New Hours

with January 01 right around the corner my midwife and I decided at my last apointment that it would be best for me to cut back on my hours at work to de stress and take it easy. I am now working 30 hour work weeks no longer that 6 hours at a time and no more than 3 days in a row, and ladies I tell you what, this has been great. This new schedule started this past Friday and I can be honest in saying I am much more relaxed, a lot less tense and have been sleeping much better at night. I think anyone would really to go from working 48 hrs to 30 is truly a blessing. My manager at work has been great also, I think he was actualy relieved when I brought in the note to him because all of the guys here are so worried that I will just plop out my little girl right here in the store, so now with my having shorter hours I think it makes them all feel a little better.

so yep, 39 days left until January 1st, I just can not believe it. this Pregnancy has been so great. I have read in lots of pregnancy books that every pregnancy is different but i must say the next time around I wish to have it like this all over again becuase it has been a blessing and easy to say the least. and i know this sounds weird, but  I am looking forward to labor.... i know i warned you that it woudl sound weird, but i actually met a lady at work last week who is pregnnat with her 4th child and she told me she LOVED labor, I said excuse me? i have never heard anyone say that and she said i mena i am a big fan of the epidural but yes i love the labor, all the anticipation leading up to holding your precious gift in your arms, there is just nothing like it, when she left i thought... wow... I can totally see myself looking at labor that way just minus the epidural... we shall see...
