It's been 10 days...

I got my flu shot yesterday at work... I really don't mind shots at all, needles, blood, etc. I'm thinking this injector guy was not a trained professional though! He stuck me... then syringed it all in me, I felt the injection sight spasm a little and he pulled out the needle.

"ooh, you're a bleeder!" he grabbed me some cotton, stuck a band-aid on me and I was on my way.

It wasn't sore at all, then I woke up in the middle of the night to do a prego pee run and felt like my left shoulder/arm had been hit by 100 fast pitched baseballs. (haha, nice comparison right?). Everytime time I moved my muscles in the arm, even wiggling my fingers would bring on a wave of pain. All day, it's been crazy painful when I move my arm, the pain is primarily in my elbow - and it felt like a string of pain connected my elbow to pinky/ring finger. Anyway... blasted flu shot, must have hit a nerve.

Last weekend went by way to fast! We babysat nephew Preston while his parents went on their first date since his birth in July.... He was incredibly easy to watch over... and we got to go out to eat and he slept through the whole thing. Seth's great at bottle feeding/burping a baby... we need to babysit more to get the practice in.

Saturday I went up to SLC to meet a friend for lunch at Mimi's Cafe (mmmm). Gates , from the mission, is so kind and brought me flowers for my birthday (this Friday). I love that lunch date and not so much the traffic on the way back to Provo. It wasn't as bad as I expected though. Seth and I went with friends to the BYU/Florida state game. . . I don't want to talk about it. We left at the beginning of the 4th quarter... call us poor sports, or poor losers or whatever you'd like - but I did not want to sit there on my Saturday night and be humbled more. BYU did not play well at all that game. FSU definitely deserved that high scored game win based on BYU's performance, sickening.

I hope we do much better against Colorado this Saturday...

The kid is good... I'm trying to drink my water... we find out on October 15th if it's a little guy or girl. It's all really going fairly quickily (the pregnancy) I'm 17 wks in two days... but I feel like I've been 16 weeks for the last 3 weeks. I just need to keep focused on the Football season/beautiful fall, thanksgiving, Christmas... (moving) and then really getting ready for the kid to come! It'll fly by, right? :)


  1. The flu shot is just mean! the same thing happens to me every time i get a flu shot, it hurts like crazy!!!! its hard to sleep and move lol, well both times i got a flu shot i was preggo but it was awful like that both times.... im debating on whether or not to get one this winter. Dont you get to do ultrasounds frequently at work?? i bet you could tell what the baby is by now, maybe next week, lol you should just do it :D

  2. Sorry about the shot! I had some pretty bad ones too when we were doing IVF. In fact, my hips are still sore three months later! I hope it goes away eventually (I think the daily shots must have done some nerve damage!). I'm so excited that we are pregnant together! We find out if we're having a boy/girl on Oct. 16th, so a day after you!
