Dr. Update

I went to the dr this morning. After waiting an hour in the waiting room (don't worry, i expected to wait longer), I finally got called back. Dr. B and I went over what went down Tuesday and I told her I have been feeling great until I got up this morning to start getting ready. the more I was on my feet, the more I was hurting down low again. She decided to hook me up to her machine in the office to monitor the baby and see if I was having contractions again. After 20-30 minutes, we decided I wasn't having any contractions.

She checked me and I am still not dialated or effaced or anything (Thank GOD!) and so she told me to just take off of work the rest of the week, take it easy this weekend, and then return to work on Monday. She said to do only as much as I felt like I could, but not to overdo it or else I will be paying for it later. NO LIFTING TATUM! that was her big thing. Since Tatum is 30 pounds now, she said that was just way too much. We will see how well I keep to that since Tatum has become quiet a Mommy's Girl here lately.

She also told me to go get a maternity belt for support to see if that helped at all. I got one late this afternoon and I have been wearing it. I was not expecting it to be helpful at all, but it actually is working pretty well. It is kind of annoying though cause it is so tight(I could loosen it but that would defeat the purpose I am guessing). I am also a little nervous how it will fit under my clothes. I feel like it makes me look like I have a HUGE muffin top or something, so I bet its not too flattering under my dress clothes. I don't really care at this point though.

Anyway, the great news is Baby Boy Simpson is doing great! Moving all around and his heartbeat sounded wonderful again today. I just need to suck it up and make it a few more weeks.

I also need to figure out how I am going to get this nursery and tatum's room done....sigh
