oops

Sorry it's been almost 2 weeks since my last update. And thanks to those who checked in. Nothing is going on...just the normal, still working 2 jobs and being crazy swollen and tired. I have been uber productive at work the last two weeks (I think that is where all of my nesting energy has been going) and am training in my replacement at my other job so by the time I get home, all I do is shove something in my face that I hope doesn't give me heartburn and lay down.

Had my 36 week appointment today. I can not believe we're down to 4 weeks left! Everything's still looking good. Even though I'm swollen beyond believe (it actually hurts to walk by the end of the day), doc said there's nothing to worry about. The Braxton hicks are picking up in intensity but again, they say that's normal. And to drink more...but I'm already at about 100 ounces per day, and I refuse to make any more bathroom trips than that.

My shower is tomorrow, really excited for that. Mostly just because I want to have everything set up, organized, and ready to go. And then a work shower next Friday. That's usually a nice big gift card, which will be good to get anything else we need. Then I guess it's hurry up and wait...

Good to hear that things are moving along. The swelling is the worst...I've informed my husband that rubbing my feet will be part of his nightly routine from now on. It does help, but so do support hose (the knee high ones)...they're not hot, but they work! Have fun at your showers!!!

4 weeks away! I can't believe it. Hope you have a great shower!!

Regarding the swelling, once I got put on bedrest, my swelling went down in one day. So, if you have a chance to lay in bed for the better part of a day and night, your swelling should go down. I know that will be tough during the nesting stage. :-)
