34 week update...
•What's happening in your life/hobbies/study/work/cat herding this week?
Nothing happening really, off bedrest for a couple of weeks now, all my cats are doing great! LOL
•How is your family, and how are your friends re your pregnancy?
My family is good, my mom is taking like 3 or 4 days off to be with me, baby, and my 20 month old daughter when I give birth, so that's nice.
•How far along are you?
33 weeks 5 days
•How are you feeling physically and mentally?
Sore, tired, can barely walk really. The SPD is horrid for me. My lower back hurts, my hips hurt, my crotch hurts, and I can't lift my legs to put my pants or underwear on. Sleeping these days is almost out of the question. Rolling over in bed is out of the question. The only comfortable position I can find in life is getting on all fours in my bed with my hips and behind in the air. That seems to relieve the pressure and pain in my hips and pelvis area, at least temporarily.
Had my 34 week appt yesterday! My OB did an NST, which she was happy with, I had an ultrasound, and baby Teyla weighs 5lbs 5oz, and did my 3 hour glucose test, which made me sick, but I'll be damned if I threw up that stuff and had to take that test again, so I kept it down. I was starving due to the 12 hour fast before the test, and after I drank the liquid, I got ill, which made me not want food. I didn't eat until 4pm after not having food or water since 10 the night before. Yeah that went well. At first my OB planned to induce at 39 weeks, which we were fine with, but then yesterday she said she wants to induce at 38 weeks, or as soon as she can, considering the complications i've had and my history. 4 more weeks!! We are sooooo not ready. The only thing that's ready is Teylas bed LOL The other room still has junk in it, I haven't taken Taryn's old clothes out yet and washed them, haven't packed hospital bags, haven't taken Taryn's old bottles out for sterilization yet, and there are a few things I still need to get at the store. We are soooo far behind LOL We have a lot to do in what seems like a short amount of time!
My OB is also in the process of transferring her patients to a new hospital, and we toured the new hospital yesterday. All I have to say is, thank God she still gave us the option of delivering at our old hospital because the new one sucks. The only thing they have going for them is that they have a Level 3 NICU, and our old hospital has a Level 2. This fact won me over before the tour, but that's it.
•Any questions of the rest of the community?
•Something you didn't expect this week?
To be induced at 38 weeks! LOL So excited!
•Something you're thinking through, buying or making for the new little one?
I'm not very crafty, but I was editing my registry the other day, and saw these really cute swaddle blankets for her, and I was really into swaddling DD, all the way to the point where I was trying to swaddle her when she didn't want to be swaddled anymore (around 4 or so months), so I added them!
•Any pics you'd like to share?
I took belly pics with DD all the way from 6 to 40 weeks, and I didn't with this baby. I wish I had though. Sadly I just have one that I took at 7 months.
