I feel....

Bad? Good? Who the freak knows.

I woke up on Weds and needed to go to the doc for my 31 week check up (all is well, although I'm a little anemic). I have to admit to asking the doc about what it would take to write me out of work. We have a big production issue that is really stressful going on right now, and my boss is on freaking vacation for the past 3 weeks (with another week to go!). The doc said that she could write me a note to reduce my hours... um - yeah right. It's pretty much an all or nothing thing. I figure so long as a can work from home some days - I'll just keep it up for now.

But Weds night, I slept a total of 30 minutes. I was first fired up about work, and then the heartburn started, and then the twins started having a party in my belly. I had to get up on Thursday to go in for a non-stress test, and was stuck on my back for an hour while they tried to chase down Baby B - who decided that kicking the monitor was more fun than staying still and letting us track her heartbeat. I could barely walk when I got up.. my back hurt so badly.

So yesterday I was feeling pretty sorry for myself. I worked from home on the couch trying to type on my side (not so easy - I locked up two passwords that way). I couldn't sit on the floor and play with Hulk - things hurt too much. I mostly sit on the sidelines and watch Aaron do bath and bedtime (I don't even do the final bottle anymore! I basically have no lap!). I finished a really pretty shawl for a friend for her birthday weeks ago (the party is Saturday night), and I can't finish the damn thing because it hurts too much to bend over (I need to pin it out). I asked for help, got the shawl pinned out with Aaron's help, took a long hot shower, and went to bed at 7:30.

But then, last night I slept pretty well. Hulk woke up at 7:30 this morning!! And had normal poop (tell me a year ago I'd be excited about the consistency of another person's poop!? I'd have laughed). And my back feels pretty decent, and not too much else hurts. Aaron is away tonight and tomorrow night doing a job for some extra cash (woot! we need extra cash!). At first I was nervous, but my good buddy Suzanne is coming over Saturday and staying with us for the weekend, and we are road tripping to do some yarn shopping. And Sunday, the painting begins on the nursery! So, I went from feeling bad to feeling pretty good. Just need to survive one more work day and then enjoy my weekend!

Hang in there! Ouch on the back pain, though I'm glad to hear it's feeling better.

It's always best when the good rounds out the bad. Not so good the other way around.

I hope you're feeling great tonight and have a WONDERFUL weekend, hon!
