Oh, I guess I should add that DH got a new TV last night for our bedroom. An unused return from Sam's club for $250 - an LED TV. It's nice but now I'll never be able to get him to turn it off!
He claims he bought it for me but let's face it - it's all him ;)
Oh, and Mason is still moving around great. We had an NST Tuesday and another tomorrow and next Tuesday. Then doc appt next Thursday just to check on things. I'll be 35 weeks by then and that's a pretty amazing thing.
nuff, gotta go and get a littel work done today.
Another NST today. The office was running late and Mason was moving around like a crazy man the whole time in the waiting room. Then as soon as they hooked me up he went to sleep! They "buzzed" him and he did great after that.
So uncomfy today! Went to lunch with 2 other preggo ladies here at work, that was so nice. But my left foot is still swollen which I don't like.
But the boys beds come tomorrow!!! They will be soooo excited! I can't wait to be able to get their room together and Mason's room together. Finally things feel like they are rolling along.
My uncomfy-ness continues. Guess that's the new norm for the next few weeks. It's ok though.
The boys beds came Saturday so we spent some time with them getting them set up and discussing the best places to put things. We still have a ways to go but at least we got started.
Helped my mom in the garage for a little while and then ate lunch with her. The kids liked it and I think my mom did too.
Had cookouts with neighbors both Saturday and Sunday nights. I was wiped and way over did it this weekend. I was very sore last night and really didn't sleep much. I'm a little disappointed in myself for letting myself get that over worked again. I told DH that from now on I'm taking an hour a day to lie down and put my feet up - no matter what.
Everyone thinks I'm a nut case for having this family and house and projects and work - I get the "I don't know how you do it" a lot from people. Sometimes I don't know how I do it.
DS had a rough weekend still recovering from 2 ear infections. Got a nose bleed and split lip Saturday and a nasty bite from DSS#2 Sunday (yes, DSS#2 paid for that bite - he knows better). I feel bad for DS but he'll get over it.
DD is getting excited and nervous for Mason. DS has so far been the only one to ask to feed Mason - he was so sweet. He was watching TV and the other kids were playing upstairs and I was folding laundry. I told him it was time to turn off the TV and he looked at me and said, "Mama, do you think I will be able to feed baby Mason? He has to eat and I think he would eat for me." Big smile on my face.
Mason's been moving around great and causing a lot of discomfort and some pain. Sometimes I'm not sure if they're small contrax or not - it's tough to tell. I want him to stay put until I say :)
Another NST tomorrow morning so a nice morning for me ahead. Then try to make it through another week of work. I'm trying to put all my stuff off on other people so I don't leave anything undone before I'm gone for 12 weeks. Leaves me twiddling my thumbs sometimes but that's the way it goes.
Another NST this morning - man these are great!!! I'll be bummed if old crazy doc doesn't continue with these for the next few weeks.
Time to get rockin and rollin on the rest of the stuff on our list. Gotta get those pump parts in order, boob supplies, pp supplies. I have some nursing tops and bras so that part is done. Crazy - just a little over 4 weeks left.
We didn't get anything done last night. Plus we have 2 extra nights with the kids one this month and one in May so we lose some prep time there too.
But tonight will be a productive night. Got some laundry done this morning and I just need to fold socks and undies and put everything away. After that I'll get to working on Mason's room cleaning up all the toys/junk we tossed in there. I would like to try to get the crib and stuff set up this weekend. Of course I still don't have any crib bedding but that's a different story!
I'm feeling pretty decent today b/c I took a benedryl last night which helped my allergies and my sleeping - what a big difference in how I feel today.
Back to the grind stone. Gotta try to make it through the work week this week - won't be easy since my mind is totally elsewhere.
Ugh, not feeling the love today :(
I have some stuff to get done at work and then a meeting down on campus until 12:30. I told DH we'd do lunch together after that. I think I may go home and rest for a bit after that though. I'll take a couple of hours of sick time and then work a little from home tonight.
My allergies are rough right now which doesn't help and my back is achier than it's been in a while.
But we did get the older boy's clothes all put away in their new homes last night and we'll start working on their toys tonight and tomorrow. Hopefully they'll be all set by the weekend.
That way DH can finish up our walk in closet construction and I can work on Mason's room! Yay!
So I am looking forward to that. Rock on - got a meeting to go to.
So I have an appt today at 2. The only thing I don't want to happen is an internal - so we'll see. I guess if crazy doc wants to do one I'll probably have to comply - which I'm no good at the whole compy-ing thing. I mean who wants to do what their told to do anyway???
Mason is quiet this morning which is good because he's not doing handstands on my bladder but bad because it always makes me worry.
Appt went fine. Looks like I don't have to do the GBS test at all and crazy doc even said I won't have to endure an internal exam for 2 more weeks. So one last u/s next Thursday but nothing tramatic - whew!
Just wanna keep ole Mason in there until May 21 - that's not so much to ask, now is it???
We had a busy weekend. I've been feeling pretty awful with what has turned into a sinus infection. I think I'll be calling crazy-doc to see if I can get him to call in a z pack or something. Even my teeth hurt.
But... I got Mason's room cleaned out so it's ready for the crib. DH finished the walk in closet (except the door but that can be done any time). We moved all our clothes around and I got some baby stuff un-tubbed. We picked up the bassinet from my sis. Just need to wash the sheets on it.
So good progress!!
Oh I forgot - got my hospital bag packed (need to do DH's), got a diaper bag packed, got a diaper caddy ready, got the pump parts and got the bottles washed (just in case - not that I expect to be using those for a while).
So I feel good about that. I'm especially feeling good about that because I've been having some serious cramping for the past hour or so. I'm sure it's just BH or general tiredness but it still worries me that things could go early.
Felt like doodoo yesterday - sinus infection. Called crazy doc and he called me in a z-pack. So after my z-pack does and an Ambien last night I am starting to feel human again - well, almost.
The ex left A&A with me last night. I felt so bad for them since I was not up to snuff. They were wild as usual when they get back from the ex's house but we muddled through. We'll have all 4 tonight so hopefully it will be a good night.
Mason hasn't been as active today which always bothers me. And overall I've felt pretty good with several crampy like sessions throughout the day. STAY PUT MASON!!!
I am so not prepared to have this kid before May 21st. Given that I'm sure he'll come before then - karma or something I guess.
I still haven't gotten the crib together yet and I really want to. My mom is going to RI to be with a dying family member this - I hope her trip goes ok.
But - one of my favorite stalkees on pg.org is back in the Jan 2011 board so that makes me smile. I am so pulling for her. I have a good feeling for her for either this month or next but I don't want to say anything - she's been through so much already.
Onward - 24 more days, but whose counting???
