People can be so cruel! I was working for this one woman, who is obviously a little uncomfortable that I'm pregnant. But is that any reason to call my office and LIE??? She couldn't come right out and say she was afraid for me being pregnant and all, so she called and told them I wasn't doing my job and could have gotten me in trouble. I guess I'm feeling a little better with my cold. I'm still very stuffy, but then I have been for most of this whole pregnancy.. so I guess I shouldn't be surprised by that. Hoping it clears up quick. And now I have only 4 more weeks of work and then I'm officially done until this child shows up. YAY!!

Well, I forgot to mention that I had my 1 hr glucose test on Friday, and I'm thinking that since I haven't heard back, then I must have passed. I also had to go upstairs from the lab to L&D and get my Rhogam shot. I don't think I've ever had a shot that was as uncomfortable as that one. Not even a tetanus. Oh well. Today I'm not feeling so great. Got that cold that's going around I think. But I'll have to drag myself out tonight so we can go to our first childbirth class. I would like to feel a little more at ease about what's going to happen when I do go into labor. I guess I'm getting a little tense since It's coming so quickly now.

Wow, sure been a long time since I bothered to come on and update anything. Christmas is finally over, and I think I feel a little better for it. The baby is very active when I'm sitting down... and actually she was pretty active yesterday evening, while I was standing up. We finished all our gift giving today, and we had a very nice Christmas Everyone was so nice this year. I'm sure we'll have loads more fun next year with the baby here to enjoy.

Wow... I have really bad heartburn today! I'm really not liking this. I ate a banana... that shouldn't make me feel like this. But I guess it is, I'll have to buy tums when I go to the store for groceries this week. At least my asthma isn't acting up. And actually, Mom told me that if I have heartburn that maybe you'll have a baby with hair. She said that she had wicked heartburn with me... and I had loads of hair. So Woo Hoo... maybe I don't have to look at a bald baby girl!!

So it's Thursday... again. I'm making cookies for work tomorrow. You'd think after making all those cookies on Saturday, there'd be enough, but there aren't. So more eggnog cookies for the office.Still not sleeping well. Nervous and excited. I can't believe how close March is. Plus, I pee all the time, so that keeps me from sleeping. My back aches too.. but such I guess is what happens when you're pregnant. I'll just be happy when we can hold her... and I'm told that will make it all worth it.

I guess I'm feeling a little blue today. Half my work got cancelled this morning, so I only got up to go to work for 1 1/2 hours. Seems like a waste. Also didn't get a lot of sleep last night. Think our little one is sleeping on my bladder. Seems like I had to go everytime I stopped moving. And my hips ache... none of that is good for sleeping. I guess I'll be glad when I can finally hold her and not get kicked everywhere. Or she can kick someone else for a change.Too bad it's only Monday... only 4 more days until the weekend.

Wrapped christmas presents today... and I think I'll finish shopping next week. Unfortunately the cats seem to think that wrapping paper rolls are toys... and I couldn't keep them away from me.Baby isn't moving very much this morning... must be extra tired or something. Am counting down the days until I can go on maternity leave. Work is stressing me out so much, and its taking it's toll of course. Thank goodness for long weekends coming up the end of this month.

Well the weekend is finally here, and boy am I happy. My feet are so swollen, I'm just miserable today. But I made cookies to take to work this week, and made out Christmas cards, so none of my clients will feel forgotten. Did some Christmas shopping also, which is one of my favorite things to do, this week. Got some really great gifts, don't know if I can wait two more weeks to share them with people!Our little girl is still moving quite a bit. In fact the other night, I was sure I was in "Alien" and something was going to come flying out of my stomach. It was crazy, but kinda cool all the same.

Had my dr's appt today, and I'm somewhat frustrated with him. I am concerned about all the swelling I'm getting, and he basically said there was nothing wrong with me. I'm pregnant, a little sympathy would go a long way here. That's what I get for going to a man doctor. I guess I need a nap, and a second opinion on everything.

Feeling a little better today actually. Took some of the pills they gave me at the hospital last night... and I actually don't feel too bad. She's moving quite a bit this morning, and I think that by tomorrow she may actually move off my nerve. I would appreciate that, since so far, a week of this is not a whole lot of fun. Besides I want to do some Christmas shopping.We are going to Michael's today to look at some stuff for the baby shower. I can't believe it's only like 6 weeks away. As much as I want time to go by fast it seems like it's not, and then you think about it. I only have 14 weeks to go. I guess that's not so long. So here's hoping I feel better so I can get some work done for a change. I have a Dr's appointment tomorrow, so I guess we'll see what he says about work in general. Have had some swelling, and I know that's not a good sign.

Wow! I just signed on.. and it tells me I have 100 days left. How amazing is that? I have been feeling like time is standing still for me... but I guess that can't be possible since I think the first time I read it, it said 206, where did those other hundred days go? I guess It's nice to know there's only 100 left. Still not feeling well... but I guess that's to be expected. I'm hoping that she decides to move off my nerve so I can get some actual work done. I feel awful not going to work as much as I should... but I guess most of them understand.

Generally feeling lousy! Was in the ER yesterday at 5AM because my stupid OB can't be bothered to be in his office. I am having terrible pain in my back and all the way down my leg. They tell me it's sciatica... but I could have saved myself a trip if he'd been where he was supposed to be and just told me over the phone. I don't know enough not to worry about excruciating pain! Good thing I'll be done with him soon enough. Then I'll never have to go see him again. Here's hoping she moves herself off my sciatic nerve so I can finally go to work tomorrow!
