I had a lazy weekend with the hubby - and it was just what I needed. It's my last weekend of winter break afterall. Friday and Saturday I felt kind of crappy - the nausea was making a reappearance but I'm thinking it was just a short visit. While I wasn't feeling well on Friday, I called the hubby and vented. Sometimes, the emotions just really do hit you out of nowhere. He got me somewhat calmed down, and when I got off the phone I decided I'd work on some homework to distract myself.
Just as I was looking my homework up and opened the book to start reading, the front door unlocked. It nearly scared me half to death. Tessa started barking (my little guard dog) until the door opened and Ian was walking in 2 hours early from work, with flowers in his hand. I started clapping and giggling like a little girl. Seriously, to have him be able to surprise me 2 hours early was awesome enough, the flowers just sealed the deal. After he came him and gave me a kiss, he went back out to his car to get his work bag. Through the door he came with another bouquet of flowers. He must've known I really needed some cheering up. Poor guy then came in and cleaned up the mess I'd made with baking during the day.
It made me start thinking of how my relationship with Ian has changed since finding out we are expecting. I wouldn't have thought I could love him more than I did before, but pregnancy really brings us together on a whole new level. He's the person I share all my fears with about the pregnancy. All the excitement, we share together. And all the personal, not so lovely things of pregnancy that occur to a lady's body - I share it all with him. And I would've thought he would've been grossed out about hearing these things - but instead, he laughs with me about them. There is no judgment there.
As a side note, I have been reading Jenny McCarthy's Belly Laughs book and truly it's making me feel like I'm not alone with all the things that happen during pregnancy. If you are newly pregnant, or going to be pregnant at some point, I highly recommend you read this book. She is bluntly honest about everything going on - the good, bad and ugly. But she makes you laugh about all these things.
I had high hopes to go maternity clothes shopping over the weekend - but it just didn't happen. It is on my to-do list, along with lots of other errands that I've been avoiding for weeks. I am feeling like my energy might be starting to increase a bit, so here's to hoping that I can get to some things on that list over the next few weeks. But considering this belly is ever-expanding, shopping for some clothes is probably at the top of that list!
