Thursday Things

What an emotional week. I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to put this week behind me (not forget it, but you know what I mean).

1. We have an exciting weekend planned – and none of it involves me giving birth, so I hope we can stick with our original plans. Tomorrow night, Dan and I are having dinner with my brother and sister-in-law at Ravenous Pig. I’ve never eaten at Rav Pig before but it’s definitely touted as one of the best restaurants in Orlando. I’m just a little bit excited. Saturday afternoon we are driving down to S. Florida to visit friends – actually the same friends we went to Tallahassee with last year. We haven’t seen them since then!

Just hoping the rain stays away!! #gonoles #FSU

Just don’t tell my Dr. Shhhh!

2. Baby stuff…

I’m 37 weeks now, which means I am full term. Woo-hoo! I did, unfortunately, test positive for GBS. I pretty much expected it, but blah. I’m not worried about the antibiotics during labor/delivery (it’s just going through my IV that I’ll get anyway), but I’m a touch paranoid after what happened to L. I just keep telling myself that the odds are very, VERY minimal that it could happen again.

I went to the Dr. on Tuesday and had my first “check.” I’ll spare you the details, but I kinda forgot how uncomfortable that whole things is. I’m pushing the baby out of WHERE again? Those who have had babies know what i’m talking about. I thought it was funny that the nurse had me undress and then after taking my normal measurements my Dr. asked if I wanted him to check me. Umm… you couldn’t asked me this BEFORE my pants were off? I probably would have said no, but, I mean, the pants were already off. I also figured it would be good to know if there was anything going on before we go out of town on Saturday (by the way, we are totally not supposed to be going out of town – but it’s not like there isn’t a hospital or 10 near where we are going). For all of you on the edge of your seats – the verdict was that labor was not imminent, like ever. No surprise there. Babies love my uterus.

I haven’t hit that point where I NEED to have the baby for my mental sanity – but I am ready for the baby to come. Even my short-term disability paperwork has been submitted! I swear the baby had a growth spurt last night because I woke up feeling so incredibly huge today. How do people give birth to multiples? God, I’m so whiny.

3. I was wearing Aveeno BB Cream, but ran out and the store was out of it (because you know, it’s only sold at one store) — so I ended up with Garnier’s Oil Free BB Cream instead. I know this girl LOVES the one she wears, so I figured it was worth a shot.


I think I like it – although I feel like it makes my face look more matte. It doesn’t make my face break out though, so I’ll stick with it for now!

4. I love this.  31 Signs You’re a Florida State Seminole.


Yep. Most of these are true. Some of them don’t apply to me though – since they weren’t there when I was there. #old

5. I did another quick at home workout tonight. I was going to go to the gym, but I talked myself out of it. AGAIN. I didn’t really want to tackle the weight room and I plan to walk on the treadmill tomorrow morning. So I did this squats and lunges workout instead. I wanted to do 5 rounds, 10 reps each (with 10/20lb weights), but I was done after 3.


If you can’t tell, I’m focusing on getting that baby to move DOWN. I’ve also been spending a lot of time sitting on stability ball and doing some yoga positions. Not sure if this will help me at all, but it’s worth a shot!

Anyone have any labor inducing tips for me? You’d think I’d have some to share – but nope!

Hope everyone is surviving the week!

      I always think it’s funny when that happens — nothing like getting out the situation just like you go into it in the first place :) It’s never worked for us, but it’s definitely worth a try!

    I don’t have any tips on getting the baby out, I’m not exactly sure I know what did it for me. I CAN however tell you I was busting some serious moves in the shower when my water broke. No kidding. I cranked up the music and shook my hips like Beyonce on crack. I too was trying to get that head in the go position….apparently something went right. :)

    I’m gonna try the oil free one next! I just bought some more so I don’t run out on travel and the store only had the one kind. Because, yeah, that’s only sold one place too. Hee. So glad you’re trying it!

    I have the Loreal BB Cream too if you wanna try that one out. I don’t really care for it as well but I use it now and then.

    I am a Cover Girl BB cream user (I think they call it CG smoothers?) and it has SPF so I’m being responsible using it. Also: always BOGO 50% off at Ulta.

    Good luck with getting that baby out of you. I have no advice, but I’ll be cheering for you? Sure. Let’s go with that.
