I am just getting over the chest cold and my body handled it very well, I didn't require any medication, nor did I lose my energy or appetite, as soon as I felt the heaviness in my chest I called a doctor right away and she told me to just drink fluids and stay hydrated. I haven't gotten sick until now during the whole 25 weeks. I know that during pregnancy your immune system is weakened, but I'm hoping with my diet and healthier choices that my body will protect me from sickness in the weeks ahead.
So this week I finally received my baby bassinet by Summer Infant and my Graco Swing + Rocker. I assemble them both myself on Friday which didn't take long at all :) They're both such awesome products, and I would recommend them to anyone. (Graco DuetSoothe Swing + Rocker in Winslet) (Summer Infant Classic Comfort Wood Bassinet)
I have everything I need for now, I will wait for the later months to order the last bit of stuff for the baby, because I don't want to get too carried away with getting everything right now. The swing and bassinet give me a little peace of mind.
I've realized I have done more growing up in the last year than I have my whole adolescence, and I have my wonderful boyfriend to thank for that. Year 19 marked so many milestones in my development and transition into an adult.
- I've had do to my taxes for the first time (which wasn't as difficult as I thought)
- I bought and signed up for an iPhone which I've paid on time every month :)
- I've booked and paid for my own ticket on an airline (so expensive)
- I've mastered the making of all easy-to-make foods
- and graduated to making home-made meals!
- I've learned to be more direct with people
- I've become pregnant!
Of course, these things don't make me an adult, but I've come a long way. I've never had someone teach me to do these things. No one ever said 'come over here and I'll show you how to cook Kraft dinner' which would have been some what useful and saved me the embarrassment of proving to my mother in-law I could not make it if my life depended on it lol . . . But that's really no ones fault because I was so young when my dad passed, and then moving from home to home and sort of just being 'in-the-way.' Also, just being a teenager and not really caring about all of the responsibilities of adulthood was kind of what I had in mind at the time. But I do pride myself for not getting into the whole drinking and drug thing :) I stayed active and focused on my hobbies which is exactly why I am the person I am today :)
There's going to be a lot of changes this year. I graduate in June and then a week later I am due to have my baby :) Quentin and I will experience being new parents together, then our plan after a few months is to move to Yellowknife where he has a secure job in his trade. He is so happy with his career and I am willing to do anything I can to make sure that he continues to be successful with that. I am also really excited to get out of Inuvik and have new opportunity elsewhere.
