Nothing new to report. Everything seems to be going along just fine. I passed the 6 week mark and am really grateful to get this far this time. Every day that passes I'm so happy that I haven't had any bleeding ... so happy to just get through another day pregnant.
I'm still very anxious about my ultrasound on Thursday. I just want everything that is supposed to be there to actually be there. I know I have no control over this but I really hope I don't get unlucky two pregnancies in a row. I'd be devastated.
I'm slowly realizing that I can't do the things I normally do partly out of exhaustion and partly because this pregnant body can't, or shouldn't, be lifting heavy things. I am 99% sure I'll be getting an IK.EA crib and I also need a few more things from the store, namely some bookshelves so I can move the books out of baby's room. I can't lift the boxes any longer so I think I'm just going to have to order everything and have it shipped. Once it is in my house I can take everything apart box by box, piece by piece and move them individually.
I've sort of had to give up on my yard for the year. With the water ban in place until August 1st I can't really plant trees or shrubs this year anyway. But I'm cutting back on the number of flower pots I will plant. I have set out 2 smaller pots out front so my yard doesn't look like a complete disaster compared to my neighbours'. I picked up some impatients today but I'm not entirely thrilled with them. I'd wanted the New Gui.nea ones but I didn't see them anywhere. I'll keep looking but if I find the NG ones I might pick up a few and use the little impatients as filler. If not, I'll just use what I have and pick up a couple other things to throw in there.
I've noticed that I'm getting back pain and pelvic pain when I sit or lay in certain positions. I had some really seriously sharp cramping yesterday. It may have been as a result of how I was sitting or moving because it did improve when I moved. But it did take a while. I think I need to invest in a good body pillow already. Any recommendations for me?
