"I don't think that's what you should be doing..."

...let me tell you about when I was pregnant."

It's becoming my least favorite new line I hear all the time. "I don't think you should be gaining a lot of weight, like you read." My favorite: "well maybe you don't need to gain as much because your weight will re-distribute." As D says, did they just call me fat?!? I certainly hope not!! Everyone has their opinions, and stories, and random advice. So far I've only had one belly pat/rub, but I know more of that is coming soon. How exciting. *please note sarcasm*

It's already been a rough week and it's only a 4 day week. I am starting to feel a little bit of the fatigue, and I had a strings meeting late last night. I thought I was doing well, and wasn't having much sciatic pain, but when I woke up this morning, it nearly made me fall down. It's been hurting all day at school. How long will I be able to keep playing games with the kids? It makes me sad...and miserable.

And I feel the nesting urge, even though I know it is SO early. I just want to clean the house and organize it ALL. I knwo, too much, but I feel this NEED that it has to be done ASAP. Partially, I think it's the excitement to see the nursery done, and know the gender of the tots, and start to think more about names, which we really haven't talked about a WHOLE lot. It's all so exciting.

On a non-tots side note, I am looking at 60-70 kids in strings this year! I jokingly said "I don't know what I did to make them all want to sign up" but I am really excited, and a little nervous. YIKES! That's a lot of kids to wrangle through a song!
