A peek at the past week (how I’ve been): Man, I still feel like I’m in week 27! Perhaps I’m just nervous about my new place in the third trimester and want to hold on to the past as much as possible. The week started off pretty mellow. I bought a couple of outfits for baby L online:
We had our second prenatal class, which was great. We ended up discussing fear and how it can effect labour. At the time I was feeling pretty good, but the next day all of my fears came to the surface and caused a major talk with Pat and then later, my sister. We got an estimate from the contractor and will hopefully be booking with them this week. Later in the week, I took advantage of my last friday off until Mat Leave starts by getting my hair cut, having lunch with Pat and some of his co-workers and getting a massage!
Unfortunately, all of my running around resulted in a seriously sore body (I’m so not used to these limitations yet), so I spent Saturday doing a whole lot of nothing. Sunday, we were invited over to Nana J & C’s place for dinner. There, I was gifted with the most geektastic shirt ever from Think Geek:
How far along am I? 28 weeks, 1 day.
I am thinking… Stressing a lot right now, actually. Trying not to, but yesterday was a long rough day and last week (so week 27) had some definite low points. Basically, after my long chat with my sister on Wednesday, I went to bed to read and relax. Right before going to bed, I noticed some blood on the sheets and realized I was spotting pretty heavily. After speaking with the midwife, I was assured that everything was fine, but it’s been pretty stressful since then, keeping track of Baby L’s movements and being really gentle with myself. Also, I’m thinking about how much we have going on over the next while. So busy!
I am thankful for… My peeps, as always. We had a great time at Jan & Cathy’s this weekend, and we’re trying to get out there more. S and I have plans on Saturday and Tracy and I are making phone date plans too. Times may be rough, but I have a great support system.
From the kitchen… Nothing new, I don’t think. I made delicious quiche again, but that’s about it.
I am wearing… (sorry folks, TMI time!) pads. Not going to get into specifics about what kind of pads, but let’s just say that I am at that point in pregnancy where everything leaks.
I am creating… Nothing right now, aside from baby :P Almost started a baby sweater this weekend, but I have to choose the yarn first.
I am going… To prenatal class tonight, a midwife appointment tomorrow, hanging out with S on Saturday and then back to Jan & Cathy’s for Sunday dinner. Busy week!
I am reading… Some more baby books (my SIL lent me some reads on baby sleep. I’m currently reading this one.) and The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N.K. Jemisin, as well as rereading one of my favourite series: Outlander. Don’t judge me. Those books are AWESOME. I’m actually on The Fiery Cross now.
I am hoping…to start receiving some of the great things we’ve bought for Baby L in the mail! Not only did I buy those cute outfits, but we also participated in a website deal where we got a box of pamper’s diapers for super cheap. Also, while Babies R Us is having BabyFest, Pat and I decided to pick up our carseat:
Yep. It was our first “major” baby purchase. Shit’s getting real, yo! ;)
I am hearing… Been thinking about my parents a lot lately, and so this song has been in my head and on repeat:
Around the house…Lots of decluttering, cleaning and planning.
One of my favorite things…White hot chocolate. It’s such a comfort thing. Mum used to buy us little packages to go in our stockings at Christmas from the Second Cup that was in the hospital main hall, when she was still working there. Every Christmas morning I’d have one. I know it’s terrible for me, but Timmy’s just introduced their own White Hot Chocolate, so I’ve indulged a few times.
