To say, I'm doing well and a "happy camper" would be a little stretch..... this week I have felt even more limited by the swelling.... it's soo limiting and uncomfortable by the evening! But I have still remained busy in (and out) the house taking care of the family and the house.
Each night I have spent time cleaning and tidying "just in case"!! So my house is probably cleaner than normal.... at least it seems like it to me:) And my laundry has been caught up and manageable (why does it seem easier now??).
Emotional, too!!! I'm not sure why I'm letting little things really get under my skin? isn't that supposed to come AFTER the baby comes???
My sleeping has changed the last week or two.... while preggo ladies are KNOWN for all the pillows stacked around them, I have actually started to use less!! I have one for my legs and one for my head.... LOL!!! My belly hs gotten soo big that I don't need the support anymore and I've been having a less problems with ligaments..... gooo figure:)
I've been commenting that Nate is really moving around now. His movements are still (usually) very calm but more and more obvious and strong. In fact there have been times when I thought I was having contractions but it was just Nate pushing in a few different directions!
He also has been getting the hiccups more. I've actually noticed that he gets them when I haven't eaten or drank for a while (just busy with the kdis) . He's my little "alarm clock" saying,"Mommy it's time to drink something!"
I think I've mentioned our birthday pattern on the blog before... but all of our birthdays are in the last part of certain months. Like this!
- 24th - Me
- 25th - Chris
- 26th - Lydia
- 27th - Anna
- 28th - Brian
Anna and Chris were both due in the following month but came days earlier at the end of the previous month. Like Anna, she was due in early June, but came 5 days early on May 27th :) Lydia was the exception.... she was due in the middle of the month but then was a week late, we could have induced a day earlier, but we didn't want to induce and wanted to give her one more day to come on her own:)
So..... if Nate is following the "pattern"... LOL!! He should have come TODAY (the 23rd) or next Thursday (the 29th)!!! LOL!!!! Honestly, it would be fun if he did "fit" the pattern... but I'll take ANY day now:)
