It’s a bit lonely at home without my lovely husband. However, I’m blessed with amazing friends who keep me company. They all invite me for dinners, so I don’t get time left to eat my own food in the fridge.
Sergey is doing great! He is a very strong and smart man. It’s difficult to be far away, all by yourself, in a new environment, and starting a new job. But he is rocking it! I love him very much!
After long days of sitting/standing I notice some veins appear more pronounced left of my right knee. Don’t like what I see! I bought some special tight socks but they don’t go as high as I’d want them to. Raising my feet up helps but sitting/standing for long periods doesn’t. I will need to do my best to keep my feet up. Sleeping on my right side no longer works. My right leg and eventually whole side just falls asleep/goes numb. This also may contribute some to my right knee vein issue. Sleeping on the left side from now on.
Sergey came home for the weekend and we had a lot going on. First, Sergey and I took a new parent class to learn how to swaddle and take care of our little one. Then, we held a super successful birthday party for me. We had a lot of friends and had just a wonderful time. The food was gone in minutes, perhaps everyone came really hungry. So even after the cake we still cooked up more potatoes, got out vodka and pickled tomatoes and cucumbers. That too was gone within minutes! Ha! But we all had a wonderful time. Later, we danced. Almagul and I repeated our belly dance from the day Sergey and I first met. Not bad for doing it after 3 years, both getting married, and despite both being pregnant. After that everyone danced their feet off. Fun!
On Sunday, Dima came by and we took some pregnancy photos! But when we got them back, we decided to do some more on our own. Here is a mix of Dima’s and our photos.
