Sick Day

I mentioned yesterday I've been sick this week.
I finally went to see my asthma doctor yesterday.

I'm now loaded up on antibiotics & prednisone and was told to stay home from work today. 
I'm thankful to have a day to rest & get better, but all these meds really worry me.

To my blog friends that are mommies or pregnant:
Did any of you have to take prednisone while pregnant?

This is the SECOND round I've been through this pregnancy. The first was in August.
I just pray that it won't affect the baby. The doc says that my asthma is worse for the baby than the meds, so I guess I just need to trust him and not stress.

So...I'm going to try to rest & get better.
My day will included: lots of laziness, chicken noodle soup, (decaf) coffee, reading, catching up my DVR'd shows, and maybe making a few lesson plans.

Tomorrow is Halloween and it will be a crazy day. 
I know my kiddos at school will be super wound up, plus I am in charge of the Fall Festival at my church tomorrow night. It's going to be a fun, but crazy day!

Hope y'all have a wonderful Halloween!

Guess what?! 3 days until we find out Baby G's gender! :)

Fall Break

A whole week away from the stress of students, lesson plans, & all other school related things.
I needed this BADLY!

So far my fall break as been pretty busy. I've been working on church things, cleaning/cooking, & Tuesday we had a doctor's appointment for Baby G! We heard the precious heartbeat. NO better sound in the world. :)

And we now know the exact date we find out if our little one is a he or a she!
NOVEMBER 2! Three weeks from tomorrow! I absolutely cannot wait!

I'm so ready to call my baby a "he" or a "she" and not an "it"!
And give the little one his or her special name. 22 more days! 

Most days it still doesn't seem real that I'm actually pregnant. 
That a little miracle, who is part of me & part of my darling husband, is inside of me.
How amazing. :) I am so thankful and ready to be a mommy!

Happy Thursday, y'all :)
