am sure he/she is.
Before feeling 110% awful on Saturday, Matt & I made a trip to Babies R Us to get the baby a coming-home outfit. I eyed one up on Thursday afternoon that I just couldn't stop thinking about. I literally lost sleep on Thursday night thinking about how I should have gotten it. So luckily they had it at the one at Exton & Daddy picked out the little girl outfit. Needless to say, our baby will be quite stylish for his/her first appearance in the real world. Mommy wouldn't have it any other way. I can't wait to know the sex, just for the pure fact that I want to go to H&M baby & get some fabulously stylish baby clothes!
While I was laying on the couch all weekend, Daddy finished up some loose ends in the nursery. He hung the blinds, curtains, hooks & 2 canvas's that our friend Jen painted for the baby. It looks great now with the little details. Now we just need the cross-stitch that Grandma Sitko is making & once the baby is born I want to paint letters with his/her name on them & hang them above the crib.
Other than that, life is moving along swiftly. I remember when we first found out that we were pregnant saying "Oh it will be here before we know it...first Thanksgiving, then Christmas, then the baby!" And here we are, only a few days away from Thanksgiving!
I feel so grateful this year. Maybe more-so from in the years past b/c everything is so concrete now. I have a beautiful house that Matt, Cameron & I have made into our home, I have an amazingly loving & supportive husband who I fall asleep & wake up next to EVERY morning, I have a stepson who is just growing in every way, every day to be a more & more amazing little boy, I have a sweet puppy who drives me crazy sometimes, but makes me smile & laugh numerous times a day, parents who love & support all 3.5 of us in every way, and a sweet little baby inside of me who reminds me in his/her own way every day that I am his/her Mommy & taking care of him/her in helping him/her grow to be a healty, happy little person & something alot of people do not have right now, financial stability. Matt & I are so so so fortunate to have GREAT jobs, which really makes a difference in our everyday lives.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! Be sure to take some time to reflect on how lucky you are for everything that you may have. I have so much & I truly cannot say that I do not have anything that I want/need at this point in my life.
