I was digging through pictures this last weekend to find baby pictures to put side by side of DH and I and came across this precious gem of dad snuggling me circa '89. Melts my heart every time I look at it!
Is it too early to start maternity leave three months before the baby is due? Because pregnancy brain, and I don't feel like working.
I always told people what week I'm in when they've asked... as it was much easier than me trying to remember what month it equaled to since I never remembered. Right before the 3rd trimester started, I would say that and let them figure it out. Less work for me. *lol*
I only have 6 more weeks of work until I'm out on leave. And all but one of those weeks are all 4-day weeks due to having to use my remaining vacation days before I go on leave. Yay for some Fridays and Mondays off. I am now happy for those remaining vacation days, as well as having 3 weeks and a day off before I'm due.
I may get bored during that time, but I can always go for a walk around the mall or something. Oh, I can become a mall walker like my parents do in the winter months! I am sure I will get bored sitting around, but I'll worry about that when time comes. I know one day will be for Christmas decorating and then some freezer meal planning just cos I have the time. I may also plan out some fun suppers for DH, since he is usually the one who cooks.
@fauxpa I got the flu shot yesterday and just have a very sore arm today. I get the TDAP 10/18, as I opted NOT to have them done at the same time. I know everyone is different, but good to know there may be some symptoms to look for after it's done. My appointment is in the afternoon, so I'll be leaving work early and not coming back - which my be a good idea.
Edit: To add - FTM here and it will be in the start of winter when DS is born - and we're supposed to have a more average winter (cold temps and lots of snow) compared to the last couple of years (mild temps, not much snow). I don't plan on bringing him outside unless I absolutely need to. Again, maybe to the mall so I can walk around and a few errands here and there but that will be it. SIL thinks we'll be over all the time, as we do go there at least once a week to hang out with our nephews (and see them too, but more so the nephews)... and I'm like, Um.. no?! You can visit us.
I had an apple and peanut butter, but now I'm just eating the peanut butter...with a fork because that's all I had. Tomorrow I imagine I'll just be scooping it out of the jar with my hands.
M&Ms are a food group, right?
@Fauxpa thanks. They tried to push the flu vaccine on me today, too. I politely told them to go to hell. 2 shots that I know are painful is enough for 1 day. I don't remember feeling this way with the TDaP before,but doesn't mean it didn't happen,
