As I sit here basking in all of the cute new maternity clothes I got today, I finally catch up on the last 2 days worth of blogs I missed and my heart just breaks. On one end, a friends husband is deploying and on another a friend has no clue when her husband will deploy. Could be months from now, could be sooner. I hate that. I read these blogs and it brings tears to my eyes. I know that pain. I know how hard it is to deal with the pre deployment blues and wonder how the heck I am going to do it. I know the panic of thinking about a deployment that is most likely months away. I hated all of those feelings and I hate that my friends are feeling them.
I'm not going to lie, for a while shore duty proved to not be much different than sea duty minus him going underway and getting deployed. He still was at work until 4 and for a while he was coming home and having to do more work here, too. NOW, well, for the next couple of months, he is going to work at 2 and getting home no later than 8. It's crazy. I'm sitting here thinking... How on earth could the people that only work a few hours a day get paid the same as people that work 14 hours a day? Not that I'm complaining, it just racks my brain.
On to the exciting baby stuff! Baby D's heart rate peaked at 152 on Friday! I don't feel pregnant anymore. I feel so good that I have a hard time believing I am still pregnant. The only reason I know I am is because of that healthy heartbeat and because of my ever growing belly :) I have pretty much nothing to complain about anymore and I am loving it!
I will leave you with this picture of the clothes I got today! 4 shirts/dresses, 2 pairs of leggings and a pair of boots for just under $100!
Also, I am 14 weeks and 4 days today :) (actually I am TECHNICALLY 14 weeks and 5 days since it's midnight, lol)
