Week 22 rants and updates

My life right now consists of working, school, baby shopping, sleep….repeat. When I have a free moment I can be found on the couch asleep or trying to be.

This week I wrench was thrown into the works. I woke up (literally woke up) with tendonitis in my right foot. Me being me thought it wasn’t that bad and I had probably slept funny or something. So I limed around all week. then I had my first real leg cramp on Thursday night. Come Friday AM I couldn’t put weight on my foot at all. Again me being me I tried to figure out how to get from the bedroom to the front room hoping and leaning on things (my husband asked why I didn’t crawl? Because that would be logical!). Well I called the hubby home from work to take me to the dr. That is notable as I never do that. He freaked out and thought I had a blood clot even though I told him it was my foot. So when he got hoe very quickly he got home his adrenalin was through the roof. I was really ok and by then I had iced it and stretched so I was able to put some weight on it. So basically the dr has nothing that she can do for it, she said to got to physical therapy and all I can think is I don’t have time for that! Well that was Friday AM and today I woke up and my foot is like nothing happened! WHAT??? crazy!

As long as nothing is wrong in my belly i can handle the rashes, sore feet, exhaustion and anything else that doesn’t effect the baby. We did find out that we have to have another ultrasound because the images of the heart were not clear?? That’s fine i want to see him again!

On the baby shopping front we got our crib, dresser and mattress courtesy of my father last week. This really takes a load of my shoulders. We have decided on the bedding from pottery barn kids. We didn’t buy it yet though I am going to try and wait for a big sale since it is on the expensive end. This will kind of set the theme of the room. I have decided on an alphabet theme with rich primary colors. I really want a large navy blue rug (but rugs are also very expensive). Honestly I am trying to avoid a one theme because I know our family’s and they will forever buy themed things for the rest of his life i.e. monkey’s or Winnie the pooh.  This is a great relief~ I think its funny we are spending so much time on a room that he wont use until this time next year, if we are lucky.

Registries… I have three… one at target, babies r us and buy buy baby. I would like to condense to two but I am not sure which to choose. I feel as though I am also breaking rules and registering for all kinds toys and things and stuff. Does anyone have advice on registries? I want a bigish one but i don’t want to overwhelm people or deter them from getting things we want. Oddly enough i am not even sure how many people will buy from the registry.

On to baby showers. My good friend wants to throw it for us which is amazing! and my mom want to have a separate one for some of her friends. So that’s two and my hubby thinks that’s dumb. He thinks there should be one, i don’t mind however many we have. If friends and family all want to get together big or small it makes me very happy to know they want to be part of this journey. I don’t know how to relate to hubby that multiple showers can be normal. I love baby showers! however my own is feeling nuts. Not to mention i am so exhausted so planning is kinds limited. We set dates so that exciting! With all the holidays and bday’s and our anniversary its going to be a very busy season.

Oh things about me…

I am at my pre-pregnancy weight now. which makes me happy, really unexpected because i have been eat not so good lately. All my old stretch marks are showing up and it looks like some are getting bigger and it looks  there might be three new ones. That’s at least according to hubby. I know its inevitable but grrrr not pretty.

I can only feel him flutter which worries hubby but i am ok with the occasional flutter as i know soon it will be a rib getting kicked. We bought a heart beat monitor thingy (against my advice) we tried it out last night and had no luck. We could barely find my heart beat let alone his. We found hubby’s right away!

Well that’s all my random rants for right now, i am feeling more attached to him this week and everything is moving along nicely!

  1. We did 2 registries, Babies R Us and Amazon. I love amazon! We had some gifts purchased from both, but yes, a lot of people do their own thing and don’t use the registry. I don’t understand why. Register for what you want. If things are not purchased most places let you complete the registry with a discount. I ended up getting some of the items from my registry on Amazon that no one bought for a discount, and I didn’t have to buy all that was left, just want I wanted. Also it is not unusual to have more than one shower. I say the more the merrier! 🙂

    As far as the doplar and hearing the heartbeat. It takes practice. Do a search on youtube for the doplar name or something similar and you see some instructions on what to listen for, etc. It helped me out and I LOVED being able to hear the heartbeat whenever I wanted.
