Baby girl has dropped and BOY do I feel better. My body was having a hard time keeping up because of my frame being small. I've gained 11 lbs and I'm 33 weeks 2 days.
Monday I went to the dr and she was concerned because I haven't gained since my last appointment. She did a growth scan and said that the baby was in the 23rd percentile and that my fluid was below average. Maybe I was worried, but Tuesday my blood pressure went up. My normal is 90/64 ish and it went up to 125/72 and my pulse was 100...these were when I woke up from a nap.
So needless to say, we got behind a little this week. I know we don't have to always stay on track, but this was the 1st time we hadn't done everything I planned on doing. I'm such a planner and organizer! But this week helped me realize that we have no control over things like this. I'm trying to stay on a "schedule" so when baby girl gets here we can take time off. Plus harvest is coming up and we'll be busy, busy, busy! So anyways....how was your week? Sorry for writing a book...haha

I think it's fine to take a breather when you need it.

I'm sure your doctor told you this, but drink plenty of water! :)

I'm jealous ;). I try not to be but I am going to the miss the boat if we don't start trying soon.

You are so tiny, I love the baby bump. Don't worry about missing a few things, they learn constantly. Think of how much they will learn just having the new baby around :). Enjoy it, hope the rest of your pregnancy and everything else goes nice and smoothly for you!

Ohh cute bump you have there! I am now both jealous and relieved. :)
You'd be surprised at how much children soak up. You could even use this as a health class/lesson as you do school. Relax, have fun, do what you can when you can. :)
