This is my Mamavation post for Monday, October 11, 2010. This week is VOTING week – so please take a moment and vote for your favourite mamavation finalist – the winner will be announced next week Monday (O4ct. 18th) at the Mamavation Twitter Launch Party (I’m one of the special guests!).
How was your week last week? Did your drink your water? Get your beauty sleep? And eat your 7-8 servings of fruits and veggies? (Remember: fruit and veggies are chock full of fiber!).
This weekend was our Thanksgiving – so I ate FAR too much! That’s also why I’ve been MIA – we drove up 6 hours to my in-laws place right after work on Friday, and we’ve stayed until today. My mother in-law is a fantastic cook! I almost took a trip to Labour & Delivery on Sunday morning, but after lying down for and hour I realized my “problem” was that I’d eaten too much… Gas pains are very good at mimicking labour – I’m so glad that I didn’t embarrass myself 🙂
Normally I list a summary of what I accomplished here, but truthfully I didn’t accomplish much. I’m ok with this because my body is busy doing it’s biggest job ever – growing a BABY!! I’ve begun taking it easy because I have a history of delivering early – My 5 year old daughter was born at 36 weeks 0 days, and my 3 year old daughter was born at 38 weeks (truthfully I can’t remember how many days because it wasn’t nearly as traumatic as my first daughter’s birth was). I’m now in that pt your feet p and relax phase – the phase that drives me absolutely batty! I can’t wait to get my sweat on again!
This week I have my 36 week midwife appointment on Thursday. My hubby is coming so I’m super excited about that – he has yet to meet my midwives and I think it’s important for him to get to know them before the big day! I’ve taken Thursday off of work (I’ve accrued some vacation that I need to use up), and will be going to get my hair done – can’t wait because it’s been TWO YEARS since my last cut!
