My doctors appointment last week told us that my blood pressure has spiked a bit and it is something we need to keep an eye on. I am suppose to take it easy even more so and not do so much walking or using lots of energy and rest more. I already rest a ridiculous amount so the thought of laying around doing nothing even more so then I am now!? Ugh. However I am fortunate enough that they didn't demand bed rest of anything so I should be thanking my lucky stars.
We went with my father in law this weekend and picked out our crib and crib mattress... we should be receiving it this week. Still contemplating about rather or not we will set it up right away or not. We didn't go all crazy, nothing fancy. Just a simple understated white crib. Perfect to go with our bright bold colors. It was good to check those off of our To Do List, which FYI is not nearly as daunting as I had originally thought it would be. I made out my list last Friday because I felt so overwhelmed by what I thought we had left to do. But in all honesty once I got it down on paper it wasn't nearly as long as I had anticipated it to be. It all fit on a single page for instance.
This is the crib but in natural wood, the picture of it in white was too difficult to see.
It's only 7AM on Monday morning and I can already tell you it's going to be one of those days. As the weeks progress I am more and more ready to let my body have some time off before the baby get's here but unfortunately I don't think that is going to be much of an option in the coming weeks other then weekends. I think the next 2 - 5 weekends are going to entail me locking myself up in my room sleeping watching Netflix and not doing much of anything and enjoying my last days of solidarity... something I feel like I am going to miss and not get much of after d-day.
