Valentine's Weekend

Asheville, North Carolina

We headed over Saturday morning and toured the Biltmore.  Next, we explored downtown Asheville...and ended up in a paint your own pottery store (so fun) before heading to dinner at Tupelo Honey Cafe.  It was a great little getaway just soaking up the time we have left, just the two of us.  Oh, how I love my man!!


Unfortunately, Brent was feeling a little under the weather Saturday night and into Sunday....and was whining about a sore throat, stuffy nose and body aches.  His loving and caring wife kept telling him, "you have a cold...you'll be fine, because I just had a cold that lasted about 8 days and I'm eight months pregnant."  Low and behold, Monday morning he went to work and tested positive for the stinking flu--Happy Valentine's to Me!  I thought I had escaped it since I still felt fine on Tuesday (my OB started me on Tamiflu), but the damage was done and on Thursday I was sure I had the flu but it instead was another, worse than before, head cold---the kind I can't breathe through my nose.  Seriously, I've been miserable and don't think I've whined this much my entire life.  Today's the first day I've felt a tad bit better....just in time to start the week!  I seriously hope I can stay well and enjoy this last month of pregnancy (I love being pregnant--just not pregnant with a cold) before we welcome our little boy into this world because there are still a couple things I'd like to get done.

Happy Heart Day

Brent and I celebrated Valentine's this weekend and had such a wonderful time.  I will post pictures soon but I just wanted to recommend the movie Just Go With It (we went on Friday night before heading out of town on Saturday).  Although quite predictable, it's hysterical and the best romantic comedy I've seen in a while.  Brent and I were rolling in the theater!

34 wks

(I do realize this is a horrible picture of me...but I just wanted to keep it real!)

weight gain:  about 20 pounds (and a little more)

maternity clothes:  yes

sleep:   i get up to use the restroom anywhere between 3-5 times at night... then there's the trip to the kitchen for a drink of milk (maybe some bread) every other night...plus just rolling over is taking some effort these days!  between all that it's halfway decent.  still thanking Jesus I can breathe though my nose again!

movement:  less kicks and more stretching and squirming around.  love it. 

food cravings:  still nothing weird or out of the ordinary.

what I miss:  being able to walk without getting out of breath.  going to the tanning bed...kind of strange, but I'm almost translucent and a little sun kissed looked would make me feel so much better!

looking forward to:  meeting this little guy.  brent and I are getting so excited...

Toasting Baby Hardin w/ some tequila shots after the couple's shower last weekend...
