I tried to sleep in today but but it didn't really work that way. I thought at first I was refreshed but soon after I got up I started to feel like shit. I was lethargic, tired cranky etc. Plus I had a headahce due to the fact that as soon as I got up I started gagging and ended up throwing up stomach acid. I ended up taking a tylenol, that's how bad my headache was. I don't like taking medicine unless I really need to. Today I really did. 

I tried reading but my head hurt to much to even concentrate. Chris fed and put monkey down for her nap and then went to lay down himself. I ended up joining him since evne though all I really wanted to do was read I needed a nap. I fell asleep for at least an hour or so. I think we both woke up at the same time monkey did. I felt a bit better but still really didn't want to do a whole lot except I really wanted to go to walmart for a pair of jeans and a kobo ereader. I have really wanted an ereader for the longest time!

Last night, at work, went by fast which was awesome.  I found out due to the new procedures at the machine for this one part, I will no longer need to bug an machine assistant or my supervisor at the end of my shift to stamp and sign my boxes. Well I still needed to last night but any new boxes I have will all be stamped and signed already. That honestly made my friggen night!  I always dread the end of my shift for that reason because everyone that can sign my boxes are always hard to find our way busy with their own crap.

Glucose test

Today I was planning on getting up shortly after 7am to go down and get my blood tested the doctor. I had mentioned to him about being super itchy everywhere at my last prenatal appointment (2 Fridays before). I pretty much decided Thursday that there was no way I could get up that early since I was exhausted. I thought if I went early I could avoid long line ups/waits. I hate having to sit there but because I was so tired I decided I didn't care. So Chris left work and came home to watch monkey around 10. I had called the day before to make sure there was a labratory  in the same building my doctor is in. I was pretty sure there was but I couldn't remember for sure. I was glad there was because you can pay with debit of visa to get out of the parking lot there instead of coins at the other one. It was $3 or $4 bucks the last time I was there so who knows how much it is now.

The next time I need blood drawn I am just going to go the same day that I get the sheet instead of having to go back and paying for parking again (it's $6 bucks there). I really didn't want to go but I left it till the last minute so I had no choice. I should have went the Friday before when Chris was still home because he had his wisdom teeth out. I was so tired that day that the last thing I wanted to do was leave before I had to especially since I had to go to work later.
Thankfully I brought a book with me. I got there and it was pretty empty so I was like sweet I will be in and out quickly. Unfortunately I had to get the glucose test done as well and having to drinking that small bottle of orange stuff that looks like orange pop but really isn't sucked big time. It is so horrible but I downed it as fast as I could. I figured the faster I got it down the faster my timer would start since I had to sit there for 1 hour before they took my blood samples. The last thing I wanted to do was sit there for 1 hour though since I was sooo tired. I was so glad to have my book. The worst thing was there was no clock anywhere!! So I couldn't even see how much time was passing. I couldn't even call Chris to tell him since I couldn't get a cell signal in there and was unable to see what time it was from that as well. No signal on my phone also means no clock. I wished I had my ipod with me. I thought the requisition was only to test my blood because of the itching. They took like five vials from me. I thought the glucose was for the next appointment but I guess it's over with now so that is good. I was so glad when my timer was up and I could go!

Yesterday at one point in the day, Monkey was sitting on the floor in the living room and had my bunched up socks where I had left them the night before and was trying to get them on her feet.  She couldn't get them on since they were in balls but she did have them on as far as she could get them on her toes. We were both watching her amazed that she knew what they were for and she was so intent on what she was doing.

Today just about 30-40 mins ago I had given her her sippy cup full of milk after we got home from grocery shopping , she finished it, walked over to the table our computers are on and stood up on her toes and put it on the side of the table! 
Her size five sandals now seem to fit her feet perfectly and I think she looks bigger (taller) but when we stood her by her height chart she seemed to be the same height. She is pretty tall though. I mean if she could figure out how to use door knobs she could do so easily since the top of her head is like 2-3 inches below the door knob. That would not be good though! I don't want her to grow up to fast.

She also figured out how to move a big box that we put across the kitchen entryway since we haven't gotten a plastic gate yet. So she escaped down the hall to her room. She also twice today fed Chris a few pieces of her lunch and supper. She is getting bigger and learning by the day! It's funny to hear what she tries to copy what we say :) I love her so much!

As for baby # 2, there have been a lot of kicks lately. Chris can even feel them as well. I think I am 25 weeks now but I need to double check my dates since the last time I was at the doctor he said that they had me down for a few weeks earlier. So I don't know. Hopefully next time we see him he will have the ultrasound results.

I have been super exahausted lately but I think that is probably normal with a second pregnancy since I have to get up with monkey then basically stay up until midnight when I get off work and I seem to be having a hard time falling asleep at night which is annoying. I might get up at 9am and feel fine but an hour later I am sooo sleepy that all I want to do is take a nap but I can't and most of the time when monkey finally goes for her nap I can't fall asleep then. It's a gamble though since sometimes I can and I feel better but sometimes I feel like complete shit so I try to avoid taking naps when I can. It sucks ,I can't wait to be on maternity leave. About 9 weeks left to go! Holy cow even though time seems to be going by slowly at the same time it seems to be flying by! I have already been back to work for almost 7 months! Crazy!
