Three Months Today!

I also wanted to mention that we're due THREE MONTHS from today!! There are still so many things to do to get ready, but I don't feel overwhelmed yet. Slow and steady. We started registering and reading books on childcare, so we're on the right track. We've also signed up to take a few different classes at Mayo in Rochester. We're both looking forward to those!

Pregnancy Brain

I had my first completely forgetful moment this morning. I went to the copy room at school to run some copies for class and I couldn’t for the life of me remember my copy code. I stood there looking at the machine and was completely blank. I use the number nearly every day! When the copy room woman asked if she could help me, I just looked at her and said, “I can’t remember what my code is.” A social studies teacher at another machine said I could use his and tried putting it into my machine, but I had already tried too many incorrect ones which locked it. They had to reset the whole copier before the social studies teacher re-entered his code for me. Luckily, another teacher on my team walked in so I joked with her that it was “pregnancy brain.” We all then joked about what pregnancy does to a woman. Like last week when I blamed my tiredness on the baby and my 10th graders debated whether or not I could use that excuse since the baby's not born yet. Funny moments.

25 Weeks & Healthy!

We had our monthly doctor visit on Tuesday this week, one day before hitting 25 weeks. Everything looks great! We listened to the heartbeat, which was strong and steady. Measurements are right where they should be. The doctor was happy with the progress, so we're happy too!

Pete finished his pediatrics rotation last week. He's so great with little kids. Actually, a few weeks ago we were visiting our new little Goddaughter in Rochester. I got ready to hand her over to Pete but was very cautious, as many guys I've seen hold babies are a bit fumbly and unsure. Apparently, I had momentarily forgotten how many babies Pete holds in a day. He has so much more confidence with little ones than I do! He's going to be such a great dad. As a parting gift from the docs on the peds team, he was given a little reflex checking thing (I know there's a technical name for it, but I can't remember what it is) in the shape of a giraffe! He said it's perfect for giving nervous kids "giraffe kisses" to check their reflexes. Too cute!

This week Pete moved in to the emergency department. With the new rotation comes a much better schedule. He's doing shift work and is only on call for c-sections. Yay for being able to have dinner together again!
