|35 weeks. Yes I look great in sweat pants:) Travis and I just cleaned the whole hosue.|
35 weeks pregnant. I am getting so excited to meet this little girl or boy. Travis and I have been getting things ready around the house. Organizing the baby room, washing baby clothes, and putting stuff in our room so we are all ready for when the little one decides it wants to arrive.
As for this week, our lives have been very eventful. Last week we traveled down to Milwaukee for Travis’s brothers wedding. It was great to see all his family and celebrate his brothers wedding. His aunt is an ob nurse and she predicted the baby would come early. Whooo hooo. Sounds good to me. In addition, to traveling to Milwaukee I got the 24 hour flu while in Milwaukee. IT WAS TERRIBLE. I am pretty sure I caught it from my kids at school. On Friday on our drive down to Milwaukee I did not feel the best, but thought it could be from being pregnant and riding in the car for five some hours. But I was wrong because as the day went on I got more and more sick. By the time we were at the rehearsal dinner I felt terrible. After that things went down hill and let’s say it was a bad night with no sleep. I was very thankful that the next day I woke up after two hours of sleep and did not feel sick. I was pretty tired for the wedding, but no puking. So that’s good. I also didn’t get to bust a move since my doctor told me to take it easy. I will post pictures from the wedding soon.
I have also been crazy busy at school trying to get things organized and grades ready for report cards. Today one of my students asked me if being a teacher is hard. I said it is just A LOT of work. My job is never done and there are always more things you can do to make your lessons better or your classroom better for your kiddos. It will be interesting to leave my class for my maternity leave. It will be weird to turn over my classroom.
