Things with the house are really moving along. We have our granite installed and now we are knocking out walls to make room for the fireplace. I must admit there were some times when I wasn't sure if my house was still going to be standing, however, everything seems to be going well. Our goal is to have everything finished by Christmas because then we will need to work on getting things ready for the sweet baby. I will upload pictures to this blog to show you our work in progress!
On the baby side of things......things have been going well. I have another doctors appointment next week. I have been experiencing some of the not so pleasant things about pregnancy. Depending on if I am working my feet have started to swell, but not very bad (just bad enough to convince Jeremy and my wonderful mom to give me a foot massage every once in a while). Baby has been moving around a lot and I have been enjoying that. I haven't been as hungry lately, but I also haven't been able to find exactly what I want to eat! Nothing is appealing to me right now. The other thing I wanted to address was the issue with people and the baby bump. I have gotten bigger to where I feel I look pregnant but apparently to others they aren't so sure yet. I have been around a few other pregnant ladies where people would ask them when they are due or what they are having and then just look at me like its not happening, or people are staring at my belly but don't approach the subject (which just makes it awkward). There are some days I feel like wearing a sign that says "No I am not just gaining weight now that I am married...I am pregnant!" Jeremy and I sit around and kinda giggle about it if it was really awkward because I don't take offense. I feel pretty good about where I am at with my weight I am right on target if not a little below and I am feeling good.
I am very sad that this Friday I will have to say goodbye to one of my best friends who is moving to Richmond. I am very excited for her because I know this is a wonderful move for her and her family, however, I want to be a little selfish and keep her here with me. I wouldn't be where I am today if it were not for her. She stole my credit card out of my purse and signed me up for my teaching license test because she knew I wouldn't do it. She encouraged me in to get my masters in teaching. I am going to miss her so much but I know that we will see each other at tech games and when I go shopping in Richmond. She is going to be the best stay at home mommy! I also get to be a sub for her (for the second time) until they find someone to take her place, which I am very excited about. I love her students so much and I am very excited to be able to work every day with them for a little while!
