I’m really counting down the days now, only 41 left, give or take. My guess is that he’ll come a few days early; however I probably just jinxed myself and now he’ll be late. Maybe I should change my prediction…..I think he will be a few days late.
How Far Along: 34 weeks, 1 day (Jeff was out of town, so I had no one to take the picture, thankfully he’s home now)
Workouts: Sadly, I must admit that my workouts have taken a huge hit. I did however make it to the gym once or twice to workout, but I tire so quickly. I’ve also been continuing to walk on my treadmill every day and I aim for at least 1 mile on an incline, or 20 minutes. It just depends on how I feel. I’ve been having quite a bit of lower pelvis pain, and I don’t want to over do it, especially seeing I’ve broken my pubic bone within the last year and a half.
Heartburn/Acid Reflux: This has been by far the worst symptom of my entire pregnancy, and really the only negative symptom that I’ve had to put up with (my heart issues didn’t last too long, so I don’t count that). I’m seriously miserable some nights and can’t sleep because of it. The best way to descibe the experience is that it feels like I’m going to vomit fire. I’ll just be minding my own business, sleeping like normal, and all of a sudden I’ll wake up with this burning sensation in my mouth and throat and it feels like I’m choking on acid. My doctor instructed me to take Prevacid everyday, because Tums was doing nothing for me. It appeared to be working too; until last night. Ugh! It was awful and I thought I was going to die. Not really, but you get the point.
Baby Gifts: This past weekend I had my last baby shower and once again, Griffin was celebrated with love. All my friends really went out of their way and bought him the cutest stuff and I’m definitely thankful. (I don’t really have pictures from the shower, but I did manage to quickly snap this one of the dessert table. My friends are so creative, and I love that they knew what my favorite cake was, even though I can’t remember ever telling them. *strawberry with cream cheese icing*)
There were still a few things left on the registry though, that we knew we would need, so Jeff and I went and picked it up this past weekend. I finally feel that we are officially ready for Griffin to come. However, I know I say that now, and as soon as we get him home, I’m sure Jeff will be running out to get some things that we didn’t know we would need. Such is life.
Sisterly Love: I’m so excited! Not only did Jeff get home from San Francisco today, but we’re also going to be picking my little sister up from the airport around 11:00 tonight! I haven’t seen her since Christmas, and it’ll be nice to have her around for a few days. I’m not too sure what exactly we will do yet, but we’ll find things to entertain us.
I know that Griffin doesn’t have any siblings to be excited to see, and probably won’t (I’m thinking he will be an only child) but his “sister”, Buffy, is seriously very anxious to meet him. It really is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. She still loves to cuddle on my stomach and feel him kick and she also loves to go up to his room and lay on the floor; or really just lay on anything that’s going to belong to him. I can’t wait until they actually get to meet.
What’s Next: I was suppose to go to the doctors this upcoming week, however she’s going to be on vacation and because I’m not high risk, and everything has always looked perfect, she gave me two choices. 1. I could go to my appointment and see another doctor, or 2. I could wait until the following week, when she returns, and go see her. I have quite a bit that’s going to be occurring at my next appointment, so I opted for waiting until she gets back. I don’t think a difference of about 4 days is really going to change much.
Well, I guess that’s about all I have to share for now. I hope that everyone is having a good week and I’ll see some of you soon! Keep up with your workouts.
