1. Medical Stuff:

  • PT! Lots of rib manipulation work. At this point, we are trying to get me to labor with my ribs as “in” as they can be. My left side just happens to be the stubborn side…
  • I had my first baby stress test on Wednesday, along with an ultrasound to check my fluid, and an OB visit at the end. Everything was good! During the baby stress test, the nurse called our kid a “loud, wild child.” At my ultrasound after, the tech said your kid is “very, VERY active” (with wide eyes). That night, my big sister, Kristen, reminded me all about the laws of Karma…
  • 4 neighborhood walks. Still truckin along slowly with my sister’s pitbull in my ‘hood ; )

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Tuesday PT! 30 minutes of cardio, light strengthening, OMM…the usual…I forgot the prenatal cradle but I have it now! Next visit…
  • No other doctors…but I am very happy to report that I am sleeping better. So relieved…
  • I miss sweating. I have not been able to do anything intense since pregnancy…I’m getting excited to be able to sweat again after Baby J arrives.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • I had ZERO appointments this week. ZERO. Craziness.
  • A few walks with Gru through the DARK neighborhood now that daylight savings time has come and gone. Not loving all of the darkness. Sigh…
  • Hit 30 weeks on Tuesday! 75% of the way there!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Acupuncture on Monday. Laying on my back that long was uncomfortable. Was one of the only sessions I did not fall asleep.
  • Physical Therapy was Tuesday. I had more energy this week than I have had the last few weeks, which translated in getting a great cardio session in. It is amazing the difference in energy I have, depending if I do PT on Tuesdays vs Thursdays. By Thursday, I am running on fumes.
  • Was at the hospital most of the day Friday for a family member’s surgery. Luckily, all went well, and we will know more results by Wednesday. Prayers up!
  • Walks, walks, and more walks with my sister’s dog. It’s forcing me to get out there and move, I guess : )

1. Medical Stuff:

  • PT on Thursday. So happy my OB said I can do electrical stim again. It helps calm down my first ribs that will not cooperate right now.
  • I saw my shrink on Tuesday. I made him prove that we met for an hour. It felt like 2 minutes.
  • Allie moved home last weekend and started her new job with long hours, so I’ve been walking Gru Gru each day. If only I had been doing this from the beginning of my pregnancy…it forces me to get my body moving.
