~ Things Are Going Good!

Hello all! Hope everything is going well with all of you. Things are going good here. I have felt great over the past week and have had lots of energy. It's nice to be able to have my energy back. I am actually cooking and cleaning again - something I have neglected over the past month or so. I am sure my family appreciates me being more energetic than I have been.

I am so ready for spring! I am so sick and tired of the snow and cold weather I have been dealing with for months now. I think this is by far one of the worst winters I have ever experienced. I do not like getting up in the morning and have to drive one hour to and from work in this weather. Those days - I just want to get back into bed and go to sleep. The cold and snowy weather makes for dangerous driving conditions and I hate dealing with it on a daily basis. I am just so ready for some warmer weather and a little sunshine!

Work has been good. It just seems like I have been missing so much time due to doctor appointments. I am getting done what I need to but sometimes I just feel like there is not enough time in the work day to get everything accomplished. I am however, looking forward to maternity leave. That will be nice especially since I will have maternity leave during the summer. I love my job; it's just sometimes I wish I had a job that was closer to home. I am sure when I get further in my pregnancy, my doctor is not going to like me being on the road driving so much. I just hope he doesn't put me on bed rest. If he does, then I will deal with it, but I am the type of person who can't sit around and do nothing. I think I would go stir crazy! Oh well, if that does happen, I will take it one day at a time because it is for the well being of my babies and me.

I am starting to accumulate some baby items. So far I have one crib, one bassinet and some baby clothes. I still have to get so much more but at least I have the time to do so. It's just nice to have friends who no longer need their baby items so I don't have to go out and purchase two of everything! I am just looking forward to finding out the gender so I can start buying baby stuff. I have tried to hold off on doing so because I don't want to buy pink things if they both are boys or buy blue things if they both are girls. It would be nice to have one of each but I really don't care. Like I said before I just want healthy babies!

My belly seems to be getting bigger each morning I wake up. Last week I could wear a pair of dress pants and when I tried them on this week they seemed to be a little snug! I need to go out and get a few pairs of maternity pants - I have just been holding off until I have too!

Well that is about all for this week. I am still healthy and happy so that is what matters most.

Take care,
~ Carrie
