I spent most of my day over at the mall looking around at baby stuff and did some actual shopping....
When I was over at The Bay, I saw a sign about if you sign up for a registry, you would receive a $25 gift card....
So I went through the whole process and she then informs me that the gift card is only for weddings!
I was sooooo mad........
I needed the registry anyway but I really didn't have time to scan all of the items I want on this particular day........
Alex is going to be home from school soon and then we have to build a filtration model for his class tomorrow.....It was due today but he refused to get it done last night.............
OMG I would be so mad about the registry! What a waste!
Hmmm..Lets see...Today I stayed home from work like I did yesterday because I've been up all night in pain from sciatica and stomac pains...I think from ligaments stretching. And plus with the baby getting bigger, no matter how I sleep, I'm uncomfortable (if I lay on my back, beaner pushes on my bladder and I'm almost peeing the bed, and if on my sides, the weight of the baby makes my belly push downward and doesn't feel very good).
So I've been taking it easy these past two days but I will be going to work tomorrow. My bf has been home with me as it's his day off, so we've gotten a chance to just hang and cuddle a bit.
Apart from being groggy and tired as all h*ll, my day is going quite good.
I'm 19 weeks as of today. But I'm going for my first ultrasound on the 18th of Jan. So they'll be able to give a confirmation of that. How far along are you? The ligament stretching is totally not fun! Did you have any morning sickness at all? Is your belly starting to show? hehe sorry for all the questions.
I am not far behind you... I am just about 18 weeks!
Didn't ever throw up but had "all day" sickness for the first 3 months, just felt tired and nauseated all day............
Well, the belly is not "really"showing yet......... I had a couple of pounds left over from my son, lol, bad excuse though cause he is 8!
I have only gained 3 pounds over all though cause I had lost a bunch to begin with!
I am kinda showing but only Ryan and myself notice it...... But not too many people know yet that we are expecting...
Well I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who lost weight in the begining! I lost just about 10 lbs in the first three months, then stayed there for a while. I just weighed myself two days ago and finally gained almost 3 pounds back (at least according to the scale), so I felt pretty good about that. So now I'm only 7 pounds less than what I was to start with.
I had terrible "all day" sickness. Couldn't keep a thing down. Hence all the weight loss. But after my 12th week, all of a sudden I woke up one day and felt great, had an appetite again and haven't thrown up since. Weird how these things work.
This is baby #1 for me. You mentionned your boy is 8? What month was he born in?
