After my work meeting ended last week, I got to spend some time with my family on Friday and Saturday. It kind of felt like my last time to be "the baby."
My mom shows her love through food and delighted in making my favorite dishes throughout the weekend. My feet really started swelling at my work meeting on Wednesday, I think a combination of the warmer weather and sitting all day. So, by the time I arrived at my parents' house on Thursday afternoon, they were really puffed up. My mom would barely let me get off the couch, and you didn't hear me complaining.
The temperatures were record-breaking here in the Northwest this weekend. I am not usually that bothered by heat, but let me tell you, it really has thrown this pregnant gal for a loop. The anxious feeling from last week has died down a bit, but I am still constantly breathless and my resting heartrate is still a lot higher than usual. I do have my next OB appointment this week and plan to bring up my concerns. Between those symptoms and my feet and legs being so swollen, I am pretty uncomfortable right now.
My parents have air-conditioning, which was lovely, but my husband and I do not. Which really sucked. At least we don't have much humidity, but last night was still extremely uncomfortable. And in true Northwest-fashion, following a heat wave, there will be no fans or window air conditioning units in stores for at least a couple of weeks. I told my husband that we are going to have to find one for at least our bedroom or I won't survive the summer. Or he won't survive the summer, since he is the one that said that having full air conditioning installed this spring was a waste of money.
He did redeem himself for the lack of air conditioning by having the house completely clean by the time that I arrived home on Sunday. It was nice to walk in, expecting to have to dust, vacuum, and mop, only to find it already done. Okay, I'll forgive him for the lack of cold air.
I did have a second shower this weekend. I don't have any pictures right now, so I will wait to post about it when I get some.
