Boring Update

Not too much going on lately at the Burns homestead. I am in the boring in between stage or your not newly pregnant anymore, so the thrill has sort of warn off and I haven’t felt any definite movement yet. There is a lot to do to get ready for Cletus’ big arrival, but I am not motivated to do anything about it yet. I am still exhausted by 9:30 at night & I am still occasionally getting nauseous & sick. I told Rich I am so ready for the feel better stage. Last night after I get sick at Target I told Rich that I was ready to promise Cletus a pony & a sports car at 16 if he would just stop making me sick all the time.

Maybe I should stop calling Cletus a he. Last night I had a girl dream. First one since I got pregnant. All the rest have been boys. We are babysitting tonight, but this baby looked exactly like me when I was a baby. Also had a different name then the girl we are babysitting. My grandma and aunt were there in my dream, which would never happen in real life so I am pretty sure it was ours. Maybe it was supposed to be Autumn, although that wasn’t this baby’s name. I have very vivid & weird dreams. The other night I had a dream a co-worker dropped me off at my house & 4 live bats were hanging out in front of the door. When I went to go in the paired off and started kissing!!

Like I said, things are pretty boring. I was thinking of renting a Doppler to listen to the heartbeat, but I don’t think I am going to fly that by Rich. I tried to appeal to his geek side, by telling him that it records sound you can download & has a read-out, but I don’t think it worked.

So I feel like there is so much research & things to do and no motivation by me to do them. I am ready for the second trimester goodness to kick in anytime now. Hear that Cletus?

Too bad you don't know someone else who is pregnant that might have bought a doppler to listen to their baby. ;)
