Hubby got a sweet grill light for his bday.
Those are pork tenderloins, not small rodents as they may appear.
We had a bit of a scare with baby bean on Friday. I was walking the dogs when I got caught in a torrential downpour. We started running home and I tripped over one of the dogs when they stopped to shake off the rain and fell right on my belly. I called hubby and he quickly left work, picked me up and we headed to the hospital. Turns out everyone was fine. Baby was showing a solid heartbeat and I was fine as well- just some scrapes on my knees, wrists and belly. After monitoring us for several hours they let us go home. I was having contractions, which is why they were a little concerned…but turns out they were just the same kind of light contractions I’ve been having for several weeks- I can feel them but they’re not painful…I didn’t actually know they were contractions…just thought they were baby turning sideways or something. They did bloodwork to make sure the placenta didn’t detach and all that came back fine and I wasn’t bleeding, nor was my cervix dilating any further than it was when we got there. So, aside from being a bit sore and using a LOT of neosporin this weekend (the knee scrapes are actually the most painful), all is well…and we’re so glad baby is ok!
In other news, we reached 38 weeks this weekend and I’m ready for baby to get here. He’s definitely pressing more on my bladder which makes standing and riding in the car uncomfortable. I’m still dealing with swelling, although that’s been a bit better for the past few days. I also feel nauseous pretty much all the time, but I’m still pretty much always hungry…so I’m eating but not really enjoying any food. My hips are sore….yada yada yada. What I’m saying is, baby can come any time 🙂
We have our 38 week appt on Tuesday!
