27 Weeks

Just wanted to update on some stuff, so this post will be all over the place.

So, last week I thought I was having preterm labor, but it turns out that I was just on the toilet for so long that my digestive system started cramping.  I'm figuring (from the soreness) that I did the equivalent of 13 million situps, so you know, it's all good.

My mom and BFF have been helping me declutter my house most weekends and we've really been accomplishing a lot.  No before pictures, just imagine Theo Huxtable's room when he was in junior high.  I now have access to a sliding glass door that had been blocked with stuff, and we can now see carpet in the bedrooms!  We threw out a ton of stuff and were able to donate many huge bags of clothing and household items to Goodwill.  Mom and BFF each deserve gold stars!

Work has been really stressful lately, as I try to complete Mission Impossible.  Today I just completely broke down in tears and it was hard for me to calm down.  I think that I have been trying to do too much all by myself, and I really needed to ask for help earlier.  I now have some more help on the project and my boss was able to relax on the deadline when he realized just how much work this mission comprises.

I gained 6 pounds from Month 5 to Month 6, and my doc really wanted me to make sure that I not gain as much in subsequent months.  I've been trying to be really conscious of my food choices and increase my activity level, and I think I've only gained 2 lbs this month!  Hopefully, I can keep making good choices the rest of the pregnancy.

Tomorrow is my sister's birthday!  Yay her!  We got her an awesome gift, if I do say so myself; I just hope that it arrives on time.  :)

So glad to read a post from you! I was just visiting your blog earlier this afternoon and wondering how you are doing.

Congratulations on the decluttering. That's such a good feeling, isn't it?

Glad to hear you are healthy and still pregnant. ;-)

Dang, I'm happy to hear from you. Glad you got help at work, glad you aren't going to end up on an episode of Clean House or Hoarders :-), especially glad you are still healthy (save for the incessant pooping) and growing that little human being.

Glad it wasn't pre-term.

HOORAY for Mom and BFF! A clean house is awesomeness!

Getting rid of stuff to uncover a clean(er) house always feels fantastic.

So glad you didn't go into labor, yet. :)
