Well, I’m in my final stretch here of pregnancy land, and to greet me have been a variety of old and new aches and pains. I’ve been seeing the chiropractor twice a week to help my hip and pelvic pain, which has made a huge difference. My round ligament pains have returned with a vengeance, but only on the right side. The other night just trying to position myself to lay down on my left side was pure agony. I’ve mostly been taking it easy, but occasionally I still get unbelievable pain. As far as contractions go, the false labor I had last week didn’t hurt a bit! It actually seemed to relieve the other pains temporarily, although I don’t know if that’s actually what happened, or I was distracted by timing contractions. Same result, either way.
So we picked up the last of the baby things after the baby shower at Mike’s office. We’ve got all the essentials and then some. We also got a ton of newborn sized clothing given to us by one of Mike’s co-workers. Unless she’s a smaller baby, I have my doubts that she’ll be wearing more than a handful of them, but they’re very cute! I should probably go through and delete all the items that we already have from all of our registries, although I can’t see many more people using them, since she’s almost here!
So up until I do go into real labor, I’m just waiting for it. Trying to keep myself busy. I’ve got a few organizational projects on the go, including under the kitchen sink. I’ve also gone to see a couple of movies. I feel like I should do some reading before I don’t have much time for that anymore, but for some reason the thought doesn’t interest me. Maybe I got all the reading in that I wanted in the past few months! So until Peanut decides to make her world premiere, I’ll be sorting through cleaning products on the kitchen floor.
