Week 22

Well, this week flew by! So much so, that there is not that much to report. I did want to say thank you to all of you who have emailed me your experiences with depression, and I am trying desperately to get write each of you back, so bear with me. It is very comforting knowing that I'm not alone, and I appreciate you sharing your stories with me. It means so much!

I have seemed to become quite hungry ALL the time lately! I will eat something and then half an hour later I'm famished. At this point I have gained 25 pounds, but I think at my next appointment it will be more like 30 with the way I'm eating! When I was pregnant with Daisy I made the decision not to exercise, and to just take it easy the whole pregnancy. After having two miscarriages I wasn't taking any chances with anything. This pregnancy I figured I would do the same, in terms of not exercising. Normally I am an avid exerciser, and I really miss it. Well, since we moved into our new place and have a pool, I have gotten in the habit of doing a few laps, and it is wonderful! I feel so relaxed when I'm done and it is probably the best exercise you can do when pregnant, as there is no impact involved. I think I will continue to swim every week for the remainder of this pregnancy because it makes me feel so good, and I think after going through a successful pregnancy last time, my worries have lessened.

Next week should be interesting, as I am giving my boss the news that I will not be coming back to work after Nicholas is born. I think she knows this is coming, but I'm still not looking forward to it. I am looking forward to having a new job, though. My medical transcription classes are going well, and I'm hoping to get hired from a company that allows me to work from home. If not, then I will look for work in a doctor's office or hospital until I can find something from home. I have come to the conclusion that I really don't mind working; it's just the job I have now is not want I want to be doing anymore, and I think if I get into a job that I really like, it will make it so much easier to go to work in the morning! (that's an understatement!).

See ya next week :)
