Unexpected Long Weekend

Yesterday I visited the doctor. I've gained 5 pounds in the last two weeks. The baby is doing well. She is VERY active and is currently oblique. (I guess it wasn't my imagination that my belly seems a bit lopsided and she seems to be hitting my ribs a bit!)

I've had a sore throat this week and the doctor decided it looked red enough to warrant antibiotics and a day of rest away from children and their germs. Usually I would be rather tense about having to plan for a day off, but honestly it couldn't come at a better time! The students have a half day today and I think my student teacher is ready for the challenge. Better yet? My mom flies in at noon today. I haven't seen her since Thanksgiving and I know she is looking forward to seeing the baby preparations...and my lopsided belly!

(Mom asked if the doctor could say I needed Monday off too...)

So I have slept in and am resting up. The Irishman has been really good at pampering me.

Happy weekend!

So sorry Shannon and I couldn't make the shower, we were so looking forward to it! Darn germs! We hope to meet up with you in a couple weeks though to say hello and give you your gifts!
How was the shower? Fun and special with your mom there I bet.
