Jess -- how cool to grow your own plants. My mom had no time to do any of that. She kept busy with work, church projects and us kids (she used to baby sit while I was super little, and started work when I went back to school). Perhaps you can take on that task after Baby is born and when you get back into your all your other fun projects.
I know that I'll probably want to get back into my cross stitching at some point. Buy the program and start working on making patterns to sell. Plus I was trying to work on making shirts... and I just haven't had time to work on designs. Truthfully... having a kid plus this long work day I have no clue when i'll get back into my crafts.

I junked it out for lunch ... and feeling kinda crappy. I went to CookOut got a BLT, onion rings and a shake.

I feel my little one is sitting side ways. I get twinges all across my front. Mainly in the middle or over on my right, but a few on my left.

I have a prenatal appointment next Wednesday, then my next one will be my gtt nastiness and prenatal.


OH I didn't know it was 6 months already Jess! wow ... We've come a long way haven't we!

StarGazer - you'll find the time, honestly, I spent a lot of time idle here at home and I occupy myself with my games and doing stuff with the kids. It's really only those first few months that are the hardest, especially when it's your first. I had just my one for so many years I had to relearn all that baby stuff again but it was a lot easier. I've never done cross stitching but I do like the different funny patterns I've seen. My oldest does online school, so he stays home with me during the day. And he helps quite a bit with the little ones if I really need it. Once dh gets closer to retirement I plan to go back to work and have dh home more with the kids and my oldest help more, which I'll pay him for, since it's only fair he gets compensated if he is okay with it. I think babies really do like lying sideways, or "transverse" while they can, since they have the room the stretch out. My dd still sleeps in the same position she used to be in all the time in pregnancy, it's funny.

Well with out the kid right now I'm getting up between 5:30-6:00 to get ready and leave to be here before 8. Then being here til 5, driving home for an hour (give or take traffic pit falls and issues) ... I get home between 6 and 7 (depending on if i stop or not, or well traffic)
When I get home I'm pooped and we eat dinner, maybe watch a show/movie then it's bed time around 9
Hubby has a "when there is work" kind of schedule. So sometimes he works long days some days he works short days (most often they are long cause they are paid the same for 12 as they would for 2).... And he gets more days off than I do. And if he tries to tell his boss that he only wants to work on certain days, I'm sure he'll get his more reliable schedule, or be working part time basically.

So i'm curious how having a baby will go with my schedule more than his ... This is why I wanted to plan half week at home thing after the "medical" leave (which as far as I know is only 6 weeks), so that I get to spend time with my kid. Cause right now I feel I'll never see them....
And getting back into the crafts ... will probably be while I'm stuck sitting at home for some reason or another.

dove - wooo another team pink!! Congrats

StarGazer - eh, it all works out when you get to that point, I think. Dh usually works pretty early and gets off in the early afternoon, but there are times he has worked in the middle of the night or super early in the morning depending on the job. I generally get up at 530 or 6 and my dd and oldest ds get up with me as they're morning people too.

I noticed baby curled up like a shrimp this afternoon, and where my uterus stops about an inch above my belly button. Can't believe I'm almost done with second tri, it's seriously flown by.

Congrats Dove!!!

Jess -- I figure things will settle themselves. It's the only thing "long term" i'm worried about. Even spoke to Hubby about it, and he tells me not to worry... (Says the man who get stick when he stresses ....*eyeroll* )

This weekend Baby decided to squirm and nudge/kick a ton.
Saturday I was exhausted by time the other girls came in. I was along from 9 til 2... starving and my back was killing me. Again my nerve was making it hard to walk.
So after helping customers until there was a pause enough to go to break ... omg ... I was about to start crawling around. So weird that the nerve hurts more when the foot is raised than actually putting weight on it, but my back hurts when i put pressure on my feet....
So I messaged my brother and told him I was in too much pain to make a trip to my parents house to hang around. (I didn't want to mention all my other issues/pains that he didn't need to know about).
Anyways when I got home I laid on the couch trying to get feeling back in my feet and back. That's when Wiggles decided that the top of the uterus was a playground! After spending the whole day nestled down low, I got to feel some strong nudges/kicks all around my belly from top to bottom.
I wanted Hubby to feel, but of course he's a jerk and comes over and annoys the kid who decided to slink down to the bottom again. I tried to nudge Baby back up, but nope ... it wasn't having it.
But for while that was going on my face was covered in happy tears. It's amazing what is happening, and after waiting so long .... it's a freakin miracle!

Sunday was decent. Neighbors dog woke me up which wasn't terrible as I was already in and out of sleep. Ended up meeting IL's for breakfast
Then mowed half the back yard as Hubby worked on his shed -- he ended up finishing it for me (He was already feeling sick from working on the grass in his shed and could tell I was getting too hot and tired)
Managed to wash half the dishes ... standing too long now bothers my back and my nerve so, I had to take a break and gave up when it was time for dinner.

Overall... My highlights were enjoying feeling baby during my resting time on the couch

OH .... and I'm 22 weeks today!!! O_O How time is flying!

StarGazer - happy 22 weeks! Sounds like you had a busy weekend.. again lol. I don't think dh has felt mine move yet, they always stop right when he is there, listening to him and such.

Hope everyone had a decent weekend. I didn't get done what I wanted to, except my Costco trip. I did manage to clean my kitchen, vacuum, and organize some small things around the house yesterday but that was about it. Dh wasn't doing so well so things were pretty tame most of the weekend. Baby is moving around a lot. I'm starting to feel winded doing basic things, but luckily my knee isn't sore today so I'll be back to my workouts.
