Ya gotta do whacha gotta do
Ok, so being pregnant has been a breeze... until Monday. I had gone to a picnic with Jason and my sis-in-law and her family, then we went to the pool, then we went to Pizza Street and by that time, I was soooo exhausted, I was ready to be home! Well, I got home and was sooooooo sick! Monday was no comparison to Tuesday, though. All day at work I was miserable and actually took a 15 minute nap on the floor because I had no energy. And that was about all the sleep I got. When I got home, I crashed on the couch but was constantly running to the bathroom. Anyways, after attempting to sleep on the bathroon floor all night, the next morning wasn't any better and all I could do was cry to make myself feel better. So, Jason called my father-in-law to take me to the hospital where I was admitted for Gastrointeritis (?). I was on IV fluids for over 4 hours and given anti-nausea meds. I realized then why people hate the hospital so much. I was there by myself for the better part of the 5 hours and it sucked! I did have an awesome nurse, but she couldn't be there for me the whole time. I was so happy to see Jason walk through the door at 5:15. The best thing (beside me feeling about 1000% better) was that Jason got to hear the heartbeat for the first time and he was amazed! The whole time I've been pregnant, we struggled with the idea of this being real because we really haven't had anything confirm it besides the preggo test. I can't WAIT for our first ultrasound to see our little peanut!!!!! We are super stoked!!!!
Throughout my late adolescense and adulthood, I have had many positions (professionally and volunteer basis) that have helped me develop skills necessary to serve as a liaison to the community on behalf of a professional organization. I have spent many years in various organizations which have helped me grow skills such as public speaking, note taking, and scheduling. I am proficient in organization and mediation – always keeping the mindset of finding middle ground and while meeting the needs of those involved. I excel in the area of community outreach and thrive in situations where I am given reign to be creative and managerial. I am committed to achieving the best outcome and feel I have many fantastic qualities to contribute to any organization.
