Goodness, how fast a week goes! I just realized that I didn’t update on our home visit last week and now we have another appointment tomorrow!

All went well last week. Even the house cleaning. My other half likes to wait longer on things like that than I do…I guess he’s really spurred by the adrenaline rush. 😐 He really got the children moving though and everyone pulled together to pick up where I can’t help but be slack right now. Again, it wasn’t what I would have preferred but I’m learning to let things go and things are as they are right now.

My blood pressure reading proved that I’m doing well in turning certain things over to God and “not sweating the small stuff”…it was the best it’s been the whole pregnancy so far!! LOL πŸ˜† 114/68 Everything else was exactly right on too. The midwife even laughed and said to the children, “Your mother is such a perfect pregnant lady!” LOL My dh has also said that pregnancy just seems to suit me each time… Hmmm. Tell that to my hips! And, lower back. I’ve had some injuries to both areas so I think that it goes beyond the “normal” pregnancy discomfort. I’ve said it before and I’m not exaggerating…it’s quite debilitating at times. Otherwise, I have nothing to complain about. Six of one, half dozen of the other. I’m thankful that my “problems” are limited in pregnancy and yet ones I do have are real buggers. My family is at least able to compensate for me though with these where if I had any others they wouldn’t be able to. God is merciful. πŸ™‚

So, tomorrow another appt. and as I thought the midwives are going to come here. Not sure if it’s just because they have other appts. out-n-about or they are just being sympathetic. (Going on errands and sitting in the car any length of time is just so uncomfortable/painful.) Whatever the case my be, I’m happy to have the checkup here. πŸ™‚ Only thing is, I don’t have a scale and I’m curious about my weight. Two weeks ago, I’d actually lost 1/2 a pound and then, of course, last week we couldn’t check. No big deal. I probably should be happy not to know. πŸ˜‰ Again, just curious…

I’m still not *exactly* sure when our midwife leaves on her trip…I forgot to ask last week and this morning when she called to set up our appt. (she was at a birth so I didn’t want to keep her anyway πŸ˜‰ ). She said she’s been “praying” (we haven’t delved into her religious beliefs so…for what it’s worth…) that I will go early at 37 wks so that she will be here. Hmmm. As I’ve said previously, earliest was with the last baby at 39 wks. I’ve usually gone to 40 wks minus a couple of days. The Braxton Hicks have really increased in frequency and intensity but that’s not unusual. So… We’ll see. I really don’t think I’ll have the baby at the end of this week. I just don’t feel *that* close.
