Today we snapped a few pictures to mark the 22nd week. I was wearing a dress for church. Already, the dress is getting a little shorter in the front! Oh well, what can I do?
This Sunday was a LONG day. We took a bunch of food over to the church for a pot luck following the service. We had a crock pot, cookies, 4 drinks, chips, cheese, grapes and I’m sure more. I had a rough time sitting through the service. After the service several families from our small group all ate lunch together. Then we headed over to a nursing home to have a mini church service with some of the elderly. I couldn’t make it through all of, but just about. The ride home – almost 45 minutes – was a killer. I came home and napped, but the rest of my day has been taken up with countless changing positions, none of which seem comfy. Strangely, the babies have been very, very active today!
This week, in general, has been very painful. After last Sunday’s strange tearing pain while unloading the dishwasher, I spent several days in misery. When the pain got really bad, I’d start puking like mad. I pretty much stayed confined to the bed Tuesday and Wednesday.
Thursday I began physical therapy. My right ribs still keep spasming. On my left side, I’ve still got this wretched pain from the sciatica and from what the doctor thought was the tearing of a ligament. The physical therapist confirmed some weakness in my left leg as well as some reflexes not responding very well. The therapist noticed how lopsided my belly is, too. I need these babies to better balance the load!
We picked up 2 swings from Craigs list this week. They are in pristine condition with no smell! The lady also gave us a bouncer for free. She had said the batteries corroded on the inside. Because the bouncer looked pretty much brand new, I had hopes of being able to clean the leads inside the battery compartment. But I can’t. I tried.
