Yep, we are just moving along, getting closer each week to meeting our sweet girl. This hasn't been a dull week, a lot of new and interesting things have happened. Pregnancy is full of surprises!
We spent last weekend in "the country" (Corner, my hometown) with my family and had an absolutely perfect time. We all hated to leave! We celebrated my daddy's birthday and enjoyed a 4 day weekend before heading back to Auburn. Monday night, back in Auburn, Lance, myself, and the puppies all just sat around and pouted because we missed our family and the country so much! We just love that place :)
Then, Wednesday morning Lance flew out to South Carolina, so it was just me, Emy, and the puppies. I was so tired Wednesday and Thursday night that I would come home from work, have dinner, and go to bed. I assumed it was from the weekend, it's always too exciting to get a lot of sleep when we are back home. I just took advantage of the empty house and slept...a lot! Friday morning I had a doctor's appointment and this little girl put on a little show! We were trying to get her heartbeat and she was moving so much the nurse could never find it long enough to get a heart rate. You would hear a couple of little thumps then a splash noise which was Emersyn kicking and moving. She did this for the longest, then finally cooperated for about 5 seconds so we could get her heart rate, then she went to moving again :) The doctor was very impressed with all of her activity! Baby girl is absolutely perfect. I had been a little concerned because I will feel Emersyn all day for one day, she will be moving all over the place, then I won't feel her for 3 or 4 days. The doctor explained this was completely fine, she just likes to sit low and on my bladder more than she likes to be closer to the surface (imagine a sweet girl sitting on your bladder all day, it makes life very interesting!) That made me feel a lot better, however, I explained to Emy I would much rather feel her little kicks than run to the bathroom a million times each day :) She's stubborn, I have NO idea where that comes from! I have another appointment in 4 weeks along with a sugar test, then the appointments move to every 2 weeks.... AHH where has the time gone?!? Also, we scheduled sweet girl's 4D ultrasound in a little less than 4 weeks, on August 4th :) We are SO excited! I can't wait to see the little angel :)
This week has brought a big new surprise.... after the complete lack of energy through Thursday evening, let me give you a run down of my Friday. I woke up at 4, went to the gym and practiced BodyAttack and did some weights, came home and got ready for work, worked from 8-5, came home from work and made dinner (a new recipe that was absolutely disgusting), I cleaned up from dinner and all of a sudden out of nowhere I had this BURST of energy and this overwhelming desire to CLEAN, and that's exactly what I did- for the next 2 1/2 hours. I vacuumed, I steamed the floors, I dusted every table and piece of furniture in this house, and started cleaning out cabinets. I straightened up and threw away and just kept going! Lance and the puppies stayed in the middle bedroom and every time I walked by begged to be able to go to bed. I just could not quit cleaning, we filled up and took out 3 bags of garbage. Finally, every square inch of my back was hurting so bad, that I had to stop. It was great! This morning after Attack, Pump, and RPM I came home and kept cleaning! I think everything I can possibly clean or clean out at this point has been done. As soon as I find a new cleaning project, I will be on that asap. Early nesting? Possibly. I really don't care, I love this energy. I feel like I have accomplished so much :)
We are having a relaxed weekend, July is always a busy month with birthdays, and to add to it this year Lance is traveling 3/4 of the month so we are taking these couple of days easy (well, he is, I've spent it cleaning so far!). We are enjoying the peacefulness now, but can't wait to have Baby Emy here with us :)
