Still not a lot to report here, which is good. I'm all for an uneventful pregnancy and delivery please. We're still waiting on our kitchen to be complete and it's driving me nuts. I managed to finish hemming the curtains for the baby's room last weekend and they look really nice in the room. Doug has been working on the chiffarobe and replaced the mirrors with cork-covered board inserts. I was able to hang the baby clothes we have in there. He has to finish the drawers but it's 85% done. All in all the room is mostly complete, just a few small things to finish up but the big things are done. It's a really happy little room and I like to go in there and sit in the rocking chair.
I had a doctor's appointment last Tuesday and I was still unhappy with my weight gain, around 22-23 lbs. Ugh. My doctor didn't make mention of it but I cringe every time I step on the scale. Luckily my blood pressure is still really good and I haven't had any foot/leg/hand swelling (yet). I vacillate between being a little tired and wanting to do a million things at once. I can't tell you how lucky and thankful I feel for having such an easy time so far, I keep waiting for something crazy to happen (but please don't). People ask me how I feel a lot and I'm honestly able to say that I feel fine. It's getting harder to get out of bed/off the couch but other than that I'm feeling good.
Our childbirth class is next weekend and then my hometown baby shower is on the 23rd. We got our first registry gift last week, a Pack and Play from my very generous former boss. Our 'plan' is for baby to sleep in it in our room for a little while, of course we have no clue how it will all work out until the baby is here.Who knows where he/she might actually sleep. My workplace is generously giving me six weeks off (we're a super small organization and don't have enough employees to qualify for FMLA) so I'm kind of 'nesting' at work too to make things easier for my co-worker, who is going to help my boss while I'm gone. Because I'll be gone during the time we normally work on publications and publicity for the High Holidays I'm trying to get as much of it as possible done before my due date.
I'm sending many positive thoughts and vibes to some of my fellow IF'ers who have just gotten BFP after some heartbreaking losses. I'm crossing my fingers for strong, rising betas, and healthy pregnancies for all of them.
