Halfway there! I'm now at the twenty week mark. I'm pretty convinced that Olivia Kate is going to come before September 21 so I am really hoping that I am already over the half way point. My little girl so far is huge compared to the books & chart measurements. Two weeks ago she was measuring at 9 ounces and by book standards she should have been 5-7 ounces. I am pretty sure she is already weighing 1 pound. Believe it or not at my last appointment I had only gained 12 lbs. But, I do have an appointment tomorrow and I'm dreading to have myself weighed. I have been really hungry lately and feel like I can't fill up. We'll see...

In other updates, I have already failed at my 30 day challenge. Technically, I didn't even make it a week. I did get an approval from the hubby to buy something for myself, so maybe it is justified. It hit me last week that we are going in vacation in one month and I did not have a bathing suit to wear. So I started checking out the maternity bathing suits online. I refuse to pay a lot for a bathing suit so I checked out my usual target and old navy. All the bathing suits on the target website got bad reviews for not holding up, so I was weary of buying one from there. So I headed over to old navy to find they had recently started selling there maternity bathing suits, plus they were on sale. Since the maternity clothes on old sell out instantly, I got the blessing to go ahead and buy one. Actually, I don't think he really wanted to listen to me in a few weeks crying because I can't find a swimsuit. I actually bought two of each because I wasn't sure what size I would need, so I'll keep two and send two back.

Then on Saturday I went to buy a Mother's Day gift for my mother-in-law and bought a bag for myself and Olivia. So, I failed. Plus, we haven't done so well on the out to eat problem. We went grocery shopping and bought groceries for the week. Sure enough, we went out to eat with some friends tonight. We will definitely eating at home the remainder of the week.

This past Saturday I was invited to a girls day with some of my family. We had plans to go to a tea room on the north side of town, but for some reason that did not pan out. Instead, we headed to Gabriel's. WOW is all I could say. This place was amazing! The owner is the cousin of the famous Paula Dean. You really come for the desserts, but the food was good also. They serve a daily special which is made up of southern foods and a deli with sandwiches, soups, & salads. Of course, I went all out and went for the southern goodness. I had the country fried steak, mashed potatoes, fried okra, and cornbread. And I enjoyed every bite. It was all delicious. Then to top it off my cousin Kyndall and I spilt a huge piece of red velvet cake. It was the moistest cake I have ever tasted. I thought the red velvet was yummy until I got a bite of the Strawberry cake I brought home for David. It was seriously to die for. I have been craving a piece ever since we finished it off. It's my new favorite. I should have taken a picture of it, but it didn't last long enough.

A couple of weeks ago, my supervisor asked me if I would start working full time now that I wasn't taking classes. I told him I had to think about it. I went in the next day and told him that no I didn't want to work full time and he could give my position up to someone else who can physically do my job. Of course, I couldn't get out that easily, he told me to just work whenever I wanted and that he had plenty of office work for me to do. But, David and I have talked about it the past couple of weeks and we're both ready for me to leave. If I stay any longer, then they will always have some reason for why they need me to stay even longer and eventually I will end up in labor at the warehouse. I want to take some time off for myself before Olivia comes and have some time with David also. So, I told them today that June 5th is my last day. We're leaving for vacation that next week so I figured it would be easier for me to leave with other things on my mind. Surprisingly, he didn't give me a hard time and just said ok. Either that means he realizes I really am ready to go or he thinks he can talk me into staying between now and then. But this time I really am ready to leave. Plus, I don't think I'm going to make it this summer. I am already tired enough working 1/2 days.
