School started yesterday, it's really not been bad so far. I mean, how bad can it be in 2 days, haha. Yesterday, I had a total of 175 students! The most I've ever had is 147 but each teacher was given a homeroom class this year so that adds to my class load. Luckily, homeroom is not a structured class. Basically the kids are supposed to read or do homework for 30 minutes. We are also on a new school schedule this year. We went from starting at 7:45 to starting at 8:55. This means that we don't go to lunch until ALMOST 1:00! You do know that I'm pregnant, right? 1:00 is a LONG time. So, I have to eat a morning snack and today, I had 2 snacks! I bought some fiber bars because I thought they might keep me full longer. I've also been "sneaking" powerade from the fountain in the cafeteria. My only real complaint is that my back is KILLING me. So there have been a few times I've pulled my chair to the front of my room and given instructions from there. I also have a nasty cold right now so that's not helping.
In other news, I go to my next U/S on Friday. I'm excited but mostly nervous. I pray CONSTANTLY for this baby and I'm pretty sure I've been feeling it flutter around. It's not often but does happen a lot if I drink Caffeine. I read online that some people feel this as early as 11 weeks and I am almost 13 weeks so I do think that's what it is. It makes me happy to be able to feel it because I feel like it's ok. After this ultrasound I am definitely going to have to come to terms with the fact that I am pregnant. Not that I'm not thrilled it's just that I've only ever known having ONE child. It seems impossible to wrap my head around the fact that I'm going to have TWO! I'm overjoyed and feel truly blessed to be having another baby. I will just be happy to not worry anymore! The sickness has all but subsided and the exhaustion seems to be gone as well. Sometimes I still have heartburn but other than that I feel pretty good.
