This week has been busy and fun so far. Monday Judah and I helped with the childcare for MomsNext. It was busy, slightly chaotic and a very long time for 9 children, ages 3 and under to be hanging out in one room (9:15-1pm). I'm glad we were able to help, though.
Tuesday was our first day of MOPS for this year and it was wonderful to be back at it. It's my first year as a table leader and I was nervous. I have a great group of ladies at my table though and they made me feel totally comfortable. I know this year is going to be great and I can't wait to strengthen old friendships and build some new ones. Judah is out of the nursery this year and in the one year old classroom. He has a fantastic group of teachers and when I went to pick him up, it looked like he'd been having a great time playing with all the kids and fun toys.
Today we just stayed home and did chores. I vacuumed, did laundry, dishes, bla, bla, bla. At firt it felt a little lonely to just stay home after having such a social start to the week. It was good though, we needed to get some stuff done and it's not good for me to feel like I need to be out and about everyday.
In pregnancy news, I'll be 36 weeks on Sunday. The baby is very low and I'm having a hard time sleeping at night. I wake up every time I move. I get up to pee about every 3 hours or more. I guess the only good thing about not sleeping well is that it's getting me ready to be awake during the night with a newborn. It was pretty easy for me to get Judah sleeping well at night and I'm hoping it's going to be the same with this baby girl.
This pregnancy has been pretty easy for the most part but, today my wedding ring is feeling really tight and it really makes me sad. I wanted to be able to wear it until I gave birth but, I might be starting to swell too much. I hope it's better tomorrow. I really don't want to take it off.... :( I asked my husband if my tummy looks different during this pregnancy than with Judah. He said that her movements look much more "pokey". I don't know how to describe it but, it does seem like she is more just "under my skin" than Judah was. Sometimes I see an entire foot or knee go across the right side of my upper stomach.
I find my mind consumed with thoughts of my upcoming labor and what this delivery will be like. I wonder if it'll be fast, like it was with Judah or if it'll be totally different. I'm excited to have her here and to get used to being a mother of 2.
This is random but, do you ever find yourself doing something that your kids do? Judah does this funny dance where he shakes both arms around in the air. Well, a good song just came on the TV and sure enough, I start flapping both arms around in the air. Good thing no one saw that.
