...as I shared yesterday, still pregnant.
I'll let this serve as a 38/39 week update considering I've been all sorts of lazy and didn't really update last week. It's been a hectic but great week - last week was ridiculously exhausting, I was cramming in all of my last minute work meetings that I really wanted to get done before maternity leave. All of that running around campus combined with all of the swelling I was having [biiiig sore feet and hands] made for an exhausting week.
LUCKILY, I work for an amazingly accommodating Dean/department and it was per my boss's suggestion that Friday was my last day working out of the office! Therefore, as of yesterday I'm working from home until Sweet P makes her appearance [hello yoga pants 24/7]! Which is great because I am able to save my vacation/sick time for maternity leave and not start maternity leave until baby j gets here... So Friday was my last day "in the office" until mid-August (6 weeks maternity leave/6 weeks working from home)... hell to the yes. SO EXCITED.
other than the whole finishing up work/now permanently living in yoga pants for the next three months thing not too much is happening. Sweet P is just plumping up in utero and my doctors appointment yesterday went well - things are "developing" on the cervix front [I'll spare you details] but I'm happy progress is being made. I have an appointment made for Monday afternoon if she's not here yet and we'll talk "what next" at that point -- who knows. Fingers crossed she comes on her own before then! I've been trying to "walk her out" - 2.2 miles at the lake saturday, strolling around downtown Athens sunday and yesterday was spent doing laps at Target! So back to the lake today and hopefully that combined with the Raspberry Tea I've been chugging down non-stop will help get her moving....
what a difference 30 weeks makes... (8 weeks/almost 38 weeks)... I can't believe I was ever that skinny [or that I didn't realize how skinny I was then, damn]... fingers crossed in 30 weeks [or less] I'll be back to the "before picture"
this past week's snapshots...
so here we are....
7 days until my due-date.
so ready for sweet p to get here!
