It has been a busy week. Josh is back in the full swing of classes and is busy with life. I have been swamped at school and just generally growing a baby. The baby has been really moving and kicking. Good strong kicks. I am hoping Josh will be able to feel it soon. I really can't wait for him to feel connected in that way. I have been feeling okay. No more throwing up, praise God, but still generally nauseous. I think I am coming down with another cold, which is frustrating because I really don't have time for that. I actually have a flu shot theory. I have never gotten a flu shot before because I don't really believe that they work. I have been teaching and working with kids for four years now without a flu shot and have never gotten sick, not once. When I got pregnant in the fall I thought, okay, everything I am reading says I should do this, so for the sake of my unborn child I got the flu shot. Well...I have been sick twice now. It brings to mind a Simpsons episode that linked the flu shot to a government conspiracy that gave people a desire to spend money and boost the economy. I think they might have been on to something.
Side note: 1 more week until we know if we have an Emma or a Rowan!
