We got the keys to our new place yesterday and have been moving in bit by bit since yesterday afternoon. I despise packing, and to add insult to injury I am SO TIRED all the time. I'm getting the feeling that the third trimester is a flashback to the first, but with more aches and pains and more trips to the potty. I wake up every three or four hours now and usually have trouble getting back to sleep because my left hip and shoulder are sore from attempting to sleep on my left side like a good pregnant lady ought to sleep. The heartburn and indigestion has been tons of fun too. I still hate my midwife and my latest fantasy involves kicking her during the Group B strep test. My last appointment was with a different provider and she was AWESOME. I wish I could switch to her, or to Dr. Ellemberger, but since the are both OBs and I am not high risk it isn't a choice. Anyway, it doesn't matter in the end since I will be stuck with whomever is on call when I give birth for the delivery. I still want a homebirth, but I want to go home more so that is where our money went.
On the upside, I have two months left and I am praying this kid decides to take after my family and come out early. Our new place is totally awesome and I can't wait to get unpacked and settled in there. I am going to California on the 18th and Houston on the 22, so the rest of the month should fly. When I get back I will be all cheesy and set up a baby room and have my cousin as a house guest. We are going to be super cheesy and work on her engagement announcements and hopefully my wedding scrapbook, which means I will have to stop sulking about the bad photography and choose some pictures to get edited and printed. Yes, I am aware I have been married for a year and still haven't printed out a single photo. My family never lets me forget. Also, one of Greg's guys is staying up here for the holidays and is going to pet sit. That will save us close to $500!
Time for more packing. I want the entire kitchen boxed up and ready to go before I go to bed!
