I still can't decide if I should tell people that I'm 4 months pregnant or 5 months pregnant. If I found out that I was pregnant at the end of October then that was my first month, so February would be Month 5. But considering I have 4 months and 1/2 months left, 9 1/2 months seems like too long. But then I was thinking, if we go by weeks and there are 40 weeks, averaging 4 weeks per month, then it does seem to add up to 10 months. So being that I am halfway through my pregnancy, saying that I am 5 months pregnant sounds right. Plus Kristen (my trainee) and I Googled which weeks count as which month after a girl who was 27 weeks pregnant went into labor at a Wendy's (or at least her friend had called 911 saying her water broke), Google says I would be be in my 5th month; for the 18th to 21st weeks. A few of the months end up lasting five weeks.
Enough of that pregnancy math though.. Here is some stuff I/we have done recently:
On January 25th I texted Michael asking if he would be interested in going to some food trucks that sounded good in Winter Garden. (I saw the ad that Sana "liked" on Facebook.) When I walked through downtown Winter Garden in October with my cousin Lindsey, they had food trucks and trailers set up for local bands to play. That is where I assumed it would be, but I Googled the addresses and the food trucks were set up in three different neighborhoods. We went to the two areas closest to us and they were in very nice areas. I would love to live there but Michael guessed the houses cost at least $350,000. I hadn't been to a food truck place in almost five years and if you read the last line of that post you'll see why I may have waited so long, ha! This day was better.
Yesterday I walked with Jackie again (Mia's neighbor when she still lived here. *Let's have a moment of silence about that.*) and we walked two loops around Lake Underhill, also walking to Market on South halfway through, which I thought was a fantastic idea on her part! I wore 1.5 pound weights around my wrists on the way there and switched them to my ankles on the way back. We also walked three miles together on January 27th ~ here is a picture from that morning:
pregnancy announcement post). On January 24th I had walked with Alana, and somehow we went 4.87 miles!! We were both impressed with ourselves. She doesn't like having her picture taken as much anymore, so I took a picture of one of the beautiful Clermont views to remember instead:
this pregnancy calculator, I am still within a healthy weight right now (I'll be 20 weeks tomorrow!!) for my height.
A few days ago I made this handmade journal:
I have not been taking naps for a while (except on the days I work I will usually sleep in my car for 20 minutes on our longer break, but I usually always do that any time I'm on day shift just because I wake up around 4:30am). I had two very detailed dreams on Friday morning and this morning. I tend to have these dreams after I am woken up by Michael getting ready for work. So once I go back to sleep from 6:30am to 8:30am, they get weird. I don't remember having dreams during the night. One was about bad stuff from work.. but luckily I had a nice one about Michael after that. This morning it was a weird one that I don't even know how to describe (we were being forced to do a bunch of challenges in elaborate costumes?) involving a few characters from The 100. My go-to for lunches at home have been consisting of chicken nuggets and garlic bread the past few weeks. Partly because it is cheap and partly because it sounds good!
