I went back to work on Monday and I gotta say I couldn't be happier to be getting up at 6:15 and going on about my day! It feels good to be back in my office even though this little one doesn't seem to like the sitting at my desk thing!
On a really exciting note, when I went back to work, there was really big news waiting for me. I am now the Assistant Director of Communications. This is big news for several reasons... one, being that its the direct path to becoming the Director next year with out having to go through the outside hiring process next. Two, it means that all this worrying about time off because of this pregnancy shouldn't interfere with my goals!
The garage remodel is going on full force around us... not as fast as Chris and I would like but at least its being done and done right... I hope! I decided on Saturday to paint the game room and man has that been an undertaking. Its freaking ridiculous that I will be on my fourth coat of paint tonight. UGH!
On the baby side of things... we are 18 weeks today and all is going well, its been well over a week since our last bleed and there has been very minimal spotting. Baby is moving and grooving everyday... Sometimes it takes me by such surprise. I mean I know I am pregnant... its kinda on my mind all the time but it sure brings a smile to my face when I feel this little one doing its little dance! I do hate the awful awful awful heartburn that I have. It seems never ending. So over it! I will take my 18 week pic tonight... Can't believe we have come so far! We will find out for sure what we are having on the 18th. Kaden is super excited, as we are going to let him go with us! We may have to put a sock in his mouth to keep him quiet! He is such a talker... Its so funny how much this kid has to say!
Other news... our next door neighbor is pregnant also... She's about 6 weeks ahead of me and they are having a boy! Its so exciting to know that we will have little ones so close in age. We definitely need to make a better effort at hanging out with them!
