Bad idea

I don't know why I ever thought having a BBQ at 33 weeks pregnant was a good idea. It hasn't started yet and my back hurts, ankles are swollen and I can't even enjoy any of the alcohol. Need to remember this for next time.

  • I know how you feel! I went to a happy hour yesterday, couldn't imbibe, felt starving, and came home with huge cankles. I still think my LO is worth it though! I recommend a fun fruit juice mixed with club soda in a margarita glass. It's definitely not the same but is way more fun than water!

  • I'm only 30wks, but laughed at my DH for inviting my daughter's friend's family over this evening. One family is ok, but then he asked who else should be invited, and should we have them for dinner... It's not like he would clean the house to the extent I would, so I told him one family was enough, and I'm sure it will be enough to host dessert and drinks!

  • Yeah I'm not hosting ANYTHING until after the baby has arrived, and even a little bit after that. One it's about 117 where I live, and the idea of doing anything besides staying cool doesn't sound alluring AT ALL! At least enjoy some delish BBQ foods!

  • Ugh, I hope you feel better and can get some rest!

    SO asked if I would go to the state fair if it was a nice day. Had to burst out laughing considering it opens about 2 weeks before my due date. I have to wear compression socks and I'm so swollen that from the ankles down, I seriously look like Fred Flintstone... I know I could do it if I took a lot of breaks and went slow but I just don't want to!
  • Awww. That stinks. Can you blend up some virgin margaritas? I'm enjoying a fabulous virgin strawberry margarita right now and I'm in heaven!
  • I feel ya. I hosted Fourth of July at my house and by the end of the day I felt like I had been hit by a bus.
