OB Appt yesterday @ 31 weeks 4 days
- 31 weeks 4 days (they have me listed @ 30 weeks 4 days)
- belly measured @ 32 weeks
- 147 lbs
- excellent BP
- heartbeat: 130's bpm
- no swelling
- baby#2 is head down
so all is well. the only thing that annoys me is the fact that they have me listed as a week behind. the OB was like , "oh, you're measuring a bit large at 32 weeks!"
um- not so much. i'm 31 weeks 4 days- so i'm actually measuring pretty spot on. duh.
i'm going to insist they change it up @ my next appt in 2 weeks. this is silly- plus, i want a more exact date before i deliver.
anyway- i'm pleased that this kid is head down already. hopefully she stays that way.
here are some belly pics from this past friday (31 weeks):
as you can see- alex was NOT a happy camper that morning.
still no maternity wear- but FYI those skinny cords would NOT zip up. my rarely used Bella Band came in handy that day.
now- let's discuss something that is currently annoying me: alex's new bedroom.
it is currently in a VERY non-livable state. it's where we housed the chickens for their first 6 weeks of life & so it needs all of the following:
- a thorough cleaning
- a floor
- ...everything else
basically- it needs to be started on ASAP-and guess who can't do any of those things (minus the cleaning, which i can't do until he clears out the room for me)? me.
but guess who can? right, the husband.
but guess who gets an attitude every time i bring it up? right again, the husband.
i get that he's tired & wants to relax- but this is life. and it has to get done. and he has less than 8 weeks to do so. in fact, he has about 6. and everyday he has less & less time.
i don't want it to get done at the last minute because i don't want to push alex into her new room with no time to adjust. it's not fair to her. no matter how awesome her room is (and it's gonna be pretty awesome)
so yeah. i'm going to take matters into my own hands & ask my father in law (who will be assisting the husband with this project) to call him this weekend. my FIL is a go go go kind of guy. once he starts- he doesn't stop. like literally, you have to shut off his power tools & drag him away. i love it!
so that's my plan.
will the husband probably be annoyed with me? yes- but i don't care.
he works 12 hours a day. i work 9. i also carry around another human being & chase around a miniature person.
i cook, clean, do laundry, stuff diapers, run errands, take care of animals, put lunches together & do life in general- so yeah. i'm just as tired as he is. but it still has to get done.
the husband isn't lazy by any means.
...well, in regards to putting his clothing in the hamper, wiping his beard hair off of the bathroom counter, courtesy flushing, flossing & rinsing off his dishes- yeah, he's pretty lazy.
but with housework stuff- he's not. but he usually needs me to annoy the shit out of him before he actually gets started. so i'm going to do what i do best. be really really annoying until it gets done. the fact that it's football season doesn't help my cause- but it's ok. i can do it.
and there you go. let's all cross our fingers that my most annoying side will really shine through.
