So I went to my weekly doctors appointment yesterday and was told that I need to start going on daily walks to speed the process up...Why you might ask? Because I already have a big baby. She is over 8.5 pounds (90th percentile) and if I go to term she will be over 10 pounds...OMG.. I never would have thought I would have such a big baby..My husband and I have started calling her B.K., for Big Kyra. Do not worry, we do not plan on calling her that after she is born. We do not want to give her a complex. :)

In the office today

I am in the office today because I need to learn how to setup client projectcodes under the new peoplesoft system. What a gigantic waste of my time. It literally takes weeks for us to set up these stupid codes so that we can bill our clients. Seems like my company should hire a few people to set up these codes as their daily jobs. Ugh, just mad that I have to waste hours upon hours (on top of my client work) just trying to bill for work I completed weeks ago.....

Another Day Another Doctor Appointment

I am at that time where I have to go to the doctor every single week. The office I go to rotates between four doctors. Two are super nice and two are not so nice. My track record is that I typically get the not so nice doctors. I just hope that when I actually go to the hospital to deliver I get one of the nice doctors..Wish me luck, haha.

Working From Home

I am currently working from home in anticipation of my due date. Theoretically our little girl could arrive at anytime. And given that there is an insane amount of traffic and construction between the hospital and my workplace, I think it is wise for me to work from home. Anyway, it is strange to work in the silence of my house all day. No co-workers popping into my office to ask random questions and harass me about the Brewers not making it to the world series. Sure, I am getting more work done..But I think I miss the social aspects of the workplace already haha.

Internal Alarm Clock

I stayed up entirely too late last night watching the Packer game. I am so happy that they came back to win the game! In fact, it was a great day for Wisconsin sports fans, as both the Packers and the Brewers won!I like seeing small markets win major games!Anyway, the late night of sports watching took a toll on me. I would've slept in this morning because I forgot to set my alarm clock, but the baby starting kicking me right when I needed to get up. I guess you could say I used an internal alarm clock this morning ha-ha. :)

Paralysis Due to the Unknown

No, I am not talking about having a little girl in a few weeks..Though this title likely applies to that situation as well...

Sometimes I get overwhelmed by a project if it is something that I have never done before. As I blogged about last week, I had over a week to draft a specific plan document, but kept procrastinating due to my inexperience with this particular task. The funny part is that I should know better than to procrastinate and freak out about a first time task. Once I outline the design of a plan or a document, the pieces almost always fall into place and I am able to draft something. I guess its a lesson I learn every few months. Basically do not let fear of the unknown paralyze you. I need to remember to be confident in my abilities and to simply outline and thoroughly analyze a project, and that everything will likely work out for the best. :)
