Life has been busy, but sweet. We just finished school holidays, a two week period that teachers and students have off after each of the 4 terms (although with term 4, we have about 8 weeks off). Over the holidays, we had the goal of switching our office and bedroom. We did it, and I’m so glad we did. Hubby is very happy with the extra space he has in his office, and our new bedroom is the perfect size and very cozy. Plus, now we can begin the nursery! I will do a post soon on the plans and do a nursery tour when it’s all done.
Another great part about the break: Having some days where we could just relax and enjoy each other’s company. We took a small road trip to the coast and had a nice day of shopping at one of the nicest shopping centres that we know of in Australia. It was for an extended birthday celebration (since I had to work on my birthday) and I was also thinking of my friend Leah from the States since it was her birthday that day. Other days were spent journaling, crocheting, and just existing with out the pressure of work. I am pretty excited about getting back into the swing of teaching again, though, ’cause I only have this month and November left before my maternity leave! Plus, teaching private piano allows me any amount of time off that I need. Now, I’m a bit lucky, because we have school holidays for a whole month and a half before the baby’s due. Then, I’m taking the first term off for my official maternity leave. So I will have a lot of time to relax and welcome baby boy into the world.
I haven’t really had any new symptoms. My hips hurt worse than ever. They apparently twist out of place while I sleep on my side. They’re pretty painful. I’m going to the chiropractor today and hoping I can figure something out to stop waking up in such pain throughout the night. Anyone have any advice for toning down the pain? I feel like an old lady. Also, my due date changed to a week later, which is when I thought it should be anyway.
I truly hope you have a fantastic week! I am praying for each and every one of you that are ttc and hoping you get your bfps soon.
