25 Weeks

This was a bit of a tough week, although new baby helped it not seem so bad by being super active :)

Ryan was in Iceland for work most of the week, so my mom stayed over to help with Josie, which was good. But the combination of Ryan being gone (and Josie being aware of it for the first time), switching Josie to her new preschool, and the time change was pretty hard. I still haven't adjusted to the time change, so in addition to all my apparently usual wakeups throughout the night, I've been mostly awake for the day by 4:30 or 5am. Josie's transition to the new preschool has been a lot rougher than I was anticipating (although her teachers have assured me that she's doing really well), so there have been quite a few tears for both of us this week, since I'm sad that she's sad about being left at a new place.

So, perhaps needless to say, I'm pretty exhausted and drained. I've also eaten a ton this week since I'm constantly hungry (even when I'm feeling a little sick from having just eaten too much), so I'd like to say that new baby is having a growth spurt, but I think it may just be me :-\ But regardless, my constant companion was very active this week, which was nice to feel him or her kicking (or punching) around so much. I also got my Rhogam shot situation figured out, so I'll be going to visit the very nice and accommodating midwives at another practice kinda sorta near my work in a couple of weeks for that.
