It has been a crazy couple of weeks in the pregnancy department here at our house, so I thought I’d pleasure you all with a little update.
It all started two weeks ago (at approximately 4:52 am) when my uterus decided it had a mind of it’s own. Since then, I’ve been dealing with an irritable uterus – at least that’s what I’ve diagnosed myself with. This means anything I do gives me a contraction: standing up, rolling over in bed, sitting up, walking, laughing, sneezing… In fact, my contractions were so bad one evening that Dallan and I had to take a trip down to the hospital to get some medicine. Unfortunately, the medicine was only a temporary fix and my contractions are back. So, until my uterus figures things out, I am trying to keep my feet up. Can I just say, being lazy is hard work. Especially when you’re the type of person who goes from sunup to sundown. Thank goodness I work from home!
Has anyone else had experience with an irritable uterus? If so, what did you do to treat it? The doctor has me on Magnesium now but it doesn’t seem to be helping much.
Now that we are getting closer to my due date, I decided it was time get rid of all the extra decor loot I had sitting in the babies room. Let me tell you, this was a BIG job. I didn’t realize I was such a decor and craft supplies hoarder. I need help.
As of Saturday, we have a dresser, a crib, and a toy doll bed my neighbor built us sitting in there. We still need to purchase a rug, artwork, curtains, shelves…. The list goes on. Although the room isn’t completely finished, I thought I’d give you all a sneak peek. Enjoy!
