31 Week Pregnancy Update!
We are officially in the single digits today and have 9 weeks left before our estimated due date! EEEKKK!! Andrew said earlier that he’s just ready to see her already. He wants to know what she looks like. Then maybe we can put her back in my belly for a few more weeks. I said unfortunately it doesn’t work like that!
At my last appointment (3 weeks ago) I had gained 23lbs total, which is still completely within my doctor’s goal of under 35lbs. So I’m super excited about that.
My back pain has semi gotten better; however, for the past 2 weeks or so, I have been dealing with inflamed ribs. I had to get blood work done to make sure there were no issues with my liver or gallbladder and luckily there are not, so for now I’m just trying to surviving the inflammation.
We had our hospital tour last week and are very excited about their encouragement of rooming in, availability of lactation consults, and the fact they are considered a Level III NICU unit just in case something would happen.
I officially cannot reach my toes to paint them. Granted I can still put my socks and shoes on no problems, I know it would take me hours if I tried to do it, so I asked Andrew if he would help. He graciously painstakingly accepted the challenge.
I must say, it was hilarious. He started by removing the old polish and then started putting on the new bright pink color. On numerous occasions, I kept hearing UH OH. At one point, I knew it had to bad at one point when he said, “so, what do I do if I make some mistakes.”
I was surprised he truly wanted to make them look better and went to get a q-tip to fix it!
While the end result is by no means, salon pedicure quality, I think he did an amazing job and I’m truly blessed to have a fiance who is willing to help me!! 🙂
