14 week belly shot


Thought I'd share...
Lately I have STILL had headaches. It's the worst part of this, waking up every day to my head pounding. I know that today it has to do with catching a mild cold. Otherwise I am feeling good, still tired, but doing well.
I made a major decision. I have my next dr appt on Nov 11 (17 weeks). I am having such a tough time with work being on my feet all day, the stress of it, and just really feeling sick. I have had some pressure in my belly which the nurse attributes to my uterus growing, but it is so uncomfortable when I have to stand all day. If I am still feeling that way appt time, I am going to tell him about it, if he has a good suggestion I will follow it. But I will most likely quit my job anyway. If I put in my 2 week notice the next day I will be done by Thanksgiving. Which means this would be the first holiday season in my adult life I can actually celebrate. I wouldn't have to miss Thanksgiving dinner with family and friends because I have to work the next day. I can relax at my sis-in-law's at Christmas and not have to worry about driving up late Christmas eve or leaving at midnight Christmas night.
It's scary, though. Not having that extra income AND having 2 new mouths to feed, but I know we will get through it all :)

You have to do what's best for you and the babies. Is there any way you can modify your job- like get a stool and sit down to ring up sales for a while every few hours or process stock? I recently got an extra rolling chair in my room that I now scoot around to each table while the kindergartners are working- and that's helped. I've definitely had to get creative- my next step is getting a cot to bring to school to keep in my store room to rest on during recess times... I also just bought some more "sensible" shoes (read: not as cute) for work... is that something you can do too?

BTW- love the belly shot!

look at you grow!!! i love it...:) you are all baby and don't even look pg anywhere else! skinny minny! hehe rub that wonderful buddha belly for me...

as far as work goes, i say go with your gut. maybe your doctor can sign you out so you can get disability. just be honest and tell him how hard it is for you. i'm betting he will...then you can get disability and not have to worry about putting in your two weeks until your maternity leave...they can't fire you if you are on disability...and you'll get roughly half of what you make now but it's better than nothing and might help the stress of no income for a few more months..:)

i wish we could be with you on christmas...but i am hoping to be able to afford to fly out with the girls in april for the babes...i'll do everythign i can to make it happen...;) if i can make it to the shower i'll do that too, but that plan is less realistic financially. i will send my gifts though with mom..;)

i love you soooooo much...

I am feeling those same pains in my ute...like pressure pushing downward and it scares me too. I found that when I sat down it got better...but as a teacher I can't always do that! Whatever you decide to do I'm sure everything will work out...baby-wise and money-wise...it is scary to think about depending on one income though!!! I know what you mean!!

Your belly is too cute!!! YAY
