Random Friday

. I have had the same thing to eat for breakfast everyday this entire pregnancy (with the exception of being out of town or not making it to the grocery store a couple of times). 3 egg whites (cooked like you would cook a fried egg, not scrambled), 1 whole wheat english muffin toasted with light cream cheese. And before I found out about the GD I had a glass of Simply Orange juice. It was the perfect blend of protein, dairy and carbs to keep me from feeling queasy at the beginning and I loved it so much I just kept it up. Plus it's healthy!

2. We have a Good Friday service at church tonight and I am so looking forward to it. This is probably my favorite service the whole year. It is quiet, intimate and so perfect in preparing for Easter.

3. Have I mentioned that I've had swollen feet since probably 24-25 weeks? It started that they would get swollen when I sat or stood for too long and I could prop them up and they would go back to normal. But about 3 weeks ago the swelling doesn't leave. It will go down slightly, but they are constantly swollen. And Wednesday I noticed that I am now swollen from just above my knees down to my toes. I'm hopeful that my twitter friends are right and that it will go away about a week after Hudson is born!

4. We rearranged Hudson's room again this week. There really aren't that many ways it can go...only 2 actually. We just moved it back to how we originally had it set up. Our glider and ottoman have been in for about 3 weeks now, we just need to find the time to get to Austin to pick it up from the store. And by we, I mean John. I'm done traveling. 

5. This week has been so busy causing our house to be a mess! I'm planning on getting it all cleaned up today and then enjoying a less busy week next week. Especially since TAKS will be going on so there isn't much I can do at work so I'm hoping to get some of my baby books read.

6. A very very sweet woman at church has cooked us dinner TWICE this week. It has been such an amazing blessing. Not to mention, she cooked for us once last week also...3 times in less than 2 weeks. Unbelievable.

7. Next weekend is my big shower at church. I am so excited to get to celebrate Hudson with so many people who love him so much already. And my mom and John's mom are coming and possibly John's sister. My sister was going to come, but she is going to save her days off for when Hudson actually makes his appearance.

8. Speaking of Hudson's arrival...8 weeks from today! I am 32 weeks today and I can't believe he will be here in less than 2 months. We are so ready.

9. This week John and I started watching season 4 of Mad Men. We started watching the series through Netflix about a year ago and finished season 3 just after season 4 started last summer so we missed it. We are watching season 4 now and will be ready for season 5 this summer. We love this show!

10. I was supposed to have my breastfeeding class last night but the nurse didn't show up. Apparently there was an emergency AND she forgot about it. I really just think she forgot and they threw in the emergency thing to make it sound more okay. But honestly, I was sort of thankful because that meant I was able to go home and prop my getting bigger every day feet up.

  1. So excited for you... try to embrace these last few weeks of silence before he gets here and make sure to get lots of rest too... as far as the swollen feet, I never got it but my friend that was pregnant at the same time and had her baby the day after me did... her dr told her it was because she wasnt drinking enough water... so try to drink large quantities of agua :) and another helpful hint... buy a vibrating foot bath and soak your feet in it everynight.... it will help too :)
