However...since I am...I'll let them go and bid them the best. I always say that it's even better after I'm not the teacher because then I just get to be the family friend.
I finished the course of antibiotics, but still sound like I am a 5-pack-a-day smoker. If I still sound like this in a week, I guess I'll go back. I have to say that for the most part, I've been pretty healthy this pregnancy and I'm glad for that. In fact, that's pretty unusual for me.
At the last appointment, I compared weights from last month to this month and had lost a pound. Who said 2nd trimester was better? Anywhooo, in the last 11 days, I've found weight! I've gained about 5-6 pounds and am DEFINITELY showing. Pictures prove that!
It's been a VERY busy week...Monday was the last day for teachers, and clean-up time. After school that afternoon, I took a trip with John to Philadelphia. That may not have been the wisest thing for him to do--bring me--in light of the fact that he lives like a king on his business trips. Now I know, and there's no sympathy! We got back late Tuesday night and I turned around and drove down to Myrtle Beach to meet my dear friends from North Carolina--we taught together for years, and were amazed to realize we'd been friends for 9 years! It was wonderful weather, and even more wonderful company, and I was reminded just how much I LOVE the beach and was born for the ocean.
I drove back on Friday, and mom came out for the weekend for her birthday and brunch for Father's Day. I've spent the weekend rotating between chores and gaining weight and am pretty much looking forward to having tomorrow with no agenda. As I say that, I have a million things on the agenda, but knowing that what I don't get done tomorrow can go toward the next day is a very nice feeling!

Okay, baby is being hidden here...this was the four of us at breakfast one day. I LOVE those girls!
Umm...ya think I'm pregnant? Yes, that's a maternity suit and yes, it's getting too small. Already!
