I think I can appreciate being home all day everyday now. It was a struggle to get here. I felt like I was missing out on so much. I knew I was doing what I had to but it was still tough. Maybe me being less stubborn has made it easier…who knows. Anyhoo, I’ll get to the roundup.
I went in for an ultrasound. I’m happy to report all is well with baby and I.
I’m drawing a blank. I wanna say I sat around watching TV most of the day.
I started cleaning/purging/organizing. I’m so determined to have my home organized (or as close to it as possible) before baby arrives. I really don’t want to start bringing in a bunch of baby stuff on top of the junk we already have. I also don’t think it’s fair to her to move into a cluttered home. I’m just doing small stuff, following the doctor’s orders.
I also made the best quesadillas! I’ll post a recipe soon.
I had thee best nap ever! It’s hard for me to nap during the day, I’m not sure why. My neighbors are loud as hell but even when it’s quiet it’s still hard for me.
I had an OB appointment. She was out of the office that day so I ended up seeing a Midwife. The Midwife wasn’t too bad, I would see her again if I had to. She did however give me some homework to do. I am to look into and choose a birthing method. The options are:
Lamaze I think everyone has heard of, the other two had me stumped. I did some research, still undecided though.
I also took some time to write out goals for the month. That really got me excited and looking forward to a project I’m working on. It also made me realize I need a new planner. One where I can really plan out my day and keep track of all these appointments. I usually use my Google Calendar and link it to our phones. That’s awesome for the things we share like bills due and doctor’s appointments but I need something more.
I slept late, ate good and relaxed. I booked a venue for my baby shower and began the decor hunt. I don’t even wanna talk about. And you know how I feel about Pinterest at this point.
I also went on a hunt for a new planner. I had no idea this was such a big deal. People have Instagram pages dedicated to planners; and they get pricey. So far I really like the The Happy Planner, this may be it. I also like The Simplified Planner and The Life Planner.
The Simplified Planner is out of stock for 2015 and honestly the price is more than I would like to pay, but if I get personal reviews I would spend the money. The Life Planner is is also out of stock for 2015. It’s very colorful which I feel like would keep me excited.
Another ultrasound. No bad news to report. I was craving pancakes so B and I went to Bob Evans for breakfast. Next time I’ll just make my own pancakes. They weren’t bad but the service wasn’t the best and the bacon and potatoes could have been better.
Now I’m just chilling and researching an new OB. I know, I know, in the middle of my pregnancy. My original OB is also pregnant and due two weeks before me. Today I found out she’s out until she delivers. Although I’m devestated, I really hope she and baby are ok.
Well folks, that sums up another week on bed rest while pregnant. Doesn’t feel like I did too much but I sure did write a lot.
If you have any suggestions on a birthing method or a planner please let me know in the comments. I could really use some insight.
