A peek at the past week (how I’ve been): Very emotional. Yay for pregnancy hormones :P Poor Pat has had his hands full with me, for sure. There has also been some issues with the estate and at work, which is adding to my stress. Also, I started having a really hard time sleeping, due to discomfort. Luckily, I managed to find a cheap used one of these:
As ridiculous as it looks, it is making a huge difference. Long live the Snoogle!
How far along am I? 19 weeks, 1 day.
I am thinking… About the midwife appointment and ultrasound that I have this week. Tomorrow I get to hear Baby’s heart beat (which is always a huge comfort) and then on Friday we find out if we’re having a boy or a girl!
I am thankful for… my snoogle, my friends and the patience my husband has for me and my moods swings.
From the kitchen… I’ve been trying! This week featured Martha’s Brussels Sprouts and Pasta dish.
I am wearing…Maternity clothes from the lovely S! She gifted me with all of her office stuff from her last two pregnancies. They are LOVELY and fit me perfectly.
I am creating… I started on my very own yarn wreath for the holidays. I’ve only finished the wrapping so far, but I love how it looks. It reminds me of birch bark.
Unfortunately, while I wait to add the adornments, Byron has decided to make the wreath into some sort of warm kitty nest.
Somehow I think this is punishment because I won’t let him sleep on my belly any more.
I am going… to keep pondering what to do about a potential web space for me and the family stuff. Also, we have a “fake thanksgiving” dinner to attend this weekend, which will be fun.
I am reading… A few different things, actually. Dreams Underfoot, by Charles de Lint. One of my all time favourite books. I reread it at least once a year. I’m also reading a biography on Gypsy Rose Lee, the Burlesque/Vaudeville performer called American Rose. I picked it up for my trip to New Orleans, but never got a chance to read it while I was there. I’m also reading Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris, which is the most recent True Blood/Sookie Stackhouse book.
I am hoping… that baby is doing ok. I’m always nervous before I hear the heartbeat or have an ultrasound. I also hope baby shows us the goods!
I am hearing… Lots of The Civil Wars lately. <3
Around the house…Cleaning and plotting. That’s about it.
One of my favorite things…Supernatural. I’ve gotten back into it and am in the process of finishing season 6.
