Re: ~~~Friday Ticker Check-in~~~

  • Weeks/Fruit size: 31 weeks, pineappleRants / raves:  I had been very uncomfortable but after doing the daily exercises on spinningbabies, I feel sooo much better.  My exercise ball is coming today and I'm planning to sit on that all the time vs. the couch.  I even convinced DH to help me with some of the exercises, he has been really great.Next appointment / type: Next Thursday.  Just a normal appointment other than the colposcopy because of my abnormal Pap at 12 weeks. Fun stuff.What are you doing to keep cool? Staying inside! The base pool opens on the weekends so I'm planning to float around in there today.

    Things left on your to do list: Baby shower is on the 30th so I'm waiting to wash clothes until after that and see what we still "need" then order the rest off Amazon, finish the quilt I've been working on, and pack my hospital bag.  Everything else is pretty much done!

  • Better late than never! Geeked

    Weeks/Fruit size: 30 weeks, cucumber
    Rants / raves:  Rants: Not many; feet get tired more easily and I'm finally noticing the swelling of feet after an active day. It's not crazy swelling, but it's definitely there. Not so much of a rant, than a concern: I'm still in denial about this whole pregnancy thing! I can't wrap my mind around actually having to deliver and take care of a child for the rest of my life. FTM here, can you tell?
    Raves: Love that I still feel pretty "normal."  Love that DH is awesome.
    Next appointment / type: July 30 for a regular checkup. Going every 2 weeks now.
    What are you doing to keep cool? Heat isn't killing me yet, but I don't do much outdoors. Lemonade has been the go-to drink other than ice water.

    Things left on your to do list: Get a crib, get organized for a hospital bag, finish knitting some things for LO, and pre-register at hospital for admission. At about 34-36 weeks we plan on setting up the bassinet and most of the baby things just in case.
