Today was my 29+3 week check-up, so 30 weeks (I’m a few days early – 74 days to go!). Some things I learned today:
- The baby is laying horizontal/transverse still; it is her head-butting me on my right side (although she does have her arm/hand above her head currently, so she could be punching as well).
- I’m a tad bit anemic. Not enough for a supplement (on top of the prenatals) but I should eat some spinach and other iron rich foods (except for mollusks, I just can’t go there).
- I passed my glucose test (which I had a hunch about since they never called to schedule a 3-hour one).
My next appointment is in two weeks. Yep, I’ve hit that point now. Still feels surreal that I’m this close.
We’ve got busy, busy days coming up. We’ve got the nursery painted, so this Friday we’ll get the crib and dresser up. Then I can move the baby stuff out of my office and into her room. We’ve finally—well, 98%—decided on a name (which will remain a secret, sorry) so I feel like we’re moving along in that aspect.
I finally received the watermelon hat I had ordered in February. Thank goodness I ordered it in February. ;) I think it’s pretty darn cute! (Now to have a baby to put it on!)
The kiddo went to the eye doctors two weeks ago. You can read about that here. We’ve got the glasses and we’re good to go. He was amazed at how well he could see with them on, so although I was happy, I was still sad that he never said anything. (I looked through them and they are a teeny bit stronger than my computer glasses, so his eyesight isn’t terrible. It’s not fantastic, but not horrendous.)
All of our allergies are acting up, which is no fun. The husband has been sneezing for 3 days straight. :/ He’s taking Zyrtec. The kiddo woke up with clogged ears this am. Gave him his Zyrtec. I peeked outside and sure enough, the neighbors’ trees are in full bloom. Fun times. My “medications ok while pregnant” sheet from the OBGYN states Benadryl. Ugh. I took Benadryl on Saturday and ended up losing four hours—it knocked me out that hard. So when the OBGYN asked me this morning how I’m feeling, I told her—yucky. My eyes are dry then watery, dry then watery. My nose is runny then dry, runny then dry. I feel like Dr. Jekyll and Mrs. Hyde. :/ So, she asked what I use to take and I said Zyrtec. She said she believes I can take that and will check before I leave. Sure enough, I can! Woo Hoo. I can’t wait to sleep well tonight.
Friday the husband is off so along with the dresser and moving stuff up into the nursery, he has to clear the dining room so the floor can be done on Saturday. I am so excited to finally get all the flooring done! I can’t wait.
After that is done, we move on to outside stuff, such as getting the old pool up and the new one installed. But in the meanwhile, we have numerous weekends booked. A communion party, our anniversary dinner (we’re heading to The Melting Pot!), Easter, Mother’s Day, and so on. Busy busy.
And that’s where we stand (for now).
