Week 30: Why I will be the world's most annoying parent.

So I was in the bathroom at the movies this week and I was listening in on two teen girls talking, so as i'm casually washing my hands and taking a really long time to dry, really just listening to what they were talking about...

Girl #1: I have something really important to tell you.
Girl #2: I nearly did it with this guy, but he was scared and I was scared so we didn't.

I turned around to these girls, and said I'm glad you didn't sleep with him, just look what happened to me **pointing at my belly**.

Both girls had an immediate horror on their face, which is the reaction I was going for.

But then quickly after I left the bathroom felt my stomach drop to my knees because that could be Allie in 14 years. I can't even think about it. I now know why parents are crazy, i'm sure this is just the tip of the iceberg, and this one instance will make me the most nosiest and annoying parent ever.

This week has been so full. I worked an extra shift to help out my work peeps. Let me tell you something, in the nursing world, when you pick up an extra shift it always looks like this:

Charting is exponentially more on days you pick up. NEVER ENDS. NEVERRRRRRRRR.

You quickly realize that 5 patients, really only want their Dilaudid and refuse to get the oral version, which at my job it takes 20x longer to get IV version. Imagine doing this every 4 hours for 5 patients. 

When all you really wish is that kittens fixed everything... 

and you think to yourself, you are never picking up another extra shift while pregnant. NEVER. 

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE being a nurse, it really is the most rewarding thing and I couldn't imagine doing anything else, but being a nurse and pregnant at the same time is hard. Especially in the third trimester.  

It's time for another riveting edition of preggo thoughts: 

  • We finally have a car seat, No more stress dreams for this girl, which is completely irrational at this point, but clearly your subconscious is telling you get it together. 
  • Lightening pain has been regular for me this week. OH MAN. 
  • NESTING. My goodness I started cleaning yesterday and didn't stop, Matt was pretty stoked, and has secretly waited for this for 4 years of living together. #i'mnotthatmessy #okilied
  • Soaking up walks with my girl, Greta. She has been a really wonderful calming source in my life. 
  • Has anyone noticed foot cramps while preggo? I don't have leg cramps, but I have these horrible foot spasms. It's so strange. 
  • I've missed Charleston a lot this past week. I don't know if it's just because it's getting closer to summer and I miss southern summers. I had a dream that we still lived there and then I had to wake up. :/ Not to mention missing all my friends.
  • My feet are gigantic. I seriously think they have grown a least a half of a size, and their wide. I'm pretty much walking on skis. 
  • Gizmo is pretty much the best big brother ever. He loves laying right next to my belly, and Allie kicks and moves so much with him so close. #siblings

  • Preterm labor symptoms have reared their ugly head again. So on Thursday at work I was  running about like usual, and noticed some severe back pains. I mean the pains were so bad I had to sit down in a patient's room. Went to L&D, obviously I need to sit down more at work. HAHAHAHAHAHA THEY TOLD ME TO SIT DOWN MORE AT WORK. DISCLAIMER: NURSES DON'T EVER SIT DOWN, EVER. So I'll be going to the doctor next week to see what the game plan is, I don't need Allie coming this early, A. she still has some baking to do. B. I need to scale back with work. I been trying to stick it out as long as I can, but where I work my patient load is 9 patients. Yes, 9 patients, 4 telemetry and 5 med-surg. While I work on a team of myself, an LVN and a CNA, things get crazy. There's always a family to talk/educate, doctors to call, and almost always a meltdown happening somewhere. 

Oh yes, Happy 2nd Bloggiversary to Texan Girl Talks! I can't believe i've been blogging now for 2 years. A lot has happened in the past two years and I just want to say thank you for always supporting my thoughts and the blog!

Until Next Week!!
