I finally feel like when I go into public people are looking at me like a pregnant woman, not a she's-been-eating-too-many-jelly-doughnuts-lady. There was a while there where I looked awkward (see the first two pictures). It was as if I had gone back in time to Junior High and was in that "developing" stage. Niiiice.
Anywho, I spent the majority of the pregnancy working for Wasatch County doing Speech-Language Pathology. It was a great year and I loved all the wonderful people that I worked with. The last day of school was bittersweet since I have decided not to return next year. Commuting 80 minutes a day was wearing on me, and I don't think I'll want to make the same commute with a baby at home. Instead, I've accepted a position to be a private contractor down here in the valley. I'll be able to make my own schedule and work 2 days a week. Boom baby! I honestly couldn't ask for a better setup after having a summer baby. It's like there's someone up there looking out for us, or something ;)
So, with school out I've become a full-time couch potato/cleaner extraordinaire. I've started organizing every drawer, cupboard, nook, and cranny of our little house. I've assembled furniture, and probably lifted stuff that should be off-limits. Oh well, no contractions yet so I'm not worrying. I'm pretty much just a parasite host at this point. I'm in no rush to get this baby here, but I am anxious for her to come so I'll have something to do besides cleaning and organizing all day. I'd also like my body back. Granted, I'm planning to breastfeed so I technically won't get my body back for a while, but at least when she kicks it won't be aimed at one of my organs.
So, all-in-all, things are going well with the Neve clan. Bob works, Maggie sleeps, Baby wiggles, and I clean.
And the fun is just beginning...
