I'm back - after a VERY long car ride - and my mom is visiting. I ended up road tripping out there and my mom was scared of me driving back alone. After all according to my mom, "I'm a baby having a baby". Oh, moms. But it's nice to have her here, she's always a help with the boys and fun to hang out with. She'll fly back on Friday.
Ohio was nice - or as nice as Ohio gets. No, just kidding, but it's definitely not a place I would want to live. In fact, I probably would've never set foot in the state if my family didn't decide to relocate there. Of course, my mom and rest of the family think that Mary should get a position at Ohio State. As much as I try to explain to my family the process of getting a job as a professor they just don't understand. My mom and sister think you can just fill out an application and get a job. It's definitely a much more detailed process and Mary does something very specific so somebody has to be looking for that. They also couldn't grasp that her going to Ohio State wouldn't be an advancement in her career.
In baby news, I had a midwife appointment today. I love my midwife, she even hugs me. Do you think an OB would hug me? LOL. My mom ended up tagging along too, her and Mary were hoping for an ultrasound but we just listened to the heartbeat. Still, that's exciting. Babies heartbeats are seriously fast. Apparently, it's because they are small so the blood is rushing through quicker and they haven't developed the nervous system that slows it...or something like that ;-)
For nausea, she recommended that I take B6 three times/day and then 1/2 a Unisom at night. I'm a little hesitant on the Unisom but hey, maybe it will also help me sleep. Oh well, off to enjoy my last 1/2 hour of a quiet house. My first full day at home and I already feel exhausted - getting kids dressed early in the morning, picking up Chloe from the kennel, bathing her, going to my appointment, grocery shopping. I definitely enjoyed my Ohio trip of only eating (food that I didn't cook), shopping, and sleeping but c'est la vie - maybe in another life I'll be a lady of leisure.
