Week 24 (July 13)
I turned 33 years old on the 12th. It was an extremely hot day. After church, we drove into Pembroke to return a video card and I looked at computers. I’ve decided my computer is no longer worth upgrading; nothing works properly on it and upgrading doesn’t work anymore. We had a quick A&W dinner at the mall and on our way home stopped at McDonald’s for a hot fudge sundae. I must say, there was not enough fudge on my ice cream! The next day I ordered a new computer from Canada Computers.
As far as pregnancy symptoms, things are normal but I’m not handling the heat very well. I don’t remember it being this bad when I was pregnant two summers ago. I have to sleep with two fans pointed at me, and even then I’m sooooooo hot. On Friday I saw my midwife. My blood pressure was 95/55 and baby’s heart rate was high 150s bpm. I declined the glucose screening test, but peed in a cup to test for UTI. Fundal height measured at 26 cm, which Suki said is alright but she can tell I have a lot of amniotic fluid. I have gained 21.2 lbs total.
That same afternoon we attended Stacey & Ryan’s barbecue. I was commissioned to bring dessert so I made raspberry cream bars and bakery style double chocolate chip cookies. The cookies were a huge hit!
Week 25 (July 20)
Mid-week I went to Prenatal Nutrition and we made chilli. Every time I go I receive a $15 PC gift card, which is pretty awesome! The gift card actually does help with buying extra vegetables since our local grocery store is over-priced. On Thursday, our church worship team set up their instruments at the waterfront and performed for an hour. Jordan played the drums. They did great and the weather was perfect. Baby Boy was pretty active this week! He’s also sitting pretty low, by the look of my belly.
