Pregnancy: Week 39

Another week under our belts and no signs of Baby L.

It was fairly low key in our household. We enjoyed a quiet Easter and a quiet week. I finished work last Thursday, so I’ve been taking care of odds and ends, cooking and prepping paleo food for post-baby arrival, CrossFitting, and enjoying some pampering.

Food prep – one of the easiest things I can do, especially for the hubs, is whip up some paleo breakfast breads and freeze them to use once our parents leave. I made the following: carrot, zucchini, cinnamon strudel and lemon poppy seed. YUM! I also made two meatloafs (I seriously make a mean and flavorful meatloaf), three containers of spaghetti sauce, and marinated some pork tenderloin to freeze. Plus, I stocked the freezer with lots of grilling meat so we can easily whip up dinners.

As the temps in Phoenix have increased, sadly, so have my feet. I’m experiencing swelling, bruising and aching in my feet and ankles. No bueno. To help, on Monday, I had an awesome adjustment from the chiropractor. She applied some heat ultrasound therapy to my swollen feet and that helped to reduce the swelling. Tuesday, I treated myself to an amazing massage. He worked me from head-to-toe, but paid extra attention to my feet. I melted on the table it felt so good!

Wednesday was our weekly doctor appointment. While there’s no change in dilation, she said I was “loose” and she could feel the baby’s head. She told me to stay active, hydrated, and pampered. No problem following those instructions! As for my feet, it’s the time of year and point in my pregnancy, so she wasn’t surprised.

My mom arrived on Tuesday and we hosted my aunts for a yummy dinner. Wednesday, we ventured to their house to enjoy the pool and another family dinner together. So fun having family around. Since babykins is staying put, they ventured north to enjoy Sedona and the Grand Canyon. Love that they are getting a mini-sisters trip out of this visit, too.
