SO close!7:51:00 PMCourtney Hale
Hello all! Had my Doctor's appointment today and my belly was looking HORRIBLE so I figured something was wrong. Turns out my skin is reacting very poorly to the stretching. Basically, the baby is growing perfectly but my belly is not. =( My skin freaked out! So it is all red and raised and looks AWFUL, but she said I am doing everything right (moisturizing, not scratching) and she prescribed a cream to help. She did say that I need to take it easy to allow the swelling in my feet to go down. I told her I didn't think I had been THAT busy at which point she said that our definitions may be different. I know, I KNOW. Moving on, everything else was perfect. No weight gain (part of why my belly is stretching too much) and perfect blood pressure. Baby sounded great. I have one more appointment in 2 weeks at which point they will do an ultrasound to check her position and size for labor.... then I start going every week! Wow. I am at THAT point.
I purchased some organizers and a diaper caddy so I can get her room organized. I have so many of the items from the shower just sitting about b/c I prefer to have a nice specific place for everything before I put it away. Now I do! Earlier this week I washed all of her bedding, clothing, etc. with Dreft so it is all ready! The crib is finally made up and looks WONDERFUL. =)
The house is SO close. Just random things left, like hanging pictures or taking things to goodwill.
The baby shower video is up on youtube. =)
