Our Tuesday check-up was cancelled because our ob/gyn had an emergency in theatre, but we did get to see him yesterday.
Everything looks good, the off-spring currently weighs about 2.5 kgs (5.5 pounds) and is still head down.
My blood pressure is a little low 105/60. This would account for the dizzy spells/feeling. The doctor isn’t too concerned, though he did say that it’s about this time in the pregnancy that we would expect to see blood pressure rising rather than dropping, but my blood pressure has been on the low side for the duration of the pregnancy. We’ve got another appointment in 2 weeks, so he’ll check it again then.
I’ve now seen two of the three companies that I phoned for quotes for our big move. One company never called back and I figure if they don’t want our business why should I chase them and force it upon them. I’m now waiting for the other two companies to fax me their prices.
My house looks like a bomb has hit it, I’m just too tired after work to tidy and Gorgeous Man is completely snowed under at work he’s been great with the cooking. We gratefully accepted the offer of his mother to do some cleaning for us. She’s there as we speak (or rather as I type), so I’m going to arrive home to no dishes in the sink and a clean bathroom 🙂
We have our birthing class again tonight. Gorgeous Man has a work function that he has to be at so I’m going by myself. There are usually one or two women alone each time – so I won’t stand out too much. and this one isn’t the big labour class.
I’ve got 11 working days left, and I am incredibly tired. I just want to put my head down on my desk and sleep most of the time. Unfortunately, there’s a window that looks into my office…so that option is out.
There’s not much quilty stuff happening. By the time I get home from work I need to put my feet up (to reduce the very swollen ankles) and this prevents me from standing at the cutting table and sewing on the machine. I’m hoping to pick up some batting Friday afternoon and get the quilt basted sometime over the weekend, hopefully in the morning before the swelling hits. I’m hope I’m not complaining too much. It always used to annoy me when pregnant women complained about the complaints of pregnancy because I would have given anything to have those complaints…
Quilting guild is having a ‘spring clean bring and sell your stash’ day on Monday. I don’t have much of a stash to sell, but last year I picked up most of the fabrics that went into the African Animal quilt quite cheaply so I’m excited about that. Hopefully I’ll find some bargains and have a haul to show next week.
There is an ultrasound picture from this week – but I’ll have to wait until it’s been digitalised before I can post it here.
