Week 29

Phew! Made it just in time for week 29's post--week 30 has been a busy one!

Highlights this week:
*Seeing the shape of little feet pressing against my belly
*Feeling even more and even stronger movements from baby
*Getting to drink 15 oz. of orange juice for my glucose test instead of that nasty artificial orange crap you usually have to drink
*Enjoying my last week of being 33 years old
*Lazy days, baking, knitting and playing in the park with my boys

Lowlights this week:
*Finding out the college where I work denied my year-long maternity leave because I'm 6 weeks shy of getting my tenure
*Using nearly every pillow in the bed (that'd be five) just to keep comfortable while sleeping
*Heartburn from 10am until bedtime every day
*Aching hips

T took these pictures of me at our favorite park on a brisk fall Sunday. I must apologize for my hairdo--the result of unwashed hair and a lazy mama. Had I know it looked like a rooster when I left the house that day I would have just put it in a pony tail. Regardless, we had a wonderful day, swinging at the playground, looking for fall leaves and running around the park.

I'm enjoying my last week of being 32 (although I had to check as I couldn't 100% remember my age... is that just me?!) Hope you have a great day next week.

Oh, and those last 3 lowlights, ugh I remember those SO well. Hard luck about the mat leave - that's a real bummer.

Sorry to hear about your mat leave!

Have you tried peppermint essential oil for the heartburn? It saved me from drinking bottles of gaviscon. A drop rubbed a couple of inches below my sternum - or wherever I felt the heartburn helped a lot. Peppermint might also help with the hip pain - I'm getting some hip pain now and have been rubbing on peppermint oil...just don't get it in your eyes or you'll feel the cool burn there, too! ;)

Happy almost your birthday!
