Then at around 2 am I woke up feeling miserable myself. I wondered if I had caught something from Micah first of all, but the cramping and belly tightening and aching back seemed more pregnancy-related than anything else! I tossed and turned for more than an hour - my mind starting to race with thoughts of waking Erik up to go to the hospital, but the feeling subsided eventually and I fell asleep. Today I haven't felt quite like myself though. My belly actually feels sore from all the tightening and I don't have much of an appetite. We went to Costco this morning and I ended up having to find a place to sit down because I was starting to feel nauseated and light-headed. I hope this is not just the flu or something!
Thankfully I felt well enough this afternoon to get to my pregnancy massage appointment at the Wild Orange Spa! A girl could really get used to that kind of pampering! There were so many pillows to hold and hug that the belly didn't get in the way of a great massage. The hour went by far too fast! Thanks, Erik, for an AMAZING birthday present!
When I came home I found my little construction-worker in the making. Erik started these nails in a piece of wood and Micah was having fun trying to hammer them in. Whenever I ask Micah where Erik is during the week, his answer is always the same "Work, Todd, Hammer". (Erik works with Todd in case you've forgotten). Erik's hoping to be able to employ Micah for cheap labour in a year or two!
Anyway, that's all for today. I'll keep you all updated if something more starts happening with this baby. I'm too afraid to get my hopes up about how I've been feeling because I could really eat my words if I'm still pregnant 3 weeks from now!
Oh and one more thing - I think I realized the problem I've been having with commenting on other blogs. For the last week, I haven't been able to comment on anyone's blogs who have not yet switched to Beta... So, there's one more reason for you to make the switch!!
