So tonight has been the first night that I have felt good enough to sit and write a post. Every night this week I have suffered from a bad to severe headache. Monday night it was really more like a migraine. I don't know what the deal is or why I'm getting them everyday besides to just blame the pregnancy. My sister suffered with headaches and migraines during her pregnancies also...I guess it's a genetic thing! ugh!! Anyways, tonight I have a very mild headache so I decided to get on here and write a little since I had my 3rd visit to the doctor on Tuesday.
I had to pee in a cup again (I guess this is something I will be doing every time I go in) and the nurse came in and asked a few questions like how have I been feeling, am I taking my prenatals and all that good stuff. Then she said the doctor would be in to see me in a couple of minutes. HA!! I'm pretty sure it was close to a half hour later before she made it to our room. So I read my book and Waylon played Sudoku while we waited for the Doctor to finally come see us. I don't understand why they schedule so many people to come in at once! It doesn't make sense! Anyways, she checked the heartbeat again and it was very strong and Waylon got to hear it for the first time. It was amazing to hear that little "whoosh, whoosh" sound again. It's such a great reminder for me that a little baby actually is in my belly growing even though I can't feel it yet. I can't wait to feel it move, it's driving me crazy! I also found out that at my next appointment, February 3rd, they are going to do another ultra sound to see what the baby is! I was so excited!! She had told me before that she would check around 17 weeks, which is what I'll be at the point but hearing her say it was at my next appointment really got me excited! Now I just hope the baby cooperates and doesn't move around too much to where we can't tell. I'm trying to not get my hopes up too much so I won't be extremely disappointed if that happens but it's really hard not to. She did clear me to go on my trip to Florida next weekend with the cheerleaders, which relieved me, but she did say that I couldn't ride any of the "fun" rides, which was disappointing. I knew that was coming but I had hoped that maybe she would say I was early enough to where I might be able to ride some milder rides. Oh well, it's for a good cause and I'll still enjoy watching Waylon enjoy himself.
I'm have a serious case of covetousness lately with two of my friends having their babies! I get so excited hearing about it and imagining how awesome it is for them to get to meet the little person growning inside them and then I get extremely envious and start wishing it was me! It feels so far away when you're seeing other people have their babies but they went through everything I'm going through so I do not begrudge them this in the least...but I still jealous!!
On a non-pregnancy topic (I know, MIRACLE!), I've had a rather frustrating past couple of days at school with my students. We had a review presentation project that they started and presented this week and the outcomes were, for the most part, very disappointing. I feel like I went over and over and clarified as much as I could to them as to what exactly they were to do but only a fourth of the groups who presented actually did what the project called for. This project counts for two grades and some of these students are right on the line of passing or failing. Next week is the last week of the first semester and will determine if these students will have to retake the 1st semester of Spanish 1 or not....I really want them all to pass!!! I don't enjoy having students two years in a row, it feels like such an unneccessary waste of their time and mine! ugh! anyways, I won't vent anymore about that, it was just frustrating to see the product of several days of class work time that was obviously wasted. bleh. Tomorrow is "fiesta day" where all the classes will have their semester party. They sign up and bring food and we just hang out, eat, play games, watch movies and basically have fun. I'll be having this every class period tomorrow. I think I'll probably be sick by the end of the day with all the food I'll be snacking on all day. I'm not even taking a lunch! I'm really thankful for tomorrow. I'm also looking forward to next Friday as we leave for Florida! I have been there in forever. I found out today at cheer practice that I will be announcing some of our squads and saying some stuff about them and what they have achieved into a microphone in front of hundreds, maybe thousands of people at Disney World! How nerv-wracking is that??!?!? I started stuttering when she told me that. seriously. I wasn't expecting to have to do anything like that. I really thought my only job on this trip was to chaperone the girls and have fun. They will be giving me a script and you better believe that I will be reading that thing over and over again from the time I get it until I have to read it in front of people. There's no way I'm messing up!!
Well, I'm going to stop here. I had several good thoughts today as to what to write in my blog and now I can't remember any of them! It's frustrating because I want my blog to be all interesting and funny but when I sit down to write sometimes I can't think of anything to write about besides pregnancy! erg! Well I'm sorry if it bores you sometimes and I'm very thankful to all of you who faithfully read it (mom...oh and Melissa, my sister and Lydia my cousin...lol).
Have a great weekend everyone and drive safe!
