I figured that this week instead of complaining about being pregnant, I would talk about what I'm thankful for...because it is so much! There is also a lot to whine about too. :) Ha!
Obviously I'm very thankful for this baby! After everything we have been through to get here, it's a miracle. I'm also very thankful for Shamus and the rest of our families and friends. Everyone has been super amazing. It's wonderful to have so much support.
I'm thankful that even though sleep hasn't been amazing these last few months, I've only had two nights of pregnancy insomnia. Hooray! Hopefully that trend keeps up!
I'm thankful that they figured out this blood clotting disorder thing that I have and that I've only had to do one shot per day so far (and one more week until I have to switch to two/day). Even though these have been painfully hard, it's obviously so worth it. I'm also super duper thankful that the OB and hematologist agreed that I could take warfarin (a pill!!!) after I deliver and not do shots for 6 more weeks. I feel like I got a reprieve. I'm going to have to be monitored a lot more carefully, but it's totally worth it.
I'm thankful that my belly isn't huge and I'm still able to work, even though it's exhausting. The doctor said that my belly is the right size, but it seems smaller because of how I'm carrying the baby. I'll totally take it. I'm really looking forward to having just this week and next week of work and then a few orders after that for people who have placed ahead of time. The end is in sight!
I'm happy that the nursery is almost done and we seem to have everything we need. No last-minute stress for me!
Next week is my final ultrasound so the next time that we see the baby after that will be when we meet him/her! We have about 3.5 weeks to go! Crazy!
Total Weight Gained: 23.4 lbs
Waist Size: 44 inches
Sleep: Sleep is ok. I've slept in the guest room a couple of nights this week so that we both can get some sleep.
Most Exciting Moment: Hearing the heart beat this week at the doctor's appointment. I believe she said 132.
Baby is the Size of a: Canary melon. Anyone know what the heck this is??
Miss Anything? Not having heartburn! It's been on fire this week!
