First things first, update on the doctor’s appt. Stats updates: I’m 39-weeks and 1-day pregnant, B/P 118/80 (it was high the first time that the doctor made her do it again), baby’s HR strong and fast (probably b/c I came from the gym), Weight is 1.5 lbs. up (a total of 21 lbs.) and I am about 1 cm. dilated. I’m happy I’m dilated, but really it means absolutely nothing to me. I could be 1 cm. dilated for days/a week and nothing… It’s really when baby’s ready to come out. So, we’ll just wait and see. She says I look great and added to have sex. I asked her if that was really true, and she said yes… It is a hump day… TMI.
I asked her if I could come to group run on Saturday if I haven’t delivered and she said yes and that she would be there — she’s on call this weekend. She thinks I’ll go this weekend, but I don’t know. Like I said, it’s when the baby’s well and ready. She did add that I was super active so she wouldn’t be surprised if I ended up with a longer labor. For my sake, I hope if that happens, it’ll be a shorter recovery. She also said that there’s a group run every Thursday in Millburn (where I work) that she holds, at 6AM. She said post-pregnancy I should come. I got excited, but also forgot that I’ll have a major responsibility… A baby. HA!
So after discussing running shoes, running groups, and upcoming races – we parted ways and said we’d see each other at group run on Saturday. I still have to call the office back to set up my appointment on Monday. Their computers were down.
Anyway, last night we watched Kung Fu Panda 2 with Sabrina and Julian.
We wanted to take the kids out to eat beforehand, but after researching all the movie times, there was NO way we’d be able to pick them up, eat dinner and get to a movie. The times were all bad! In fact, the traffic was crazy that we ended up being 15-minutes late to the movie. I don’t think we missed much as there were previews. While we waited on a long line for tickets (I guess because there weren’t many people working considering it is a Tuesday evening) and popcorn and candy, Julian asked if I had my camera as he wanted to take a few pictures.
He was disappointed that I cut off the head of the Tranformers, and he gave me a bit of advice. He told me I should have moved back some more. My response, “If I moved back, I wouldn’t have been able to see YOU in the picture!” Apparently, he did not care if you couldn’t see him.
I used the bathroom while we waited for the drinks and popcorn (which took forever) and then some girl online fainted. Pedro suspects pregnancy. Anyhow, we didn’t really want the kids to see that so we hurried them along to the side to get our napkins, straws, and raced to the theater.
The movie was good. We laughed and I think some may have cried… It was about 8:35 when it ended and it was about their bedtime. It also started raining, so Pedro pulled the car up to us. While we waited, I took some snapshots of the kids.
On our drive home, Julian discussed having a sleepover at our house. We told him that next sleepover may include their new cousin. How exciting!
Okay, debating on what to do for lunch. Bosses will be out… Trader Joe’s, a mani/pedi?!? So many options. I’ll probably end up doing nothing. HA.
Happy Hump Day!
