When the rubber meets the road...

I have mentioned before that this quarter my French class is kicking my behind. Tomorrow is my last test of the quarter before the final and I am dreading it!

Anyone have any tips about learning sentence structures for direct and in-direct pronouns?

I have a long afternoon and evening ahead as I try and make this stick. Prayers very much appreciated.

I am committed to finishing this quarter strong. But it's not going to be easy, when I just want to take a nap!

As far as pregnancy stuff goes, I am feeling so much better over all. The lack of nausea and lessened fatigue continues to be such a game-changer. I haven't had a headache in a few weeks and now with my strange butt pain vanished too I am beginning to feel a glow coming on, finally!

I am still eating so much. I know I had not gained more than a pound or two in the first trimester but I am sure when I go to the doctor for a regular check up on Thursday she will see many more additional lb's! ha ha

I am feeling this kid move ALL.THE.TIME. at the moment. I thought it would be a long time from the initial flutter to the more distinct punches or kick but clearly this child is already advanced for their age (ha ha!) because he/she is very physical already. The other night J was using the little handheld doppler we have to hear the heartbeat and he pushed down quite hard on my belly at which time little buggy responded with a very firm push back! It was so special to see J's reaction. He/she gave one more shove to daddy's hand before setting down for the night. I was unprepared for that event to happen so soon. I am not sure if that will be a one off for a while now but I am slightly nervous about what lies ahead as this little one only gets bigger and stronger!

I have certainly hit the point of no return as far as being able to wear non-maternity clothes. I think the situation is exaggerated because as a long torso-ed lady to begin with finding tops and shirts which were long enough was already a challenge, and adding in the smallest of bumps began to make them show some mid drift at this point, I imagine I would look down right obscene!

As the weather gets more spring like, and this 'glowing' season continues I hope I will be able to get out more and get the blood flowing. I have begun to feel slightly potato-like, especially as my bump is rounding me out from the front, so the sunshine streaming through the windows is a welcome sight. (Only slightly overshadowed by the snow on the rooftops and in my garden this morning. I heard a rumor the snow was a one off and the sunshine is here to stay but I'll believe it when I see it.)

Ok, off to get something to eat, and to get my study on!
