Good morning! How is your Thursday treating you?
As always, mine is going wonderfully as I think about all the things I have to be thankful for.
I am thankful for my gym’s pool that offers a slew of classes, which is pretty much a pregnant girl’s dream. I tried another class yesterday morning, and although I was the youngest participant by at least 30 years, I found parts of it challenging and plan to go back when Dan’s schedule allows. I am also thankful I went to the class because as soon as I changed into my swimsuit I could hear Ina telling Dan, “I miss Mommy and Baby Gary."
I almost climbed back in bed with them, but knew I was going completely stir crazy and needed to get out and move those muscles, which I am so glad I did.
Speaking of Ina, she still has a fever and is wheezing, but if we stay on top of her ibuprofen and albuterol schedule she mostly seems OK, which I am unbelievably thankful for. If she has a fever today, it will be Day 5, which I think means we need a second opinion on her situation, just in case.
I am also thankful for all my friends and family who have checked up on her. <3
I am thankful for my midwife’s super old bedside ultrasound machine.
Baby Gary was hiding from the doppler, so we couldn’t get his/her heart beat for more than a few seconds.
I think that is a good excuse to see the baby up close and personal, don’t you? We were able to see him/her kick and wiggle. I made my appointment for the gender-revealing-ultrasound in 4 weeks! I can’t believe that time has already come.
I am so thankful that Dan let me go to sleep last night after I couldn’t get albuterol-induced-hulk-Ina calmed down. She couldn’t even stay still to listen to me read her a book, which is so unlike her. I brought her downstairs to Dan and he told me to go to bed, which I happily did.
What are you thankful for?
