Only 95 days to go!

Wow! I can't believe it! Our third trimester starts on Thursday...and on top of that, we're in double digits for days left in the pregnancy!

It's been an amazing journey so far. We had some interesting issues at the start of the pregnancy when a hurricane rolled through and we didn't get test results back. (Speaking of which, I still haven't gotten those BETA numbers! *shrugs*) In fact, they ordered the wrong test, then the right one, and I never got the results.

Then I had horrible morning sickness, to the point where I had issues getting out of bed without feeling sick. Thank goodness for Zofran! I don't know what I would have done without it. (Actually I do...I would have gotten very, very sick!)

Then I injured my shoulder on the minivan. I still can't believe I tried to stop the van door from opening. I learned a very painful lesson that day.

But beyond those few things, this pregnancy has been good.

I sent my IPs an invitation the other day for a 4D ultrasound. I'm so excited! I got them a big package at the ultrasound place that gives them a DVD and a package of pictures of the baby. I'll be about 31 weeks when we have the ultrasound done, so they'll get some really good pictures of the baby. It'll also give them a really good idea of what the baby will look like. I can't wait to see the look on G's face when she sees her son!

I got some really cute maternity clothes the other day. I bought some clothes off of Rockstar Moms. I have a Rolling Stones tube top, and an AC/DC halter now. I also have a tube dress. Hubby bought me two multi-way dresses, one in red and one in black.

On Thursday I went and got a massage. It was great! I've never felt so relaxed! I'm planning on going back in about three or four weeks for another one. I'm going to have a mani/pedi day in the next week or two. It's been really nice to be able to pamper myself lately...especially considering I have a three page paper due on Wednesday and a 7-10 page research paper due in a few weeks. I have a test in Math on the 25th, the same day as my youngest daughter's surgery.

Speaking of youngest daughter is having surgery on Wednesday February 25th. Nothing too major. She's having tubes put in her ears, and having her tonsils and adenoids removed. I think we're more nervous then she is. She's thrilled about having ice cream for almost a whole week afterward.

So that's about it. Hopefully I'll have more to report in a couple of weeks!
