I had a wonderful birthday. I told Zach the only thing I wanted was for him to make me a birthday cake. So he did. It ended up being am icecream cake…chocolate cake and icecream with a homemade vanilla icecream base. So scrumptious. I have a picture, but no time to post it right now.
Went to a prenatal visit today…I got there right on time, but I guess things were running behind. So I ended up waiting a long time, and I got sleepy. Then, the midwife came in to talk for a while and she said she noticed my weight jumped up…she is right, it did, and I was not happy about it. The scales showed 8 more pounds from 5 weeks ago. And my blood sugar was high. I had to tell her I had Cap’n Crunch for breakfast, and she didn’t seemed concerned after that. But, the weight thing made me upset. I’ve been running. And I keep thinking to myself, I don’t look THAT much different than before. But somehow, my pants keep getting tighter. I know I’m not supposed to be that concerned about weight, but I have been my whole life. And then for someone to point out to me that my weight jumped up, that made me sad. No one has ever had to tell me to exercise more. I haven’t been able to run (or walk easily) because my knee hurts. And if I want to swim, I have to get out there really early before all the kiddos come out to play. It just makes it harder. I also lied when I told them I was taking my prenatal vitamins. I’m not. Then on my way out, I realized that I would have to pay something I thought my insurance would cover. So I burst into tears on my way out and cried in the bathroom before driving home…then I cried all the way home and then when I called Zach, too.
Then I had to arrange for apartment living today before I leave for work…which I’m about ready to do. Had to fill out forms, pay money, and fax. But, I think we found a suitable place, at least for the short amount of time we are going to live there…6 months. Hopefully we’ll find a house soon. We will be living in a smaller apartment than we’re in now, so we’ll have to sell some things, throw out some things, etc. I’m looking forward to/not looking forward to doing that.
That’s it for now…there’s so much more to tell…I’m sorry I haven’t returned people’s phone calls when they’ve called (Jill, Megan, Melinda) It’s just been too much for me lately. I’ll pull it together soon, I know it!
