The Complete Egg

The before, during and after of a molar pregnancy, with a side of chemo and a 12 month wait before ttc. And most recently: experience of a healthy pregnancy.

Happy birthday to me!

Woops - this was suppose to have the date February 10th, ....oh well.

I haven't written in a long time. I've been working so hard at school. I ask myself why. Why am I working so hard?? I resolve to work less. The harder I work, the crankier I get and it's not a good way to be.

I can't believe it's February. I had a great birthday weekend. I went shopping for a couple of new maternity tops. Then, Malcolm and I went out for a nice dinner last night and went to "Persepolis". What an incredible film. I'm still thinking about it. Today we had brunch with family. My mom cooked a yummy meal. My mom and I made plans to goi to go next weekend and start buying a few things for baby. I found a good consignment store in North Van and I think I can get a bunch of things there. I'm leaving Malcolm in charge of the crib and car seat. I want to find most things before I'm on maternity leave because the month before the baby comes, I want to relax. I see that as a time for going for walks, gardening, massages, spa days. Having no errands to run.

I have to go to bed soon. I am feeling somewhat claustraphobic about all of the routines in my life. Maybe I'm just sick of commuting. I'm tired of making my lunch and going to bed by 9pm. I'm tired of the students' petty arguments. I'm probably still tired from last week which was a very draining week. Now this week is Valentine's day. Ugh. Mostly, I do enjoy teaching. I think that this time of the year can be hard because it's dark and cold and rainy and there are not any holidays.

I am grateful for all that I have. I especially appreciate my fantastic husband. I love you so much sweetie. I'm glad we met and realized what we had found. Thank you for a great birthday weekend.
