It was decades day at school on Friday, so I grabbed a dress that fit, threw on some accessories that might make it look like one of those decades and went with it. My pictures this week happen to be from Friday. Also, I was talking to John on the phone while taking pictures using the self-timer on my camera:)
Some things from 29 wks...
I was sure I gained weight because over spring break I ate a lot...but then a day and a half before my dr. apt. I got a stomach bug and puked a bunch and couldn't eat for a day. The worst part about it was that I did not know I was sick (because I feel nauseous all the time anyway) until it was almost too late. I asked John to get me a bucket and 10 min. later I needed it.
So...at my appointment, they told me I didn't gain any weight. They were disappointed because it had been a month and a half since I had gained any weight. The good thing is that my belly measurements were right on. I measured at 30 wks. Also the baby's heartbeat was strong and sounded great. My midwife scheduled an ultrasound for my next apt. (April 22) just to make sure things look good and baby is getting enough food. In the meantime I am trying to eat more snacks, eat before bed and eat more protein rich foods. The problem is that I am nauseous a lot of the time which makes food sound gross. I have always LOVED food. If this nausea could be the next diet fad it would totally work.
70 days until baby is due! 6 weeks of school left until summer. A week and a day until childbirth classes start (I can't wait to tour the hospital). A week and a half until my work baby shower.
I was freaking out when my blog counter hit 100 days and I had almost nothing ready. Now I feel like I have some of the big things crossed off my list. Besides getting some big items for baby (car seat, stroller, crib, changing table, rocker) I also finished a few other things:
-taxes (I know I am running late this year...but they are done!)
-finding a doctor for baby. I decided on a highly recommended family practice doctor that works at the clinic both John and I go to
-finding someone to watch baby during John and I's overlap working period
-getting a few more answers about prices of baby insurance. How much are other people paying for baby insurance?
-finding out my midwife practices policy on going past my due date
-finding free breastfeeding classes/clinics for before or after baby is born
-updated my registry some
Last but not least...I love my husband.
He was awesome when I was sick, he kisses the baby in my tummy a lot, and when I forgot to spray the Belgian waffle maker before putting in the blueberry waffle mix which caused me to burn the eggs and some of the bacon...he took the plate of scrapped off pieces of waffle and said "perfect, I hate cutting up my waffles anyway- it is already cut up" He also gobbled up the eggs and bacon and said they were great:)
