Today the hub’s and I toured a day care center for little man. Wow. I couldn’t believe I was actually doing it and not a fraud. I will be taking 3 months maternity leave (some paid and some not), but after that I will be going back to work. I decided on this place because it is very close to my house and two of my co-workers have their kids there and they really like it. Their prices seem pretty reasonable too. I name dropped when I set up the tour in case that would give me a little bit of a heads up. It was neat to go in and see everything and the actual babies. I’m still in denial that I will really have one of those at the end of this. There is a waiting list though, which makes me nervous. The lady said that usually when they get to the waiting list most people have already found a spot by then so it might be easier to get in than I think, but no guarantees. This means I also need to put my name in somewhere else. I’m thinking of putting my name in at the center on my work’s campus, but I’m thinking it will be hard to get in there since most people that work there will want their kids there. Can’t hurt by trying though. I need to call and set that up. I spent some of the afternoon researching child care places near by and gave myself a headache. I tried looking up reviews and there is always someone saying something bad about a center.
This sunday is my hubby’s birthday so I am trying to do as many nice things for him as I can think of. I got his presents from amazon.com. While I was ordering his presents I wanted to get a little something special for myself. I thought I might get myself something pregnancy related as a treat, but I could not think of anything I wanted to get. I thought about getting one of the c shaped pregnancy pillows, but I already bought a rectangular body pillow that I don’t use that much because I just can’t get comfortable with it. I even was a nerd and googled how to use a body pillow. Maybe it’s too thick? Not sure. I just don’t want to buy another pillow, not like it, and then have two pillows on the floor that I’m not using. I ended up just buying a nice pink water bottle that is bpa free so that I will drink more water and not have to buy as my bottles of water. Still, can anyone think of a small something that made their pregnancy a little easier?
Not much else. Little man has been kicking more and more each day. I hope by saying that I don’t jinx it and he has a quiet day that might freak me out. I think I saw my first stretch mark starting. Boo on that. I bought some palmers so hopefully that will do the trick. Now all we need is for it to stop raining. It has been raining all day long.
