It’s official. I’m now a grumpy pregnant lady. My right knee hurts, my back hurts, the baby’s training for some sort of kick boxing event, I still have acne, I’ve begun to waddle, I’m out of breath, I have heart burn, I’m constipated, all I want is chocolate, and I am completely unmotivated to do just about anything besides be a couch potato. Welcome to 29 weeks Amanda! Well, it really does sound worse then it is. Like, my knee only hurts when I walk or stand, the baby only karate chops when I’m trying to relax, I’m only out of breath when I walk on any non-flat surface, and acne has only burdened my face.
Wil and I toured the ol’ Southern Tennessee Medical Center this week. We were first ushered into the paperwork room where I signed my name on many a line and I am still not positive that I didn’t sign away the rights to have my baby when the time comes, I might get someone elses. Then the lady asked if I needed to talk to the anesthesiologist. Is this really a question? I said hell yes. Okay, technically, I want to go all natural but the option better be there for the good stuff….just in case. Then we saw the birthing rooms and recovery rooms. It’s no Best Western (eww) that’s for sure but it will do because I don’t plan to be there long.
Something that concerns me is that I have no questions. The nurse tour guide was like, “Any questions?” and I was like, “Nope”. Wil did ask if he was able to be with the baby the whole time after delivery which got a yes response and I asked about shots the baby would get after it was born and if the epidural has degrees of strength but beyond that, I am clueless.
As I wait for Wil to come and get me so we can go eat ( and I do mean eat, likes lots and lots), I ponder what we will do once we actually have this baby. It’s a head scratcher really………….
