So, when one goes on vacation for 12 days at the end on one month and the beginning of the next and returns with a sick kid it really messes up ones sense of place of time. I have essentially “lost” these past 3? no, now it is 4! weeks. Sigh. I have a whole list of Fall/October activities- pumpkin patch, apple picking, bonfires, camping, hiking, and such which I believe we have sadly run out of time for.
It is okay though because vacation was wonderful! We had a great (albeit HOT!) time with BFF and her family, my parents, and my brother. I had no idea Florida would be 89-95 degrees still with humidity in the 90%+ range still. We survived though–lots of pool time helped.
The afternoon we got home AU spiked a fever. Ear infections and upper respiratory infection, an antibiotic, ER trip, and nebulizer treatments later she is finally feeling better. I think I have a small pinch of her misery now though. Gross.
Mr. T and I start childbirth classes tonight. Lucky us. I’m *so* not into it due to the above gross/sick feeling. But we will go and be hypnotized and meet other expectant couples and it will be okay–provided I don’t lose my dinner during class. We were already through the homestudy curriculum by this point in my pregnancy with AU so I’m feeeling a little guilty that I’m not excited about tonight but I’m pretty sure being sick is playing into that pretty heavily. Hopefully, this time next week will be a “looking forward to” class and not a “having to” one.
This little girl I’m pregnant with is a mover and a shaker! AU was really calm and serene (she still is in many ways) and I could go 12 hours or so between movements/kicks. This kiddo though? Pretty much every hour she thumps and thuds and lets me know she is there. It is pretty awesome!
