21 weeks

Sorry for not writing last week. Life has been a bit of a whirlwind.

I'm starting to get really frustrated with how my work is starting to take things off my plate. I totally understand where they're coming from and why they're doing it, but it still sucks. All of a sudden I'm not in the loop with new things as I'll be here for only 3 more months tops, that is if there are no complications. And even though I know why it's happening and I do sorta foresee some complications as my blood pressure is already a bit high and my blood sugar is causing them to do the Diabetes tests early and often, it still sucks.

Other thing that's bothering me is the fact that my assistant is going to be taking over my position while I'm on Mat leave and I know full well that she's not ready. I think my boss is convinced that it'd be too hard to find someone new despite the fact that there are now more people than jobs. The main reason I think she isn't ready is it takes her 2 days to do something I do in an afternoon and she's already struggling with the amount of work I give her and I give her a quarter of what I do and she won't have an assistant. Oh well, not my decision. I'd just love to be a fly on the wall for her first month or two.

But on the upside, hubby is whisking me away for a week next week to get some much needed R&R, and when I get back it's only 13 more weeks till Mat leave, then 17 more weeks till baby.
Hip hip, so it all works out as it should.

Lots of love.

19 weeks

Hi everyone,
Well this was a very stressful week for me at work, but thankfully I got through it and it's the weekend.

As far as baby stuff. We had our ultrasound this week. It was so nice to see her again and see that she has a really strong heartbeat of 157. Very reassuring.

So funny thing, most of her measured 18 weeks 6 days, which was dead on, but somehow our little girl has long legs. Something neither my husband or I posses. Mind you we both have members of our families who were gifted with the gams, but neither of us. So her legs came in at 20 weeks, also when you look at the ultrasound, not that it means anything at this point, but she might have some full lips too. So maybe hubby should start practicing with the shotgun now. lol

But all is well. We're taking off this weekend to stay with some friends in Invermere and we just decided that we're going to take off for spring break as well and hear out to Vancouver as we both need some time away.
So I hope all is well with everyone else and I'll keep you all posted. I have my first obstetrician appointment next week so it should be good.
Love ya,
