How is everyone? Hope all is well.
I am alive and well but I will not lie this pregnancy stuff is hard. I have had a rough 11 weeks with the flat out exhaustion and I am beyond ready to get some energy back. Hopefully that will happen soon. Everyone says that the second trimester you get your energy back and again I am ready for that. With the exception of the exhaustion I have had a realitively mild pregnancy thus far. Well minus a scary day what I broke out in cold sweats and almost passed out. Scary. Mr. Big Truck and I were out running some errands and I needed to go to the bathroom. I excused myself and went and while I was in there I got really dizzy started sweating and almost passed out. Weird. I personally think it is because I am anemic. I do take an iron supplement to help with that. I was anemic before I was pregnant and I am sure that isn’t helping issues. We go to the doctor tonight and I plan to ask about that. Other that that one incident I have been good. Granted I have been in bed by 8pm the latest. Ya gotta do what at gotta do right? I have also started working out more often which is great in my book! Thyis week is a busy week doctor wise. We have our OB appointment tonight which we are excited about and then Friday morning we have our first trimester Down Syndrome NT scan.
Sunday we were over at a friends house for football and all of a sudden my phone rang. I looked at it and it was my dad calling. I was shocked. Actually my first thought was “oh boy what’s wrong?” Typically when dad is in FL I do not hear much from him unless I call him or something is wrong. I answered and I come to find out he was calling just to check in with us. Well played dad. Well played. He wanted to see how I was feeling and make sure everything was good. Needless to say I was happy about that. When he realized we were already 3 months pregnant he was shocked. His exact statement to me was “WHAT?!? You’re 3 months pregnant already?!? Where the hell did that time go?” Yep dad we ask ourselves that all the time. Last time we spoke I was under the impression that our due date was going to be May 18th and when I told dad that our due date has been moved to May 31st he sounded happy. Why? Because they will be back in Jersey by then for sure! All is good in his world.
This weekend was an extended on thanks to Veterans Day. We took advantage of a low key weekend and got most of our Christmas shopping done which is awesome. We also spent Monday at my moms house. Well actually Mr. Big Truck spent the day working there while I ran some errands then we had dinner with them and called it a day. It was nice to spend some time with them. It’s crazy. We only live 15 minutes from them but between our crazy schedule and theirs we haven’t seen much of them lately.
I also got some snuggle time with the girls on the couch which NEVER usually happens.
See typically the girls are not allowed on the couch and they know it. Saturday night we were relaxing at home and I thought that I would let them have some special snuggle time. Ya know give the some extra lovin’. Well they both curled up and made themselves comfortable and all 3 of us crashed out for a while. I told them not to get used to it because it was a one time deal.
All in all all is well in our world right now and we couldn’t be happier.
