Five For Friday 2/1/19 & 2/8/19

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

Yes, two in one again…this is Motherhood. This may be the reality for a while…because when I’m not loving on sweet Lucia, I’m running around the house taking care of other things…and when I get a moment, I just want to sleep…blogging is just not at the top of the list right now.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • I made time to see my shrink. Non-negotiable. If I don’t work on keeping my cup full, I will not be able to be the mother I want to be.
  • Still working on the shock of crazy sleep deprivation on my system. Thank God for an amazing husband, and family who lets me nap once in a while.
  • Working on incorporating therapy right now. It’s really, really hard. Like I said, when there is me time right now, I just want to rest.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • I had my 32 week OB check on Tuesday. This appointment was about all of the things we need to think about…and have not yet. Things like having a pediatrician in place. Guess what is on my to do list for this week??? Heartbeat and measurements were good and I only gained 1 pound in a month. Bonus. I begin the baby non-stress tests in a few weeks…
  • I’ve done really well this pregnancy, but I can honestly say in the last week, I have crossed over to the uncomfortable zone. Eye on the prize.
  • Short week. No PT appointments. Walks outside and a sad amount of strengthening. I don’t care how giant you feel, step it up, Katie…; )

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:

  • Tuesday PT. It’s getting harder. One foot in front of the other. Had 20 mins of wonderful heat and stim on my neck.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. 3 miles and light strengthening. Hoping I can do this until January…
  • One more Lovenox shot and I am done for the rest of this pregnancy. I always freak out when I go off a med that the baby has been used to since the beginning. Praying.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • I had ZERO appointments this week. NONE. Not gonna lie, it was glorious…not getting used to it, but I cannot remember the last time that happened.
  • 2 days of half assed Home Rehab. Must. Do. Better. Gotta dig deep these days to find my energy.
