So I’ve been saying that I don’t have much to complain about with this pregnancy. Not so true anymore. I’m in major pain with severe round ligament pain or something else. It’s been really bad this past week to the point I’m afraid to get up to go to the bathroom. Walking up and down the stairs is torture. I can’t even move around in bed without getting hit with the stabbing pain. I’m so ready to have this baby. 39 weeks can’t come quickly enough.
I had my 36 weeks appointment this morning and Dr. new did some measurements on Mark. He’s about 6.5 lbs. now and Dr. New is predicting that he’ll be a little over 8 lbs. at 40 weeks. Please get him out before he reaches 8 lbs.! We are scheduling for induction on the 3rd. Dr. New also remarked that his one has a big noggin – just like his big bro Matty.
Other than the ligament pains, everything else is fine – Mark is healthy. His heartbeat is at 150bpm and is looking good. My weight is at 162 (Yikes!). My goal this weekend Is to get my hospital bag packed and all baby clothes washed. I have to get his “going home” outfit embroidered with his name on it. I’m hoping to get it done this week.
It’s starting to feel a lot more like fall here lately! It rained last weekend and last night. Glorious, cooling rain! It was so nice to sit around the house, and watch the water coming down. Our lawn and trees definitely need it.
Our house is starting to look a lot like fall too. I’ve got my fall wreath up, my mantle decorated, and have different fall décor throughout the house. Blame it on the nesting. It’s a shame that all this will have to go down after Thanksgiving to make room for Christmas. Which reminds me – I need to go buy that Christmas tree from Costco before it sells out! That’s another “to do” this weekend.
I’ve decided to go with a big artificial tree for the living room and a smaller real one for our family room. Yes, it sounds a little much, but I can’t forgo the real tree smell. This way, they kids can make and hang whatever ornaments on the tree in the family room, and I can decorate the living room tree with fancy color themed goodness. It’s the best of both worlds!
