How do you like my fancy purple crutches? I just got back from the physiotherapist and just to mix things up the left side of my pelvis was posterior rotated today (last time it was right anterior). She manipulated it back in to place and I get to try a compression belt now, too. I'm doing everything thing I should be and I should just minimize moving around basically which is frustrating but is what I'm going to have to do.
This week the Commonwealth Games are in Glasgow so the boys went to the badminton on Sunday (train was cancelled and we couldn't park close enough for me to walk so I dropped them off) and we all went to the athletics on Monday. Blondie Boy is really enjoying them and we are going to watch the road race go past NBH's Dad's house Sunday morning and then the boys have the Squash on Sunday evening where BB will get to see a medal ceremony. I might join them (we have enough tickets) depending on how I'm feeling since you can feel worse before better after manipulation.
The weather has turned here and has cooled off quite a bit into the 60's again. It makes sleeping at night much more comfortable temperature wise! Last night NBH and I got to go for a 7 course tasting menu that I won through Yelp at the Finnieston which was lovely; it focused on the best of Scottish seafood with crab, mackerel, trout, salmon and the most gorgeous heirloom tomatoes with goats cheese. YUM! We have a special surprise for Blondie Boy tonight and I can't wait to see his face when he figures it out :)
*How far along?: 31 weeks
*How big is baby?: A pineapple; no wonder I'm so freaking sore the baby has spikes.
*Maternity clothes?: Yes and I'm thrilled that tops were getting too short around this stage last time and I'm not just some behemoth of a beached whale this time around
*Sleep?: I tend to wake up with one side totally numb & have to switch to the other side OR wake up on my back and go "oh crap I'm not supposed to be on my back"
*Best moment this week?: Going to the Commonwealth Games! I saw an athlete with one leg, drop his crutches to throw a discus and win bronze--I feel stupid about complaining after seeing that (although I bet his pelvis is perfect).
*Movement?: Yup. This baby's movements are much stronger than Blondie Boy's and they make my stomach contort into strange shapes much more than I ever remember BB doing.
*Food cravings?: I really wanted McPhabb's Mac and Cheese (and I got it!) earlier this week but I think that was because it was a dull, grey and wet day
*Labor signs?: No
*Belly button in or out?: Innie; I think I've given up putting my belly bar back in.
*What I miss: Not being sore
*What I'm looking forward to: I've got a surprise planned for Blondie Boy tonight that I think will blow his mind
*Milestone: 2 months left until my section
