Bascially… a day in my life right now… (well maybe mine is a little less glamorous)
Sorry for the delay in posts. This pregnancy is really flying by at this point. It’s crazy that we’re just a month of so away from welcoming our baby girl into the world! Work has been so busy. We’ve had event after event after event. I’ve come to realize my limitations. I can’t be on my feet and running around like I have always done. Maybe this is a good life lesson… slow. down.
I honestly wish I could remember what all happened during these two weeks. Baby is still breech. We are now doing weekly blood tests to track my elevated liver enzymes. They seem to have leveled off but are still a tad higher than normal in the 40s. Good news is that we tested for cholestasis and I was negative. I’m being cautious and watching for headaches, high blood pressure and blurred/double vision as they can all be signs of preeclampsia. Overall, things are looking up. My head has been a bit clouded lately. It’s hard to remember everything going on. I feel like I’ve kind of lost myself the last couple of weeks while my head is filled with nerves and stress about the baby’s arrival. I’m not nervous about her getting here… more stressed about how I’ll accomplish all I need to before she arrives.
Another thing… this is the phase of pregnancy where you become a blubbering mess. I’ve cried at more things during this two week period than I have in the past year. For example, I cried while driving when Puff Daddy’s Missing You came on the radio. My head filled with images of him and all his friends dancing in a field remembering his old friend. To be quite honest, I can probably release some tears right now just thinking about it.
Lots of fun things have happened in the last couple weeks. In an effort to seek the positive elements, check out some of the things we did…
