Well, today marks my 38th week! I only have two more to go if she's destined to be on time. I forgot that I had a doctor's appointment today and I didn't shower this morning. I'm going to go home on my lunch and shower - even if I can't wash my hair - because the idea of having someone exam my girly area without being clean completely grosses me out.
On Monday Paul & I went to Target and we picked up a few things for Evy. I didn't get any mittens for her from the baby showers and I couldn't keep many that were handed down to me because the elastic had been over stretched. So, we picked up mittens, some socks, some hangers (I had no idea I'd need hangers this soon - but I do!) and last but not least her swing :) We got a coupon from Target for 10% off of anything left on our registry so we saved $15 off the swing which was nice. We also used the rest of our giftcards that were given to us at the baby showers. While at Target I also picked up some maxi-pads for after I give birth, and two comfy jersey-knit dresses. I picked up two because I knew one would be good for breastfeeding and the other would be nice for when I leave the hospital but I had no intention to keep both. However, after I tried them on they were both nice and good for a purpose after delivery so we're going to keep both.
Having those comfy dresses means I'm going to go home after work but before my doctor's appointment and change quickly. The last few times I've been so uncomfortable while waiting - they have you strip just the lower half and the tissue paper drapping they give me just doesn't cover me enough. So I figure I'll wear one of the dresses today instead, and then I can just take off my undies for the exam part. At the exam I'm going to bring up the fact that I'm still having problems with my ears (since I got that bad cold) and also how swollen my feet are getting. I know that it's normal for women to get really swollen these last few weeks - even if they didn't swell that much during pregnancy - but I want to make sure that I'm supposed to be swelling THIS much.
