Still pregnant here...I wasn't dilated at all on Thursday but I go back to the doctor today to make a plan and I've had every prelabor sign known to man. Hopefully he decides to come soon because I really want to avoid having to be induced at the hospital! So far I've tried a bazillion things that are supposed to induce labor...pineapple, Chinese food, walking, breast pump, and on and on and on. Haha. Someday I will blog about my experiences with all the things I tried. Anyway, onto the Weekly Chase...
This week I was...legen...wait for it...dary! (if you have not seen the show How I Met Your Mother, do so now, please)
- Rest as much as possible I did this! I only babysat for a couple of hours each morning and cut my work hours down from 30 to 20! I even took 3! bubble baths...and ate a cupcake in the bathtub...hehe, I'm pregnant, don't judge!
- Walk I did this! I walked for 45 minutes on Monday and on Saturday I walked to Dean and Deluca and to Paper Source to get supplies! Yay!
- Work on Clay's scrapbook and finish crocheting his Cowboys hat Bam, I rocked this! The scrapbook is 75% finished and here is the hat:
- Hydrate I was a ROCKSTAR most days when it came to this. And I forced (by forced I mean bugged constantly all day) my friend Liz on my quest to hydrate!
Goals for this week:
- Have this baby.
However, until that precious time comes, here are my goals for this week:
- Read the posts from other Weekly Chasers!!! I have had so many wonderful comments from you all and every time I sit down to read everyone's I get through one or two then get sidetracked (baby brain, anyone?).
- Continue to walk, hydrate, and rest I feel great physically (most of the time) so I want to stay as active as possible until I deliver without wearing myself down.
- Work on Clay's scrapbook and Rhonda's blanket Maybe I'll get the scrapbook done by the time he's 50... And I starting making a blanket for my dear friend Rhonda. She was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and I thought a lap blanket might be a good addition to her next care package :)
- Bake cookies I'm such a hostess. Like I can't help it. It's bad. Anyway, I want a treat to take to the hospital to share with my family, friends, and nurses. I will draw the line at making everyone individual treat bags...maybe :0
