mostly weekend re-cap - very little p-word until the purple font but mostly embarrassing symtpoms
I have been meaning to jot this down since Saturday. My co-worker informed me that the b.lue lig.ht spe.ci.al store was having huge sales. I haven’t been in the bl.ue l.ight s.pecia.l store in probably 15 yrs. She said she saw maternity clothes for $3. Um that was all I needed to hear to run out and see what I could find. I work in a job that I am allowed to wear “regular clothes” 90% of the time. We have lab coats, uniforms, bdu’s and other protective coverings but, no matter how hard you try, you will get something on you. It’s just part of the job. So I have clothes I wear to work and clothes that are not for work. Some are in the same category and some are not.
So when I hear $3 I immediately think – SAVINGS – who cares if I get stuff on them, I can throw them away if I can’t get it out. I ended up with 4 pair of jeans(pants) and one shirt all for $22. That, my friends, is a steal. I have a clothes addiction – Much like having a purse addiction and shoes addiction …. I LOVE clothes.. I usually LOVE expensive clothes. But Saturday, I was diggin’ the more economical side of clothes shopping. Especially since I am almost in that 3rd trimester – I call that the home stretch. (I still should ask my dr, when they start counting a pregnancy in the 3rd trimester- However I did love Nancy’s answer of 26w6d! That just tickles my fancy! Thanks Nancy.)
Ok so after My super savings, I decided that I needed to celebrate with a pedicure.. I mean what else is a girl to do on a rainy day in Fl. So I tried out this new salon ….. OMG worst pedicure I have ever had … SOoooooo very uncomfortable. I was highly disappointed. I should state that I am a girl that has received many pedicures in my lifetime. I think pedicures are simply divine. I haven’t had one since pregnancy. I was afraid of all the hoopla. Wouldn’t you know it – this lady made my feet bleed. She scrubbed incredibly too hard on the side of my foot with those pu.mi.ce st.on.es. I was a nervous wreck after that. I have since been cleaning it with p.er.ox.ide and ne.osp.r.oin. I asked the peri yesterday and he assured me it looked ok. But I just can’t help but feel a little worried. But the toes are blue and lovely! But you can bet I will never be back there.
I am 26 weeks today. I am definitely larger than before. I am feeling it. I am only up 2 more lbs since my last ob appointment. That’s a total of 8 lbs. ( I am still blaming 1 of those lbs on Mini –since he is getting bigger and I had plenty of extra room to start off with) My sciatic nerve has its moments of hate but mostly controllable by sitting down and putting my legs up. The weirdest thing that I can think of – no, one of the weirdest things I can think of is that by the end of the night,(tmi alert) I have this weird pressure feeling on my pubic bone (I guess that’s where it is) that causes me to have a hard time opening my legs up ( yes I typed that). Like when getting in a car, or walking up stairs, getting out of the bed ..etcs. that movement .. the pressure and doing those actions are noticeable uncomfortable. The other weirdest thing I can describe is – the automatic pee button. This is what my husband and I are calling it. Mini either moves or kicks or does some kind of C.hin.ese wa.ter to.rt.ure trick that can instantly make me pee myself…. (YES, I am doing k.egal.s-have been for weeks) Friday night, going to run an errand, I was on the cellphone with E, locking the door, had my sunglasses and purse in hand – ya know being ultra coordinated. And the automatic pee button was tripped – I dropped everything, desperately tried to get back inside to the restroom and did not make it. I was laughing so hard that It did not help matters at all. Last night, E and I were taking 26 week pics and he made me laugh so hard that I almost did it again … I was so mad at him.. and he – just kept snapping pics while I was wobble running to the bathroom … Boy is he going to get it.
Also – shower talk is in the works. I have to say that I know I posted my fears about that – there are still in the back of my mind, but I am really excited also. Now only if I could get the courage to order this dress … It is hard to justify spending money on a maternity dress when it won’t be worn much. (plus my husband keeps reminding me that the ribbon is pink – and I keep reminding him I AM still the Queen of The Pink)
