First, I want to thank everyone who commented or sent me a message on Facebook in response to my last post. I am very gracious for all of the sweet words and for making me feel NORMAL. I love blogging and I love how the people who blog can support one another when so desperately needed.
Of course Jer knows how I have been feeling, so we made a point to have a date night this past Saturday, just the two of us. We picked a quiet restaurant and I must say, it was exactly what we both needed. On the drive home, I felt peaceful and calm, which I haven't felt in a while. We both agreed that for our sake, we have to set time aside at least a few times a month to go on a real date, just us. We spend a lot of time together alone, but most of it is done with our attention on other things. I honestly didn't realize until this weekend how important uninterrupted one-on-one time with your spouse is.
After dinner, we took a 38 week picture. I haven't done one in a few weeks because I haven't felt 'cute' and have been wearing the same comfy clothes all the time. Here is my huge belly:
Our next appointment isn't until Friday, so hopefully we will see some progress made by then. I really don't want to induce, because my sister had an induction and had to have a c-section. I am all for getting the baby out safely and by whatever means necessary, but I want to make sure he (and my body) are 100% ready. I have been sleeping a little better these days, but one thing that hasn't gotten better is the itching. I am getting more and more stretch marks, so I know he is still gaining weight and growing.
I felt amazing yesterday, I think it was in part due to the weather we have been having! I LOVE this weather. I ran errands, picked up some fall decor and then Jer and I went over to my parent's for some yummy chili and pumpkin pie. Perfect way to spend a Fall(ish) day. Can you really call it Fall when the high is in the 80's? Who cares, I love Texas and it's whacked out seasons.
Should I feel guilty for 'making' Lola stay outside even when she is howling to get inside? It's so nice, I want her to enjoy it! All she wants to do is stay inside and nap. Lazy girl.
Well I hope everyone's enjoying nice weather somewhere and having a great Tuesday! Who is excited for 'Glee' tonight? It's Britney, bitch.
