Well kinda! I will or plan to be back mid-May to finish out the last couple weeks, but for 9 short weeks, I will be relearning how to be a mom again. I will be getting taught lessons by an OMG…three year old as to how to evenly divide my time and make him feel special. I will be a zombie of epic proportions because let’s be honest here, Eyan was not a good sleeper, so why even hope for better.
But today is my last day of work! I put on my maternity pants and squeezed into my typical Friday spirit gear and thought how weird it is going to be for my students to see me not pregnant. I am looking forward to that. I am at a total weight gain of about 25lbs (that is still 25lbs lighter then I was with Eyan)! I am kind secretly banking on the weight falling off again since I gained so little comparatively and the weight flew off the last time. I am hoping the HCG hormone stays in my system a little longer and I get skinny skinny skinny! Oh I also cannot wait to get a haircut and color (Aunt Kelly I am coming for you)! I do not cut or color my hair when I am pregnant for fear that my hormones will make irrational decisions and I will end up Brittany Spearsing it and truly bald is just not a good look on me.
Leaving today is bittersweet. I really love my co-workers. They are super funny, supportive and helpful. My administration is the same way and even people I still do not really know still say hi in the halls. It is just a very pleasant place to work. My students are crazy, but I have enjoyed them. Like I posted Tuesday, they are just really sad for me to leave and it is pretty darn endearing! However, I AM READY to be done working. The swelling and headaches and energy that I need to continue it just not working. In addition my appointment on Wednesday was not great and lead to some extra labs to make sure that they were not going to have to take baby girl early. I go back this afternoon for more tests but I am still banking on not having her until Monday!
Watch the blog or Facebook for a picture update. It takes me a bit to recover, but I promise I will put a picture up of our new addition at some point! Prayers for a safe delivery and speedy recovery!
