DISCLAIMER ALERT: I do comment about LOST & Survivor in this post so if you did not watch it and plan to watch it at a later date you may not want to read this. There are only a few details and I do not think I give away too much but still...
TWENTY SIX WEEKS! OMG, okay I totally know it happened and when but wow. When Liz, the midwife, said the number of weeks on Wednesday morning I kind of took a deeper breath and swallowed a lump in my throat. The crazier part of this - last week and into the weekend I felt like h-e-double hockey sticks. I thought my pelvis was going to crack in two, I could hardly walk. If I stood and walked a lot the ligaments in my lower right abdomen (mostly) screamed at me to STOP. I was alternately swollen and hot even in the 50 degree weather on Saturday. I was exhausted and could hardly move around while lying in bed. However, suddenly, the past few days I have felt awesome. I jogged on the tread mill. Twice this week! For 20 minutes! Last week I tried and was almost sobbing after a minute. I know the pain & swelling is not gone for good but it feels great to have a reprieve from it for a few days!
Nothing exciting to report after the appointment. Miss Pancake (if you will ;) was rockin' the perfect heart beat while punching/kicking at the monitor the whole time. I asked about the due date and Liz said they did adjust it slightly from the ultrasound with that whole +/- a week thing. Given my past pregnancy I will probably be late and should think about inducing sooner then last time if I ended up being later then a week or so. We shall see... I get to do the glucose test in two weeks - YEAH! Trying to be positive here, people!
(no segue way here...)
Aren't you glad it is Friday? I sure am! It has been a lovely week in B-town. Sunshine and warm temps. A bit of rain but we are back at it this morning with more of the sun and warmer temps. Gotta love that.
By the way, have I mentioned recently that we still have no name for this child? Is she doomed to be call Baby Girl or Miss Pancake the rest of her life? I suppose there are worse names right? I have this feeling we will end up with a top five name again just because those are the names we like and we cannot seem to come to a decision on other names. I am sure it will be just a dandy name no matter what we decide or at least that I is what I keep telling myself! A report on NPR said that what you name your child can directly result in his/her success in life... NO pressure right?! Weeee...
Did I mention I had a dream that Arnold Schwarzenegger helped to birth not only my child but Kelly's baby too? And it was not like the Governator Arnold who helped but old school ARRR-nold who did it? Except he was not wearing camo and holding guns but he was wearing a suit and tie... He was just talking like Arnold from the movies... Hey at least I had a good chuckle in the morning. My dreams with Matthew were mostly dark brooding things that I would have been embarrassed to write about!? So Kelly, if you see a large Austrian man wandering around at any point during your pregnancy - WATCH OUT, your baby is on the way!!
Did you like the guest writer? He got a bee in his bonnet the other night and then he could not stop. He kept saying I should blog about this or that the WHOLE night.
I really suck at posting photos. I also meant to write a blog on Matthew's birthday and show past photos from his 1st & 2nd birthday. But I ran out of time and energy. Theme of my life at the moment. Well I had enough energy to eat dessert every night this week. OH speaking of that, I looked back and I actually lost a pound at this last appointment?! Weird! I think I was just really blotted last time and I had on huge heavy shoes because it was still cool outside so I think that is where the lose occurred. Not so much that my actual weight is decreasing.
SO did anyone else watch Lost last night? I was actually underwhelmed for once. I was like how on earth did Sawyer escape the bullets (by hiding behind a picnic table no less) when the dudes with guns managed to shoot three other people dead on? And the whole Morse code thing? Just not that thrilled by it. I hope it gets better. Even Survivor kind of bored me last night. What is with these people? Use the idols! What the heck?
Any who, before I bore you all to tears (even though I can think of 900 other stupid things to share) I will go. Have a sunny and (hopefully) warm weekend!
