Only a few more weeks! I have decided June 11th will be my last day of work assuming this baby doesn’t show up first. I don’t really think this baby will be showing up early. Of course what do I know! He is in charge and he isn’t letting me know. I am still upset about having to get an IV when I get to the birth center. I am going to talk to them some this week about it so maybe I will be a bit more comfortable with it. I am hoping it is just one bag and then I am done, but I think it depends on how long I am in labor which really sucks. I don’t want a hep-lock and I don’t want them having to give me multiple IV’s. Having some thing stuck in my arm is really going to distract me!! I finally tracked down my pediatric records. Luckily I had them transferred to my family practitioner when I started going there otherwise I don’t think I would have ever found them. The nurse I talked to said there are 107 pages…. I was given Amoxicillin 11 times by 1980 so she is assuming I have no issues with Penicillin. However, I still don’t know for sure what I had an allergic reaction to in the early 90’s. What if I developed an allergy to it? I am still really nervous about getting it. I honestly can’t remember the last time I had an antibiotic. It very well could have been the time I had the allergy in middle school. I don’t really take a lot of drugs. Don’t trust them. So everyone say a little prayer that I don’t break out in hives during labor. I think that may push me over the edge.
There really isn’t much else going on around here. Just cleaning, organizing and preparing for the little guy’s arrival. I try to stay active and it was a really busy weekend so today I decided to just hang out and do nothing. I think I needed a day of doing nothing. I have another busy week, but next week should be pretty low key. I am hoping to get up to the pool at nights because I really enjoy being in the water.
Today I tried to get some more artistic maternity pictures. It didn’t exactly go very well though. I am waiting for my remote to arrive from Amazon so I had to have Casey take the pictures. I got one I really like. One that is okay, but I was hoping to get a few more. I want to try again next weekend. It is hard giving Casey instructions, but setting up the tripod and using the remote won’t be much easier. I will put the two I like below and my usual weekly picture.
