Daisy is showing signs of neglect this week. She was already re-decorating our yard by pulling up weed control fabric that we have under our rocks, broken an orange tree, and helped the Dashunds that live in back of us dig their way into our yard. Her latest distructive behavior is to actually start eating away at the fence. Poor puppy is missing the days when mommy could take her for a nice long run. Now, daddy is still fully capable, but keeps bitching and moaning about how he has too much to do. I've been off for a whole week now (so thankful for winter break) so I'm hoping she'll be a little more content.
I am feeling the effects of the third trimester big time. I AM SO FREAKING TIRED! After making tamales with my family on Saturday, I was completely and totally wiped out. I spent most of Sunday and Monday sleeping. My to do list is almost as long as it was when I started the week, and I still haven't finished the thank you cards for my baby shower which was on the fourth. I know, I'm terrible.
Here's a few fun and exciting things that happened this week:
- Strep B culture came back negative! Woohooh! This is most fantastic because I'm hoping to get away with only an IV plug during delivery. I'll fill you in more on the birth plan later (if I make it that far), but the tentative plan is to go au natural. The rest of the plan is mainly to wait an see how it goes.
- I got a SUPER hot fireman to put in Bug's carseat. We found out in our newborn prep class that 90% of carseat are installed incorrectly, and that most firestations have someone who is trained to put them in and they do it for free. SWEET! I'm all for safety and pretty firemen. It is, however, very strange to have a baby seat in my car.
- Bug is FULL TERM! We made it! Though its still 3 weeks until our official due date, she can now come any time.
