Seven Quick Takes

Today marks the third day I’ve been laid out on my recliner from back spasms. I woke up at 5:00 this morning in tears. I got an ice pack and tried to arrange myself on my billions of pillows. No luck. I tossed and turned. I’m currently propped on my recliner trying not to stretch or move. So that’s that. And here’s some more random for you.

Sometimes my tongue is aggravated when I eat a lot of citrus. The other night I had bruschetta for dinner and afterwards I said, “That was too much acid for me.” Stephen replied in a VERY low voice, “Do you need some base?”

Want to know why 4 year olds shouldn’t chew gum? Because they will inevitably end up in an obstetrician’s waiting room next to a pregnant woman with a headache, smacking as if her life depended on it. I was this close¬†to holding my hand out under her mouth and saying, “spit. it. out.”

Also, why do men accompany their wives to the OB-GYN but wait in the waiting room? They just take up chairs and annoy everyone with their cell phone conversations. Either stay home or join your wife in the room. Stephen comes with me to most appointments but he comes back to the room with me.

My cousin’s cousin was pregnant with twins and had a c-section yesterday. Both babies were 7 pounds. That is 14 pounds of baby in your belly. Holy moly!

I got my hair cut for the first time in about 6 months last night. I feel so much better! I think it should be noted that my stylist was a dude named Angel.

My appointment went well yesterday. There was a bit of sugar in my urine but not enough to worry my doctor… just enough for me to know that I shouldn’t drink a root beer with lunch the days I have appointments. So they did that test and I was embarrassed, then she went to weigh me. I was prepared for about a 4 or 5 pound weight gain since 1) I had only gained 1 pound at my last appointment, 2) I feel a lot bigger, and 3) I ate out several times over the past week. I was not prepared, however, to find out that I gained 7 pounds. In 2 weeks. Seven pounds in two weeks. Which brings my total to 35 pounds. OH. MY! I’m trying not to freak out because, well, what can I do?! But my doctor says, “It’s okay, 40-45 is the norm.” Good to hear… but if she thinks that I’m only going to gain 10 pounds in 7.5 weeks, she’s a crazy lady!

I have my first shower tomorrow. I’m both excited and nervous.
