We took my precious Dottie to the Humane Society on thursday :( We couldn't find a home for her, and they had an opening that day. She was tearing up the cord on our air conditioner unit, wood on our desk, tearing out sheet rock in our garage, and destroying anything she could find. She barked all the time for no reason. Vet said she was bored somehow. We have talked about what to do for a few months, and we finally decided that we had to get rid of her. We aren't going so spend $400+ to retrain her because who knows if that will work and it could take months. Also we now have over $300 worth of damage to fix from her. She is a playful big puppy! She likes to have her belly rubbed, and wants to sit in your lap. She needs a home that has little kids who can run around with her and play all day. We work all day, and don't have the time and I sure don't have the energy to give her the attention she deserves. We have our other lab Abby, but she is 3 years old and not in that hyper puppy stage. If I wasn't pregnant we would have kept her probably. We were concerned that she would cause more damage, and bark when we had a newborn all the time. We aren't bad pet owners. I feel like one though. We really tried with her. I cry every single time I think about her. When we dropped her off she was sooooooooooooo sweet and good! She was playful, and obeyed. The lady at the humane society probably thought we were weird for bringing in such a sweet puppy. It made it worse that she was so perfect at that moment. We both cried when we left. Heck, we still cry about it. It has been hard the past few days to deal with her being gone. The silence is WEIRD! I miss her crazy hyper precious face :( Hopefully she will be adopted soon. They said they would call us when she is adopted :)
I miss you, and love you very much! I hope you are adopted by a wonderful family!
It was inevitable that I would get sick. I am constantly around kids at work, and the flu/cold/sinuses/stomach bug has exploded around there. I started to feel crummy on Thursday morning, and it only got worse and worse. I am pretty sure I either had a bad sinus infection or a head cold. It didn't help that I cried most of thursday about giving Dottie away. I didn't have body aches, just a runny nose and I felt like my head was going to explode at any moment! Thank goodness it wasn't the flu! Kyle and I went to walgreens to find me medicine that was on my approved pregnancy list. I was so worried to take any medicine, but I needed it. Sudafed is what worked best. I tried to not take more than 2 a day. I was miserable. I quarantined myself to our guest bedroom just in case I was contagious. I hate sleeping alone! I snuck in to snuggle with Kyle a few times, but I immediately started coughing or sneezing. I am a horrible patient, and loathe being sick. I could not get to sleep, and woke up from 2-4 every morning. I started feeling better today so yay!
So it has taken me 13 weeks to vomit during this pregnancy. I started gagging on friday when I put my prenatal vitamin in my mouth them BAM....hello toliet! It was gross. I didn't even feel nauseous. I took my vitamin the next day and was fine. Must have been a bad gagging moment. I'm starting to feel pukey again today probably because of all the drainage. I feel much better today, but still weak. I ate chicken noodle soup varieties all weekend. Chicken and Stars is the best! I've lost 4lbs! I'm hoping to get under 200lbs by March. I don't expect to gain much in this pregnancy. I'm really trying to be healthy eating salads and lots of fruits.
I have had a few off weeks where I wasn't giving 100% and I hate it. I got behind on stuff, and stressed. I'm making a few changes tomorrow to lessen the stress some. I need to get back on track, and back to rockin'!
Time to think Positive!
Alright no more griping about my bad week. Time to talk about the good things. Here's 10 good things about this week!
1. Kyle and I have been working hard to keep our house picked up all week, and we succeeded!
2. I got caught up on some movies on the DVR!
3. Finally started writing in the pregnancy calendar my mom bought me for Christmas.
4. Ate healthy stuff like salads for lunch.
5. Stayed hydrated while sick.
6. Started having crazy worries about Baby T being affected by my sickness, and immediately starting praying. God calmed me!
7. I can feel my uterus! It's a hard spot down near my growing pudgie. Yeah pudgie. It kind of blends in with my fat, but I can tell where I'll start showing first. I'm ready to feel/look pregnant.
8. Started being emotional over every little thing haha
9. Praised God for such a wonderful helpful husband!
10. Trying to be an encouragement to friends by praying for them, and being open about it.
