We've been forced into a massive spring cleaning the last few days, mainly due to the fact that I am completely irrational. The first step is admitting a problem, right? Anyway, I found a few little bugs the other day and decided that the whole house needed to be cleaned, top to bottom. It's been exhausting to say the least. Who needs to sleep anyway?
But I'm over that now and my slobbish tendencies will be back in full force within 24 hours I'm sure. Got a chance to work from home this afternoon. And it's a perfect day to be on the back deck with the laptop. My tulips are starting to come up, I just love this time of year.
Thanks to everyone for your reassurances on the whole braxton hicks thing. I agree, I don't think this particular nurse knew what she was talking about. I've had less than 1 a day since Monday and I've remembered my water bottle every day. And the new bras...wow. First I was a bit shocked at just what size the saleswoman brought me, but I got over it once I put them on. So much more comfortable. I will never wear a bra that is 2 sizes too small ever again...poor girls. And thanks for the advice on sleeping bras, I'm a total wuss and stared sleeping in a sports bra at about..oh....6 weeks. I was having enough trouble sleeping, no point in them waking me up too!
I made the mistake of wearing one of those more traditional maternity shirts to work yesterday. You know, the high empire waste that ties in the back. Mostly all of the tops I've bought have been the types that are just straight down with a little more room in the front. I was so self-conscious, I hated leaving my office, even more a minute. I felt like it put a great big neon sign on my belly screaming "Look at me". Everyone wanted to talk to me, comment on it, etc. I just hated it. Mr H gets upset, thinking I'm not excited about the pregnancy but it isn't that. I'm not comfortable being excited about it. I still don't believe it. I'm past the whole conspiracy theory of before and no longer think that my RE just wanted to get rid of me but I have a hard time fessing up to being pregnant. I saw my mom last night (she of course loved the top) and she said that I was starting to look pregnant. I immediately said that it was because of the top....she replied with, "It's because of the belly you idiot" (said with love...I hope). I guess despite the getting more obvious belly and feeling Q move just about every day, I still don't think this is going to work for us. I still need to work on having faith in the process and trusting Q.
Now is napping part of working from home???
