A nap has been on my mind all day. I got spoiled and took a nap friday and saturday afternoon. Sunday I didn’t get my nap because I helped MIL make a few batches of christmas cookies. However, when I went back to work I haven’t been able to and I have been feeling it. My mother says I need to eat more protein, but sometimes I am not hungry and it’s hard finding things that I can eat (from stuff I can eat for ibs and stuff I can eat in pregnancy). I’m trying to find prepackaged things that I can just grab and eat with little preparation like precooked chicken strips and precooked chicken patties, but I haven’t liked either of them that much. I’m going to have a peanut butter sandwich on thursday and see how that goes. Yes, I know I should make a big batch of something on the weekend. However, the last couple weekends have been so busy.
Speaking of being tired, my boss talked to me today about possibly doing another project on top of the hours I already do. I’m lucky in that I only work part time and can jiggle my hours to work whenever I want. However, I have been tired after just doing my normal hours, I’m not sure I want to add more. Though supposedly after the first trimester I am supposed to wake up some, but I’m not sure how long the project will last. Maybe only a month or two.
I finally made an appointment with an ob. It’s official. I will go in at 11 weeks. They mailed me the paperwork to fill out and I was excited when I saw it. It was the sheet I read in my job of all the women’s prenatal records. It’s finally my prenatal sheet with my information. I know what annoys me when people don’t fill in certain sections so I’m going to try to fill it out the best I can. My RE has to fax my records over to the OB. I laugh when I think of the person faxing my records over. I have been with my RE for so long and I’m sure my file is thick with all my cycles and other stuff. I am sure it will be a long and arduous process faxing all my records. I think they might do better just xeroxing it and mailing them.
I talked to my mother today and she was feeling sad because I live so close to the hubby’s family (45minutes) compared to where my parents live (2 and a half hours away). She was feeling like our child will like hubby’s family more because he/she will see them more. I told my mom that isn’t true and that she should just come up more. I also said that my mom could stay with us when I do give birth (I really hope I make it to that) for a while and she can help. My mother is so excited to come stay and to help clean, cook, and teach me how to do stuff. She was a pediatric nurse for the longest time and also has pcos.
Only four more weeks and I’m out of the first trimester! Please please let everything go ok and have nothing go wrong. Next scan is on friday. An yes, this blog entry was boring lol.
