How is it Friday already?
I am so ready for Fall weather. It has been the 4 H's around here lately: Hot, Humid, Hazy and Horrible.
If I had to decide to live in a cold or hot climate for the rest of my life, I would choose cold. I do not like sweating unless I am working out, I do not like breathing air as thick as chowder, and I do not like dressing in one thin layer that does not conceal my rolls. I love having lots of comfy blankets on my bed, something delicious baking in the oven, layers upon layers of cozy clothes to hide under, and a fire roaring in the fireplace.
This is what happens when you confine yourself to bedrest during the first trimester:
Um, yeah I don't think juicing and a new intense workout routine is what I should be thinking about in my current condition. But that's how enticing infomercials are when infomercials are alllllllll that's on our basic cable plan during the day.
My sister texted me this picture of my sons and her son playing chess after school:
I just love everything about it. Brothers helping one another (that's Andrew giving Eamon pointers on the left), cousins playing together (cousin Tommy is on the right), and all of these boys choosing to play chess rather than the other games or activities offered after school. Boys are the best. Maggie was probably playing some girly game filled with drama over who gets to be the princess this time based on whose hair looks cuter.
Seguing into pregnancy things...
Wanna hear something horrible that a woman said to me yesterday?
She looked at my (admittedly big) baby bump, and said "Twins or Triplets?"
You know what I almost said back to her (but didn't)?:
"I'm pregnant, but what's your excuse?"
I heard the baby's heartbeat yesterday!! My midwife gelled up the doppler and picked a spot and BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM picked up this sweet baby's heartbeat right away. About 160 beats a minute, perfection.
Also, all my labwork came back great! She even said my iron levels were so high I could take my supplements every other day. This is huge news as I'm practically always anemic. She asked me which iron supplement I was taking because it worked so well she wanted to let her other patients know about it.
As much as I don't enjoy being pregnant and as painful as labor is and as annoying as breastfeeding and pumping are for me, I really am so lucky that I am such a fertile mertile.
Somebody else is also a fertile mertile :)
The Patriots game was so bad last night. They won, but oh my goodness, how bad can a team look??
This is what happens when you get rid of my favorite Wes Welker who apparently is the only receiver that can catch a ball thrown perfectly at him by the amazing Tom Brady.
Tom was so frustrated last night that he was a little bit scary...
...because this is how his teammates were "catching" the ball...
|I love the guy with dreads in the back ground, watching Tom, like "Oh no you didn't!"|
Even scary angry, he still looks cute.
He said after the game yesterday "I think I have to do a better job with my body language". Um, yeah. I'm just glad the game was on too late for my kids to see it.
Have a wonderful football-watching weekend everybody!
