I feel like I need to go to sleep for the rest of the year. Who knew that being pregnant and working full time and being a full time wife and mother would be so tiring? Zoe is getting bigger and more precocious as the days stretch on. I never know what will come out of her mouth. She was introduced to the joys of play-doh last night. That was a lot of fun. That's what peeing in the potty gets her. Maybe it's working??
Nick is well...Nick. We hit a bumpy patch of just cohabitating and not really being a family. I didn't push it. He finally noticed I wasn't pushing it. Last night we talked and things seem to be looking up. I think it really is the rubber band thing. If I try to pull him closer, I just end up pushing him away but if I leave him alone, he wants to know why. I just let him come back to me. It was actually peaceful to get a little alone time for a while. I think we are back to being husband and wife instead of just Zoe's mommy and daddy. That's what we have to work on. The balance between both of those.
I have to go back to the doctor on the 18th and everything seems to be going fine. We have 74 days to go. Less than 3 months. Is it just me or is this pregnancy flying by? With Zoe I felt like she couldn't get here fast enough. With this one, I really am not doing that. My due date is the end of working outside the house for at least 6 months. I don't know if I can go back to that. I love working. I love having responsibilities and things that depend on me to happen. I love being able to hold conversations with actual adults. I am excited to see what this baby looks like though. Nick wants to do a 3D sonogram but I don't know if we'll do that or not.
We'll see how everything goes.
