30 weeks is here! Our original goal date of March 10th has come and gone and Catriona is still hanging in there, though she is making her requests to join us a little more firm every day. Over the last week she has dropped, and landed squarely on my bladder, so every step I take now makes me need to use the bathroom…. I should buy stock in Charmin. I am home from work until Catriona does decide to show up at this point. Between the late fusion, infection, and now constant hormone induced migraines I am currently spending more time lying down than I have in years. The medication I am taking to control the migraines (which were raising my blood pressure to dangerous levels) knocks me out. I think I may have actually caught up on sleep from the last two years… I am sure I will miss all this extra sleep in a few months.
I passed my glucose test! Which I celebrated by eating a half of a bag of Jelly Beans…
It is so hard to stop once you get started.
So I hang out at home, with the kiddos for company, and an awesome support system helping me pick up the slack. Thanks to the internet I have yet to become bored, and have managed (finally, today) to finish ordering the last of the things we needed to get before Catriona arrives. We are now fully stocked on a starting supply of diapers, creams, clothing, shampoos, bottles, blanket, and anything else you can imagine. The list has been quadruple checked and I am fairly confident I have managed to not forget anything this time around! My next project is to stock the freezer full of pre-planned and prepared (as much as possible) crock pot meals to make the upcoming months easier. I am also taking the opportunity to update my MDS and RAC certifications, because I really don’t want to get bored. School is on break until late September when I start my MS in Healthcare Administration, but I don’t want to get out of practice with studying… and also, after 12 years of college, I am pretty sure I just don’t know how to stop! The next check up is in two weeks. We will be keeping our fingers crossed for an uneventful two weeks!
