Today's Adventure: Walk, Work and Baby

Today, I went on a walk to the North Hollywood Library to find a book that I know I own but can't find anywhere. Upon further reflection, I'm pretty sure I gave it to my little brother. Upon even further reflection, he probably doesn't have it anymore.

Oh well, the walk was nice. It was a little warm so I made sure I brought some water with me. All in all, it took me about and hour and ten minutes to get there, discover they didn't have the book I wanted, and get back home.

As for work, I've been doing the Terror Tram on Friday nights. The last two weeks I've had the 5:48-1:30 shift, and it's been tiring. It shouldn't be, because the tour is ridiculously modified and short. But it is. We used to do this bit where we pretend to fall asleep while giving the tour, and I thought it was great, because then it wouldn't matter how much I yawned - it's part of the bit! Management later thought that it looked a bit unprofessional, so they nixed it. It is all I can do NOT to yawn on camera!

The baby has been making me very tired lately. The past few days I've taken two-hour naps in the late afternoon, and today I slept in until mumble-o'clock. As far as I was aware, I'm only making fingerprints this week, so I don't know why the baby is taking all my energy! We had an OB appointment last week - we did not find out the baby's gender. However, on Nov 7 we're getting one of those cool 3D/4D sonograms, and by then I will be at 20 weeks (halfway!) so we should be able to see some genitalia! I can't believe I'm almost halfway done with this pregnancy. It has been relatively easy and symptomless, so other than my tummy getting slightly larger and being able to hear the heartbeat (148 beats/minute and going strong!) I almost can't believe I'm pregnant. I should be able to feels kicks and movement any time now. There have been a few times when I thought I felt something, but there's just no way to tell at this point. I don't really know exactly what I should be feeling - I've never done this before!

Today's Adventure: A Lack of Sleep

I didn't sleep at all last night. I can't feel the baby moving yet, but I think the baby was up and moving around. Therefore, my body and brain thought they should be awake, too. I didn't get to take a nap today either. Boo!

But you know, this should work out well because I have a shift at Universal tomorrow night. They were not able to find alternative work for me, so I've been on my "medical leave." During the Halloween Horror Nights there is a Terror Tram, which takes an alternate route that doesn't include Earthquake or the Collapsing Bridge. And I am allowed to work it!

So, good news: I have a shift and I can pretend to be a contributing member of society. Bad news: My shift is like, from 6pm to 130am! Yuck!!

I guess I'll stay up for a few more hours and get SUPER tired, then I'll sleep in late and maybe even take another nap! I know I'll have to get to work extra early to deal with costuming. I'm sure that asking for pants in a size larger is going to be an issue! Wish me luck!

In other news, we have an OB appointment next week, and we might be able to find out the gender of the baby!
