I am 26 week pregnant now and almost in my third trimester. I am way excited to have baby boy here and be done with pregnancy. I love feeling baby boy kick and seeing my belly move when he squirms around. He is incredibly active and I never really have to worry about it if I felt him because his movement is pretty constant. On the downside, having a pinched nerve in my back was more than I bargained for and can be pretty painful at times. The doctor suggested some exercises and getting an exercise ball, but also said that it could go away or just be like this the whole time. The exercises help a little, but not much. I thought it might be going away around week 24, but it came back shortly after. Apparently laying on my nerve is just super cushy. Other than that, I am just hot and tired most of the time and really, really looking forward to fall!
Lately, I haven't really seen Cade much... or really the entire summer. He was gone for a month at field training and the rest of the time he is one the river. He generally gets up in the morning before I wake up and I leave for work before he gets home and he is asleep when I get home. Right now he is finishing up the season with his last Cataract Canyon trip before moving up to Salt Lake this weekend to start school.
I am really excited to move into our new, oldish apartment. Although it isn't as nice as our old apartment, it will be a lot closer to campus which will be nice for Cade and will hopefully allow me to make some friends. Since I am pretty pregnant right now Cade and I decided it would be best if I stay in Moab and work for another month or so before moving up to Salt Lake. I will be going up for a week to help him move and then going back probably every other week to see him and go to doctors appointments. I'm kind of sad that we have to be apart again, but I think it will help me keep my sanity to still be working and having a little extra money will be nice-especially with the baby coming.
Other than working, I have also been sewing a lot and doing random projects like painting furniture. Unfortunately, there is only one place in Moab to buy fabric and it is expensive and only has a small selection. On the bright side, I have forced myself to use up some old fabric that I have had for a few years which is kind of refreshing. Although, I can't wait to go to Salt Lake and buy some new fabric to make more things for baby boy.
We still haven't decided on a name for the little rascal yet. I told Cade I feel like I need to see him before
