Busy, busy, busy. It seems like things will never slow down at this time of year. We start gearing up for year end at work. At home I have so many things I need to do and so many more I want to do and there is never enough time to get them all done. Right now I would love nothing more than a week at home alone without a toddler to distract me. My house is suffering from months of neglect. I have so many little projects that I want to complete. I have gifts that I wanted to actually make this year instead of buying and I’m not sure I’ll be able to get them done. I have a few more items left to shop for before Christmas. Oh, and a little sleep here and there would be nice too. I’m already looking forward to my maternity leave just because I know I’ll finally get some sleep – even if it is in two hour spurts!
Instead of going home and snuggling with the boy on the couch tonight, I have to attend a meeting that I really don’t want to go to. It isn’t something I have to go to, but something that I’ll feel guilty about later if I don’t attend. I would much rather spend the evening with my family, then snuggle in for some TV time and a little knitting.
I had my 24 week check-up today with my doctor. Everything is still looking great with this pregnancy. My belly is measuring perfectly and Baby G’s heart rate is still at 147. Next time I go in I have the dreaded Glucose test to look forward to. Then a few days after that we are going to have a 3D scan done and hopefully get a glimpse of her little face and confirm the sex again. Hubby is a little paranoid that our girl will come out a boy and wants to double check.
For a short time this morning I thought I just might be greeting a new niece by this evening, but it looks like that isn’t going to happen. It is actually a good thing because I think my Sister-in-law is only 36 weeks along and I would rather she let that little girl cook for a couple more weeks before popping her out. I think it scared my brother a bit though when he realized just how unprepared they actually are. I have a feeling they will be hurriedly getting baby things ready over the next couple of days. I was excited thinking that she may be here tonight, but it really is for the best that she waits.
