This weekend I stuffed my face, treated myself to a pedicure, hung out with friends, and basically just tried to relax. I wasn’t seriously concerned about going into labor while we were at our friends house (3 hours away from my Doctors/hospita!), but it was always a possibly. The good news is that we are home safe and sound — and I am still pregnant!
My weekend started at the Ravenous Pig with my brother, Ben, and sister-in-law, Christina.
It was a fun dinner, we caught up and had some good laughs and great food including their soft-pretzels, shrimp tacos, salad with beets, goat cheese, and pistachios (I think I’ve found a new favorite salad!), lamb, and “pig tails” for dessert.
It’s crazy to me that Ben and Christina have almost been married for a year. It feels like we just made the trek out to San Franciso/Sonoma (I’m super jealous – they are heading back out there in a few weeks to celebrate their anniversary). Dinner was great – although I might love Cask & Lader a little bit more…
Saturday was pretty low key. Baseball was cancelled and while L and I were at dance/getting our nails done – Dan ran some boy errands with B and installed the infant seat.
We then headed down to the West Palm Beach area around 1:30 and lounged around with our friends for the rest of the afternoon/night.
Today was much of the same. The kids were up waaaay too early, but I guess I expected it! We spent most of the day swimming/laying out by the pool (I got a little swimming in, but I’m a super wuss and the water was COLD) most of the day before heading to a late lunch and then heading home.
I’m feeling slightly exhausted right now, despite relaxing. I was up most of the night with irregular contractions (that then lasted the majority of the day as well). I am feeling better now, so I’m hoping tonight will be a better night! For what it’s worth, I vaguely remember the same thing happening with L – so I’m not thinking they actually mean anything – but who knows, Thursday is a full moon!
Truthfully, as uncomfortable as I was today, I still want to make it through this week — I have a hair appointment, book club, and my rescheduled family pictures on Sunday. Obviously, there’s no room in that schedule to have a baby 🙂
On that note… I’m off to have a low key Sunday night. Hope everyone had a great weekend and a Monday that doesn’t completely suck!
