Good Morning Ladies
How'd we sleep last night ? Tossed and turned a bunch then moved to the couch and slept very well .
This weather is very hard for me to handle will be sitting in front of the ac today.
QOTD how many of you ladies get massages ?
35 weeks today and made it to July! ...and I'm free!! Dr said "you can do whatever you want, but in all honesty after being on bedrest for so long you won't be able to do much." Oh, except s*x - still not allowed
Am exhausted after trip to appointment, so I'm laying on the couch now haha. But looking forward to going through baby clothes later. Also planning to take a look at spinningbabies. If I have another goal, it is to avoid a c-section.
QOTD: I've only had one professional massage. I do like to get body scrubs though
Hope everyone is doing well!
Success is getting up just one more time than you fall down.
I actually slept 6 hours last night! Much better than the two hours a night I've been averaging the last week. My heart goes out to those on hospitalized bedrest. I spent three weeks there during my second pregnancy hooked up to every monitor and tubing possible. Just miserable being tethered! The only nice thing was having an adjustable bed and my own personal thermostat where I could keep the room as cold as I wanted without having to pay the electric bill.
I'm not really a massage person, but I've heard prenatal massages are amazing.
Good Morning Ladies!
First things first....HAPPY CANADA DAY for all you Canadian Ladies laid up on bed rest today. I have moved from the bed to the couch and am watching the CBC National broadcast from Ottawa.
With this crazy heat it was really hard to get to sleep last night, but once I did I slept really well. With that said, I am retaining tones of water right now, so I did not end up waking up to pee. Felt good to get a solid amount of sleep, but I am very puffy this morning.
I had some real challenges regulating my BP yesterday. I think my body is really feeling taxed by the heat. My hubby is heading out to purchase us a fan today, so hopefully that will help.
I got a pregnancy massage at about 23 weeks and it was great! But now that my BP is high, massages are a no go, as apparently they can further increase your BP.
I hope everyone has a good start to the week!
Yay Harley on your mini milestone! I, too have hit 23 weeks and am counting down to 24 which is my first mini milestone.
Congrats Nantucket on your freedom! I hope your energy comes back!
Happy Canada day to those this applies to. I'm half Canadian so always acknowledge it.
I slept ok, woke to several contractions but they eased, just working on staying cool and trying not to miss everything I want to be doing. Husband got all my plants planted outside from the guest room. Plants were like my other babies but not enough room for them and the baby. Unfortunately, cats love to eat them and get sick and nursery is only room that protected them and offered sunlight, so we decided to plant them in our mini condo garden and hope they survive. Only exceptions were my aloe and Christmas cactus. Cats don't like eating those!
I don't care much for massages. I've had two, the first one, the woman couldn't/wouldn't stop talking to me the whole time. Mostly she discussed her facial hair and what razors worked best to get rid of it. The second was a hot stone massage and have to admit that I loved that one! I'm not a big fan of being touched by strangers, but the stones helped with that. I had planned to try a pregnancy one, but all this seems to have intervened. Maybe one after LO comes!
Happy day, everyone!
