So week 35 continued with the hip issues. I guess this is here to stay until Sophia joins us. In a nutshell, I feel like her head is the size of a small melon. It's like she's head down, pushing her feet up against my right ribs and using her hands to pry open my pelvis. Seriously. That's what it feels like. About half of the time, there is great pressure in the area as a result. Some of that time it's coupled with nerve pain (sciatic?). Then there's the off and on low back pain. But I do praise God I haven't had the spasms too much recently. And I still have a month until due day. As long as I'm full term, I'm praying she comes sooner than later!
On the home front, things have been pretty relaxed in many ways. James has been pretty busy but during the day, the kids and I have not had too much going on. That's been nice, especially considering the way I feel. Sunday Benjamin woke up sick. He vomited three times before lunch. I feared a stomach bug. He was much better after his nap and never had any other issues. I'm hoping the rest of us are in the clear and it may have just been something he ate. I did a LOT of laundry that day.
This weekend is my baby shower. I'm looking very forward to that. Of course the gifts are great but I love seeing friends that it can be hard to get together with on a regular basis. Many of my friends have 3+ kids and life gets a little more challenging to plan around all of them. My sister is coming into town for it as well and I haven't seen her since September. Should be a great weekend.
I still have not located what I'd packed for Sophia for the hospital. Oh well. I packed most everything for my hospital bags today. Mainly just haven't packed the few things that I'll use until then. I did like last time and wrote out a list of things to grab when it happens. Now to preregister!
