A Day at 36 Weeks

I knew I shouldn't have posted that Green Smoothie thing.  I spent most of today horizontal on the couch.  Woke up this morning feeling okay and headed to a 7 a.m. chiropractor appointment (with my green smoothie in the car).  While there I started feeling dizzy, but my 'normal' pregnancy light-headed dizzy.  I got adjusted...which, by the way, is getting harder and less comfortable to do with this extremely low hanging belly.  But that low hanging belly also makes the visits necessary so that I can move.  I headed out and on the drive home broke into a cold sweat and nearly blacked out.  Not fun.  I just kept praying to my guardian angel begging to get me home safely.  I was close to pulling over but wasn't sure if that would make things any better and each time I was about to, I would get enough momentum to keep going.  I did make it home, thankfully, and spent most of today breathless and dizzy on the couch.  My seven year old took good care of me but man, it is hard to have an off day when you're a stay-at-home mom with little ones to look after!  I don't like at all being like this and am really hoping this is just my body needing a little break from this nesting craziness.

I do have to say the highlight of the day was when in a desperate moment for some quiet, I scrolled through Netflix to see what, if anything, I could let the boys watch in good conscience.  The Bells of St. Mary's allowed some very energetic little boys a few moments of quiet. However, I soon after realized that (of course) the most memorable part of the movie for these bundles of boy was the boxing lesson given by the nun to the little boy...and that, of course, was what the rest of the evening has entailed.  And now I watch my husband training the boys in how to box.  So much for that attempt to quiet things down...

  1. I hope you feel better! The same thing happens to me in pregnancy (usually at Mass)-very weird. Eat a hearty breakfast and take it slow in the morning.

    That's funny about the boxing. I like the part where the children act out the Christmas play. So cute.

  2. Yes!! Mass has always been where it seems to hit the hardest! Especially when it comes to kneeling and standing up and down and being in the morning. Thankfully, it has been so much better this time around! I'm thinking the other day had to do with already feeling a little off and then having to lie down for the chiropractor on my back and then on my side and then having to get up and get moving right away. It must be something with blood sugar and pressure and the up and down stuff! My sisters deal with the same thing. I'm so glad I don't have to worry about high blood pressure but this certainly carries its own issues as well!

    Thanks for the comment!
