Andrew's Halloween Party!

Andrew got to dress up for halloween for his school party!  I have to admit, he makes one cute Dr.  It was fun being able to hand out with all the kids and parents.  I have always been confused when the teachers tell me that Andrew is perfect at school, and it was great having a chance to observe Andrew at school.  I have to say that Andrew listens to everything the teacher says and he is very calm.  If I could just find out how to make him do this at home, I would be in business!  I guess I'm happy that we don't have any problems at school, and I'll take what I can.

Six Months Pregnant

So I'm finally 6 months pregnant and I'm feeling worse then ever.  I seriously think that I have had every bad side effect of pregnancy!  So now, my nausea has gotten worse.  My medication is only helping so much, and I feel nauseas from the moment I open my eyes in the morning, until the minute I go to bed at night.  UGH!!!!!!!, is all I can say!!!!!!!  I'm also having insomnia, my fibromyalgia is acting up still, and now I'm getting restless leg syndrome.  Of course my legs don't get restless until I want to to go bed at night.  I find myself walking laps in the house, and going up and down the stairs to get rid of the feeling, and sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and have to do the same thing again.  I'm also getting the traditional heartburn and indigestion, but those problems seam like nothing compared to the other problems.  The other weird thing that has been happening is, I have a strained ligament in my leg from the pressure of the baby.  My midwife said there is nothing I can do at this point to allow it to heal, because I'm only going to get bigger, so I'm just trying to deal with the pain when I have it, and hopefully after the baby comes, it will heal quickly.  

So aside of all the negative of feeling horrible everyday, I am getting very excited about this little addition to our family.  I'm still working on her room, but I'm about done.  The other day I ordered a wall decal that has her name on it, and then a verse that says "Every good and perfect gift comes from above".  I can't wait till I get it and can put the last detail in her room.  If you notice in the picture above, I found a little chandelier to hang in her room.  The funny thing is, it isn't a regular light, but it is a night light.  I fell in love with this, when I saw it and couldn't resist getting it for her.  As you can see, I'm not doing the traditional nursery but instead I'm going for a more elegant feeling for her room, that she will grow in to.  After 3 kids you start to realize that a baby nursery decorated for a baby will have to be redone after a few years, and I'm intending on leaving her room the way it is for quite some time.
