Ramblings...

This is what I get for leaving a clean child unattended (for less than one minute) with bathtub crayons...


So thankfully since I blogged last my week has gotten better. I am still really sick, but at least I'm not breaking things and feeling sorry for myself all the time. I've been sick now for exactly a week... and for the past 2 days I thought I was getting better and then last night I got worse again. I'm not sure what's going on, but it's getting old. All along my PCP and the advice nurse at my ob's office told me not to take anything strong- so I've been on really wimpy drugs that do nothing. Well, I had my regular weekly appointment with my ob yesterday and he was horrified that I wasn't taking anything stronger... he said that since I only have 4 weeks to go and he knows I'm not going to go home and "OD" then I can take whatever I want (not including asprin and motrin). So I excitedly took Nyquil last night... and it helped for an hour.

Baby boy is doing well... moving around a ton still. I can tell he's a bit annoyed with his lack of space- he keeps doing these funny stretches where his legs go to one side of my tummy and his arms stretch out on the bottom side of my tummy... it makes my stomach look really interesting. There's been no more concern about him being too small... he will, more than likely, be a smaller baby, but that's ok. I'm 1cm dilated but the ob said he's still really high up and seems quite comfy where he is. Good- I'm not ready for him to get here yet! I want at least one more week- but I'd prefer he just wait until Grandma got here in March.

Deacon is also doing well. He's been so good about his job chart- it's really been great that he's taking responsibility for things around the house. This week he asked for his prize to be this amazing Hot Wheels toy he saw on t.v.- which is way too expensive for a weekly prize. So I told him that we would give him $5 for the toy and he could pay for the rest with the money he's saved. Well, he was so concerned he wouldn't have enough money that after I left his room (we were having this discussion while snuggling before bedtime) he got out of bed, took down his bank, dumped all his money out on the floor and tried counting it. I didn't hear him at first- but he started getting frustrated that he didn't know how much money he had- so I went in to see him red faced, exhausted and counting money. It melted my heart- I told him that he, of course, had plenty of money to buy the Hot Wheels toy- and now it's all he's talked about all week. He's so excited.

Oh, and the no eating out challenge is going really well. Damien has eaten out this week- but he didn't pay for it and it was a going away lunch for a co-worker. Deacon did throw a mini-temper tantrum last night because he wanted to go to McDonalds, but he got over it. Honestly it's not been too hard. I don't know if it's because I'm sick and not in the mood to eat anything or what... but it's honestly not been too bad.
