I PROMISE!!! As much as I can, I am resting.
I have NOT cooked dinner at all this week. :) Tonight DH even said he was sick of PB&J and "whatever." So I told him to get to the store. I need to make a list so maybe we can all go. I'm really into this "as a family" thing right now b/c I know that 2 weeks from now, it won't be just the 3 of us anymore.
I ended up at the doctor's office today b/c of these spells I've been having. I am fine as is baby. We can't figure out what's causing them either. Last night, my friend came over here at 1015 to check my blood sugar b/c I was having another spell (I had 2 yesterday evening). And my blood sugar was perfect as was my pulse (this friend is a post partum nurse). I had one tonight and then had an attack and had to get to the restroom ASAP...if ya know what I mean. Been fine ever since. Doctor told me to come back the early part of next week if I keep having these so we'll see. My next scheduled appt is on the 17th. AT that point, I am going to tell her I want to be done working effective the 20th. So I have to make it through one more week and I am DONE for 12. I can't wait.
I'm cutting my work days down too. I usually work 10.5 hours on Monday and Tuesday, but this week I am going to work on Sunday 4-6 hours (haven't decided yet) so that Monday and Tuesday can be 8-8.5 hour days. That may seem normal to most people, but those long days are KILLING me. I get so tired in the afternoon then I just lay on the couch when it comes time for dinner. SO I am hoping working on Sunday will help me out. Plus we don't have any plans for Sunday, so I can work in the morning and then take a nice long nap in the afternoon. It's nice b/c baby's room is done, my bag is packed....I can sit back and relax. I LOVE it!
Come Sunday I will be 37 weeks and then this baby can come whenever it wants to. If he/she comes before that it has the potential to spend some time in the NICU b/c of the gestational age and we don't want that. I was doing the math on the way to the doctor earlier today. As of last Friday, baby weighed 7.10. And at this point in the game, they gain roughly a half a pound a week. So this Friday, baby weighs 8.2....next week 8.10...and the week of delivery we're looking at 9.2. Holy cow! But hey, if I'm going to have a 9# baby, I want it to be 9.2. My sister weighed 9-1.5, so if I'm going to have a 9# baby I want to at least beat the family record! :) LOL!!!
I think that's it for me tonight. I'm heading to bed ASAP. I'll check in this weekend. I'll try to check in as often as I can now so no one freaks out if they don't hear from me for a few days. :)
