last week before my glucose test.
I am feeling very pregnant these past few weeks. Thankfully I had the stent removed and I feel like a new woman. Now I can complain about normal pregnancy symptoms and not having stent, ha!
This picture is an x-ray they took after my stent was removed and I thought it was cool and had to snap a picture of it.
I had my glucose test at the end of the month and it came back good. I have gained 11 pounds. I am very happy with that.
We had an ultrasound to check to make sure everything is ok with baby boy after all the drama that happened and he is doing great as well. All this that has happened has given me such anxiety because the last thing I would want is for something as "small" as a kidney stone to affect this baby boy forever. But from the looks of everything he is perfect. He is already 3 pounds.
We also set a date for his birth. June 10th. That is exactly 9 weeks away. It seems so soon and so far away at the same time. I feel enormous and knowing how much longer I have to go makes me get nervous. I have recently started to get swelling of my feet and just aches in my legs from standing too long. So that's fun. I have to realize that I have to slow down, and sit and drink plenty of water.
I do feel way more prepared now than in previous weeks. I am really in nesting mode and am determined to get everything together. I had Derek paint the baby's room and it looks great.
We are working on switching out the ceiling fan with one that isn't ancient, and then we will start setting up. We are doing a nautical theme and I can't wait to see how it will come together! The only big thing we need is a swing and I know I can find one at a yard sale so I am holding out. Same with baby clothes. I even bought his first packs of diapers and wipes! Wow it seems like forever since I had to buy diapers although it wasn't THAT long ago!
We also have a name picked out! We will probably keep it to ourselves until he is here, but you never know. We have went this long without naming him what is 9 more weeks?!
Sleeping is a nightmare and I can't ever get comfortable. I am so exhausted by the end of the day I typically pass out while trying to watch a show. I have to get up early (for me) between 5:30-6 to get to work, and that makes for a long day with this prego mama! My arms fall asleep and then I lay on my back and then I can't breathe. Oh the joys!
That about sums up how I am feeling these days. Here is hoping that these next few weeks fly by and we will soon be holding our sweet baby boy, perfectly healthy!
