Chicago is once again plunged into a bevy of winter weather activity! It stinks. Big Guy and I were in traffic for two and a half hours today on the way to work. As soon as I got into the office I felt like it was time to leave again for my 11:30 doctor appointment.
On that front, it looks like everything is tracking correctly and everything seems normal. Baby's head is down- which was no surprise to me since I think I feel it sometimes- and he seems like the right size! I am a different story. I have gained almost 10 lbs in the past two weeks! my pants are actually a bit snug now in the rear and they have been baggy and saggy the whole time! I know that the last 4 weeks of pregnancy is not the time to worry about being thin, but you just hate to see that scale jump so much!
Additionally, Big guy and I watched an instructional DVD last night about how to work our new Canon 50D. I know this makes us complete dorks, but it is a really informative DVD, it isn't boring and the whole things actually explains all of the tricky stuff like aperture and depth of field and shutter speed in a way that you can absorb. If anyone has a Canon that they would like to learn more about I would recommend the series of instructional DVDs- I am pretty sure he has them for all the different models and I think it was around $20. This is MUCH cheaper than some of the very expensive classes that are out there. I am really enjoying learning about this, and hope that it can be a mini hobby for Big guy and me.
Tomorrow is supposed to be really cold here and we have relaxed start times and departure times at work so that we can avoid the cold and stay safe on the roads- Big Guy just called and told me about a deal at whole foods where you get pizza on Wednesday nights for $11 or something like that. Last night there was a deal for a whole chicken for $5 and we stopped to get that- it was pretty good, but all I got was one breast and Big Guy ate the whole rest of the chicken!!! Does that seem right! I am the one who is eating for me and the baby- I should get more food! Big guy is such a human garbage disposal sometimes. I suppose I shouldn't complain-I made myself a whole huge plate of broccoli and he did buy me chocolate gelato which I very much enjoyed.
Sorry about the random post- I wasn't overly inspired today and just felt like rambling. i hope everyone is staying warm!
