At the moment, I have a terrible cold so I feel like crap. I need to go to the chiro too as my hips, pelvis & low back are all rather achey. I never did get into doing the prenatal yoga this pregnancy like I did last. Maybe there's still time. I'm sure some cat cows would be helpful right about now.
I'm feeling huge, though I've still got 9 1/2 weeks to go. My round ligaments have been tender for awhile now, so when the midwife pokes me a little rough or the baby kicks, sometimes it hurts, which sucks. Ever so often the babe hits a new level of activity and I think she must have just gained a half-pound or so.
Right now I'm mainly scared of the baby wanting to make an early arrival. I haven't really figured out which emergency room accepts my insurance for our backup plan, which I honestly hadn't even though of until just now. I had a baby shower last Saturday, but it was small since this is a second baby, so there wasn't a whole lot that I was depending on from that. I ordered my birth kit yesterday and the homebirth-focused baby book I wanted today, so I feel more prepared now than before. The only things I have left to do are to 1) get more nursing pads; 2) buy a boppy, or request one from friends; 3) get my little sister's dresser from her somehow and sand it and replace the pulls; 4) wash all the clothes and diapers; 5) figure out food for after the birth and snacks & drinks for labor; 6) get my sling from my WAHM friend; 7) get Aleks a gift for when the baby comes and 8) nest. Maybe #8 will get me to accomplish the rest.
Those are all the things that I need to do for the baby's arrival, but there's a million other things that I want to get done before she gets here. I have several projects that I need to finish that have nothing to do with her. Eh - maybe the MDC Cookbook can live without art.
One wonderful recent development is that we're going on vacation at the end of July!!! We haven't been on vacation in years. We're going to stay in a beach house in the Outer Banks for a week with my family. It's going to just be the 8 of us and it will be so nice. DS will love it and I think it sounds so relaxing.
So that's how I am.
