We flew into Tampa around 11:30 pm on Sunday night, which got us home a little after midnight. Needless to say, I’ve been EXHAUSTED the past couple of days. I’m just not over the three hour time change, yet, I guess.
Although I had a fantastic time on our trip (I will probably blog about it tomorrow with some pics), I was ready to go home. 9 days is a long time away from home! I missed my bed, my bathroom, and my cats! Speaking of my little kitties…I must say that one of my favorite things about coming home after a trip is how happy the cats are! Boo and Lily have been super cuddly (Lily is on my lap sleeping as we speak) and I have enjoyed snuggling with them at night while I sleep.
I had a tremendous amount of swelling during the flight and trip. So, although I hate to say this, that was my last trip without kids! My midwife and I both agreed this afternoon that traveling is now over and done with until after the baby is born. I wish I could go with Matt to Illinois in a couple of weeks, though!! 😦
Speaking of my midwife, I saw her this afternoon and confirmed that I do not have gestational diabetes. Yay!! I’ll still be watching my sugar intake anyway, but it’s nice to know that I do not have any complications in this pregnancy. I have been very blessed with that being that the getting pregnant part was quite a complication in and of itself. I am now seeing the Dr. every two weeks now, which is fine with me, because as you all know I love hearing Tiny’s heartbeat. Today it was 151 bpm!!
In the meantime, I have plenty to do this summer! I haven’t really talked much about this, but Matt has a surgery scheduled in a few weeks and Mike is moving out this week. All that combined with getting the upstairs room ready for the baby means no free time for me!!!
