Last week was somewhat eventful. On top of the overwhelming feeling of being pregnant and preparing for baby a lot of other things have been going on. It's difficult to talk about just because I don't feel it is my place. I'm learning that just because I'm an open book that somethings need to be left alone. I hate to be cryptic, and who knows maybe one day I'll write about the "other things" but right now isn't the time.
I had a discussion with my boss last week about my upcoming maternity leave. This process has definitely been stressful. I work for a company that employee's 30,000 people, and I feel like I'm the first pregnant lady calling HR trying to figure out my leave. I've called 4 different times, spoken to 10 different people (easily) been on the phone for more than hour each time, just go get 10 different answers. Thankfully my boss put me in contact with an actual HR person, who was able to answer my questions. I would think it wouldn't be that hard.
I went to the dentist today. Not a good idea. About 20 minutes in, I got dizzy and super hot that I started dripping sweat down my face. I had the dental hygienist stop and bring me back up. Got some water and cooled down. We tried again, and I got a pillow to put underneath my butt. But I only lasted another 10 minutes. Needless to say, I won't be going back to the dentist until baby is born. Big super kudos to Shelly (my dental hygienist) who just called me to check to see how I was doing! I love this dentist, and have been seeing Shelly for the past 6 or 7 years. I'm so thankful she was empathetic.
Lastly, we got Baby Sweat's crib today!
