I’m always surprised by what I have to do at the dr.s appts. I guess it’s better that way because I don’t have time to get nervous about it. I had my first cervical check & the strep b test something or other. I’ve heard the internal checks are painful so I was nervous, but I love my dr. & didnt feel a thing. Seriously, she is great. haha. No dilation here- but she said she felt his head so we know he is head down. (I already knew this from his hiccups) I’m up to 140 which means I’ve gained 35 lbs total. That’s like 1lb a week!
I’m still doing great, in great spirits & loving being pregnant. You gotta take the good with the bad so of course I have more weird things happening. Like I somehow have carpal tunnel syndrome- this whole past week sleeping has been not so fun. My hands/fingers fall asleep so bad that they burn & it wakes me up … I just expect to see my fingers turning black like they will fall right off. If I can keep them elevated while still sleeping on my left side they do better. BUT most of the time I have to walk around for an hour in the middle of the night to get the feeling back in them.
On a more positive note, JJ, seems to be taking this baby business a little better. He talks to my belly everytime he sees me- he still calls the baby Jace, but as long as he’s acknowledging him at this point I’m okay with it. lol. He says everyone will stop paying attention to him once the baby is here. And he thinks baby will chew on his toys and ‘not like him’. haha.
I have to say something about Jared real quick. I know we all love our husbands or we wouldnt be married to them, but I’m just so amazed how great he really is to me. A couple times this past week I’ve had absolutely no energy after work & had to lay down when we got home. One day he came to wake me up after a couple hours and was just being real cute and fun & told me he didnt know what to make for dinner so he just cooked some stuff. lol. Jared is a good cook, he just has to have a recipe or someone tell him what foods to cook. I just love the little things he does to show how much he cares about me. Like my grandpa tells me, you have to both put 100% into your relationship- not just 50/50. I’m just so thankful that I have him as my best friend & wanted to share that. Of course I took a picture of what he made. (Yeah I know we didnt have a meat- I don’t usually care for much meat)
And he even made dessert!! Look how cute this banana pudding is!
This weekend we used our gift cards from the showers to get more of our baby stuff from BRU & Target! We finally got our mattress & our glider! We went to BRU planning on buying the medium priced glider opposed to the ‘top of the line glider’ we had originally wanted. Well we sat in them & decided we should just get the best one since we will probably have it for a long time. We got up there to order it & it ended up being on sale!! Plus we had a 15% off coupon! So we spent the SAME amount of money as we had originally planned & got the better glider too. We were very happy! So we should get it in 7-14 days. After shopping we went to Karen’s art show in downtown, Ft. Worth. She is the one that printed our canvas wall art for us. Ally was hanging out with us that day too.
