Blogging at 5am...great
I do not get up this early. Riley usually determines when I get up and it's mostly around 7-8. He hasn't slept since 3 this morning....he's up and moving around. He won't lay down in one place for more than 10 seconds. He slept for about an hour, in bed with us while I was petting him, then got up and left. He acts like something scares him, running from room to room. I don't know...it's freaking me out.
I'm more on edge with it because I found out today that two of his siblings died last week. The family says they were poisoned. I cried, right there in session. Call it my hormones, call it my dog lover side, I don't care but it was so sad. So now I'm all worried that something is wrong with Riley. Roxy is acting fine, she's looking at him like "lay down man, chill out".
In other, happier news..we're at 29 weeks! I can't wait until Friday, our last ultrasound. She's grown more than twice the size she was at our first ultrasound so this one should be more eventful I think...if she isn't sleeping. I'm very excited.
Work is getting harder for me, mainly because I don't stay in one spot for more than 3 hours. I'm up moving around, getting kids from classrooms, driving round and round. It's getting to be exhausting. During pregnancy I wouldn't mind a desk job, sure I'd have to get up and walk every now and again but not ALL day. I'm hoping to be able to whittle down my caseload by the beginning of May so I'm not doing so much. It would be me that has her water break in a session with a kid, traumatizing the kid and herself for life.
I'm definitely feeling much more "pregnant" now, with the belly and all. It's harder to roll over in bed (which I have to do every hour), harder to get up from sitting, just harder to mobilize. Still two months to go, so I know it'll only get worse from here on out. :)
I'm attempting to go back to sleep. Riley is still up pacing. :(
