<<A13 March Siggy Challenge: Luck of the Irish>>
Having a husband that works a job he dislikes for a family he loves.
Although we will be moving to a bigger city, closer to family, with more job opportunity. So I'm hoping he'll get a job he likes.
Cliche answer here as well, my husband. He has been beyond amazing since I have been on bedrest. He goes above and beyond what I ask him to do and will even wake up (its hard not to as I am as quiet as a herd of elephants) to help me out of bed so I can pee and while I am peeing he will run and make me a snack. I know that sounds random but thats my MO. Get up, pee, make a snack, back to bed.
I am also thankful I have an awesome OB. He was on call last week and had to go to the hospital right before my appointment so it ended up being cancelled last week. He called and apologized (not that I was mad or anything like that) and has called twice since to make sure I was still doing ok and if I wanted to be seen before my next appointment (I go weekly so it just made me giggle).
Looks like this might be a Thankful for SO Tuesday.
I am so thankful for DF. He very unwillingly went to a Lamaze class with me last Saturday and later admitted he "enjoyed it". He kept his promise to quit smoking cigarettes before baby girl's arrival, and even with working long hard hours here lately.. He understands I'm feeling very uncomfortable and does everything he can to make me feel "better".
I'm also thankful my mom is going to be back in town. She's been gone for the past month and I really miss her and now that I know she will be home later today, I don't feel as nervous about going into labor while shes 12 hours away. I know, I still have 3 weeks.. but pregnancy anxiety gets the best of me sometimes.
Tessa Jane arrived 7/10/13 - 6.5 weeks early!
Married to the love of my life 8/14/09 Our sweet little Easton was born at home 3/15/12 Suprise BFP! 09/20/12 natural m/c 10/09/12 Baby Heidi was born at home (picture perfect homebirth!) 7/28/13
BlondieBia21:Today is full of cliches... I'm thankful for my fi who makes everyday better. I'm thankful for my parents who weren't too excited ab baby at first, but now they already can't picture life without her. And finally, as much as they drive me bonkers, I am thankful for the in laws. They do care ab us, and I know we should be happier that we have them, instead of annoyed.
Also, I'm thankful for captain crunch cereal.
Its totally ok and normal (IMO) to feel both for your ILs. I love mine to death and know that no matter what, if we need something they will be there but the little things they do (and sometimes big) that really get under my skin. At the end of the day I wouldnt trade them off for anything.
Today, I'm thankful that I was able to paint my toenails last night. haha. I found just the right height chair with just the right height box to prop my feet on. Hopefully this self pedi lasts the next two weeks/until delivery.
I'm going to follow the trend of this Tuesday and say I'm super thankful for DH. Although he has his moments (as we all do), he has really stepped up the past few weeks and has been super sweet and helpful.
I am also super thankful for our basement, which has been my savior in this heat since our house does not have AC. I literally am in the basement almost all day (when I'm not trying to clean) aside from coming upstairs to make dinner.
Lastly, I am very very thankful for ice cream!
DH's BFF (ha) is getting married in two weeks. He has been texting him daily marriage advice. He let me hear some of them and they're actually really good. It's interesting to remember the things that have led us to these tips as he's reading them to me. We've come a long way in 5 years!
Thankful that I work inside with AC. For those that don't, I am so, so sorry!
I'm thankful for a SIL always willing to help out. the painter is starting today on our basement and we both work so she is house sitting. She also hosted our shower and has given us tons of things for the LO already.
I'm thankful for technology and my sweet grandparents. My 85 year old grandparents are learning the computer and I got my first e-mail from my grandma last night. it was the cutest thing ever. they are in texas so I don't get to see them or talk to them as often as I'd like.
I am thankful for a day off today with DS. We are mainly going to lounge around the house and may run to the store. Also thankful for my job. It's a great company to work for with a lot of perks and pretty good maternity leave options.
mommabmb:Working at an orthopedic center. My H is having surgery today that he needs and would have cost us thousands!

Sending thoughts and prayers for your dh! Hope it all goes well!
Thanks! He is groggy and milking it, but I am relieved it is over. It ended up being much more in-depth than planned, and I'm very thankful for the place I work helping and being flexible.
I'm thankful LO is healthy and doing very well in there. Seeing her at the u/s on sunday was amazing, esp. watching her lungs "breathe" and her mouth moving.
I'm also thankful that DH's hard work paid off and he got his promotion yesterday.
Today I am thankful my symptoms of pre-e have not gotten worst. I ended up in L&D on Sunday after having contractions for 14 hours, high blood pressure, excessive swelling of my face, legs, and hands. I was so dizzy and nauseated. Baby had also stopped moving. After 2 hours of being on the monitors, the contractions stopped and baby started moving again. What a relief. The nurse was about the call the doc in. Saw my OBGYN yesterday and the protein levels in my urine aren't rising so he told me to take it easy. As much as I just want to hold my baby in my arms and know everything is okay, he/she is not ready to come out and it is still too early.
I will follow suit and also say how thankful I am for DH. Especially after having such a rough week last week. We decided to take the weekend and focus on ourselves. He really opened up about his feelings of depression and how he has been taking everything out on me. He really regrets the big move we made for our careers last year and expressed his feelings of returning to his old job and moving back to be close to my family. He contacted his old boss and I really hope this works out for us. We would be much happier.
