I'll be 23 weeks pregnant tomorrow (this will also be the beginning of my 6th month!)
I cut my hair off. I love it! It's so much easier to take care of when it's short.
I finally look like a pregnant chick.
Most importantly, my vacation was APPROVED by my doctor!
I had approximate dates scheduled for my trip to Louisiana but I couldn't make any real pans until I talked to my doctor. It just so happened that my glucose test day would fall during the time of that planned vacation. Luckily she said it was fine to push the test back a week and to go enjoy my summer fun!
I really don't think you realize how excited I am. I want to go pack my clothes right now but obviously I can't because the trip is still a few weeks away. I can't wait to see my family! I need to call my friends to schedule dinner dates! EEEEK so much happiness is inside me!
I'm super excited to eat when I get there. I actually have a list saved to my phone of all the places I want to eat. I doubt I'll actually eat at all of them but I can hope right?
- Genghis Grill
- Bistro Byronz
- I also need to eat crab legs with my mom AND crawfish
As my wonderful doctor was telling me how great and healthy Emily is all I was thinking was wooohooo I get to go home! I'm glad she's doing well of course. I just really really really miss my family! She wiggles around a lot now. Noah likes to sit on the couch with me and feel her move. He just laughs and laughs. Our neighbor is going to watch him while we are busy in the hospital having his sister. Well really I will be busy. This works out perfectly. She is super sweet. Noah plays with her daughter all the time. They are in the same grade and even the same class right now. It'll be easy for them to just send him off to school with her. If we have the baby on a school day that is... I feel better knowing we have a plan in place for Noah.
NOW back to my awesome vacation!
Joey is not going with us. He is saving his vacation time for when Emily is born. I will be taking the dog. So it will be me, Noah, and Bella on a long journey home. At Christmas time we made the trip in 15 hours. I'm not optimistic enough to think I can do that alone AND pregnant needing to stop and pee every hour. We will split the trip up into two days. Noah is very excited about staying at a hotel. He loves them lol.
I'm actually not nervous about the trip at all. I guess maybe because I'm used to traveling. I'm just excited to get on the road and get there!
Now I need to go make some phone calls!
