Well this past week my back started hurting-thanks to my sciatic nerve (have to love this part of pregnancy). Well for 2 or 3 days I was able to manage the pain and just deal with it-that is until Sat. Brad went to run some errands and I went to get off the sofa upstairs to put Austin down for a nap and that's when I realized something was wrong. I managed to get Austin in his room and get him down for a nap, then I had to crawl like a baby downstairs. All I wanted to do was lay down in my bed and relax. Well when I got into our room and tried to lift my leg to get in the bed it wasn't happening. I couldn't move or walk-when Brad got home he found me laying in our bedroom floor crying. It took us about 10 mins for Brad to help me into bed, then we called the Dr on call at my OBGYN office. They called us back right away and went over everything with us and said that the only thing I could do was stay in the bed for the next 3-4 days. That's right bed rest & I am only 17 weeks pregnant. How is this suppose to work when I have a 2 year old? Well I have spent the last 3 days in the bed resting and I am so over it. This morning I tried to get up and take care of a few things around the house and needless to say I am back in the bed with my back hurting. Brad has to go back to work tomorrow so I am praying that my back will be better enough for me to take care of the house and Austin.
Recently Austin has really got into anything that involves dogs. He walks around "barking" all of the time. Which was cute at first, but some times he does it more than he talks. Well he has really started enjoying watching Clifford The Big Red Dog. So when we found out Clifford was coming to story time at our local Barns & Noble we knew we had to take Austin to meet him.
Austin started back to school on September 8th (actually a Mothers Day Out program). We moved him to a new school this year that is closer to our house since we will be having the new baby this year. Austin has been in the program now for 2 weeks and he is starting to adjust a little bit more each day. It has been a rough start for him with separation anxiety but it is getting better. Daddy was in charge of taking pictures the first day of school so these are the only photos we have.
As many of you know I work from home which is both good and bad. Every day is "mommy take your son to work day" at my house. Most days Austin is very good and will let me work while he plays with his cars or reads his books. But on this day Austin decided he really needed to help mommy with her work. He looks so darn cute I had to take some photos.
Recently Austin has found a new way to watch tv at home. He likes to lay with his back against the sofa and his legs propted up on the coffee table. He is too funny.
