The month of November was SUPER emotional as both my DH last grandparents passed away within weeks of each other. I find one of the hardest times in a relationship is when your significant other is in a situation that you can do nothing about. I so badly wanted to take the pain and sadness away from him.
Christmas has finally hit our household. We got the tree last week and I have been decorating since then. Today I think is a good present wrapping day.
In other news...I was "terminated" from work while I was on medical leave. Yes...I am still on medical leave...more on that later. I got a lawyer and am now in the process of filing and submitting paperwork for this. Does the drama never seem to end!?
A couple weeks ago due to the pregnancy and the accidents I was approved for disability...which was huge. That meant I could buy DH Christmas presents without borrowing money from him. I have always been a pretty financially independent person and that month and a half of no income was really hard. Sure...I had savings...but after paying my bills and misc for two months that was looking pretty non-existent.
On the pregnancy front...
I am currently 25 weeks. Starting about 6ish weeks ago I was getting this intense pressure and pain in my pelvis. After the approval of my specialist I was sent to a maternity chiropractor who informed me that the left side of my pelvis was tilted and twisted in to my right side. She said it could have been like this for months and I was just starting to feel the pain now because of the 15 extra "baby" pounds and relaxin coursing through my body. This pain makes it super hard to lay down which as you can probably tell already is effecting my sleeping. Stairs are also tough. I find I can last on my feet for a lot less time then I use to...and when I do something like grocery shopping I am wiped for the rest of the day. I feel less and less like me with every passing day. I think I have gotten pretty big...here is a picture to prove it!
|4 Weeks Pregnant|
|23 Weeks Pregnant|
I am very VERY grateful I am not working because I do not know how I would get through work at this point. With the lack of sleep, pain and otherwise this has been a very interesting pregnancy to say the least!
I am still seeing my doctor, specialist and a women's center at regular intervals to monitor mine and babies progress due to all the complications.
Baby girl is the most active at nights. In fact...most of the time she keeps me up with all her ninja kicking and punching at my uterus. I am thankful for these movements though because they are a constant reminder that she is doing ok. I am getting excited as I near the end and am looking forward to things like my 3D ultrasound and baby showers! I also cannot wait to finally meet her...what a crazy journey this has been!
