Re: August 2013~ weekly chat ~ 1/28-2/3

When I was in labor with my son, I didn't want to tell anyone (other than DH, of course) I was in labor until I was admitted to the hospital. I didn't want to be answering phone calls about how things were progressing, etc. Turns out we got to the hospital and delivered in the middle of the night, so no calls were made until morning. MIL was shocked, and didn't even believe DH when he called her in the morning. She got over it, though. It made me realize that I really don't want anyone at the hospital (even in the waiting room) until after baby is born and we've had time to rest/bond as a family. This time we'll have to tell MIL when I'm in labor so she can come watch our son, though.

When I was in labor with DS we took DD to my parents house. They are pretty laid back, so it was understood that we would call or text them when we knew more. Otherwise, no one else knew I was in labor until DS was here. It was AWSOME!

Poo....I never answered the QOTW!!!

AOTW: Usually I garden during the summer to put up veggies for the winter months, but since I'll be big yet again I get out of it. DH will have to hire someone to help or he'll just plant nothing but corn to sell. It's not that I HATE the gardening, since it's nice to have all the veggies that I want later in the year, but it is a LOT of hard work....canning, freezing, picking, shelling, etc.

What I like to do during the summer is camp and cook-out. DH and I love to camp and have a very small camper, but unless we go camping during the spring there won't be any camping this summer. I'll be huge and the last time that we tried with the kids they all got home sick. Cook-outs we can still do, though!

12 weeks for me today

Going to try to garden again this summer even though i'll be big and hot ( i have 3 raised beds, and 1 raised bed that we are dedicating to strawberries only - so hopefully we'll get some this year!).

Re: August 2013~ weekly chat ~ 1/28-2/3

last night I took a shower at 6pm and crashed in bed at 630! My heart was pounding really weird and my stomach hurt.

I was in and out of sleep from 630 last night to 830 this morning.

DS has no school today so we are just lounging around the house.

Mine has been doing that for almost 5 weeks now. My blood pressure fluctuates and I get out of breath just walking down the hall and my heart sounds like I've run a marathon.

We went to Seattle last weekend for the day and I had 3yo DS (35lb) on my back for almost three hours and I thought I was going to die LOL. We finally ducked into Starbucks and I got him down and held him on the table while he slept so I could get a break. My back still hurts and I feel like I am being split like a wishbone.

We went to Westlake Center so I could buy bento boxes at Daiso and then down to the waterfront and the Aquarium. Next time we go, it is going to be an overnight trip. It is too far for one day, IMO... especially while pregnant. I was wiped out and ready for a nap by the time we got there.
