I had a Dr appt today. Bp was good, weight gain for this pregnancy 13#, Carter's heart beat sounded great, and he's measuring about 4 days ahead. My guess for his arrival is October 31.
My check brake alert came on two days ago and this was the first day I could get them looked at. Well the guy told me both front and back axle brakes needed replacing. So that came to $600! I almost died on the spot. I told him to fix which ever one was worse and I'd have to come back to get the other fixed next month, provided that it was safe. So they fixed the front and he said it was ok to come back in 30 days for the back ones...no safety concerns yet. He did give me a 'pregnant lady' discount of $70 which was nice. But now I'm totally broke until pay day. Oh I also made my last payment to my ob today too. Today was pay day and I have $160 to my name for the next two weeks. I've been really down about it today. It seems like when I get a little bit ahead something always happens! I just want to cry!!!
I distracted myself today by working in the baby's room. I did 5 loads of baby laundry, put away shower gifts, put together the swing, wrote thank you notes, shampooed the carpet in the nursery, and started packing my hospital bag.
So that was my day. I'm praying that God will find a way to give me some financial relief. It's really depressing, especially with my unpaid maternity leave rapidly approaching.
