Well, here we are, another week gone without my posting. And another week milestone in this pregnancy. 30 Weeks. Wow. And yay for me and my boys!
I am doing well. Still working half days. Still resting in the afternoons. Sort of.
I sleep better some nights than others (general insomnia, but also hip pain, potty breaks, heartburn). I am usually fine all day. This week, I had swollen ankles two nights and I've been having some nausea in the middle of the night and also first thing in the morning. I still haven't puked! But I don't like to wake up that way. The good thing about the sleep issues is that it hasn't really made me more tired. I may be irritated or crying out in pain, but I eventually do get back to sleep and I never do seem to feel tired the next day.
I am beginning to fear that the movements I 'thought' were baby stretches are actually B&H contractions, or worse, the real thing. I read about symptoms very similar to mine on another friend's blog, and am now going to pay more attention to them. Maybe even keep track of how often.
This week, I was a manic pregnant woman with baby errands. After my second shower last weekend, I made a list of the 'recommended' supplies versus what we had received and became determined to fill in the gaps. Thankfully, I had received gift cards to cover most all of these items. I maybe only spent $200 of our own money, which I thought was wonderful.
I don't even want to admit how many times I went to BRU figuring out the 'perfect' bedding configuration for the nursery (mattress pad? sheet saver? ultimate sheet saver? etc.). I've either experienced a shift in hormones or worn myself down, because the errands remaining on my list don't seem quite as pressing as they did earlier in the week. If I could just find the 'right' window covering and lampshade, I could finally share a pic of the nursery. Maybe next week...
My goal for this weekend is to finish making and writing thank you's from last week's shower, to get batteries for our various baby electronics (swings, monitor, etc.) and to finish up washing their clothes. Oh, and I need to work like 5 hours tomorrow because I have been a slacker this week and spent my afternoons obsessing about baby stuff rather than actual work.
