It felt like a really long month, full of snow and sun, bad and good moments for my pregnancy.
The month was filled with physio and Dr.'s appointments.
Physio has been cut back to every ten days, but soon it will be cut back even more. Initially it was cut back because I can do all of the exercises at home, and I'd go in for acupuncture when I was in severe pain. My insurance only covers so many visits to physio I'm having to cut back even more, I'm thinking once a month now... which sucks but oh well.
I'm now down to bi-weekly visits to the doctor, which means I'm in my third trimester of my pregnancy. I'm now beginning to feel pregnant, ie: crushed pelvis, back aches, swollen fingers and ankles... I've got kankles! This makes me very sad. I now wear my ring around my neck, which also makes me sad. Can't see my feet when I stand. Rolling over in bed, getting dressed feels like someone took their fist to my pelvis, which is very uncomfortable. I calculate I've got about 9 weeks left, baby is big and healthy, loves to give kicks and punches, but nothing too painful. Michael still can't feel the baby kick, and he still hasn't seen an ultrasound, but that will change this month. I go in on the 16th to see if the baby has settled with his head down...
I've been starting a small garden, I've already got a good head start on some garlic, I also have Basil, Dill, Sage, and Mint going. I also picked up seeds for cucumber, carrots, and tomatoes. I'm looking forward to seeing everything go. I'm waiting until the herbs sprout before transplanting them into the ground, I've got them in small starter decomposable pots.
Got the car up and going again. I love driving it! The day after getting it going I listed it for sale, it's a little two seater sports car that is very impractical for a growing family... So it's listed for $16,700 and in hopes of selling it, finding a cheaper car that fits more than two people, a dog, and more stuff than two golf bags. We took it to the dealership and what a gong show that was... I was not very happy and frustrated through the whole ordeal. It's one thing I want to take care of sooner than later, but Michael thinks we've got plenty of time. ...we'll see...
This month ahead...
Michael's parents are driving over to drop off all of the baby gear they picked up for us. Our spare bedroom will officially become the nursery once everything is set up. It makes me giddy thinking about it.
So it's May, that means by the end of this month we'll see if Michael get's permanent contract at the school or if we're going to have to find somewhere else to move to... which I hope is not the case. If something does go wrong it doesn't matter, as long as we're together that's all that matters.
