I’ll do a weekly bump update so I can look back and see how things progress and what was happening at various points along the way.
I am so excited to reach the 6th month mark. It’s really past 1/2 way now. Not just in weeks, but in months to- only 4 more to go!
And now I can say that I went camping 6 months pregnant. We went up to a camp ground yesterday and did an overnight. It was so much fun and I’m really glad we did it. I’m so tired from it now but we did a lot. Actually we are all tired, the dog is wiped out. ha!
On Friday my Dr’s appointment showed that I was 6lbs up from my pre-pregnancy weight. Which kinda made me freak out since I told her how I weighed myself multiple times on Sunday morning & that was 4 lbs less. No, she didn’t think I gained 4lbs in 5 days but this time (like my other DR’s appointments) I was wearing clothes and had eaten 1-2 meals before going to the DR. Basically nothing to worry since my last few appointments show I’m right on track. Whew!
In related fear inducing news, I’ve started to call up day cares to learn about their programs and get some fee info. Well, holy hell, I knew day care would be $$$ but I called one by my office and had a good laugh afterwards. The lovely woman on the phone told me their part time (3 day) infant program cost $1893 and the full time (5 day) would be $2365 a month. Yep, either case way more than our mortgage. Fun. So now we’re really looking into our options out of the city as I called a new day care in town which had a full time infant program for $1040. Still hurts but hurts A LOT less than the other one. OUCH!
I was at a meeting on Friday and I started to notice the client stare at me. I think we was trying to figure out if I was just getting fatter over the last few weeks or if I am pregnant since I try to wear loose dresses or flowy tops to meetings and it’s not like I wear a sign. I wanted to say ‘yep, I am’ but I figured I wouldn’t interrupt the meeting. Wondering how long it will take him to figure it out. ha!
